Happy 11 Months, Megan!

I can't believe my baby is about to be a year old next month. This first year is just flying by so quickly. I sometimes just want to pause it so I could enjoy each stage more. She is not a baby anymore which makes me a little sad, but it is also so much fun watching her grow up. I am so thankful to the Lord for Megan. I was just playing with her today thinking of our wonderful the Lord was in giving Tim and I this beautiful girl. Tears just come to my eyes when I think of it. I can't imagine life without her. We are so blessed! Enjoy the slides of her 11th month!

Happy Birthday, Tim!!!

Today is Tim's 28th birthday! I am so thankful for my wonderful husband! He is a great husband and father! Last night at Teen Bible Study, we surprised him with a Dairy Queen ice cream cake!! (Can you guess who picked out the cake?) We only had a few teens last night at Bible study, but we had a wonderful time and got to enjoy more of the cake!!


I forgot to take my camera so this was the best picture we got of our family from Tim's phone. (The lens needed to be wiped off on his phone so it would not be so blurry, but we realized it just for the last picture which was the one above...oh well!!)

Today Tim has to work during the day, but tonight we are planning on going to Olive Garden where we will get to use a gift card that my parents gave him for his birthday!

Happy Birthday, Tim. We love you very much and are so thankful for all that you do for us. Love, Kristen and Megan

Megan on the Move...

Megan is now 10 1/2 months and has really been learning so much. (even learning how to play x-box with Tim!)



She is learning some words. She has been saying mama for a long time, but in the last month, she has started saying dada. It is so cute. Tim sleeps during the day as he works nights. Well, the other day, I went into the room to do something with her really quickly and then left. Once we left, Megan stands up at the door saying dada dada. It was just so cute! She also has started saying nana which my mother loves!!! She loves her nana so much that when Nana leaves the room she sometimes cries. I have been trying to teach her eyes, nose, mouth, etc. The other day, I had bought her a baby doll at the Dollar Tree. When I put her in the van, she pointed to the baby's eyes, and said "eye". She also says hi as she holds up whatever she has in her hand pretending it is a phone. Sometimes she just holds her hand up to her ear and says hi. She also has learned to bark like a dog....it is so funny.



She knows how to sign for please as well. Today she went into the kitchen at Nana's house and found a package of Ramen Noodle soup. She start signing please! Whenever she wants some that sign comes!

She is still crawling as her form of movement as well as walking around everything that she can pull up herself on. She has taken one step a couple of times but has fallen down after that one step!

She has been sick this last month with a double ear infection, but she is over that. I am so thankful that she is getting back to her normal routine of sleep as well as her normal happy self! She is a very happy girl usually and is ALWAYS on the MOVE!
