Tessa's First Thanksgiving

Well T's first thanksgiving started a few weeks ago when we all went to hume for Tessa's Great Grandad's 80th birthday celebration where we celebrated Thanksgiving a little early. The family and food was so wonderful and we spent our free time playing pictionary man and hanging out with long lost cousins. Tessa got a LOT of love and snuggles from her family. 
 Grammy, Grandad & all the Grandkids
 The whole Fam Bam
Our little Fam Bam

So when actual Thanksgiving day rolled around we decided to head south to Visalia to spend the day with some good good friends, more like friamily (such close friends that they are like family.. you get the idea). We had a great time, though we missed our families our time was wonderful!

Tessa loved her first Thanksgiving partaking in the feast as well. She devoured turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and her FAVORITE (had 3 bowls) of butternut squash soup!
We have so much to be thankful for this year. 
Thanks Tessa for being such a blessing to your mom and dad;)

We have an 8 month old!

Tessa you are now 8 months old! That is a lot of months. You are seriously a hoot! You are starting to get a little impatient, and opinionated, VERY determined, and funny about certain things. Oh boy!

You have TWO teeth now. the second bottom one cut through a few days ago.  You love to chew and try new foods. Certainly not picky!

You are such a little dare devil. You will do anything to climb anything... even topple over several times if it doesnt work out in your favor.  Most of the times you dont even bat an eye when you come tumbling down.

You come sprint crawling down the hall when you hear me turn on the bath water each night. You stand up ready for me to strip you down and throw you in;)

You say DADADA all the time. Im pretty sure you know exactly who that is, and what that means, JUST havent proved yourself quite yet!

You are just about standing by yourself for a few seconds at a time. You are so proud of yourself when you do this.

You sleep 12 hours a night. (when we arent out of town in a different sleeping situation)

You snort and sniff like a little animal...and you tend to bounce up and down when you do it. Its your little happy/hyper jig.

We took you to the Dr. the other day and you Weighed 16.2 pounds with all your clothes on. My you are still peanutty! 0-5% in weight BUT 28 inches tall, 75% in height.

You love stuffed animals and I often catch your snuggling and holding and looking at your animals in your crib from the monitor. Oh so cute.

You had your second visit to hume this past month! we all went for a big birthday bash for your Great Grandad! It was a blast.

keep growing and loving Tessa;);)

Wow have you GROWN!

T's First Snow!

We went up to a camp called Woodleaf this past weekend. Joey is a volunteer at his school for the program and Tess and I got to tag along. Rumor had is that it was going to snow.... but we were denying the possibility... well rumor had it right and Tess got to experience snow for the first time.
She didn't know what to think. I dragged her outside just long enough to take a few pictures.

Winter is upon us!!
p.s. Joey is dressed strangely due to neon dance party night.
