Scrambled Eggs!

Well, I am extremely upset at this moment because the video we took was hilarious but will not upload. I tried 3 times. So you are stuck with just pictures! As you can tell by the faces, she is not a fan of scrambled eggs yet!

Goofy, Goofy Girl!!

Now that Amelia has mastered crawling she is working on the whole pulling herself up to things! This is great except that since we have gotten home I have found 3 bruises! Two on her forehead from trying to stand up to the door and one on her stomach. This morning we went to Target to get her a new toy! We wanted something she could stand up to in hopes that she would stop trying to stand up to our coffee table which is a little too tall for her! We succeeded! So far she loves her new toy! This thing has so many different tunes and buttons to push it is hard to not play with it! We also made a visit to the doctor for her 9 month appointment! Yikes, she is already 9 months! She weighed in at 21 lbs. and is 28 inches long! We would also like to tell Aunt Kelly that her head size is only in the 25Th percentile! She has a small head! We were also given the okay to feed her scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes! I can't believe we are to that point! All I have to say is that this appointment has made Ben and me really sad at how fast she is growing up. So there you go! All the news I have!
Hope you enjoy.

Getting ready to play with the new toy! It has a mini computer, phone, book and piano on the top!

Our child has to be the only 9 month old who still needs a bib! No wonder, when you leave her to drink her own bottle this is what happens!


I wondered where the little dirty spots were coming from on my carpet. I have now figured it out, dirt from dog sticking to milk on floor equals dirty spots. Hardwood floors are sounding better every minute! Notice the milk streaming down the side of the face to the ear!

So worried about what I am doing.




Should have saved the toy for Christmas and let her play with the box until then!

Purple phones. One of her other toys came with a purple phone also. She loves it and now she has a mini purple phone!

This child will wear anything on her head but her actual hats!

Wanting to read a magazine like Daddy.
Hello, Lawanda!

All smiles!




I know you can't see her face very well but she notices the camera now! She was making all sorts of noises while playing with this new toy!

Another Trip!

Here are some pics from our Illinois trip. Amelia and I stayed for almost a week! It was a lot of fun but we are glad to be home!
Hope you enjoy!
Sorry there are no pictures of Jacob or Colby! I really do love them!

Randy is already worn out from taking care of the twins for the afternoon!

Ella was more than thrilled to hold Sophia!

Amelia did not want to deal with anyone and chose to sleep through most of the visit.
Henry, happily sleeping.

Although, she was very excited over the movie playing in the car!
We will have to get one of those!

The San Diego Zoo!!!!

Animal Pictures! Here are some pictures from our trip to the zoo. I took about 200 pictures at the zoo so the next few posts will be of those! I had a little problem getting my camera to focus on the animals instead of the gates. Ben and I tried to figure it out but gave up! I suppose I should really ready that manual!
Hope you enjoy!
