C is for Cookie!

Carlyn LOVES her Cookie Monster. She has about five or six cookie monster dolls, and she loves them all! She gets so excited when he comes on TV, and she even talks in a Cookie Monster voice!

Isn't This Backwards?!

Today, a week after Carlyn took three steps on her own...she has FINALLY crawled! Well, kind of...if that's what you want to call it! She keeps one leg up, and then scoots on her knee! She's so funny!

A Day in the Park

Today, I took Carlyn and Rosco to the park. They were both in bad moods and we all needed some fresh air! I love that in January, you can go to the park and play...without freezing! The grass doesn't look so pretty, but it was a fun day anyway!
Carlyn has been doing this new thing, where she acts just like an Italian, and talks with her hands...like, what are ya talkin' about?! You can see it in the last picture...I think she's yelling at Rosco!
He's SO much bigger than her!

10 Months Old

That's right...Carlyn is already 10 months old! I can't believe how fast the time goes by! It's crazy! She is really trying to walk right now. She walks with her push toys, but is still hesitant in starting...but once she gets going...she's off! She still has NOT crawled! She knows what she wants, and that is to walk! My guess would be in the next month, she'll be walking! She still tries to talk, and say EVERYTHING we say! It's so cute to watch her look at us so intensly, and then say the word! She is so proud of herself! Her new words are back, down, Pa Pa, puppy, and done! Here are some pictures from the past month...some people are saying she's starting to look more like me!!!
Playing office at my mom's work!
She LOVES her snacks!
Watching Dora!

Happy New Year!

This New Year's Eve, Jason and I went to dinner with our friends Megan and Colton, and then went back to our house, said Happy New Year at midnight (which I barely made it to), and then off to bed we went, at 1220! It was perfect!

This past year has been amazing! I finished up my pregnancy and it ended with a beautiful, healthy, happy baby girl! She is the best thing to happen to Jason and I. She is so much fun to watch, listen to, and so easy to LOVE! This year, I also decided that I no longer want to be a pediatric nurse practitioner. I am not sure what I want to be "when I grow up". I know an RN is enough, but it's just not what I want to do forever. I'm thinking I might want to be a legal nurse consultant...but we'll see what the future brings. So, for now, school is on hold. I don't want to spend all this money, and spend all this time for something I'm not sure I want to do. It's driving me crazy not to be in school and working toward something, but it's wonderful to have the time to spend with Carlyn. Jason is working extra shifts to save up to build his own gun! Him and his hunting stuff! But, it's what he loves to do. We can't wait to see what changes 2010 hold for us!
