Time to update the family and baby fans. :-) Alaina is such fun right now, and I simply can't describe how fast she is learning!

She loves to give us hugs and kisses, and to be right in the middle of things. Waving bye bye to Daddy and greeting him later are part of her favorite routines.

She's not walking yet (unless she is pushing something, then she walks all over) and hasn't tried much, but she loves to scoot around on her little cars!

Sharing with Daddy. She now says "Dada" "Mama" and book ("Booka, booka") and knows what they mean.

She also has several signs in her vocabulary, most of them food related and her most used one being "eat"! That's usually what she tells us as soon as we get her up in the morning - eat!

She's a happy little girl!

On another note, we spent a lovely Valentines Day at home. Kyle made dinner, and we couldn't have eaten better if we had gone out! Hickory smoked steak, fresh made dinner rolls, spinach salad with croutons and eggs - the man is amazing! Dessert wasn't bad either - I'll just say that brownies over snickers ice cream with wild raspberries and a drizzle of carmel is highly recommended!

I am greatly enjoying my lovely roses. I love snow, but at this time of year fresh flowers are such a treat! Thank you Sweetheart!

Alaina is getting SO big. I love the picture of her leaning on Kyle's shoulder :) I'm glad you had a good Valentine's Day dinner. Sounds like a very filling meal!

So cute! How far apart will your little ones be?

Alaina will be 19 mo. if Little One arrives on schedule.

19 mos. . . that's a nice spacing. . . J and T were only 17 mos, T and R were 15 mos, and R and C were 21 months. . . I love haven't stair-step babies, but. . . there are benefits to each baby being the baby longer.
