My 9 Month Old!

3/4 of a year
274 days
6,574 hours...

no matter how you say it, my baby girl is 9 months old!

  • She has graduated to feeding herslef pretty much everything (cut into tiny bits, of course!) Shredded cheese, avocado and green beans are some of our favorites!
  • She loves her sippy cup and water.
  • She is almost crawling. ALMOST. Like in the next few days it should happen.
  • This is the first time her age and PJ size match. Still wearing mostly 6 month clothes.
  • She got to see her first snow. She thought it was cool to watch it from the window!
  • She also waved bye bye and kissed the baby in the mirror for the first time on her actual birthday.
  • 9 month stats: 17 lbs, 12 ounces (25-50%) and 28 1/4 inches (75%)
We've had a great month together, but I go back to school next week. Can't believe in 3 months we'll be celebrating her first birthday!

Sick, Sweet and Funny!

The week between Christmas and New Year's Day is always one of my favorite weeks of the year. It is usually a time that we are off-work/school and are able to unwind from the holiday madness and just enjoy some family time together. This year has been a little different. Brady and I have both had our turn with the oh-so-exciting stomach flu, each separately, so its been roughly a week of sickness. We both thought we were dying. Ellis has managed to so far escape any such sickness thankfully!

In the day between our sicknesses, when it was so warm outside, we decided to take Ellis to the park for the first time. Our favorite neighbor, Hallie was there. A good time was had by all!

Being sick we haven't left the house much. This morning after putting E down for her nap, Brady was looking out the window and notice this lovely display of affection someone created our of our still up Christmas decorations. We both had a good laugh. Hopefully, everyone driving to church this morning also had a good laugh. If you would like credit, please contact me!
