Home Grown- 10 mos old Already!

We grew this mini-watermelon plant. And this watermelon is about 6 inches in diameter and about 2 pounds. Jasmin is about 28 inches and over 21 pounds in a short ten months!

First time...

Working my appointed evening shift last night. It was a very busy evening to start. Tuesdays and Thursdays are the busiest. So far- I like working in the PM b/c the office has a nicer feel with smiling kids and families in and out of there.

The job turned out to be a little more involved than just being "receptionist", but then again, I've never been a receptionist before. I pretty much do everything put administrative stuff to keep the company going smoothly. Still learning, but I think I'm lucky to have this job.


No Boundaries

Jasmin is climbing over bodies, puller herself up on everything and using any "body" as leverage to pull herself to standing. She's even moving her feet around now and doing one handed maneuvers. Hopefully she won't get too confident and fall.

She also understands now that she can follow us anywhere. As long as she can hear where I am- she'll crawl to find me.

Happy Apple Farm

We decided to go apple picking and get a pumpkin. This place is just a short 20 mins away from where we live. It was a nice place- very family oriented. We bought 2 lbs of dwarf apples and some honey mustard dressing at the "country store". It was a cool place. I wanted to do something special for Jasmin's first Fall season.

She's got personality

Today, the three of us went to Texas T-Bone Steakhouse because the teachers received $10 off coupons. The dinner (Asian inspired beef rolls for appetizer, and a chicken/steak duo with sweet potato and pilaf accompaniments) was delicious. Jasmin enjoyed tasting the "grown up" sweet potato.

Jasmin seemed to be in her element. She was sitting diagonally (not "square") twisting around in her highchair and trying to win people's stares. Apparently, her parents were yesterday's news. She had a sizable audience and seemed to know how to get attention almost effortlessly. It was a glimpse at her pure personality. It was cool to watch her work it. I was tickled at her social prowess as I still have some skills to work on. LOL

It was a nice unexpected outing.

Things are turning around

Mama (that's me) got a job! I'll be able to stay home during the day while Todd works, then work evenings as a receptionist. I feel like I'm getting the best of both worlds. Wahoooooooo!!!!!!!

I can't wait to start...
