Lauren Crawls!

She finally figured it out! She started on Tuesday night and of course she's a crawling fool now! Crawling across rooms, getting into stuff she isn't supposed to already :), following mom around a room...

This one is long. Skip to about 1:45 to see some real crawling.

Before she figured it out, the last step was this little frog hop thing. Very entertaining to watch her do this one.

I like to watch 19 kids and counting. A couple of episodes ago they were filming Josh and Anna and Anna made something she called Chicken-etti. I tried to pay attention to what she said was in it but of course I forgot. I knew it was something I could make and we would like. I went to their site the other night and they had it listed! Yay! So in case you would like to make it also I'll repost it here:

Recipe for The Famous "CHICKEN-ETTI"

1 can of Rotel

1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup

1 cup of Milk

1/2 block of Velveeta Cheese

1 package of Spaghetti Noodles

3 Chicken Breasts

2 cups Mozzarella Cheese

Cook Chicken Breasts thoroughly, then slice into strips. Combine first four ingredients in bowl. Heat in microwave and stir until desired consistency is reached, milk may be more/less depending on whether you want sticky or runny sauce. Boil Spaghetti noodles and drain. Pour noodles in 9x13" pan, add cheese sauce and mix thoroughly. Top with Mozzarella cheese and Chicken Strips. Place in oven at 350 until cheese melts. Serve and Enjoy!!!

Zucchini Bread

Remember when I froze zucchini and had no idea what I was doing?

I finally made some bread a while back. I made a recipe I found on another blog and it was wonderful! I left out the raisins. Yuck. :)

I used the zucchini that I froze w/ the juice and everything worked just fine. I did notice the lady in that blog skinned the zucchini before using it. I didn't. IDK if it makes much of a difference. I will probably skin them next time.

7 months old!

I'm 7 months old!

Hmmm, what's this thing?

Why'd you put it back there mom?

Let me get that for you.

Does this thing really say that I'm 7 months old?!

Oh there's that paper thing again. I love paper! Let me get that and eat it!

I still can't crawl and it's so darn frustrating. I can get around though and usually can get to whatever it is that I want if I really work at it. I can go from laying on my belly to sitting up and I can go from sitting up to crawling position. Now if I could just GO GO GO!

I'm also giggling so much these days :)

Lauren loves the grass

This is Laurens first experience with grass. She loves it! I kept putting her in the middle of the blanket and she got herself over to the edge a couple of times to play with it. She loves to pull hair and this is kind of like that only better because it actually pulls!
