Chloe: 9 Months

My baby is 9 months old! I can't believe it. Here is her photo with the "growth chart bear!"


As you can tell, she is not happy. Are you ready for the reason?

She is scared of the bear.

Ha ha! She did the same thing last month and I thought maybe it was just that she was tired, but sure enough, she did it again! I plopped her down, she looked behind her shoulder at the bear's face.... Complete meltdown. This is what immediately followed:




As she gets more mobile I have a feeling it's going to become much more difficult to get a good growth chart picture of her with the "scary bear!"

Anyway, she had her 9 month checkup this week. She is 22.6lbs (90th percentile) and 18.5" long (75th percentile). My little girl is a big girl!

Chase in the Hat

That sounds funny if you read it fast... like "Chasin' the hat." ANYWAY....


On the Saturdays I have the kids I have been taking them to Barnes and Noble for their weekly "Story Time." They read the kids a story and then do a craft that relates to the story. This week, to celebrate NEA's Read Across America project, they read "The Cat in the Hat," and then the kids got to make hats. Well, it happened to be a very irritatingly putsy project, so the parents ended up making the hats while the kids sat back and enjoyed the show with their cookies and juice (nice, huh?). Chase loves the hat, though, so I guess trying to glue and cut and tape while wrestling with a now-mobile 9-month-old (who wants to get her hands on EVERYTHING) was worth it!

On the Move!

Time to baby proof!!

video

She started crawling at her daddy's house this weekend. And then when I was laying on the floor with her today she grabbed onto my hip and hoisted herself up onto her feet! The girl loves standing up, so I shouldn't be surprised that would be her next move so soon! Anyway, she is so proud of herself. She loves that she can get around now, but now Chase and I have to protect his toys from her eager grasp! When she picks up speed I am going to get lots of exercise!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


The kids were all decked out in their greens for St. Patrick's Day.


Chase was resistant to the photo shoot request, but he ended up having lots of fun with his little sister! Here are some of my favorite candids of them playing:







Hope everyone had a great St. Patty's Day!
