Sadie's 9 months

Ugh, my heart has a hard time letting those words slip out of my mouth!

It simply cannot be true that she is already 9 months.
As much as I am enjoying all of the wonderful things that come with babies growing, I still can't believe our baby will soon be one!

So, here are the stats: 16 lbs 14 oz and 27.5 inches long
She is now walking while only holding one hand for support, crawling around (still a silly crawl if you ask me!) and smiling all of the time. She squeals and jumps if she gets a peak at her daddy or brothers...they thrill her to pieces. She still does not have one single tooth! It melts my heart to see that gummy grin!
Cooper has figured out that he can carry her. It's quite hilarious and precious at the same time! Given the last post on caution, you might be surprised we let him do it. But you should see him. He is so careful and when he sets her down he just sits himself so that she sits on him.

Owen is too nervous to carry her so he pulls on her legs to get her to move. We try and catch him doing this so that we can help him understand why this isn't a good idea. Poor thing, had she not been wearing diapers she'd have quite the rug burn on her bum. She certainly is given enough attention to last a lifetime!
We had a play date with Holden this week and it was a blast!

She is really starting to look like a little Miss! She is so adorable her lips are gorgeous! We should do a play date... I found out about the twilight swim at pelican bay where my oldest son works for the summer, anyways 5-8 infants free well if they aren't walking you could carry little miss lol, boys are only $3 and Aaron wore his life jacket, the whole time made me feel safe, we are going to go tommrow night with Miss Ashlein.

Um okay - seeing Sadie in Ragon's clothes makes me sad. It makes me realize how quick she has grown up. i mean - it was just last summer that Ragon wore that - and now - next year they will be running around playing dolls together. Trust me - i never thought Ragon would be in to "bebe dols" as she calls them. And now she puts at least 8 or 9 in her stroller and pushes them around the house!

SWEETNESS! I cannot believe 9 months have come and gone. I forgot to tell you I ran into your parents on Tuesday night in Tulsa at the Riverwalk.....I'm sure they thought I was crazy but I just couldn't resist saying Hi to them! Isn't it funny how you feel like you know someone thru blogs when you really don't :)
