The Christensen's slice of family life in a rural small Iowa Town
Welcome to our Family blog. We are currently living in Iowa Falls, IA.
We hope that our everyday things will brighten your day. It is my hope that this blog will be a way to communicate to our family and friends. I also hope that once we get more free time I can communicate fun things going on in our world, new recipes and crafty things I have done as Chloe will allow me too.
Yes I can't believe it either! all you family members, there will be a special party for you and Chloe on January 30th, you know who you are...
Invites are in the mail, all of our family and friends that live closer to Iowa Falls and don't want to travel to Des Moines we will have her Birthday Party at our house on the 6th! We are so excited!
It seems that this year has gone by so fast and yet it seems that we have always had Chloe in our life and I can't imagine life with out her! it so bitter sweet making/creating this invite, my heart doesn't know what to feel, sad happy booth, just last night daddy was able to rock her to sleep she didn't even want to be nursed! I remember thinking wow I can't wait for these days to be over and now when those nights are ending I am so sad but amazed at the growth she has made this year!
Chloe is crawling all over, she prefers to crawl, and has no desire to walk, even though she is so close to standing and taking that first step. We will see if she will walk in the next couple weeks. Her new game is to "catch Chloe" she LOVES it! she will squeal and look at you and then start crawling fast so you have to catch her... She also is mimicking everything you do, as far as her skill level goes. for example if I have something that I am writing with she will want it and will try to do it, you could see how fun meal times are... It's a skill I am trying to achieve to get her to eat again, she was doing better until she realized that she could do "it"
Really fun times huh? I love it and she is such a good happy baby that loves to sleep in, I love that too!
