9 months of Sailyr

My little bug is already 9 months old! She is doing so well. She crawls everywhere and pulls herself up on everything! She started standing up in her crib so she hasn't been sleeping as well as she usually does. I think that she stands up and doesn't know how to lay back down. I guess she will learn how to do that soon enough. She got her first tooth last week. It is so cute and so sharp! She says all kinds of things like dada, nana and hi, but she mostly just jibber-jabbers. She always wants everything Skylar has and she loves to watch her big sister. Sailyr thinks Skylar is hilarious! She always has the cutest smile, not just a little grin but an ear to ear, wide open smile! She has the absolute funniest laugh also! She is still a mommy's girl but is learning to like her dad better every day! It is so fun to see how different her personality is from Skylar's. She is such a little tenderheart. She gets nervous if a man with a beard looks at her or talks to her. She startles easily and cries at the drop of a hat. However, she can really hold her own when it comes to keeping a toy she wants!
Last week at her well child visit to the doctor, she weighed 20 lbs 1oz and was 27 inches long. She has slimmed down to the 75%! (She once was in the 97%!)
We love her so much and she is such a great addition to our family!

Long time coming!

Okay, I finally have a minute to catch up on my blog. We have had a crazy couple of weeks! At the first of the month, Travis and I went with his family to California for the weekend. We had a lot of fun and it was a nice break away from our kids! Everyone else stayed for a whole week but we just went for a few days which was plenty of time away from the girls! I was really missing them!

When we got home, I had to make up the days that I had missed at work which took up the whole rest of the week. Then my girls got sick. They both had low fevers and yucky noses so after taking them to the doctor they were on the mend.
Skylar and I went to see Disney on Ice with my friend Tammi and her little girl Kyanne. We had great seats and it was a lot of fun. I was worried about Skylar not wanting to watch the whole thing but she did great!

Next we had to get our taxes done. It is a huge job to get everything ready to go for that appointment. Usually I am a lot more organized with my receipts and paperwork than I was this year. I finally got it done! Until next year...

Mastering her mobility

After telling everybody for weeks that Sailyr is sooooo close to crawling, she finally is making progress. She has been up on all fours rocking back and forth for a while now, so I thought she would do it any day. But she has finally decided that she can do the "army crawl" and get where she needs to go. Yesterday she apparently wanted to see what was at the bottom of the stairs so off she went right over the edge! It happened so fast! After a thorough head-to-toe check we realized that she was okay and I put our "gate" up which is actually a dining room chair turned on its side. Now we have to keep an eagle eye on her to keep her out of trouble. I think that my life just got a little bit more complicated!

Kung Fu

After recently watching Kung Fu Panda (over the span of two days. Yep that's how long it takes to watch a movie with a 20-month old.) I saw this on YouTube and thought it was hilarious!
