Super Star!

This one is for Trisha. She has been so supportive and helpful with this whole blogging thing. I have to give her something to read. I probably wouldn't keep up on this if she wasn't nudging me along.

Jayda is getting so big. She is rolling all over the place and has learned to turn in circles. She wants to be moving all the time. We went swimming the other day so I took a few pictures of her in her swim suit. She is adorable!

As you can see Jayda doesn't skip meals. She is 18 lbs now and wearing 12-18 month clothes. Who would have thought I'd have such a big baby...ha,ha. You have seen her dad...!

Here is another pic of our baby diva...As you can see she is teething again and her shirt happens to be the best tasting.

Spring Fling

Spring is here and everyone in the Villa house is enjoying the outdoors. We hung out in the backyard through spring break. The kids played outside and Jayda was chillin' in the hammock. We rolled around in the grass and played in the spa.

We had a fun surprise from the Easter Bunny this year. He hid eggs filled with $$$ for the big kids and Jayda had a few toys in her basket. She got a jiggly dog that she just adores. Grandma Sandy and Gram came over and colored eggs. We all enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane using all our artistry skills coloring eggs.

Jayda started on solids recently. She loves all the vegetables so far. She hasn't tried green beans yet but I'm sure she will love them. She is sitting up almost by herself. She still tips over a bit like a weeble wobble. She's getting up on her hands and turning herself in circles on the floor. She's just growing to fast.

Lora is playing soccer for school. They've won all their games. She had a game today and she made a goal for the first time. She was very excited and proud of herself.

Jr. is working hard at mastering adding and subtracting fractions. We all know how much fun that is. It's tough but he is working hard to get extra help and doing all his homework. Good job bub!!!

Elijio is going to Laughlin to do the River Run on his motorcycle next week. He is really excited and is looking forward to hanging out with our friends Chuck and Jo Ann. We miss you guys!!!

I'm just enjoying my family and all the excitement and drama that goes along with it. School is almost out...only 5 weeks left. I can't wait to spend the summer being a mom.
