On the 10th Day of Christmas...

...Grace turned 9 months old.

Month 8 was a big month for her milestone wise.

  • She started scooting/army crawling. 
  • She can sit from laying down.  It is her new favorite thing. She can't go down for a nap without sitting in her crib and playing for awhile and immediately when she wakes up she must sit.  
  • She pulls up on furniture now, so we had to lower the crib.  I think we lowered the crib only a couple of days before she pulled up for the first time.

  • She took her first long car ride to Houston for Thanksgiving  Other than not really napping she was great.  She is a seasoned flier but hasn't ever had to drive any where longer than about 1hr 45 mins.  Lets hope the flight to Michigan on Wednesday with a layover in Milwaukee goes as well as the rest of her flights.

  • Grace now weighs 18lbs 8 oz and is 28 inches long.  25-50% for weight and 75% for height - tall skinny baby(strangely enough though the onesie she is wearing in the pictures is a 3-6 months).  Her head is still at the top of the charts.  

  • 6th day of Christmas outfits.  If you are wondering - YES!  I did get a new camera.  I got a Canon T1i for an early Christmas present.  I am still learning though so bear with me as I figure it out.  This picture is a bit over exposed.

  • Grace's final milestone of the month was getting her first tooth.  If you look closely at the bottom you can see it.

Santa Baby

On Saturday, we went to our neighborhood 'Holiday on the Plaza'.  There were carnival games, a snow mound, face painting, carriage rides and most importantly Santa!  There were supposed to be live reindeer but we never saw those.  It was actually much chillier than we had anticipated so we didn't stay long.   We invited the Brasseaux's to go with us and then we all headed out to Zea's for dinner.  A bit of fun for all.

Grace was less than impressed with Santa though.  We are planning to do a more formal trip to see Santa again though.  It was a bit difficult getting a good picture this time.

I have to take a better picture of this outfit.  It was adorable.
