Where has time gone?

Calla celebrated her 9 month birthday yesterday! We had a good day just hanging out as a family. I have taken soooo many pictures this weekend b/c Calla has been doing so many fun things! She helped me decorate the Christmas tree on Friday and otherwise has been exploring every inch of the house. She has discovered that the fish tank motor vibrates and that vibration feels great on her teething gums. I bought her a vibrating teether, but she prefers the fish motor.
She has also found out that it is great fun to crawl under the coffee table and end tables. Occasionally she gets hung up on the shelf, but for the most part she maneuvers over them quite well!! It is also very fun to crawl under the end table and then under the piano bench and play with the pedals along the way! She also loves to play with all the CDs and DVDs on the shelf. Thanks for checking in on us and we hope that you enjoy this holiday season!

As promised...

We had a fabulous weekend spending time with my family! Calla really had a good time playing with Burlynn and I think that the fun will only explode from here! We are looking forward to Christmas when we will have two times the fun we did last year. Enjoy these new pictures!

9 month stats

Calla had her 9 month check up today! She won't be 9 months until next weekend, but we went in a bit early. She weighed in at 16 lbs 2 oz and is 26 3/4 inches long. Dr. said she looks great!! We are spending time with my family this weekend so we will have some pics to update early next week! Have a fabulous weekend!

Here is a picture of Calla and Charli from last weekend!

My Mom says that I am growing!

Tonight I saw Calla pull herself up to her feet for the first time! She crawled over her boppy pillow and put her hands on her big musical box toy and then pushed up from her knees to her feet. I am sad, but excited too!
We also got to meet Brenda and Charli today in GI to do some shopping. The girls were so kind to each other! Charli is SO sweet and adorable...I wanted to take her home!
We go to the dr. in a few weeks for her 9 month check-up so we will let you know how tall and what she weighs at that time.

Our Halloween Adventures

As you all know Calla celebrated her first Halloween this week and she was a penguin! On the 30th we went to the hockey game to trick-or-treat and then she wore her costume most of the game. At daycare they had a Halloween party and she got to wear her costume. The kids and Shirley went on a walk down their street to scare people...the kids told me it worked b/c two people got in their cars and left after they went by!!

On Halloween night we stayed home and answered the door and had only a few visits. :( Next year we plan on taking her out and about. This year we decided that her costume did not fit well in the car seat and she really could care less about the whole idea...it was all about the parents!

This morning she started saying "Mamamamamama" and I couldn't be HAPPIER!!!! Chad keeps getting her her face and saying "Dadadadadadadada" but she is not interested!!!
Here are a few more pics to enjoy!

Here she is sitting like such a big girl before going to daycare one morning!

Here are my teeth!!!

What are these things!?! They are not my feet...are they???

What is on my head!?!?!?!?
