First Steps!

Juliet finally took some steps! She's been taking one or two steps every once in awhile, but yesterday, without any prompting, she took like 6! She's always very proud of herself when she finally sits down and I'm sure she enjoys the clapping and cheering that we do for her. Hopefully we'll get a video of it soon!

Today we went to the baby doctor and everything is great! It took a little longer than I would have liked to find the heartbeat but we did get to hear it and we loved that :) We have our next appointment in 6 weeks to find out what the gender is! Tim thinks this pregnancy is going way faster than the last one so that's good news :)

Boy names

Ok this is a little silly because we don't even know if we are having a boy, but Tim is really hoping for one so we need name ideas! I am having the hardest time coming up with boy names, especially ones that we both like! So if you have any ideas, normal names, creative names, old names, whatever they are they are very much appreciated. Except Lisa, you need to censor Daren's names before he gives me any ideas :) A big thanks to Whitney who has already taken this challenge very seriously!

Juliet Maxine

I love Juliet Maxine! She is seriously the cutest little girl in the whole world! I'm so fortunate to be able to stay home with her everyday and experience the changes in her personality as she gets older. She is almost 1 year old and sometimes she seems so grown up while other times she is still my little baby.
Juliet is starting to become very mischievous and is learning to push the boundaries. Sometimes it's hard not to laugh when she does these things but I can't! She loves to crawl into tiny places where it's hard to get her out. She's so smiley and happy and is starting to say a few words. Mark taught her how to say thanks and she says it all the time now! She also says wassat, ya, dad-dy, and mmmmmmmm. Her favorite toys are her dump truck, Fergus, books, and her sippy cup. I love sitting and watching her play because I feel like she's getting imaginative already. We love Juliet and can't wait to celebrate her birthday next week!

Hey! You're in my class!

As my sister informed me earlier this week it has been 2 months since my last post. So finally I am taking everyone's hints and writing one!

Today is significant because it's the Wednesday after the Super Bowl! 3 years ago (approximately) on this day Tim and I met. I was walking down my street on my way to class when I saw this guy from my Family Interactions class waiting for someone at the crosswalk. I didn't want to do that whole awkward look where you know you know someone but you're not sure if they know who you are so you kind of smile but don't say anything. So instead I decided to just say, "Hey! You're in my class." Luckily I was feeling friendly that day!

We ended up walking to our classes together, which happened to be in the same building and from there it's history! Now the Super Bowl has some sort of significance in my life :)

I love you Tim!
