What's New with Us

Wow, it's been a crazy busy start of the New Year!  We were hoping for things to start to slow down, but with R's mom getting sick it hasn't.

Sadly, R's mom was recently hospitalized and diagnosed with bacterial meningitis, multiple strokes and multiple seizures. We've spent some time visiting her at the hospital but she's been mostly comatose up to this point. She has started to respond more to the treatments (she responds to pain and lifts fingers on command starting this week) and we are getting some response so we are very blessed for that. We're keeping her in our thoughts and prayers and hoping for a full recovery.

Grandma - we're pulling for you!




On a positive note, LittleB is growing up into a beautiful little girl.  She has 4 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth and is 9 1/2 months.  She just started taking steps this week.  She has taken 2 steps all by herself and will stand without holding on to anything for a few seconds.  She also loves to rock on her rocking horse!  Another favorite activity of hers is to rock her babies and stuffed animals. She even pats them on the back!  Such a good little mommy!  :D 

She is already testing her parents because when she is messing with something she isn't supposed to she looks at you like "What are you going to do about it?".  You would think a person could easy distract her, but not this girl she will go right back even after several minutes. Babies are smarter than we give them credit for.

Mommy has already started planning her 1st birthday and has the majority of it planned. When it goes to major events B likes to get them started early because she's not a last minute kind of person. She brings so much joy into our life!!!  Enjoy the pictures!


She has really outgrown this but wants in it all the time - so mommy puts her in it to cook dinner.  Good thing she loves her rocking horse now.


Such an innocent pose!


Cheesing it for the camera.


Rocking her stuffed animals.


I think she's been watching the dogs a little too much!  :D


Getting ready for bath and being silly.


Growing up so fast!


Didn't sleep well in the pack-n-play so we let her take a nap in the bed while staying with Aunt A and visiting R's mom in the hospital.

9 Month Check-up

LittleB had her check-up today and didn't have to get any shots but she sure thought she was getting some.  She weighed 18 pounds and 14 oz and was 29 3/4 tall.  She is in the 97 percentile for height.  Her head measured 42.5 cm.  Our little girl is growing up way too fast.

LittleB is 9 Months Today

Happy 9 Months LittleB!!!

LittleB is growing up so fast!  She goes in next week for her 9 month appointment.  I am really excited to see how much she has grown.  Every once in awhile she will take two naps but has started to convert down to one a day for the most part.  She has a hard time sleeping at other people's houses - it takes me over an hour to get her to sleep where at home she's usually out within 15-20 minutes. LittleB is going through a phase where she plays in her crib before she lays down and falls asleep.  She is cruising along things pretty well and lets go with one hand and sometimes stands without holding onto anything for a couple of seconds. My guess is that she will be walking in a month.   She also has become quite the mommy's girl and mommy thinks she's looking more like her.  We took her today to get her 9 month pictures and she did really well, did not cry but had a hard time sitting still for some of them (because she loves to rock back and forth).  Maybe we will get her a rocking chair for her birthday.  :D  Hope you enjoy the pictures!


So sweet!


She looks like she ready to get someone.


Getting ready to crawl.


Checking out the flower.



What a cute look!



Standing and playing with the flower



She took the flower from the photographer and put it right in the mouth.



Smiling and showing of her teeth.



Such a cute little pose!

Thank You!



Collage of some of the flower poses.



I'm a cutie. :D



But sometimes a stinker.



Let's go for a walk.



We had to give her the care bear to get her to sit still.
