Update on our Summer!

Jyllian rarely wants to wear a hat so when she does we have to take cute pictures. These ones turned out super cute. What can I say....she is just the cutest thing ever :) I guess I am a little biased. In some of the them you can really tell she is saying "cheese!"
The car is one of her birthday presents from us. She just loves to "drive" her car. She always wants to take her car "wif me"
We also had her 2 year check-up today with her pediatrician. She has finally made some weight gains as she was always in the low percentile for weight. She weighs 23lbs, and is 33 inches tall. She is just under the 25th percentile for both heigh and weight. Yay! It just goes to show when your healthy how much you can grow. She is just such a happy little girl and is learning so much. I counted and she already knows over 160 words. She is able to put sentencs together and is really starting to ask questions like "Wheres Dadda at?" Her big one now is "Where is grandpa at" since my grandpa, Jyllian's great-grandpa just left. She got soo attached to him. She is able to name the pictures in books, name the pictures that are on her wall, she can count up to 5, and say some of the letters of the alphabet. We are starting to get her potty trained. I have no clue what I am doing, but we are getting there. She loves being able to wear big girl panties..so thats been our incentive. So all in all she is doing great. I am really enjoying my summer with her and I know it will be very difficult to go back to work in the fall! We are all doing great though. Justin stays busy with work. He has lots of overtime as they got grant money for DUI's, Speeding and Forest Service. So most nights on his working days he stays and works late. The money is great and I guess since Jyllian and I are sleeping we are not missing much time with him. All in all the summer is going awesome! Look for more pictures to be coming as we are getting ready to go on our family vacation next week. Hope this finds you doing wonderfully! Check back soon.
