My Favorite Month....#9

Miss Bailey is 9 months old (yesterday), and has made a lot of changes this past month. We had her check-up today with the doctor, so here is the list of her growth changes...
  • Weight - 18lbs 3 1/2oz (39%)
  • Height - 27 1/2 in (49%)
  • Head - 17 1/2 (65%)

This past month has been full of changes and so far it is my FAVORITE! I have to imagine that it only keeps getting better from here too...walking, talking, etc. Bailey is FULL of personality, is LOUD just like her parents (see previous post if you don't believe me), and LOVES her new found freedom. Here is the list of Bailey's new tricks...

  • She Crawling (hands & knees on the carpet...hands & feet on the tile)
  • Has curly hair...just like mom
  • Pulls herself up on everything
  • Is much more interested in Bronco & his toys then her own
  • Sits with her legs crossed (even in her carseat...SO cute)
  • Drinks out of a sippy cup
  • Gives kisses when you ask for them
  • Will look for Bronco when you say his name or Doggy
  • Throws with her left hand (Daddy is so proud)
  • Top 2 teeth just broke through the skin
  • Loves to sit on the seam where the carpet & tile meet and shake her legs (I think she is comparing the difference between the two)
  • Is Eating Solids...at least pears, sweet potatoes, squash, & carrots (full story & diagnosis to come after a visit with some specialists at Phoenix Children's Hospital)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this little girl and her BIG personality. I just can't believe that her 1 year mark is now less then 3 months away...let the party planning begin!

Scream Machine

(Warning - You may want to turn your volume down just a little!)

We seriously CAN'T get enough of this little girl, especially during moments like this. She is NOT lacking in the personality department that is for sure, and I don't think a "QUIET" home is anywhere in our near future! You just keep screaming and being you Bailey...we LOVE it!

Where's Bailey...

A few weeks ago Bailey finally decided to venture off the carpet and into uncharted territory, aka the tile floor. She quickly discovered a whole new exciting world to explore and here was one of her first adventures...

It was fun for awhile, until she wanted to get out and couldn't figure out how to get her head back under the chair. I probably should have been helping her, but then I wouldn't have this picture after she did finally break loose.

Belated Update & Birthday

So now that Bailey is 8 1/2 months I figured it was time to give her 8 months update...to be honest I don't remember a ton, she changes so much everyday. So it will be a short list, but here are a few of her accomplishments from the 8th month....
  • Had her 1st real belly laugh, and has been laughing a ton ever since (thanks cousin Reese for getting it all started!)
  • Moves around the room in her own non-traditional way
  • Pushes up onto all fours, aka the Mogley crawl
  • Can push herself up to a sitting position
  • Still no solids
  • Loves to splash in the bathtub, and tries to splash the water into her mouth

I feel like a super bad wife, because this is a very belated B-day post for my hubby. On Aug. 1st Clint turned 29, only one more year til the BIG 3-0, when did we get so OLD? To celebrate his big day we went out to lunch to Famous Dave's, which was delicious and then later that night he had a night out with the GUYS! Nothing says 29th Birthday celebration like a Monster Truck Rally...the guys had a blast and I am glad he was able to do something fun on his day. We celebrated with friends and family the next day with a BBQ at our place which was a blast, but I didn't even get a picture of him blowing out the candle...go figure! Happy late Birthday Clint...your girls LOVE you so much and are so blessed to have you in our life! Love ya!
