Ooooh CD!

Fun Dinasour

Christmas is Almost here!

I just cannot wait! Stella is the best present I could ever ask for! She is so fantastic! She loves to give you her pacifier, she will even try to but it in your mouth for you! I have gotten 3 videos up! I will post those too! I have almost made all my Christmas gifts. Just a few more left to make! I am sure I will be working till the last minute!

Stella should have her TWO FRONT TEETH by Christmas! Her second bottom front tooth is on it's way! Whoo hoo! I always think of things I want to blog, and then I can never remember! Poo!

9 Month Appointment

Stella had her 9 month pediatrician appointment this morning! Her iron levels were good, they did her first finger prick. She weighs 19 lbs. 7 oz. and she is 28 3/4 inches long. She is getting really tall! She is so cute, she absolutely loves the dinasour walker that Pawpaw bought her! She walks so good with it! I will get some video of that soon!

Little Tease!

Stella thinks she is so funny! She used to put her arms out to be picked up when I would say "Come Here". Well, now when I say "Come Here" she just sits there with her arms down and laughs. Wow, what am I in for when she gets older!!?!?!?!

Oh, and I have forgotten to add two of her accomplishments! She has been clapping for a little over a month now! She has been waving for quite a while too. And her daddy taught her how to give "five". She is so awesome!

Well, we celebrated Stella's 9 month b-day by taking a trip to see Santa & Mrs. Claus. That was something Uncle Dave's Lyons Club had. It didn't go very well. But you can't really tell from the first photo. Then I tried again, to see if she was ok with Mrs. Claus....but no dice!

Obviously I could not be satisfied with these as her first photos with Santa. So, we made a trip out on Sunday to find a good mall Santa. That was almost a fail when I saw how much they charged! Cheap package is $20 and you get 2 5x7s. We started at St. Matthews, but their Santa wasn't very authentic. So, we tried Bass Pro Shop since their Santa is free. But the line there was really long. Then we went to Jefferson Mall, and Santa was at lunch for another 45 minutes. But I decided we would wait, and it paid off! I was very happy with the Santa, and he did a good job keeping Stella from freaking out! Finally got my perfect Santa photo!! :)

My Astounding Daughter

Stella is the most wonderful thing I have ever done. She is a gorgeous, smart, funny & happy baby. I cannot believe she will be 9 months old on Saturday!! She is very close to standing on her own, but not quite! She loves to dance! I really have to get a video of her dancing soon. She did have her first accident where she bled last night. It was awful, but it always is when she gets hurt or is very sick. I am not sure what happened, she was laying on me and I was flat on the floor. She was crawling forward off of me, and somehow smacked her face on the floor. She was screaming bloody murder. I kept looking at her face, and it looked fine but she didn't calm down. Then I saw the blood coming out of her mouth. I freaked, but some how kept it together pretty well! I got a wet rag, but couldn't tell where it was coming from. We got a flash light, and saw that the little piece of skin that connects her top lip to her gum had somehow gotten split. Poor thing! She calmed down once she had a paci, and it stopped bleeding pretty fast!
I would also like to explain how freaking amazing it is when I pick her up and she squeezes me. To have my love reciprocated by her is such an incredible feeling. Especially when she wakes up in the morning and I go to pick her up out of the crib. She makes this excited sound and then just hugs me. I love that little girl to pieces!
Tonight she couldn't decide which paci she wanted to use. So she would spit one out, put another one in. It was so funny. I'll post the video.

P.S. Still no teeth, I officially quit guessing when they are coming in. I will let you know when she actually has some.
