Lainey turned 10 months on the 1st of April, and surprised us by walking about two weeks before that. Now she is 'motating' all over the place and keeping me very busy trying to entertain (and contain) her newfound mobility. Her personality is becoming more and more apparent each day. She is a show off, for sure! She loves to show anyone watching her new tricks, sounds, toys, whatever. Her hair is long enough in the back to do little pigtails... so cute!She is starting to make the same sounds for the same things, e.g. 'mo' for more, 'ba ba' for her bottle or anything she wants to drink, she is even saying 'ze-zuz' when we walk by a picture of Jesus or she sees her Jesus book, she says 'ba' for book, and mama and dada of course... She has been into 'giving loves' lately, which just melts our hearts! She will come over to me (walk or crawl) and put her head against me and say "awwwww" because we say that when we give her 'loves'. She also 'gives loves' to her monkey, big bunny, baby, and pink kitty. She will give kisses to her picture of Jesus (so cute!) pictures of mom or dad, or grandma and grandpa. The other night during family prayer, she even gave Josh kisses on the face. It was the cutest thing I had ever seen! (I know my eyes weren't supposed to be open, but I'm glad they were!) She has grown so much in the last month, I can't believe it!
My inlaws got a black lab puppy about a month ago and are trying to house-train it. It has been quite the ordeal, but he's a cute dog and as long as I keep Lainey off the floor when he's around, then everything is fine! They want to have him trained as a seeing eye dog for my sister-in-law's little boy who is going blind. It will be hard to give him up!
Here are some miscellanious pictures that I thought were cute!
