Curious Jake

Curious Jake

Now that Jake is mobile, his curiosity has reached an all time high. He wants to investigate everything, and he knows he can get anywhere he wants to in a matter of seconds. Last Friday he started crawling. We knew it was coming because he had been rocking back and forth on his hands and knees for about a week. We discovered pretty quickly the beauty of the baby gate! Here is a picture of him in his chair, staring at something.... not quite sure what is was that captured his attention!

This weekend we took Lilly and Jake to Houston Oaks to have lunch and then walk around since it was such a pretty day. We even had time to squeeze in a quick game of chess before heading home!

Just Hanging Out

On one of my older posts I commented about how Lilly loves to put toes in her mouth.... and she doesn't stop with her own. I caught her in the act this weekend as she tried to sneak a bite of Jake's!

Just minding my own business, looking cute......

OK....they're not paying attention.... time to make my move!

"Come on, Jake! Just let me take a teeny, tiny bite!"
(Love this one of her sticking her tongue out at him!)
Noni and Poppy came to visit this weekend! It's always so hard to say goodbye.
We had such a fun time, and we can't wait to see them again!

Big Boy Jake

My mom bought these cute designer diapers when Jake and Lilly were newborns. They are a size 3, and have adorable prints and patterns. When she gave them to me, I remember thinking they will never be that big! Well, Jake is wearing size 3 now, so I guess he really has grown! Noni (my mom) is coming this weekend to visit so we're pulling out the designer diapers!!! Couldn't resist this one of Jake!

Here are some more of my little man in action!
He definitely gets his beautiful blue eyes from his Daddy!

Lilly In Action

While Jake is sleeping, Lilly finds many ways to entertain herself these days. This is one of her favorite activities. She can actually get her toes all the way to her mouth. The funniest thing was when she grabbed Jake's feet the other day and stuck his toes in her mouth. We will all be wearing socks around Lilly.... just in case!

As promised, here are some pictures of Jake and Lilly playing with Ryan, the Zebra. This is a great toy to share!

Under Construction

A New Year Brings a New Room!

Our dining room has been under construction for a few months now. When Jake and Lilly were born, we decided to convert it into a playroom. We are so happy to announce that it is finally finished! We love having this room right off the kitchen and laundry room. Jake and Lilly seem to love the open space to roll around and play. They will be crawling any day now, we think. Life could get really interesting, then!!! Anyways, here are a few snapshots of our finished room! Enjoy!

This is Daddy's Jelly Belly machine....

Chairs for reading....

Lots and lots of books...

All kinds of animals and toys....

One of our favorite Christmas presents from our cousins....

A table and chairs (for when we get a little bigger)...

This room is usually covered with toys! I had to use nap time for my photo shoot, so I'll include more pictures of Jake and Lilly actually playing in their playroom when they are awake!
