Welcome to our blog!! Now get comfy & stay awhile....We are no longer private... so if we aren't on your blog feed then get to gettin' and add us back on there!! jdandmicahfolsom.blogspot.com:) While you're at it, might as well put my photog blog on there too, right?! micahfolsomphotography.com/blog. You're the best!


our little {eckerciser}...as Gamps would say

Check out Jonnie doing what Mommy SHOULD be doing! haha... I guess JD hasn't figured out how to 'not bring work home' since today was a lifting day. What a cutie though. I just can't get enough of her!


Jonnie's SIX months

I can't even believe our baby is already SIX months!! She is so much fun and learning new things every day. Some things she has mastered:
-Rolling over every which way
-Sitting up like a champ
-Getting on her hands and knees and rocking
-Army crawl
-Standing against things or while holding Daddy's hands
-Eating puffs:]

Some things she has NOT mastered:
-Sleeping through the night:[
-Still toothless:]
-Napping without Mommy right by her side for more than 10 minutes.

Needless to say, Jonnie and I have so much fun hanging out together ALL day long! I think this may play into the fact that she knows the SECOND I walk away from her when she's sleeping... which definitely affects what I'm able to get done while JD is at work... but I'm not gonna complain too much cause I love snuggling with her! Here are a montage of pictures we've taken the past little while....

Oh yeah.. We are finally settled out here in our own little apartment and it's been so nice to not be living out of bags anymore!!

Ok back to what you all came here to see:]


Bokampers & Update

Last night we headed over to one of our favorite restaurants here in Florida.... Bokampers. I seriously love this place! Some of the yummiest, biggest burgers around! Kim Bokamper is the owner and also a former Miami Dolphins player back in the day. You might also recognize him from his famous shower scene with Jim Carrey in the Ace Ventura movie. If you don't remember, you can go and see it here. He's pretty much a big wig around here.... along with being a former player, restaurant owner, and movie star, he also covers the channel 4 sports here in Florida. They were doing some sort of radio show last night at the restaurant so a bunch of the players headed over there to either talk on the show or just be there for pictures and autographs. It was a fun time and lots of yummy food, my favorite part for sure!
This is the gang.... Ryan Baker (D-End), Kim Bokamper, Me, Brett (JD's agent), JD & Jonnie girl. 

Some of the Dolphin's cheerleaders were there so we figured it would be fun for Jonnie to get a picture with them. If you look closely, you can see that Jonnie has a tight hold on the blonde's hair. I had the hardest time getting her fingers out with all the hairspray she had!! It was hilarious! Good thing she wasn't wearing a wig! It would have come off for sure!
JD, Brett, and Ryan again. Isn't my husband just so handsome?! 


We finally have the low down about what's going on with us so I'll briefly let you in on the skinny.  They did waive JD today to cut the roster down to 53:[ We expected this though because of the things they said about JD being undersized right now.  On a brighter side, they immediately had him sign the papers to be on the 8 man practice squad... while they BEEF him up! They kept 6 guys from the current roster and are looking to pick up 2 more from the waiver wire.... (other team's cuts)... Since there are over 400 guys who are outta jobs today completely.... we are super appreciative of the fact that we still have one! His linebacker coach told him he better stay on top of the stuff and be ready cause they'll pull him up onto the active roster if any of the linebackers or special team players get injured or start sucking it up. So while it was sort of a bummer to get waived... we are more than happy to extend our stay here in Florida and anxious to see what'll happen this season! 

So proud of you sweetie!! 


Beach / Bows / & Babylicious

Saturday, Jonnie and I headed to the beach with the Schumers and Snyders. JD was at football so he had to miss out on all the fun.... It was just what we needed! Jonnie loved hanging out on Jake's air mattress {thanks for sharing} and couldn't get enough of the water. We ended our little afternoon getaway with the yummiest sandwiches I've ever had... Fire{something I can't remember!} Subs.
This is a HUGE step in the right direction for me.... Up until yesterday, I don't think I had ever done a craft... EVER. Thanks to miss Molly {craft woman of the century}, I learned how to make cute little {and big} bows for Jonnie's headbands. Here is the proof! Not bad for a first timer eh?

Now for the good stuff... JONNIE! What a hunka hunka burnin' love this girl is! She has definitely found her toes and is loving sucking on them! {delicious right?} It's too funny to make her stop... so we grab the camera instead! {Thanks Mal!} I just love hanging out with this little chicka all day, everyday, and am SERIOUSLY SO BLESSED:] Every night when we're going to sleep... I say to myself... 'ohh she is the sweetest thing'. She's my little chunky monkey, cutest gas filled {even in the silence of relief society}, cuddle bug that ever was!

Such an unnatural pose for a little one! haha... She was in the middle of doing some crazy arm movement when Mal caught her with it stuck straight out to the side. Funny woman.
