Learning new things every day!

So these past few days Jacie has learned how to do 3 things.
1. Pushing herself on her hands
2. Full on belly laughing
3. Sticking her tongue out and spitting!!

I learned today that number 3 was taught to her by non other than my mom. She told me that she and Jacie have been practicing that. Well I told her that she has made feeding her an adventure. Jacie is so proud of herself when she does it! She will do it with a mouth full of sweet potatoes and then put on a huge smile for me! Its adorable but super messy.

Number 2 is right now only something I have been able to do make her do so I am pretty proud about that. Honestly I am not even doing anything super funny but it cracks her up EVERY TIME! I tried to get it on video but of course she stopped as soon as she saw the camera.

It is crazy how much she has grown and developed these last 3 weeks. She is so active and doing new things almost daily. She is at such a fun age right now! Only 1 more week until I have a 5 month old! That is so crazy!

Loving this time of year

Once it hit October 1 I just started getting so excited about the next coming months!! First of all I love Fall. I love the weather and the beginning of the holidays, but really who doesn't? I have been looking forward to the day where I had my own family to share and celebrate the holidays with and now that I do I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to it.

We have been celebrating and enjoying the season and it has been great! This weekend I even put out our Halloween decorations!!!
