Look Mom, No Hands!

Now that she's getting her balance, I suppose walking is only days away. And I'm just not quite sure how I feel about that.

I'm a little behind, but on Valentine's Day weekend my sister and I left the boys behind and braved the 3 1/2 hour trip (well, Mandy got us there in 3!) to OK with all the girls in tow for our mom's birthday. The fun part was that we didn't tell my mom we were coming. My dad was in on it, but my mom had no clue. We showed up to her classroom right as the kids were getting out of school for the day and SURPRISE! Seeing her reaction really was priceless. We spent the rest of the weekend with my parents and had a wonderful time!

Wild Child

The phrase, "All Boy" comes to my mind quite a bit these days as I watch Scarlett get into everything. The other day she was laughing at me when I was "getting" her, and she ran smack dab into a chair and bumped her forehead pretty good. But she didn't skip a beat, and she most certainly did not cry, not my fearless little boy girl! Instead, she immediately proceeded to climb on top of her walker with the high hopes of getting on top of the ottoman. Meanwhile, the entire time, she has her "daddy" doll in her mouth! (She loves this little soft doll that came with her Pottery Barn doll house. She especially loves to keep him in her mouth as she goes about playing with other toys.) Finally, she gave up and decided to grab the camera out of my hands. Needless to say, she keeps me very busy all day. But of course, I love every minute of it.

10 Months Old

Scarlett turned 10 months old on Monday. It is mind boggling to me that she has reached "almost a year" status. Our little baby is becoming a toddler before our eyes! She's very mobile right now crawling and walking around the living room while holding on to the ottoman and couches. She can walk very good behind her little walker too. I think she'll be walking at her first birthday party!

Still just two little teeth!

Trouble, trouble.
She crawls to the pantry then pulls up;
it's just her size in there.

Here she is behind her little walker;
such a GREAT toy!

My mom got her this little snack container.
She can reach in and grab a little puff all by herself!

Music time!

She loves to open her drawers
then throw everything out of them.
Fun times for mom!

Sweet smile

Waking up from nap time!

Happy 10 months little sweetie!

Time Flies

I can't believe she's doing things like this

and this,

when it seems like she should still be here

or here

or doing this

or this

So I'm trying to soak it all in,

remember it all,

and be thankful she's healthy,

and happy,

and perfect to us in every way.
