Make photo slide shows at
Look who's finally showing signs of walking!!!! :) She still isn't walking around the house but she will walk between two people or furniture and someone. The first part of the video is her walking with just me, second is a video of her doing her fish face. ( I know I ask her to show me over and over but its cute!)
And the last two are her walking with Jeremy and I. She is getting better but she keeps her legs stiff so once she realizes she needs to bend her knees more she will probably be running! Enjoy!

~First Santa experience~

I took Kimberly over to Grandma Coon's work for there kid Christmas party. I was so excited to see how Kimberly would be with Santa. When you ask her want Santa does she says "ho, ho, ho" But after waiting in line and saying 'ho, ho, ho' we finally made it up to Santa well........... Here was our results.

She did NOT like him!!!! I'm sure it was because I just went up and set her on a strangers lap and then walked away! (can't really blame her!) But she did enjoy her present from Santa.
(a book that talks to her!, She loves to play with it in the car while driving around)

Kimberly helping us set up the tree. She ended up going to bed before we decorated it and then we had a few set backs (tree almost falling over, stand breaking, not being able to find another stand for a couple days) but we did finally get it up and decorated. (Pictures to come with Christmas post)

She followed Jeremy back and forth from the kitchen getting water for the tree! She likes to help!

The babe's with there favorite things (Kay- binkie, Kimberly-thumb!)
They have so much fun together!

A couple days ago we made Christmas candy. Kimberly was asleep while we did it so this is her the next morning. We saved her a spoon with home made fudge on it!!! mmmmm.....

~Ponytail and climbing~

I put Kimberly's hair into a her first pony tail the other day! She wasn't feeling well and had a runny nose so I was trying to figure out a way to keep her hair out of her face. I think it turned out cute even though the back is still a little to short!

I brought Kimberly's rocking chair upstairs and she LOVES to climb in and out of it and hang out and watch Dora in it!!!!

After Kimberly learned to climb in and out of her chair she decided it would be fun to climb in her toy basket!!! She is such a funny girl these days!

* A little side note: Kimberly took three steps Saturday night and has 6 teeth!!!!

~Festival of Trees~

Kimberly and I went to the Festival of Trees with Danielle, Justin, Dominick, and Kaydence. It was really fun and I think Kimberly enjoyed seeing the trees. We also watched a few dance classes perform and tried some treats. Kimberly kept doing the "more" and "eat" symbol and pointing at everyone that had food. You would think by the way she eats that I never feed her. She eats like a horse!!!! While we were there we got to try a pretzel, scone, and sweet roll. Very good!!!

Justin, Danielle, Dom, and Kay
What a cute little family

Kimberly loves Kaydence! She loves to give kisses to everyone!

Pretty girl!

Best Friends

She liked sitting on the train!

~Monthly Memories!~ :)

Here is a video I took with my cell phone. I love when she reads the books to me! Right at the end you can hear her say Dora. I tried to get the monkey lips but she just made the sound!

I think I am going to start an end of the month post so I can still put down things that Kimberly is doing/achieving: I need help on something good to call it like the couple others use for a weekly post are 'tuesday tidbits, wednesday write ups, friday favorites'

In the life of Kimberly age 13 months 1 week:

01. Starting to get daring and is trying to take steps. She has had one step here and there but usually ends up falling into our arms or down on the floor.
02. Does the sign for 'more', 'apple', 'all done'.
03. Points at EVERYTHING! That little finger is out all the time.
04. She picks up all of her food with her thumb and index finger. (including popcicles) She never grabs handfuls of anything.
05. She can say 'hi, mummy', "mummy", "diddy", "duck", "dora", "oo bear" (Pooh bear), "ig irg" (Big bird) "danku" (thank you), "pees"(please), "puppy", "aker" (craker), "ookie" (cookie) Most of them she will say on her own but some are only after we say them. I'm sure there are more but these are the ones I can think of. My favorite is "hi, Mummy" when I get her in the morning. Or like the other day when she was with jeremy all morning and then when I came up she kept looking at me and saying "mummy" until I would look at her and then go "Hi, Mummy" with a big smile! Melt my heart!
06. She LOVES to dance
07. She eats like a horse!! She eats pretty much every thing we give her. But does have a hard time with meat so she usually doesn't want it. But does like chicken. She says chicken also but when she says it, it sounds like turkey for some reason!!!
08. She smiles at everyone and usually will say "hi" if people say it to her.
09. When she waves hi or bye its the exact same. (she waves her fingers towards her body and says "hi")
10. She loves to read her books and will bring them to us all day long for us to read them to her.
11. She loves Dora. When we are at the store she will Always find the Dora stuff, point to it and say Dora.
12. She does fish lips and monkey lips when you ask her what those animals do.
13. She gives a lot of kisses and loves. She will lean towards you with her chin up in the air and go "mmmmm" (kiss) and her loves are putting her head on you and say " awhhh".
I'm sure there is more but this is a pretty good list for now!

~Let it snow.....let it snow...~

Today it snowed ALL day long so we bundled Kimberly up and took her out for 5 mins. She wasn't sure about the snow but does like watching it and daddy shoveling. We have had two really good storms so we have a decent amount of snow on the ground.

Snow bunny!

Kimberly is standing in the snow!

We had a great Thanksgiving this year. We stayed here in Salt Lake and had dinner at Jeremy's grandmas. Aunt Natalie came in for the holiday also. It was nice to see her and I think Kimberly enjoyed visiting with her aunt.
Friday morning Janica and I went shopping for black Friday. We did most of our shopping at Walmart but did go to Target and Big 5. People are crazy at those sells but I enjoy going every year. If I don't get things I wanted I'm not to upset! It was a fun little get away for just the two of us. I slept most the day after shopping, so Kimberly had a day with her daddy. And then the next day I got sick so she had another day with her daddy, they went shopping!
Last week was my birthday and the night before Grammi and Poppy took me out to Cheesecake Factory. It was yummy food and even better dessert (As you can tell Kimberly LOVED the Peanut butter cheesecake!) Then on my birthday Jeremy surprised me by taking me to Wendover for the night. Kimberly stayed at grandma Coons house. It was the first time I had left Kimberly for a whole night. I thought I would have a hard time but it was nice to spend a night with Jeremy. While in Wendover Jeremy took me to a show called "Chinese Acrobats of Hebei" it was really good and I definately recommend it. We did a little gambling and I ended up finding $20 on a machine! We didn't come out ahead but we had a nice time. The only thing that sucked about the trip was having a fire alarm at 2 a.m. and having to go out into the snow. It was a false alarm! Thank goodness!

~Car Seat~

This last week I switched Kimberly over to her big girl car seat. I am leaving her facing rear until spring but I figured this car seat gives her more room. I took it out of the box and put her in it to get the straps right and then placed it by the door. As I was cleaning the kitchen I looked over and Kimberly had climbed into the seat and was just sitting there. I think she likes it!!!!

She has learned and LOVES to point now!!!! When I go get her in the morning, as soon as I pick her up she points out the door, or whatever she sees outside of the crib.
Can you tell she likes Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!!! ha ha I put one on her tray and she pretty much shoved it all in her mouth at once! Then points at the other cookies and then claps her hands (that is the way she does the "more" signal)

This little girl could sit and eat all day long!!!! I keep thinking that she is full and then as soon as anyone around her has food she goes right up to them and whines until they give her some more food. We call her our little goat! She eats EVERYTHING we give her!!!!
