The finished product
Jardin was finally able to finish Kylee and Matt's project and here is the final result. Yay for talented husbands and free hair cut and colors!
Jardin's new project
Jardin is making an entertainment center for my friend Kylee in exchange for hair cuts and colors. This is the first time he has ever done this and we are all amazed by his talent. Now he just needs to make me a dresser!
This is our attempt capture all of Addie's teeth on camera. But she doesn't let us get a good shot of her top two teeth, just the bottoms.
Addie loves eating biter biscuits. Of course that means stripping her down to her diaper and giving her a bath right after.
For Valentine's, Grandma Christenson gave Addie a little bag of treats including candy and stickers. She loved them and she loves her Grandma!
Jardin and I got married April 19th 2008 and had our first baby April 3rd 2009. Our life has been filled with busy schedules, late nights, and lots and lots of diapers but we have loved it! Right now Jardin is a full time student and UVU and is planning on going into the medical field. When he isn't going to classes or studying he is volunteering at the Utah Valley Hospital or fishing. I am teaching piano right now and have 24 students. I recently downsized my studio from 32 students and have loved the extra time with my family. Addie is doing great! She is now 10 months and loves to talk and move and does not like being cuddled! She loves dogs and wants to watch Baby Einstein's 'Neighborhood Animals' all day long. She can say 'dog', 'uh-oh', 'dad', 'hi', 'bye-bye', as well as barks and copies tones. She has 4 teeth and has a couple more coming. She has been our joy and we feel so blessed she is in our family and is doing so well!
