9 months...a little late!

I am FINALLY getting to our 9 month post! Not even going to make excuses as to why it's taken me so long!!! =)
We are having too much fun with our baby girl! She is constantly on the go!!! Here's what Gracie is up to these days......




  • At your 9 month appointment, you weighed 18 lbs 9 oz (50th percentile)

  • You were 28 1/2 inches tall (75-90 percentile)

  • I can't remember what your head measured, but it was in the 90th percentile! Yes... you have a big head to hold all those brains!!! =)

  • You are wearing a size 3 diaper

  • You are still wearing 6 months clothes. Mainly 6-9 months. A lot of your 9 month outfits are a little big.

  • You are wearing size 2 and 3 shoes. Your feet are small!!!

  • You are crawling EVERYWHERE!!!! You just recently started bear crawling and its the funniest thing ever!

  • You pull up on everything. This makes your Momma very nervous, but your Daddy says it will just take a couple times falling and you'll realize not to do it again!!

  • You jabber ALL the time! We can't always understand what you say, but you are always moving those lips!!! You have started mocking things I say.... I kept saying mine mine mine the other day. You looked at me and said, "MINE". Too cute!!!

  • You don't care much for your jumperoo and love to roam around the house. You especially love joining me in the kitchen while I'm trying to cook. This never works out very well!!!

  • You will eat pretty much anything. You have been staying with your "GiGi" 4 days a week, and she feeds you like a Queen!!! From fresh blueberries, to chicken and wild rice.... you love it all!! You snarl your nose at us when we try to feed you baby food.... now that you've had your taste of real food, you want nothing to do with it!

I have been a BAD blogger lately! I just realized I wrote this on July 28th and NEVER posted!!! Its old news, but I want to be able to look back on it one day!!

It's Thursday......

and i've been a bad blogger this week!!! I'll do our "official" 9 month post after our Dr's appointment today, but I had a few pictures I wanted to share!!!

I can't believe how "grown up" my baby looks!!!



Pretty big blue eyes!! Every where we go, people comment on how pretty her eyes are! Then she shots them her famous smile, and its all over!=)


Gracie Kate, you are growing tooo fast for your momma, but you sure are the cutest thing ever!!!

My friend Sarah and her husband Matthew are expecting their first child at the end of November. They had their "Gender reveal ultrasound" this morning! I just heard from Sarah what Baby C is gonna be! I'm not gonna spoil the fun by posting it just yet, but we sure are excited for them and Gracie can't wait to meet her new playmate!!!

Manic Monday

My morning yesterday didn't get off to the greatest start. Around 2 am a large bolt of lightening struck our house. Of course it scared the bejeevies out of us! Josh jumped out of the bed and was yelling the entire time!! lol Thank goodness Gracie slept straight through it. But, unfortunately, my iPhone did not make it through the storm and yes, I started tearing up at 2 am in the morning because of this. I know some think its ridiculous, but I feel completely lost right now! I ordered a new phone yesterday, but it won't be here for at least a week. Soooo, in the meantime, i'm using my sisters old blackberry that I had stuffed away in a drawer. The "A" key and symbols don't work. You should see my text conversations. Pretty interesting!!!
We discovered last night it also took out our DVD player. We can live without that and considering they are less than 50 bucks, no biggie. However, Josh just called me a bit ago and told me the Utility people came out and shut off our power today, cause they said our box was fried!!! Josh kept saying he thought we'd have more damage and I guess he was right. The main thing is, the three of us are A-OK!


I'm sharing another fabulous picture Jasmin took, since the majority of my pictures are taken with my phone and I don't have any others right now. Gracie will be 9 months tomorrow and I just can't believe it!! She has changed soooo much in the past 3 weeks!!! I'll share more tomorrow on our 9 month post!!! =)

It is a VERY crazy Tuesday and I just have a few mins!



Cute, silly girls!!! Taylor was such a good momma. She was trying to feed Gracie her bottle (with the cap on) and even tried to help get her shoe back on, when it fell off!!!
