Jamens First Snow

It snowed all day here in Missouri, but Missouri snow fortunately is not as cold as Michigan snow or New Hampshire snow.  But it is colder than Georgia snow since we don't have any.  As you can see from the video Jamen wasn't quite sure what to think of the falling white flakes.  (and for those concerned we only kept him outside without a hat for 60 seconds and promptly brought him back inside)

Thanksgiving Pictures

This Thanksgiving we were blessed to be able to go to Uncle Ed and Aunt Merions house in Springfield MO.  We can't believe that we have family just over an hour away!

Thanksgiving morning Jamen joined the gang as we watched the Thanksgiving Day Parade
 Jamen was surprised at the disgraceful perfermance by the Detroit Lions

 After Thanksgiving Dinner we took Jamen to the Bass Pro World Headquarters in Springfield.  He loved watching the fish and the ducks in the different aquariums.

He also got to see Santa while he we were there!
But the highlight of the day for Jamen was the dog Nicky.  He thought she was the best thing ever...unfortunately Nicky thought Jamen was out to get her and spent the entire time hiding from Jamen.

sorry for how dim this video is...but I think it shows the relationship Jamen and Nicky have. 
Happy Thanksgiving!

A Lion Says Roar

This is kind of out of the blue. Jamen is an excellent mimicker, and today I thought it would be funny to roar at him...and he roared right back!

I'm still little

Jamen went to the doctor on Tuesday for his 7 month check-up and he weights 15lbs 5oz and is 26 inches long. Don't let his small size fool you though, look at what he can do now...

He holds his bottle, which surprised us because he doesn't get a bottle very often.

He has teeth for chewing his bath duck.

He stands and plays in the saucer at daycare.

He climbs over things and...

Jamen jumps!

I made gluten free pizza the other night and it looked so pretty I had to take a picture (oh and it tasted good too). Besides my craftiness in the kitchen I've also starting making my own baby wipes and laundry soap. Both work very well and I'm pleased with both. If you want learn how let me know; I'm glad to share my money saving tips with you.

A Cute Pooh!

Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Quast for the Winnie the Pooh costume! I think Jamen had a fun time dressing up...

A happy Pooh bear

I've fallen and I can't get up!

Hey...where did my toes go?

Much better Mom!

This one is just cute...I have no other words...oh and he did this himself
