9 Months Old!

Well, we just got back from the doctor's, and Annie is sleeping off her shot pain upstairs in her crib. She's a healthy, petite princess!

weight: 16 lbs. 8 oz. (10th percentile)
height: 27 in

The next time we go in she'll be one year old!! I can't believe it. The last few days Annie's been feeling a little under the weather with another tooth coming in on top. It's been kind of sad. :-( But we sort of got through the worst part on Monday, and today she's back to her usual self. I woke up to the sounds of her singing (wow, she reaches some high notes!) and "ba-ba"-ing in her crib. I also heard her mobile playing, which always means that she's standing up and pulling on it to make the song play. It's a wonderful way to wake up, especially when I remember the many mornings and middle-of-the-nights when I'd wake up to her newborn screams. :) Now she just stands there and sings and talks to herself. It's really cute.

So the doctor said she'll probably remain in the low weight range for a while, since she's such an active kid. And because she's still breastfeeding. But it's not a cause for concern.

We've been having some great thunderstorms here lately! We woke around 2:30 last night to HUGE thunderclaps and lightning that really felt like it was in our bedroom. I LOVE thunderstorms!

Well, I'm off to take Memphis to the park!

Who looks like they've aged the most over the past nine months? Annie or Daddy? Annie looks cuter. Daddy looks tired.

Okay. Lemme make this point. Looking back at the history of this blog, I realize I've become more like my father than I'm comfortable with. Our entire family would ridicule Pops for always wearing the same shirt for every occasion. This select shirt would change periodically, but there was always one shirt he'd wear. If you look at all of my pictures in this blog you will realize that I wear the same shirt 80-90% of the time. What can I say? I like the way I look in my red Aeropostale shirt.

ha ha that's funny! Jonathan used to wear the same orange shirt all the time; but I threw it away when we moved. It is good to hear from you guys. We wondered what happened to you! =)
