Double Digits

Ten Months, Baby! Isn't she huge?
Trying to crawl off of the chair of course...

This is what her face looked like when she saw a dog
on TV during our shoot.
She also started making her "woof" sound.

Of course she had to crawl over and check out the clip of
Beverly Hills Chihuahua.

This is her removing the hat that was planned f
or this months photo shoot.
I knew it wouldn't last long so I also gave her a ponytail. Yeah!

This adorable hat was made by Felicity's Great Grandma Terry. She actually wears it when she's in a better mood. Time for a nap, child?
Felicity is 10 months old and growing like a weed. Or a zucchini, whichever grows faster. She does so many new things now! She knows how to clap and does it all of the time. It is her first and best trick so far. If you say the word clap she will usually do it. You don't even have to do it yourself to show her! And she claps when people clap on TV. She is also starting to be interested in dogs. She makes a "woof" sound when she sees a dog. It's pretty cute. My least favorite thing is that lately she REFUSES to let someone change her diaper. She flips over and tries to crawl away. This new behavior led to the messiest poop catastrophe so far. You wouldn't think it would be that hard to physically challenge this sweet little girl and get the diaper changed, but she is strong and stubborn! She also hates getting into her car seat lately. Also not fun. Felicity has a new tooth on top so she is on her way to more chewing which I'm sure she's happy about. Yeah Felicity you are growing up so fast! (clapping...)

It's all happening at the zoo...

This was the first picture Kurt saw of our trip to the Zoo and of course he had to make fun of both Felicity and I. What can I say, my hair is in a pony and Felicity is a silly girl. At this point her head was getting wobbly and she was starting to fall asleep.
My little blue eyed babe-looks like she doesn't belong to me...
She loved the "big" animals and made lots of excited noises throughout the day.
She also was bouncing and trying to "dance" in her carrier.

Kurt's sister Christie and Addison. As far as being great friends to us-they sure measure up.
Uncle Seth and uncle Bryan took "the babies" on the carousel.
Felicity was riding a panda and she had lots of fun!
I don't know what little critter Felicity was checking out here-but I loved putting her down and letting her check things out. We had lots of fun at the zoo and it really blew me away how big she is getting. I can't believe I have a child big enough to sincerely enjoy animals and going on "a ride". Thanks for the invite Radmalls-we had a great day!

Vroom Vroom. . .

Felicity would like to thank Sam for lending her his special toy which she now LOVES. Somebody stop her, she is growing up too fast!

Half Way to Nursery

Nine months old and she needs a prop to hold still!
Good One Baby.
You've got to look at these 3 pictures in reverse order...
Victory!
I took my hat off mom. You don't control me!
Oh, you think this gray and pinky purple thing is cute? Too Bad!
She looks like a little baker in this picture.
Using the "6" upside down. We are resourceful... and I couldnt find the colored pencils.


Her Shaggy "do"

Well-Felicity is 9 months old (9 and 1/2 now). She is a crazy girl. She eats garlic (see below), is starting to do a bouncy dance move, is getting a mullet and MIGHT understand what Da-Da means. She is starting to love other babies and kids and always wants to grab them and clobber them (out of love). She loves fresh peaches which means she understands why her mom starts singing, "It's the most wonderful time of the year" when she sees a beautiful box of red havens. She is too wiggly to make it through a church meeting and doesn't understand "all gone" yet. She is in the 9th percentile for weight and 13th for height so people tell me that she is so "tiny". She is a sweetie and we love her even though she pulls off her darling hats and bows.

Mad Jar Opening Skills

Bad Breath Baby
I realized that Felicity had been quiet over by the kitchen for a while today and when I went to her I saw her eating chunks of garlic from a jar similar to the one above (I wish I lived by Trader Joes). I had put the groceries on the floor earlier and she had found this jar of garlic I just bought, somehow opened it and was going to town. She had a good amount of garlic in her mouth and stuck to her face and hands. The thing that cracked me up was that she was mad when I took her away from it. Silly baby. Does she love to eat or what? Maybe it will keep the boys away. . .
