Jaden plays with one of the coolest toys ever....a big new box from G&G K!
Last Monday I had to go to Mexico the help out a Servant Event group. I thought I was going to have to translate. It was I good thing that I didn't because I don't think Jaden would have made it the whole day! The house where the group was holding an eyeglasses clinic is VERY small and their yard is dirt and there are a ton of dogs. SO, he couldn't just crawl around on the ground (even though he REALLY wanted to!) He did have fun playing in the back of the truck for awhile. This marks Jaden's 2nd International Adventure. We'll be going back to on Saturday!
Apparently Jaden worked up a good appetite in Mexico because that night, boy was he hungry! Eating beans was QUITE an adventure this night. He got GOOD and dirty! But boy, were those beans YUMMY!!!
Beans over here, beans over there, beans in the hair, beans EVERYWHERE!!!
He did let Grandma K push him around a bit though!
So far, he can't quite keep up with it walking but, he has stood up next to it a few times, and he has been pushing it while crawling. I think he's getting the hang of it!
Of course, the Grandparents from up north had to bring a fun ski hat! It's starting to get cold in El Paso (there may even be snow by Sunday) and there are many more options for cool hats up north than here. SO, here is the little man getting ready for winter in his crazy hat!
I couldn't help it.....It's just too funny!
What do you think? Cute? Cool? Crazy?

Also, one of his favorite new foods is Advocado! Here is one particularily messy day and the many faces of advocado!
And this is me, just being cute! Of course, I would be cuter if mommy could have gotten the black bean juice off of my face after dinner...but, my bath was soon to come!

This video is a little bit long but it's pretty funny if you want to see and hear Jaden "help" with the laundry and tell a story all at the same time!
Look, he likes to recycle too!!! Tell me, when he sees the dog, do you think he is saying "Jack" or "dog" we figure it is one of the two but we can't figure out if he actually says DOG or if he thinks a dog is actually called a Jack and says THAT when he sees other dogs too!
In other news, at 9 months (really...he's been alive as long as I was pregnant already?!?!?!?!)
- teeth 6 & 7 have made their appearance
- 20 lbs 11 oz, 28.5 inches tall
and a standing, laughing, chatterbox.
His new tricks are sticking out his tongue when you say, "Jaden where is your tongue?" Clapping his hands when you start singing "pat-a-cake" and throwing his hands up in the air when you say, "Jaden how big are you?....Sooooo big!" I'll try to get those on a video one of these days!

Catching some zzz's in the car on the way to SD! We don't have a picture but technically this was the first time that Jaden saw snow...but it melted as it hit the ground and he slept through most of it...so I'm not totally sure that it counts!
And at Jerry & Arlene's Jaden got to ride his first trike! Jerry's dad had restored this from when Jerry was a kid. It was a little big. But, with grandpa's help Jaden had a great time!
Back and Great Grandma & Grandpa's the next day Jaden got to see Great Uncle Denny, Great Uncle DelRoy & Karen, and Great-great aunt's Dee, Verna, Lila, and Elizabeth
here comes the tickle bug!
Walking around the mall with Grandma
The last night before returning home!
Playing in the fall leaves on the only day it was nice enough to go outside (the day we left!)
