Memorial Weekend

What a fun weekend we all had in Missouri. We went to go see Grandpa, Nana and Uncle Sam at Lake of the Ozarks. You had a very busy weekend with shopping at the outlet malls, swimming, visiting and more swimming. You absolutely love the pool. It was your first time in a big pool and you really enjoyed yourself. Blakely you would kick, make your boat sound and put your face in the water. It was just so cute. We are looking forward to more times in the pool this summer. Thank you Grandpa and Nana for a fabulous weekend.

9 Months Old

Blakely you are so much fun! Your fun little personality is really showing and we love it! We went to your 9-month Dr. visit on Tuesday and he said you were perfect. He wasn't to concerned about you crawling yet. He said you would soon enough. *Weight - 17 lbs 10 oz*Height - 28 3/4 inchesDevelopment: stands alone holding on to things, scoots around on the floor, taken steps with help from mommy or daddy, can clap your hands, close to waving bye, dances to musicVerbal: says dada, mama, bye-bye, duck, you are constantly babbling all kinds of words and are truly enjoying making soundsSleep: you are taking two naps a day - between an hour to an hour and a half long, you usually go to sleep around 8 and wake up between 6:30 and 7:00Food: I am still nursing you in the morning and at night you eat cereal and fruit in the morning, lunch you have a sippy cup of formula and veggie puffs or sometimes fruit, dinner you eat almost anything 2nd foods - you are starting to get somewhat picky about the veggies, especially green beans, we are working on you eating 3rd foods, snacks consist of veggie puffs, fruit puffs, biter biscuits and wagon wheelsWe are really enjoying this age. You are so much fun! You love people and being out and about. When we go to Wal-Mart or Target you get really excited about being in the cart. I think you love all the attention you get from everyone. You also love being at the Mall in your stroller. You were so cute yesterday at the mall - we were walking by A & F and you started moving to the music they were playing. You love being outside in your swing or strolling around the neighborhood. You love playing with all of your toys on the floor. Your favorites right know are the roll around balls. You still love your Jumper and Intellatainer. It is hard to believe that in three months you will be a year old. We are already planning your party! Mommy and Daddy love you Blakely and we are so proud to call you our daughter.

They also had some little kittens and you enjoyed watching and grabbing them. We are so excited to have great friends that we can do fun stuff with. We also can't wait for baby Julia to arrive on June 2nd or maybe even earlier.Thanks Sara and Bella for a fun time!

Dance, Dance, Dance

This past weekend we traveled to Helena to see your cousin Darby in her dance recital. You got to see Grammy, Papaw, Darby, Zach and Michelle. You had such a great time with your cousins. They played with you, fed you and loved on you all day. We wished we lived closer so we could see them more often. You absolutely loved the dance recital! You watched the entire two hour production and enjoyed every minute of it. When Darby was doing her solo you let out a little happy scream to cheer her on. By the way Darby you did an excellent job! You are such a great dancer. You also got to spend some quality time with Grammy and Papaw. You had lots of fun with them. We hope to see everyone again real soon.
