there is a zebra in my pocket!

paw-paw and mimi:  here is the little jasper lilith in her little safari dress!  she was quite taken with the pocket zebra 🙂

it was a warm day today – windows open and jasper’s arms exposed – not winter at all but you won’t hear me complaining!

hanging out on the big couch of life…

i walk in to the living room and see jasper lilith just spread out on the couch chewing on a teething thingey and listening to the music i had on…she was completely relaxed and completely unaware of me watching her…

she just looks so comfortable…

2007: the year of the table…

this is a table with a long history (october 2005 was it?) and a drawn-out story but forget all that!  let us just appreciate The Finishing of the Table…WHOOP!! 

now this has nothing to do with jasper although i guess i could set her under or on top of the table to give it the jasper touch but i am posting some pictures of this table regardless!  although honestly, the pictures do not do the table justice – the wood grain is simply gorgeous and my camera doesn’t capture that…

handmade and made beautiful by my talented husband – thank you, jon!

one of the pieces that jon used (quite deliberately) had bullets from pop’s childhood embedded in the wood…this is one example of one of the displayed and polished bullet fragments…pretty cool!

dad and barbara!

dad and barbara (or pawpaw and mimi) got jasper a very cute outfit at christmas…it is supposed to have a long sleeve white shirt that goes underneath it but the day that i put this on her, well, it was over 70 degrees…

she seemed to enjoy wearing it because it flounced…that is right, the skirt is a bit fuller than most of her other skirts or dresses and jasper liked to move just to watch the skirt move…i tried to catch her in twirling action but alas, all was blurry…well, i mean more blurry than this picture is 🙂

even standing still, the girl moves!   but i love that dress and barbara, those muted colors look great on her!

jasper in repose…

welp, jasper lilith has since discovered how to climb on the chairs!  she has had bed climbing down for quite some time now but chairs?  nope, not until we were visiting her nana…her breakfast chairs had rungs that jasper could climb up just like a ladder…well, i was hoping that she wouldn’t be able to conquer chairs so quickly at our house since our dining room chairs are bigger and rungless but no, false hope that!  she just perseveres (and grunts and groans and wiggles and even will move the chair into a Better Position) until she gets up there…

she is going to give me gray hair!  i am very worried about her toppling over and that tile floor will not be forgiving at all…

jasper might as well have a cup of coffee instead of that sippy cup!  jon and i hear the chair rearranging that signifies a jasper in the vicinity and we turn around and lo and behold!  we have a little jasper sitting on the chair with her sippy cup (which she put up there herself) reading my magazine that i had on the table…just 16 months going on 30…man, oh, man…

jasper also finds her pacifier and after a rather harrowing reach, she gets it, puts it in her mouth, sits back down and goes on to show something to us that caught her interest…

her computer chair climbs are giving her da fits!  not because of the chair climb itself (thank you carpet!) but the fact that once she gets up in the chair, she wants to use the keyboard like we do…and when i mean use it, i mean punch as many buttons as fast and as hard as she can before her da comes to get her down…

she does look quite pleased with herself, doesn’t she?

and now sometimes she races her da to the computer chair – of course, she gets very upset when he doesn’t let her win…and then has the audacity to actually sit in her computer chair!
