9 Months already?!

Daci turned nine months on the 21st of this month. She has now been alive as long as she was in my stomach! How crazy is that? On the one hand it feels like these nine months have flown and on the other I can't remember life without her, it feels like she has been with us forever!

She went to the Dr's today. She is in the 91st percentile for height at 29 inches long! Wow, she is tall! She has slimmed down a bit and is now in the 59th percentile for weight at 19 lbs 4 ounces.

She still has hardly any hair....except for her mullet in the back. Her back hair seems to be the only part of her head that grows! She points at everything and still likes to wave, but only when she feels like. She refuses to wave when we actually want her to :) Sometimes she thinks she can stand and walk all by herself and she will let go of the couch and turn to us to walk and then topple over. Silly girl :)

Our little cheese ball

Playing near the snow (not in it of course). Daci loves to be outside. She could care less how cold it is as long as she can play out there :)

We put Sam (Rick's bro) into the MTC two weeks ago. This is he and Daci just thirty minutes before he left. Daci loves Sam. She especially loved playing peek a boo with him and she loved it when he played the guitar and sang to her.

She is so full of fun and I swear she has a bigger mouth than any baby I have ever seen. She can fit ANYTHING in there! She got her third tooth today actually, she is opening her mouth up wide enough for you to see it except for it is just barely poking through so it might not be noticeable.

She loves to pull herself to standing and walk along the furniture. Can you tell how proud of herself she is?

She loves playing peek a boo!

Rick's Birthday

We had a nice dinner with Rick's family for his birthday. His mom made her traditional Christmas Eve dinner since Rick's brother, Sam, was going into the MTC the next day and was going to miss Christmas Eve. It turned out perfect because the ham with cherry sauce dinner is Rick's favorite meal too!

Rick with Daci and her balloon. When I went to the store to pick up balloons they gave Daci a free white one and she wouldn't let it go the rest of the day!

Rick, Daci and I (and the balloon) before dinner.

Daci all ready to eat....oh yeah and she had to have the balloon nearby so we tied it to her high chair :)

He got a Best Buy gift card from Carly and Micah...his favorite place!

He got a bag full of all his favorite treats from me

I made him his favorite oreo cookies

He got new jeans and a shirt too

Carly made him a nice birthday cake. Of course I didn't get any but I hear it was amazing!

Halloween Fun with the Chicken

Daci was an adorable little chicken for Halloween and Rick and I dressed up as her farmers :) Rick's costume was much more realistic, he worked on a farm last summer so he had the whole watering boots going on and my Grandpa lent him overalls and a real farmer hat. I ended up looking more like a cowgirl, but you get the gist of it right?

Daci LOVED her costume and she LOVED her pumpkin! We had fun taking her around to a few family and friend's houses to show her off. She definitely knew she was cute :)
