9 months!

 Well we definitely had a sweetheart of a valentine for Valentine's day this year!  I wasn't going to really get Jaycee anything but maybe a cute toy for Valentine's day, but when we were in Roden Smith waiting on her prescription last week they had balloon bouqets and Jaycee just loved them so I was like that'll be perfect for her to get to play with some balloons for a couple days.  Well that was definitely a good idea. On Tuesday morning she was so cute; when she got up and I brought her into the living room she saw those balloons setting on the table and couldn't take her eye off of them.  So Justin and I let her have them and she just played and played with them all morning.

The little sweetie still in her V-day pjs.
All dressed up with her balloons. (Have no idea what she is doing in this picture but I love it)

 Just the past couple days, Jaycee has began to pull up on things to her knees.  She was trying to climb on her new fence.  It is time to baby proof the house!
 Today was Jaycee's 9 month birthday and to celebrate she got to go to the doctor for her 9 month checkup.  We didn't do much in Amarillo but go to Sam's, go eat, go to the John Deere house, and come home.  So when we got home we had to take a couple quick pictures to document our birthday.
 She looks like such a big girl in her chair.

At Jaycee's doctor appointment, they said she was going perfect.  She weighs a wopping 15.9 lbs and is 28 inches tall.  If you have been noticing her red/orange nose in all her pictures lately, that is because she has been getting too much carotene lately.  Evidently I have been feeding her too many orange foods.  I never had any idea that such a thing could happen.  I guess she almost turned into an oompa loompa.  I can't help it if my child loves carrots and sweet potatoes.  The doctor checked out her ears while we were there and one is completely cleared up and the other is almost all better.  Now we just have to get over the runny nose and cough which could take a week to a month, but it is no big deal because it is not at all in her chest.  So we had great news at the doctor's today.

At 9 months:
-Army crawl like a soldier in a trench crawling for his life
-Hang out on all fours like we are fixing to crawl like a real baby crawl
-Pulls up to our knees
-Beginning to become a Mama's girl
-Still only says "Da-da"
-Still loves Griengo and loves to play with the other puppies through the glass window
-Goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:30 and sleeps til 8
-Loves Puffs
-Still working at the sippy cup, I don't know when we are ever going to master that
-Fights nursing or even a bottle like crazy, we have to go to her room, turn off the light, make sure no noise is on.  It is miserable.  She is just way too busy.
-Loves baby food though!
-Obsessed with getting shoes, cords, Griengo's water bowl, remotes, anything we are not supposed to get into
-Takes two naps a day.  She is becoming a great napper

I cannot wait for what the next month has in store for us!
