We are excited to share with our family and friends about the adventures of our life and keep us closer to home! We have moved from Egypt across the world to Montana. We have added another addition to our wonderful family and are enjoying our little family of four. We are glad that you stopped by and hope you enjoy your stay!!
We have made it through the first few months. They have been interesting to say the least, but definitely interesting!!
Jovee got all her measurements at the doctor's office yesterday:
Height: 26 Inches
Weight: 18 lbs
She is a big girl and seems quite healthy! Nothing more we could ask for.....ok maybe one night of sleep but that will come someday :-)
Here are some pictures of Jovee at 4 months old:
Jovee our little cheerleader!
Jovee decided that she wanted to get up at 5am on her 4 month birthday, she just wanted to relax on the couch!
Later that day we were practicing our squats...
The many faces of Jovee.....
She loves to eat her burp cloth....it is sooooo tasty.....
The other day Jovee was having a rough day. Norris and I decided to have a "Star Wars" marathon to help us get through Jovee's rough day. Little did we know that all it took was a little "Star Wars" in her life to make her better!!!!
She is truly a Courliss!!!! :-)
She also has the wookie call down.....
Every night before we give Jovee a bath we read for about 30 minutes. She seems to really like that time. Last night she decided that she wanted to read to us!
Last Christmas Norris was given "Panda's Little Secret" from his parents. It was the same book that he was given at his first birthday. When he was little his mom and dad used to read it to him. The other day Norris decided that it was time to share with Jovee..."The Secret"
We have been told that we need to treasure the time that we have with Jovee at each stage. Now honestly I am glad that the newborn stage is over, but I will be quite sad when she leaves this stage! She is very snugly and I love it!
Right before we give her a bath!
Chillin' with Daddy
Showing Jovee our favorite place on earth....Thailand
Our Crazy Family! I love Jovee's face in these pictures!!!!!
Jovee has done a lot of things in the past week. Her biggest achievement has been rolling from her back to her front! She loves to do it! We set her down and over she goes. The problem is....she then gets mad that she is on her tummy and can't reach her toys. Now I know everyone says there baby is the best and does things super early but I think she might crawl soon. (Norris thinks I am crazy. He says she crawls about 1mm every two hours!!!!!!!!!) I think she has daddy's determined personality, you never know, right?
Also we got her a fun new toy. It is a walker and she loves to walk around with it! It is really cute because she just goes in a circle. I feel like she is like Kelsey my parents dog. She can only turn one direction :-)
Jovee uses a new bottle top!!!! If you know anything about her ability to eat, or lack there of, you will also be impressed. We had to buy some new bottles and we tried the tops and she could eat with them and not choke!!!! We were so excited. She can now eat in about 10-15 minutes instead of 30-45 minutes!!!! It is awesome!!!!!!
Other than that we are just hanging out trying getting ready to go back to school!!! Two more weeks of vacation!
