Half Birthday

I can't believe it's been half a year since we had Joey. It's so amazing how fast this first year seems to go by. I guess that's a good thing as Eric's not here, means he'll be home sooner. We had her 6 month check up today. Everything is great. We didn't get shots because there hasn't been enough time between them, we'll have to go later this week to get those. Jo weighed in @ 17 pounds 4 oz and was 27 inches long. 75th percentile for both. Just to compare @ Rye's 6 month check up she was 15 pound 15 oz and was 24 inches long. What's weird is that I always thought of Rye as such a chubby baby but I don't feel that way with Joey. Anyway, here are her 5 & 6 month pics for comparison...
5 months

6 months
I don't know, can you see any difference? She seems so much bigger in person. Here's one more pic, taking after Mommy...texting up a storm. hehe.

So, Rye and I have kinda started calling Jo by a new nickname, Fee. It's not all the time but it is becoming more frequent. So if you here me call her that, you'll know who I'm talking about. She'll be 6 months tomorrow! I can't believe it. We have her doctor's appointment in the morning so I'll post about it and her 5 & 6 months pics when we get home. Rye lost another tooth. She loves pulling those bad boys out. She's doing really well in school. She'll be out in a month, then 2 months after that she'll be starting the 2nd grade. I cannot believe I have an almost 2nd grader, it's very weird for me. I'll post again tomorrow.

Joey Jo back up...

It's been a bit since I posted pics of Joey. So I have a bunch but I wanted yesterdays to be just Rye. So, be ready for lots o' pictures to scroll through.
This first one shows her cute little teeth on the bottom.

Starting intently @ her thumb, waiting for it to do something...

Sticking out her tongue, her new favorite skill

Hanging out with Rye

Rye had to get into the tongue fun too, that sounds grosser than it's meant to be...

Chewing on her bunny chew toy

Just looking adorable
Getting tired of me taking pictures, hehe
Playing with Mommy, doesn't she look beautiful?
Yelling at Mommy, she's becoming quite the screecher
Mommy fiddled with a picture, it was fun
Can u see your reflection in my forehead, ahahahaha
Look at the size of those cheeks, I though Emily would get a kick out of this
A shot in the jumperoo, I love these kinds of pictures.
I bite my thumb at you sir...


Dia de Ryels...

So I know I post alot of pics of hte little one so I thought this post would be all Rye. She is such a sweet pretty girl and she has the biggest heart. Her feelings get hurt so easily and I need to remember how much she's like me in this area. She tries so hard at all she does. She's doing so much better in school. She just got a 105% on a spelling test at school. We're so proud of her. She's an amazing big sister and always wants to make Jo smile, and she does, constantly. She loves the camera on her and loves to pose. Her drawing is really coming along. I will post some of them when I get time to scan them all into the computer. They're really great. She has such a tender heart and I am so proud to be her Mommy. Here are some pics of her posing...
Her hair is getting long. I'm so glad. Don't mind the matted dirty look of her hair in the last one, she'd been outside sweating and playing all day. She had a shower that night. Hehe.

Tummy time & more...

Some tummy time pics (she's not crying in that last one, she's talking), one of her in the jumperoo with her cute lil' shoes on and one of her lady-like feeding pose. Had to snap a pic of her crossing her legs, she always does that when she's eating. It's so sweet.

Undiscovered Talent

Jo has an amazing talent for blowing snot bubbles. Her nose is always running nowadays, so these babies are a constant entertainment.
The last one is my favorite.

The girls

A better look at her two bottom teeth. They're both thru now. I'm not sure if she's done teething yet. We're still dealing with a runny nose.

Her wooby. She loves this blanket.

You decide...

Does she look like popeye or an old man? Hehe. This is her new favorite face to make.

Just random photos since we've been home. Do I put too many pics on here? Hehe! I do love my camera. I'll note where needed.
