Suzi sprouts a tooth and dances; Jordan and I have "date night"

Suzi loves music. When we ride in the car she'll cry if we don't turn some music on and then she sings along. She learned that from mommy and daddy (the singing along, not the crying).

Jordan and I had "date night" last night. We went last-minute shopping at Ross because I've lost enough weight that my jeans were practically falling off (hallelujah!). While we were there, Jordan found a copy of the two most wholesome movies ever made, Problem Child and Problem Child 2. Jordan and I both love these silly movies. So we tucked Suzi into her crib, put a frozen pizza in the oven and cuddled on the couch. It was so much fun. Then we ate ice cream (well I had a smoothie with yogurt; I want to continue to fit into my jeans) and fell asleep watching the second movie. So we'll be continuing our date tonight when Suzi goes to bed. I love Jordan and most nights I feel like I'm having a sleepover with my best friend!

Suzi pictures:

Playing peekaboo with Daddy around me. She still loves peekaboo, in all its variations!

Reading her very first birthday card ever! It was from Aunt Laura and Uncle Calvin, who brought her gift over early. They gave her two little summer dresses. She had a great time opening them.

"Listen up! I'm teething, and I'm going to chew on whatever I want! And I don't want to hear another word about it!" (In this case she was chewing on a felt egg I sewed for her before Easter.)

She crawls around with this big teething ring in her mouth. It's cute. Her teething pains are finally paying off; she has another tooth! I'm excited because I think soon we'll be able to tell whose teeth she has. Hopefully Jordan's; his are made of rocks. It's on the top left and it's just poked through.

She looks very cute! I love the picture od her with the felt egg in her mouth.

Date nights are fun. John and I will sometimes watch a movie after the kids go to sleep.

Too cute! Yeah, Elaina was right around 10 1/2 months when she started taking her first steps. You've got time...Suzi may be toddling around everywhere by the time you go to the aquarium! I think we may go to the NINO meeting for a while in the morning so maybe we'll see you guys there!

Date nights are the best- no matter where you go (or don't go!)

I loved the video of her dancing. That was SO cute. Where in the world did you get her tye-dye shirt. Unfortunately for everyone at home I'm a fan of tye dye and I would love to get one for Cloe.
