We dog-sat for Bella, my brother’s Jack Russell Terrier, starting last Wednesday through today. She is such a good little dog, although the fireworks scared her. Jessica likes Bella, although sometimes I think she’s not quite sure what to do with Bella.
James’ parents came into town for the weekend. We had a lot of fun.
They arrived Friday night, too late to get to play with Jessica as she was already asleep. Saturday, they got lots of Jessica time. After her afternoon nap, we went and toured some model homes in Falconhead West, a neighborhood in the Bee Cave/Lakeway area. We’re starting to think about moving as we will need more space once we get pregnant with baby #2. We’ll probably move the early part of next year. If we want to build, we will have to decide soon, but for the size of house we want, building may be out of our price range. The houses were really nice though. Jessica did great. I thought she might get fussy, but she only got fussy for a few minutes and that was when James’ Dad, who was holding her, got out of viewing range of James and I. Then we had a nice dinner at Mesa Rosa, where Jessica enjoyed her butternut squash and bananas that I brought for her.
Sunday was more time spent just relaxing at our house. The quality of this next picture isn’t the greatest (I must have moved), but I love the expression on Jessica’s face.
Jessica is starting to pull up on things, especially her crawl and cruise jungle.
I love Jessica’s expression in this next photo. She has some great expressions.
James took some great photos of me and Jessica. Don’t you love the little sailor outfit?
Sunday early evening, we went Aric & Kristy’s house, for their 4th of July party. Kristy wants to make it an annual occurrence. It was a lot of fun. Jessica did really well and we actually stayed until almost 9 o’clock. James’ parents actually left shortly before 8 to hit the road back to Midland. They had commitments early afternoon Monday and didn’t want to get up super early, so they decided to leave late and sleep in.
Saturday, Sprouts had blueberries on sale for $0.97/pint so I picked up two pints and cooked one pint into a nice puree. I took some of it along with some butternut squash to the party for Jessica to try for the first time and she loved them. It kinda looks like she got into Mommy’s lipstick, doesn’t it?
