Jaci loves to eat!

I know I just put on some pictures about Thanksgiving, but those pictures are from almost a month ago so I decided to put on some more recent ones. Jaci got her two top teeth and she now loves to eat EVERYTHING. She loved to eat before, but now she's discovered a whole new world. She also finally learned to roll over both ways and can sit up by herself, for the most part. Kelcie and I took Jaci out to eat last night, so there are some pictures of that too. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Break

Well, I'm finally updating my blog. It's amazing how much time I DON'T have to do anything. Jaci just wants to be held all the time. She finally cut her top two teeth a day apart and we have started giving her toddler cereal bite things and she loves them. She also started drinking apple juice out of a sippie cup. She LOVES apple juice and she loves eating her rice cereal mixed with fruit, especially bananas. Anyway, for Thanksgiving break we went and visited Bill's family in Mississippi and Louisiana. There are pictures here of our vacation where we had a great time. It was fun being out in the middle of nowhere with a lot of trees and open space. It was beautiful and relaxing. We got a few huge rainstorms while we were there. I just wanted to go sit on the porch in a rocking chair and watch the rain like in the movies.

Oh! I thought it was a little weird when Caryn did a tribute to her Cranberry Splash soda pop, but I'll have to say I've amended my thinking. I tried the Pomegranate 7-UP and I fell in love! It is so yummy! I'm going to have to stock up so I can have it all year long! If you haven't tried it, you need to.

Well, Halloween has very much come and gone, in fact it is almost time for Thanksgiving!!! This month has just flown by. Jaci has discovered her feet and she plays with them all the time. She hasn't gotten them in her mouth yet, but it's just a matter of time. She has also started reaching for her mommy to pick her up. It's very cute, but mommy doesn't get much done these days! Anyway, for Halloween Jaci was a beautiful butterfly and Kelcie came and helped us "trick or treat". Jaci fell asleep before we got to the first house so we didn't get a whole lot done!

Arizona Visit

Hey all! I know it takes me forever to do a post. I've been wanting to put up the pictures from Halloween, but my sister Kelcie took the pictures on her camera and keeps forgetting to bring it to me. So we'll have to make do with pictures from our trip to Arizona. Jaci got to go "swimming" with Pops in the spa! I was excited because she got to wear one of her bigger swimming suits that didn't fit her while we were there in the summer.

We also go to go to our annual family Halloween party that I haven't gotten to go to in years! We had a great time with cousins! Jaci was particularly interested with my brother Rusty! She would just stare and stare at him and then at the party she lunged for him to take her. Of course, Berkley couldn't be outdone so he had to have Rusty hold him too!
Don't worry! Halloween pictures will come soon! I might have to beat Kelcie to a pulp before she remembers to bring her camera over, but one way or the other we'll get it done soon! Thanks mom and dad for letting us come and visit! We love coming home!

Bread and Blizzards

Jaci had a couple of firsts yesterday. She has started grabbing everything and anything she can get her hands on. Especially if it's in my hands. Well, I picked up a roll that I was going to eat and she grabbed it out of my hand and stuck it in her mouth. She thought it was quite tasty! Now, the next first was a little...colder. We were just hanging out watching the BYU game when we looked outside and it was snowing...hard. Jaci got a glimpse of her first snow storm...her first of many unfortunately. Her momma (me) is an Arizona girl through and through and doesn't like living in the snow. At least we get to escape the cold weather for a few days and go visit everyone in AZ!!! We also took a trip this week with Kelcie and Grandma Penton up to Gardner Historic Villiage. Unfortunately I was a little spacey and forgot my camera.

Noni, Pops and RyRy came to visit!

Well, we're all alone again. Noni, Pops, and RyRy came to visit us this past week. They came up to go to General Conference and then stayed a few extra days. Kelcie took us to lunch at "Legends Grille" which is where all the BYU football players eat. Dad (Pops) was really excited because he found a football that he signed while he was a football player at BYU! It was really fun to get to spend some time with them and we miss them already! Jaci and I can't wait to go down to Arizona for the family Halloween party on October 29th.
In other news, Jaci is getting a really strong jaw and loves to bite everything. She is also getting very good at grabbing anything and everything. She has become a bit of a Mama's girl, but I'm not complaining. At least not most of the time.

Fun with Nana!

Well, we've been back in Utah for almost a month now and are finally getting the place in order. Nana came up this week and has helped me put all my pictures up and we went up to watch my cousin Sarah in a ballet performance at the University of Utah! Jaci has decided that she loves to go on walks in her stroller and sometimes that is the only time she takes a nap during the day. Nana's time here is going way too fast and we are going to miss her when she leaves. She loves spending time with her little lady bug!!!

Saturday, September 22, 2007


Well, it's been a while, but we didn't have internet until today in our new place. We are getting settled in here in Provo, UT. Jaci has decided she loves being outside, so we take her on walks in either the front pack or the stroller. We love having Kelcie up here too, we walk to her apartment and she runs to ours. I will post pictures of the new place once Nana comes and we can get all the decorations put up.

Jaci has already grown so much since we got up here. She is still a doll, but she bites hard! She bites my finger and she has almost made me bleed several times. She has started grabbing for things, so toys are a little more fun now. Also, I bought a Baby Einstein movie "Baby's First Moves" and she loves the puppets on there and will sit an watch it for ever. She laughs when the Kangaroo plays Peek-a-boo! She still doesn't want to be put down for naps, she wakes right up and opens her eyes as wide as they can go.

We miss everyone down in Arizona, especially the little boys, who are also growing up so fast! Come visit us!!!

Another tooth!

I know I just wrote earlier today, but Jaci just started sucking on my finger and her other bottom tooth popped in. She now has both of her front bottom teeth. She's way too young for this! I know I'm not ready for it!

Teeth and Baby Fat!

I am horrible I know! I don't keep up very well, as Caryn keeps reminding me. Seriously Caryn, you should just post for me! Well, anyway, Jaci is getting so big! She has been drooling and drooling like crazy for about a month and her first tooth finally came through last Friday! I can't believe she already has a tooth! I'll just blame it on her dad since he got his first tooth when he was still tiny too. Thanks alot! Also, we were over at Rusty and Caryn's the other day because Braden asked me to help him make a Macadamia Nut Pie! He's so silly, anyway, Jaci sat and played in their Jumperoo for a long time and had a blast. Berkley finds her very interesting. Every time she makes a noise or cries he looks at her like "what the heck are you doing?" We also weighed Jaci the other day and she is now over 13 lbs! What a chunk!

Family Photo Shoot

We had a great time at our family reunion photo shoot! Here are just a few of the pictures we took!

Family Reunion

We had a great time up in Deer Valley, UT! We had a Solomon family reunion and rented a huge 9 bedroom house in the mountains of Deer Valley. It was so much fun getting to see everyone! We also blessed Jaci up there so we could have the whole family there! More pictures of that to come soon!

Sunday, July 15, 2007


Jaci has started smiling! Once you can get her to look at you and make eye contact she'll just grin away! She is getting so big! We just weighed her last week and she was 10 and a half pounds as opposed to her 6 lbs 11 oz when she was born! This is no surprise since she eats CONSTANTLY!

Jaci's 1st Swim

Since it's around 110 degrees here in Arizona, Jaci and I decided to go swimming. It was her first time and she didn't think it was too bad! We got to put her in one of her cute little tiny swimming suits! This one was actually my little sister Kelcie's (who is now 17 and in college) when she was a baby!

1st Trip to Utah

We took our first trip to Utah last week to take Kelcie up to BYU. We also went to Brianne (Gilbert) Hill's wedding luncheon which was beautiful. Jaci got to meet a couple of her Great Aunts and 2nd cousins who adored holding her. We had a great time, but she was glad to get home and finally be out of her car seat! On the way home we stopped in Beaver, UT and these two silly kids didn't want to wake up!

Lake Powell

We just got back from a great week at Lake Powell. Jaci had a great first time, although she wasn't too fond of the car rides there and back. We can't believe that she is 4 weeks old already and she is getting so big! At her 2 week doctor's appointment she had already gained a pound and she's gotten much bigger since then. She is finally starting to outgrow her preemie clothes and fit into some of her newborn ones. We can't imagine life without her!

Jaci and Berkers

Jaci and 8 month old cousin Berkley "playing" together at Lake Powell. Berkley just wants to touch her hands and feet and Jaci's not quite sure she likes it. Berkley isn't too happy when Jaci is being held by his Noni or his mom. He also doesn't know what to think when she is in the swing they share at Noni and Pop's house.

12 days old already

Hard to believe she is almost 2 weeks old. Jaci is doing great. Jill and Bill and Jaci are still staying with Noni and Pops.
