Oh! The Places You'll Go!

Here's a video of our baby girl walking (just a few steps)! Every time we pulled the camera out, she would drop to her knees and crawl. Finally this morning I got it on video. The most steps she has taken so far has been 6! I'm sure by tomorrow she will be sprinting...whew!

She had spaghetti for the first time...and she loved it! That's the good ol Italian blood running through her!


And she got a new chair from Pottery Barn kids! She loves it and climbs all over it like it's a jungle gym!

How Big is Morgan?


SOOOOOO BIG!!





Last weekend, we took Morgan swinging for the first time! It's a hit! She kicked her little legs and was giggling the whole time! Looks like many trips to the park in the future!




How funny is this picture? I was making her lunch, and I looked over and she had grabbed this from the table nearby, and was "reading" it! It was one of those moments I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard! It's right side up too!



When Daddy left for work today, she crawled over to the door and started banging on it, and was babbling away. That's a first! So hurry home from work Dada....I want to play!!

Little Mama

I took Morgan outside today so she could push her stroller up and down the driveway. She had a ball! She would stop every so often and flash her toothless million-watt smile. In the third picture you can see her pushing hard to get up the "hill". And the video at the end is our Little Mama in action! She looks like such a big girl doesn't she?!

Morgan's Top 5

How do you like the new background/header? I made it myself!!! I am really proud of myself. I debated on having someone create a custom blog for me, but the fees are upwards of $65!! So after much research and googling, I found out how to do it...for free!! I am sure I will be changing it alot, depending on my mood :). It is so fun, and very addicting! By the way, if anyone knows how to make the header smaller, could you let me know? I can't figure it out for the life of me!

These are Morgan's top 5 favorite things to do at this moment. I'm sure it will change next week, but I wanted to remember what she was doing at 9 months old! At any given moment, she is doing one of the following:

#5-Swimming in Lily's water bowl



#4-Taking everything out of the diaper bag



#3-Standing





#2-Climbing the Kitchen Island
(and taking every cookbook off the shelf!)




#1-Reading books!
Morgan loves to be read to! It fills my heart with joy to have her crawl in my lap and listen to stories! She especially loves touch and feel books, and books with big pictures in it. Yay, a little bookworm to go with the big bookworm!

9-Month Check Up!

Morgan had her 9 month check up this past week, and thanks be to God, everything looks great! She weighs 14 lbs 10 oz, which puts her in the 5th percentile..she's a teeny tiny little love! Her Dr. was not concerned, as she has always been small, and has been consistient in her weight gain. Now we get to feed her different foods, so that's been fun! It was discovered that this child LOVES yogurt! If she sees the container, she gets very excited and squeals! She likes cheese too (sound like anyone you know?), so thank goodness for that! Not a huge fan of the jarred chicken with rice, but seems to like the chicken mixed with apples.
She has been trying to feed herself with a spoon, here is a short video of it, it's precious!

Also, I have a new design for a onesie! My friend Jessica gave me the idea to use a guitar! I think it turned out adorable, but I need to find a more rock n roll print!

Happy 9 Months Morgie!



This is insane...how can she be 9 months already?? I just HAD her. She has been so FUN! She has her first tooth coming in on the bottom, so she has been miserable all week, poor thing! Runny nose, painful teeth, etc. So that's not been fun for her. She has been clapping like crazy, but I haven't gotten in on video yet. AND she can stand without holding on to anything. She does this for about a minute, but she hasn't quite figured out what to do next. I'm not in a hurry for her to walk! I want to hold her in my arms forever!
Morgie, Mommy and Daddy love you so much and we are loving the personality we see coming through! A feisty and spunky,yet sweet and loving little girl!
I am so thankful to God for blessing us with her. I'm constantly in awe of her and that she's ours. 9 months later, it still amazes me.
Love you Sweet Girl!
