The month of June has brought me a lot of job applying, I think I'm up to 21 total applications now at different school districts here in Arizona. I had to start a spreadsheet just to keep track of where I've applied and what for. I've had 3 interviews, 2 more scheduled, and another in the works...I'm getting excited about all the responses and hope some school district can look beyond my big belly and hire me :) I'm not picky and would be happy to teach any grade level in any district!!
As far as Jaelyn updates, she's still going to school Tuesday and Thursday's and is enjoying it. We have been taking her swimming a few times a week and she is really getting the hang of it! She has gone from only wanting to sit on the steps to floating and "swimming" by herself with her water wings and a noodle. I'll have to get some pictures next time we are out there. Last summer she loved the pool and would jump in off the edge into our arms, this year her understanding of fear has taken over and she's not as friendly with the pool as she used to be, but we're having fun helping her like it.
We love to check on her every night as she sleeps cause she is so quiet and peaceful, this is what we found the other night...
Jaelyn also had her first visit at the dentist, I didn't expect that they were going to clean/polish her teeth and was so glad Marc was there to hold her down. After a little bit of expected crying she did a great job and opened up wide when the dentist wanted to "count" her teeth for her. She got to pick a toy from a grab box and chose a little puppy from the littlest pet shop that goes everywhere with her! Of course we were so proud of her so after the dentist we took her to get a donut at Dunkin Donuts...understandable, right?!?
Her new found love is her tu-tu, she started calling it her dress but loves to wear it as much as possible. It's pretty cute so we try to get her to dance everytime she wears it.
We recently threw a couples baby shower for our good friends Andy and Mary Ellen! It was so much fun having the guys in on the festivities and I'm sure they all loved figuring out "what did baby Davis eat?" as I melted a variety of chocolate bars in diapers. I enjoyed planning and decorating and using a variety of ideas from my previous baby showers. Thanks Mems and Jess I stole lots of your ideas :)

Even though I'm a terrible blogger I'll update tomorrow after our ultrasound, if the tech tells us how the baby Kinley is growing!
A few more updates from our family...I graduated with my Masters in Elementary Education, had to give a speech and go through two graduations. I've applied for every elementary teaching job in Arizona and I've had one interview so far. I'm hoping to hear more in the upcoming weeks. We spent most of May in Washington, my mom, Aunt Diane, Jaelyn and I drove from Phoenix to Kent in the beginning of May. Marc came during the middle of May and then drove home with us at the end of May. While we were in May we had an opportunity to spend time with lots of family and friends. It was a wonderful 3 weeks, but it went by so fast! I was lucky enough to be there when one of my best friends, Brooke, had baby Colin. I enjoyed being there and spending time with them before and after birth! I was thrown a beautiful baby shower for baby Kinley by Merissa and her mom! It was so fun celebrating with old friends, the whole thing made me feel so special! We also were able to drive up and spend a night with Marc's brother Tim and his girlfriend Jenn, we spent a lot of time at the beach, which was Jaelyn's first time!
Jaelyn is still doing great with potty training, she had so much fun in Washington hanging out with her cousins, aunties and uncles, and grama and bapa! Since we've been back she has been going to daycare every Tuesday and Thursday and is slowly getting used to her new schedule. I love that she gets that social time and mommy gets a couple days to get stuff done (or relax). She's getting so big and growing so fast, she is talking in sentences and makes us laugh everyday. She LOVES Dora right now and is still overly obsessed with her bunny! I could go on and on but I don't know where to begin and where to end...I'll just try to do better with the updates!
Marc is done traveling and it has been great having him be home so much. He's still working away at getting his Masters degree and is in the middle of his third class. He just got his wisdom teeth removed on Friday, but is doing awesome with recovery and I would say he's almost back to normal! Our good friends Andy and Mary Ellen, expecting August 12, just moved to Phoenix and we couldn't be happier. It's like having family here and it's so nice to have them a short car ride away. We've been spending a lot of time with them and look forward to having our kids grow up together!Alright, I can't think of anything else right now! Good night!

These last three days we've been out to Peter Piper Pizza, playing outside, hanging at the neighbors, Red Robin, Daddy's work, and Target and have not had an accident!At Target today she informed me that she had to go potty so we checked out and ran to the bathroom and she went potty, she's doing so good, even on the big potty. I don't want to jinx myself, but I'm pretty proud of my little monster!

Jaelyn is constantly making us laugh (and pull our hair out). She is a toddler with a mind of her own and has no problem expressing her feelings no matter where we are! It's made for some interesting outings (sorry Mary Ellen)...She is very opinionated and we try to give her as many choices as we can because she is so proud with the results. She is such a big helper and loves to help mom in the kitchen...she's great at putting peperoni on bagel pizza's! The daycare loves her and can't stop telling us how great her vocabulary is, how much she talks, and how polite she is. Which makes us feel great because around the house we get alot of "NO's" and break downs :). She is good at entertaining herself and really loves being in her room, even in the morning when she wakes up, she doesn't come and get us, she just grabs books or toys and climbs back into her bed. Her hair is getting so long and is still curly, I love putting it in full pigtails, she looks so cute!
