Where's Nonnie?

I LOVE eating "big people" food! Spaghetti is my favorite so far. I love the feel of the noodles between my fingers! And I like getting dirty while eating. Actually, my absolute favorite food is strawberries and blueberries. Momma says that I may turn into a blueberry!! I don't think that is possible, but she's got me thinking now!!!
Where's Nonnie? We're at her house but she's not here. Maybe she's outside!
Oh well. I guess I will just play on the floor while I wait for her. I love crawling around, but it's kinda getting boring now. I've been crawling for 3 months now and I'm a pro at it, so I'm ready to move on to more challenging things, like walking!!!!

9 months old!

I'm 9 months old now! I had tons of fun visiting my Boppy and Papa in Chicago! My mommy is still trying to figure out how to put my Boppy's pictures on here, so hopefully she'll get it working so you can see how much fun I had with my cousins! I had to go to the doctors today for my 9 month check-up! I was having such a good day until then. I really like my doctor, but I DON'T like her nurse who comes in every time at the end to give me shots in my leg. I hate that part. But I weigh 19 pounds now and 28.5 inches. I'm getting bigger and stronger every day. Oh, I can also say "baba" and "mama" now and I can eat "big people" food. I haven't had too much of it yet, but the little stuff I got a taste of I loved. I also LOVED watching firecrackers on the 4th of July. I laughed and laughed at the sky when it changed colors. Anyways, I will try to give momma some time during the day to figure out how to show you my Chicago pictures!

Just a quick update from Chicago

Well, this is the first time I am posting with NO picture....It seems like a crime! haha. But Dave, Kate and I are all in Chicago visiting my family. Kate and I have been here since June 26th and Dave came up here on July 3rd. We will be leaving July 12th to go back to the ridiculous heat called TEXAS! We are soooo enjoying our time up here with the fam. The weather is absolutely perfect. It makes us want to live up here simply for that reason! Dave has gotten in some golfing while we've been here and he has become addicted to how much more pleasant it is to be outdoors in weather like Chicago.

Kate has been the center of attention, of course. She just turned 9 months old two days ago. A picture will be following once we're back home! She is soooo close to walking. She has been standing by herself for a few seconds while we've been here. My family can't believe how advanced she is in her motor and verbal skills. She looks like a little peanut, however, she is acting like she is a 1 year old. SO SAD!!! At least for momma! I guess I just can't keep her my baby forever! She loves to climb on anyything and everything. My mom is just spoiling her like rotten. I am a little scared to transition back home where it will be just her and me again. Kate loves playing with her older cousins: Hana (8yo), Hunter (7yo), and Heidi (2yo). The newest "trick" Kate has learned while we've been here is to KISS on demand!!! It is the cutest thing EVER!!! If you ask her for a kiss, she will lean into your mouth and plant a BIG, SLOPPY, WET lick/kiss!!! It makes me melt every time!!! She seems to be such a cuddler and tender-hearted little girl.

Anyways, once I get back to TEXAS, I will post some fun pictures of our trip to Chicago. I even had an old college roommate from Texas meet us up here in Chicago with her husband because they were in town for a wedding. It was soooo nice to see her again. And it was my first time meeting her wonderful husband and her first time meeting Kate. We had a really nice visit. Thanks Abigail!!!
