Happy 9 Months!

How did our cutie spend her special 9 month day?

Dressed up as the cutest farmer girl ever!



I am a huge fan of babies in overalls! Ryan practically lived in them his first year of life. I finally dug out and washed Kara's 9 month size clothing so she could get some wear out of them before the weather gets too warm. They are still a little too big but it felt good to pack up the 6 month clothing!

Of course, I had to take a ton few pictures of her in all her cuteness!



A lot has happened in the past month. Kara mastered all the stage 2 foods (only hates peas) and will be starting stage 3 foods soon. We tried Gerber puffs the other day. She mostly played with them but a few did make it to her mouth. We were impressed with how she was able to gum them and not swallow them right away, so no gagging!


Peek-A-Boo! Guess who is finally cutting her bottom teeth? Yes, I know we've been saying these teeth were coming for like the past 6 months! It really is crazy how they were right at the gum line and took this long to cut through. She has had a hard time dealing with the pain.


She rolls faster than we can catch her. She stands for long periods of time. She loves playing in her exersaucer, on the floor with her toys, kisses, watching her big brother act silly, eating, pulling her mama's hair, babbling, smiling (when she is happy), jumping, and hugs! She really dislikes getting dressed, when you don't feed her fast enough (very impatient!), getting undressed, when you take something that she wants away from her, taking naps, when family and friends try to hold her (stranger anxiety!-when will it end?), doing her hair, and when her brother pulls her arms or takes her toys!

She is starting to go blonde.


Kara's hair is crazy! We have to put on a stay in conditioner every night because if we don't, she wakes up with a rat's nest a knotty mess. Her hair not only has three different shades but different lengths too! Pigtails and barrettes are a must to keep the bangs out of her eyes...but not all her hair in the back pulls up into the pigtails.

So sometimes I add an extra one in the back....


We thought we would never see the day when she would accept this...

...but she finally decided that bottles aren't so bad after all.

AND she is able to do this...



I still can't believe 9 months have come and gone already.


Look out ONE YEAR...here I come!

I've been meaning and meaning you tell you, Bobbi, that I LOVE your daughter's eyes. They are so unusual and full of depth. You really captured that with these pictures. And funny you mentioned her hair. I was thinking right before getting to the part you wrote about it, that her hair is everywhere! And it must be hard to control.

She's a DOLL!!!

Happy 9 months!!!

These pictures absolutely slay me. Kara just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Can you make her slow down a bit...if only for me? I don't think she should ever grow past this darling pigtail stage. :)
