All Modeled Out




Today mommy dressed me up in my Christmas clothes to take some pictures. (I even took a picture for grandma and grandpa with their doggie Tucker). After about 15 minutes of posing, I melted down. No more pictures!

Speaking of Daddy....


We had some fun at dinnertime last night while mommy was out running an errand. This is what I looked like when she came home.

My Favorite Person




Despite the fact that mommy is the one who I have been with non-stop since I was born, I'm totally, 100% a daddy's girl. My first words in the morning in my crib (mommy and daddy hear me on the monitor) are "dada", and then I continue to babble "dada" not only when I see daddy, but even when I don't. I can tell its starting to make mommy sad. Today I was singing "dada" when I was crawling, playing, eating in my highchair, and then in the baby bjorn at the store.

Here's a few shots of me and daddy lovin' on each other.

Gobble, Gobble!!!


Today was SUCH a fun day - my first Thanksgiving. I got to hang out with my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins all day while mommy cooked, and then I enjoyed the BEST meal I've ever had in my life (all 9 months of it)! I loved it all - stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberries.... I stuffed my face full!

I was having such an amazing time at dinner that I made everyone laugh, laugh, laugh. Mommy took a video of my turkey-induced hysteria!

Happy thanksgiving...I can't wait until next year!

So Many Updates, So Little Time....



Sorry I haven't posted in awhile...I've been so busy! I have the best news! Daddy is now home from New York City. It was a long 6 weeks apart but some things never change...I'm still "daddy's little girl". I pretty much have Daddy wrapped around my pinkie, but that's okay - I'm just as crazy about him as he is about me.

Other big updates from my corner of the world:
- I can now stand up in my crib
- My top right tooth came in, but I didn't even complain
- I'm eating lots of table foods and am not too wild about bottles lately
- I like to scream and shout when I don't get my way, especially if my food isn't served quickly enough
- I have mastered crawling and now I zoom around, mostly looking for dangerous things to get into

I'll post again soon to tell you about my first Thanksgiving.

(ps - no, I didn't stick my finger into an electric socket - that's just my hair!)

Sweet Home, Chicago


Bundled up for a chilly night


Small group pals: Noah, Tyler and Callie


Me with Nana and Papa


Mommy and I just got back from our trip to Chicago. It was SO much fun! I got to see lots of people in just a few short days - Aunt Laura and Cousin Anna, our old small group from church, mommy's work friends, and our next door neighbors, the Scotts. But the best part was being at Nana K and Papa J's house again. It felt just right, being back in my old stomping grounds again, playing games with Nana. This weekend, I even learned how to "high five" from Nana's friend Ellen. Pretty cool!

Headbanger


Me and Mommy flew to Chicago this weekend and met Daddy and the rest of his family for a big weekend of partying. It was great grandmother Cecilia's 100th birthday, and boy what a party it was! I think it was the biggest one I've ever been to!


Anyway, tonight after the festivities were over, I was having a nice time relaxing with Nana K and Papa J, and he started bobbing his head at me. Much to everyone's surprise, I did it back. Check out the video!!

9 Months and Growing...


Today I went to my new doctor in Colorado and had my 9 month checkup. I'm 28 inches long (60%) and 16.5 lbs (12%). I continue to be a string bean!!!

Mommy took this picture of me last night while I was sleeping. I tend to sleep with one (or both) arms directly underneath me... Daddy fears I'll dislocate a shoulder, but its comfortable to me. Actually you can't see it in this picture, but when mommy went to move me after she took this, she realized that my hands were actually FOLDED in each other behind my back.

Monkeying Around




Ever since I started crawling over the weekend, I've been able to explore many things that I used to only see from a distance. One of my favorite new discoveries is the set of drawers on the built-in entertainment center in the family room.

Among my many nicknames, mommy always calls me her "little monkey".... hmmm, I wonder why???

Yummy Mail


Ever since we moved to Colorado, we have been swamped with all sorts of mail, many of them offering services since we are new to the area. Today I walked with mommy to get the mail and then when we got home, I helped her open it. Have you ever tried tasting the mail? I love it... and then I discard what I don't need behind me. Check it out in this video mommy took.
