Let's go to the Beach!

At the end of July we were lucky enough to get to steal away for a few days with Jason's family and headed to the beach.  What a great time!  We had a lot of fun with the kids and just beng with family. 

We spent our few days there soaking up the sand, sun, and water.  It was great.  Jojo wasn't to sure of the sand at first but quickly got acclimated.  It was so nice for him to be able to play with his cousins. On my bucket list for next year if we go is parasailing.  It looks like so much fun!

While we were there we met up with Moriah for some family pics on the beach.  They turned out amazing.  I am grateful for being able to have the opportuinty to have them taken.  Here is my favorite shot of them all.  There is something about this picture that makes my heart happy.  I cried when I saw this for the first time!

After the beach we spent the rest of our vacation at home in Finzel.  We ended the week with a trip to Idlewild park with Amy, Clint, and the kids and our friend Todd and his son.  A good time was had by all.  We couldn't have asked for a better day.

18 months

Yes, you read that correctly.  My baby is 18 months.  It's so hard to believe.  I am more in love with Jojo every single day. 

We had his 18 month check last week where he weighed in at 25.8 lbs and 33.5".  Jojo is the the 50% for weight and 84% height.  The head is still large and in charge coming in at 97%.  I still say its because it is housing your large brain.  I hate to brag but you amaze my every day with your vocabulary and the things your remember. 

I made Jojo a half birthday cake which he really enjoyed. Much more than his smash cake for his first birthday!

As I said your vocabulary is quiet something.  Things I didn't even know you knew you show everyday.  On a recent trip to the park you were running and stopped pointed to the sky and said "moon".  Just like you knew it forever.  You will repeat everything good and bad.  We are working on the bad.  LOL!  My favorite things your are saying reently are "hold you" when you want ot be held and "love you".  Be still my heart.  Sweet as pie!

Jojo is still an eating machine.  His favorite things are blueberries, bananas, green beans, peas, and tomatoes.  "Eat" is one of his favorite things.  Jojo has master the fork for most part.  He won't eat unless he has one in his hand. 

We have had a lot of fun this summer and his all time favorite past time would be anything involving water.  He is also loving cows.  When we are driving he asks where the cows are?  If you ask him what a cow eats he will say "hay" or grass".  The kid loves animals. 

My life is much fuller with Jojo in it.  I am proud to be his mommy.
