Ok, I fixed my own problem! Yeah for me! An FYI for everyone else....if you upload pictures that are too wide for the column it will bump your sidebar down so it can fit your picture.
Happy Blogging Everyone!
Joelle is now 8 months old....my how time flies! Here is her list of accomplishments:
*She has been to 9 states and one foreign country (Canada).
*She has been on 12 airplane rides.
*She eats from a spoon very well. She loves fruits and cereals the best.
*She can successfully pick up cheerios with her fingers and put them in her mouth.
*She sits up to play and grabs toys out of baskets.
*She "creeps" on the floor....not quite crawling yet.
*No teeth yet.
*Hair is growing, just a little hard to see.
*She is still in her bucket car seat and can probably last a few more months.
*She LOVES listening to daddy play his guitar (she even holds the egg shaker and is the percussion section).
*She still sucks her thumb and plays with the pacifier.
*She loves to smile and laugh and sometimes scrunches up her face and laughs by blowing air in and out of her nose (I need to get a video camera to show it...it's so cute!).
*She still wears 6 month clothes and even some 3 month clothes.
*She loves to laugh at the dogs.
*She rubs her eyes when she's tired.
*She takes 3 naps a day and sleeps 11 hours at night. That totally makes up for the first 8 weeks of one hour asleep and 1 hour awake...that was terrible!

And the front of our house looks bare these days...but so much better! There were YEARS of weeds growing in unleveled flower beds. I spent 4 hours one afternoon weeding and Justin finished up over the weekend. Now there's just dirt, with flower bulbs soon to come, and the beds are now level thanks to Justin. We also threw out hanging planters with dead flowers that were so lovingly left by the owners.
