I've Found a Cure for Clutter

and her name is Izzy!

Yes, when I made it home from a trip to Atlanta weekend before last, our girl was on the move. Tre' and mom were here with her while I was gone, and Tre' kept telling me she was getting around. Sure enough when I got home, she was doing it!

I swear, every day, she's a little faster...

You can see her scanning the room and the look in her eyes says, "hmmmm... what can I get into next?" Then her face will light up and she's off! Her favorite things to go after are our plants, electrical cords, and any little speck of anything on the floor!!! She also loves to empty baskets, so my magazines are looking pretty beat up!! But boy, is it fun!!! It definitely is keeping us on our toes!

Don't you love a baby in overalls?

And... all that work can wear a gal out!
It was naptime this morning, and I was fixing a bottle for Iz. I walked over to pick her up from her jumper and this is what I saw (mind you, she is still bouncing herself here, not full-fledged through the roof jumping like usual, but she is still bouncing when this picture is taken!).

I know I should have picked her right up, but it just cracked me up that she was bouncing herself to sleep, so I snapped a couple more pics.

She's rarely still, so I guess it's appropriate that she can even manage to move while she's sleeping!!

Speaking of sleeping, I'm headed that way!

Those are such sweet pictures. I love her sweet little grin in the overalls. Have a good week!

What a cutie! And yes, babies in overalls are adorable!

JinGA said...

Your sweet girl is just too precious. And she looks so much like her beautiful big sister! Enjoy every minute of her!

Thanks for making me smile today. Precious, those pictures are just precious. Especially those in the jumper. Not many babies can jump and sleep at the same time; but leave it to our girl Izzy. Always in motion!!
And yes, babies in overalls are the cutest. All my "grands" have overalls and they just look so adorable in them.
Glad Izzy is helping you get rid of the clutter. Looks like she's mastered the "crawling thing" and is well on her way to bigger and better things.
Have a great day!!

Soo sweet. My 9 1/2 month old is still not crawling. Being my third...I definitely think he's the laziest of the 3 (or maybe he's just smart).

Absolutely adorable!!!

She is too cute!!! Love those overalls!!!

Jenny, Ilove how you capture all the fun moments of babyhood, her jumping in the mess, and now her falling asleep in her jumper. Just priceless. I am so glad you are living in the moment and enjoying it all....

Now...that is just precious how she fell asleep in her jumparoo.(I think it spelled this way) Jonathan just started crawling the same week he turned 9mo. I guess these boys are more lazier that the girls.

Love and Hugs..

Boy, I love those pictures of her in the jumper. That face...ahhh. Don't you wish you could sleep like that, any time, anywhere? Don't you wish she'd always sleep like that? (: She's growing so beautifully. I know you're proud of her.

I didn't comment on the earlier post about Catie's celebration, but it sounds like it was everything it should have been. What a special way to remember your girl. Thanks for sharing!
