Jenson update: 18 months

Jenson update: 18 months

Jenson is closer to 19 months now that I’m finally posting this, but I’ll stick with what was going on when he turned 18 months.  We were a little busy packing up our house…I didn’t even take as many pictures.  I also failed to schedule […]

Jenson update: 17 months

Jenson update: 17 months

We had lots going on this month…more on that later…but I didn’t get to do the standard weekly posts.  I think it’s time to back off from the long weekly posts with a million pictures, and just do the monthly posts, along with any separate […]

Jenson update: 16 months

Jenson update: 16 months

We finally realized that Jenson is actually shy.  We always would tell people “he pretends he’s shy at first”, and then realized that he actually is shy.  I was shy as a kid too.  He had 2 colds and an ear infection this month, but […]

Jenson update: 15 months

Jenson update: 15 months

Jenson is 15 months!  We had a great Christmas season, though the year ended with him having a really bad stomach bug.  Luckily he got to see all of our family before that got too bad.  He still didn’t “get” Christmas, but he had fun […]

Jenson update: 14 months

Jenson update: 14 months

Jenson is 14 months!  We went to Vegas again to visit Max and Co., enjoyed a baby shower to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Jenson’s twin cousins (boys), and took a long weekend to visit my family for Thanksgiving.   The best news of the […]

Jenson update: 13 months

Jenson update: 13 months

Jenson is coming up on 14 months old soon, so it’s time to recap the craziness that was month 13.  It was so crazy that I never got around to taking a 13 month photo.  That’s okay.  I kept thinking that I’d do it, and […]

Jenson update: 1 year old!

Jenson update: 1 year old!

Jenson’s first year went by so fast.  So fast that I couldn’t keep up with the posts and he’s already 13 months!  He became incredibly verbal in his 12th month, but he’s usually quiet around other people.  He imitates sounds and syllables very accurately.  He’s […]

Jenson update: 10 months old

This was a big month for Jenson.  He finally got his first two teeth, became mobile through by scooting around on his belly, crawling backwards, and constantly rolling back and forth, and says “dada” all of the time (and seems to know what it means).  […]

Jenson update: Nine Months Old

This month it felt like Jenson really isn’t as much of a baby anymore.  I know he’s not a toddler yet, but he’s just so much more independent and I know being mobile and talking is just around the corner.  It’s so exciting, but sad […]

Jenson update: Eight Months Old

Jenson changed so much between 7 and 8 months.  He’s so independent now and plays happily by himself now that he sits so steadily.  He babbles constantly and has smiles for everyone.  The best part of my day is getting home to see him.  He […]
