Jessaleigh made the jump to a pedal bike today. Chanler moved to a 20″ bike a few days ago and today Jessaleigh decided to give the 16″ a go. She was awesome! Just like her brother she was riding without help within 5-10 minutes. Still need to work on stopping without falling down and starting without help, but she is doing awesome for being one day in! I have to say the balance bike has been one of the best purchases we have ever made!
It had to happen eventually!
Honestly it was just a trim… but she is getting so big!
That’s right our Little Miss is one today! Where has the time gone?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY
At One Jessaleigh’s favorite things are:
Walking and trying to run
Wrestling, chasing, and generally pestering her brother
Eating and drinking from a straw
Peek A Boo
Currently Jessaleigh has mastered:
- Two teeth
- Climbing stairs and chairs
- Thanksgiving dinner
- Walking with a walking toy
- Expressing displeasure and annoyance
Standing and balancing without support!
Having enough hair to sport a bow (thanks in part to the man at home depot who – while she was wearing a purple dress – asked if she was a boy!!!)
Waving bye bye
At 8 months Jessaleigh is:
Pulling up to a stand (with some cruising)
“Talking” to you
Eating (anything and everything, especially if it has meat in it)
Banging things in her hands together (she particularly like to bang the heads of little people together)
Crawling head first off of high places (the bed, the couch, etc.)
Being a boy magnet!
You may notice that the pictures are um, shall we say it is no longer easy to get Jessaleigh to sit still to take a picture. As soon as you put her down she is off to find adventure or at least grab the camera!
Taken on her first camping trip!
