Papas and Blue boys

Yesterday Delaney and I headed up to my dad's to visit with him. We went after breakfast so we got to stay for awhile and we all went to lunch together and then to run a couple of errands. We got to hang out at the house for awhile too and Delaney loves their dog Blue. He is so big and she is not the least big scared of him and actually even likes to hear him bark! She would just stare while he was barking and then when he stopped she would get so excited and start panting at him so he would bark again. We also got to go by and visit Susan's parents while we were there and visit with them for awhile. Delaney had a great day and she sure loves her Papa!

Also Delaney is officially walking as of last week! She is doing great and can take a lot of steps now without falling. I got a video yesterday so I'll try and post it. Any of my blogging friends that post videos is there some secret to get them to download on here? I have a pretty fast computer and when I download videos even if they are not long it says they are downloading for hours... is that normal? How long does it normally take you to download?

When Daddy get me ready for bed...

This is what I end up wearing! I came in the room the other night after David had gotten Delaney dressed for bed and this is what I saw... her nightgown on backwards! This is not the first time he has done this and it cracks me up that he didn't even notice until I pointed it out!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today is David's birthday! Some years ago today the love of my life and my best friend was born. He has been such a great support system and such a Godly leader in our family. He is the best dad to Delaney and she just adores him! I thank the Lord everyday for bringing us together and for putting him in my life! I love you so much David! (I'm going to try and figure out how to get some scanned pics of him from when he was little so update to come!) Happy Birthday!

10 month post

Delaney you are 10 months old today! We went to the doctor this morning to get a flu shot and you weighed 15lb 11.5oz.. you are still a tiny thing but make up for your size with your personality! You are growing and learning new things everyday and you make daddy and I smile everyday. Here are some things you are doing at 10 months...

- You are still pulling up on everything you see and can get around a piece of furniture before we know it.. you have taken a step or so and really want to walk but your not quite there yet

- You now know how to clap and do it all the time. You still don't make a lot of noise when you do it but it is cute to watch you try!

- You wave to people but most of the time you do it after we walk away and just stare and smile at them while you are actually in front of them

- You go to the nursery at church (and have since you were about 4m) you are usually great with everyone in there

- You will still go to anyone and are starting to like some people more than others and recognize other people besides mommy and daddy

- You eat your food pretty well most of the time but if anyone is eating food around you then they better share with you! You will come up to me while I'm eating and scream at me for some food. Were going to have to work on your table manners!

- SO far you have liked everything I have given you to eat and you have tried some pretty weird things!

- You have been on the big girl (baby) swings at the park and you of course love those too and would swing on them all day if I would let you.

- You are not what I would call a clam baby but are an awesome little girl with a big personality and love people

We love you so much monkey and LOVE being your parents everyday!

Party TIme!

We went to a 100th birthday celebration for Aunt Ella (Susan's Aunt) this summer and I just got some great pictures from the event. It was at a community center up in Hayden and there were tons of people there. Mrs. Ella is still sharp even at 100 and she literally just stopped cutting her own grass a few years ago! Here are a few pictures from the birthday party...
