10 months of Joy

Jayda turned 10 months on August 12th and boy, have we accomplished a lot! We just got back from her 2nd airplane trip to Indianapolis. She was absolutely perfect on the airplane (I definitely worry way too much.) She slept, had snacks and smiled at everyone around us. Jayda even tried to share her rice cake with the gentleman that was sitting next to us. Once the safe landing in Indianapolis, we were able to spend time with my amazing family and friends. Jayda was quite the hit. She now smiles when you have a camera aimed at her...what a ham! I love it! Unfortunately, I did not take one picture, so family, please send me pics soon! Now back to our every day lives in Tampa. My nanny did send me this picture from her phone today, while I was at work. I absolutely love it! Time to start planning the first birthday......

Proud Sister

I may not talk to my brother as much as I want or should, but who is to say that I can't be proud of him. Introducing, TONOS TRIAD, featuring Aaron Ransdell on the Bass...

The Face

This is Jayda's new face. Not sure if I would say it is cute, but it is quite funny. When someone Jayda has never met or has not seen in awhile says hello to her, she makes this face. Not a nice warm smile, nope, you get the face. Hopefully this is just a phase and won't last too long!

Catching up with old friends

What a great Sunday! One day a year, I get to see and catch up with an old friend from my younger years. Today was that day. There was a point in our lives that we were inseperable. We rode bikes, saw each other every day, and I even went on family vacations with her. BFF for life right?! Well, not exactly. We grew up and moved even farther away from each other. We never talk on the phone or email. BUT...once a year, she comes to St. Pete Beach for her family timeshare and we get to chat for hours without skipping a beat. I can't help but smile when I am writing this because nothing is better than catching up with old friends. Thanks Trish for such a great day!

To Nana Kate,

Love, Jayda
