A little catch up

Just a few recent pictures I'd like to blog for my memories!

Ellie was acting like such a lady at her 4 year check up and weighed in at 42 pounds, healthy as a horse!

I turned 31 over a fully "snowed in" week!  We were bored to tears, so Ellie and I baked a birthday cake!  She came up with the 3-1 candles.  Sweet girl!

My valentines.  I could just eat them up.  And how old does Ellie look here?  Makes me so sad.

DeDe and Peeeps gave Ellie tickets to Disney Jr. Live for her birthday and I got to tag along!  It was a fun girls afternoon!

I'm sorry, but to me there is NOTHING sweeter than a baby boy dressed like a BABY in his pale blue and knee socks, nothing!

7, 8, and NINE months!

Sweet baby Miller, your momma is a terrbile blogger these days!  But since you are officially NINE months old, I am making myself sit down and do one big update on you!

You finally had your 6 month shots at your 9 month check up!  You have been "fairly" healthy the last month or so and for that I am VERY grateful.  Your sleeping habits are still...well not great, but it is what it is.  We never know from one day or night to the next how that will go.  You are however an EXCELLENT napper!  You now consistently take 2 great naps a day.  I am so thankful for that.  I never thought we would see the day!

You are of course a great eater.  You have tried so many foods!  You love any kind of beans:  green, pinto, black, lima.  You also eat green peas, tomatoes, black olives, carrots, you have tried shredded cheese, cheerios, bread, chicken, rice and any color/type of potato you can imagine!  We have also let you try banana bread, eggs, yogurt and strawberries.  You haven't met a food you didn't like!  I hope you are my great eater.  I am still holding onto that for now:)  You still eat baby food about 3 times a day, and you will eat pretty much anything.  You aren't a huge green veggie lover, but if it is mixed with something, you gobble it up no problem at all.

You are all over the place.  I need about 3 sets of eyes to keep you safe!  I am thinking DANGER is going to be your middle name.  Or maybe you will just be all boy:)  You are crawling all over the place and pulling up on your crib and a few pieces of furniture.  I keep joking that I am going to keep a helmet on your head at all times, but it really isn't a bad idea.  You bump your little head multiple times a day!  You love the coffee table and crawling all over it.

You love your sister, most of the time!  She is such a big helper to me and I really think you two miss each other on days she is gone.  You play very well together and it is so sweet to watch.  Now that you are mobile, however, she is learning that you are into "her" stuff and that might be a problem.  Either way, I am glad you enjoy each others company for the most part.

Here are a few fun facts on our sweet boy!

Diaper: Size 4
Clothes, 9-12 months
21.9 pounds 75 percentile
Head: 47" 95th percentile
28" long 25th percentile

You have 3, almost 4 teeth!  Two on bottom and 1 (almost 2) on top!  Teething is for the birds, by the way...

We love you so much you cute thing!
