9 months

Well she made it to 9 months.  She is crawling everywhere and just as cute as a button.  She laughs all the time and is the joy of our life!  5 more months and I get to be home with her all the time and I can't wait!  These are some things that Jovee loves to do.......
 She still loves to read, but she does not quite have the hang of it yet!!!
 Her hair is getting curlier everyday!
 She loves to have as many toys in her hand as she can find
 She LOVES her friend Molly!
 Clapping at herself is one of her favorite pastimes
 She loves anything soft like her little teddy!
 She is very determined and will reach for something until she has it!
 She is the most beautiful thing in the world!
 She likes to explore but sometimes she gets stuck!

Bath Reading

Grandma Courliss got Jovee a fun book to read while taking a bath.  Jovee LOVES it.  When she sees the pictures she laughs...

Photo Shoot

Jovee had a photo shoot with Grandma Courliss.  They are great pictures!  I just wanted to share some of my favorites with you!

Christmas Pictures

I know I am a bit behind for the last 2 months.  Time really gets away when you travel!  We had a great time with family over the Christmas Holiday.  Jovee especially had a great time....

We found her love for dogs.  I swear she was saying "doggie" by the end of the trip.  Every time she saw Kelsy and Cody she would say it!

                                              We also got to spend a lot of time with family!!

Well Christmas really got away with us this year.  What a fun time...we flew to the States to see family and to celebrate the awesome holiday we are still free to celebrate.  It was a special holiday because we surprised the Bob and Marilynn at their church in Christmas Eve.  I honestly did not think the surprise would work.  We had the tickets for about 2 months and I just knew I was going to mess up one day on Skype.  There were moments I would let something slip about "When we are visiting" and then I would quickly add..."This summer!!!"  I am glad it seemed to work because they were soooooooo surprised on Christmas.  But other than that we also got to see Great Grandma Courliss and we got an awesome 4 generation picture!  It is a joy and humbling to have 4 generations in one room together.  Our family has been quite blessed.

Well Jovee had her first Christmas's and there were all a success.  We found her deep love for wrapping paper, dogs and anyone with a camera!!!!!!  What a fun personality the Lord has blessed her with.  Now I am in the process of trying to convince her dad that as much as we may want one, it is not the best time to get a dog!!!!  It is not that easy!!!!!!!

Well I hope you enjoy the video and Merry Christmas!!!!
