9 Months...well closer to 10 now!


Zoe's 9 month 'birthday' hit when we were out visiting family in Texas and I failed to do a post. We just went to her 9 month check up yesterday so I figure it is fitting to do the post now even though she will be 10 months in 9 days.

She's 20 lbs, 30 inches long and has a larger than average head circumference :).

She has decided she likes eating, mostly when it is finger food she can feed herself, string cheese is her current favorite. She just got her third tooth.

She squeals in delight when her brother plays with her, especially when he chases her and lets her chase him.

She enjoys flipping through books, we will see if we will be lucky enough to be blessed with another child that loves reading.

She can say uh-oh, clearly and at appropriate times, like when she 'accidentally' drops her food on the floor while looking at us with an adorable smile.

She waves bye-bye and claps.

AND...

She took her first steps, 3 or 4 actually, today!!

Malachi's Morning Prayer

"Thank you for Autumn and Hunter and Savannah.
Thank you for all their souls.
Thank you for our tummies and belly buttons.
Amen"

Long Overdue Update

To all...three or so:)...faithful readers I do apologize for the dry spell of posts. I want to bring you up to date but don't want this to suck up tons of time since one of my goals/resolutions for this year is to spend less time on the computer. If you want more details I love phone calls or face to face get togethers :)

Kurtis finished up work on the 19th of December, we spent Saturday packing up the car and addressing/stuffing/stamping Christmas cards. We got in the car and left for Texas around
10:30 pm. We drove straight through, a few stops for gas, food and a bit of shut eye and 26 hours later we arrived at my parent's house in Dallas.

We had a great time there with my family. We didn't do a whole lot but rest and enjoy being together. We were able to get a family photo even, we haven't done that in years. (this is going to get a lot shorter...Zoe just woke up)

We left Dallas, drove through Conroe (a possible place we could move since Kurtis' work has an office there) and 36, yes that is right, 36 HOURS later we were back home!

The kids did fabulous on both trips! We are glad to be home and are getting settled back in.

Gotta go!
