9 months (a little late)

It's amazing how fast my little girl is developing. I mean, it was amazing when she was tiny and held that head up and pushed off the floor for the first time, but I just can't get over how fast everything happens. 3 weeks ago when we were up in Dallas, she wasn't even crawling. 3 weeks ago tomorrow she crawled for the first time. She went from barely crawling, and then within like 4 days she crawls, pulls up on everything and is walking around the ottoman, and will walk everywhere if she can hold your fingers.

At her 9 month checkup, she was 20 pounds, 3 ounces, 74% in weight.
29 inches, 90% still in heigh.
17.25 inches head - 45%.

She is still on the Super Baby Food diet, and loving it. She eats everything. Now that she is 9 months she can have the 'high protein' super porridge, which she likes. Ground up brown rice, and lentils or green split peas, or other grains/beans. I can't believe how easy it is to make, instead of using those flaky processed 'infant' cereals (and CHEAP!). She has had avocados, bananas, apples, pears, peaches, mangos, papaya, plums, kiwi (fave!), asparagus, green beans, broccoli, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, kale, yogurt, squash, etc. She is a great eater, and an even better sleeper. She has really settled well into a schedule, taking 2 naps a day, usually 1.5 hours long each (sometimes 2 hours in the afternoon). She goes to bed between 7-7:30 and wakes up around 7. Tonight however we are going to the Rockets game (we sit right behind the Rocket's bench) so look for us on tv!! Next Monday we are going to the Astros opener (a yearly tradition), we are super excited. I will post a link to her 9 month photos once JC Penney emails them to me, they are PRECIOUS! God Bless all, keep in touch!

Houston Zoo and Angry Easter Bunny!

Hi! Our playgroup visited the zoo yesterday, and we had a great time. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and all the kids had fun seeing all the animals and running around (the ones that can run). You can click here to see the set on flickr. Then, this morning I was pulling out some 12 month clothes, to see what all we have for the summer, and I came across this dog costume that had been donated by one of my mom's friends. Well, I put it on Cara, along with the bunny ears I bought her, and tried to get a cute shot. Out of 37, I think I got one or 2, max! Anyways, thought you'd like to see what fun it is sometimes torturing your daughter into taking pictures!

Let the crawling (and babyproofing) begin

We had a great time up in Dallas this weekend visiting Nathan, Shannon and Garrett, and Justin and Ashley for Justin's 30th birthday party! I have uploaded new pictures to flickr and 2 web videos to dropshots.

No, while we were there, Cara made the slightest move to crawl one day, but then didn't do it again. Well, this morning, I caught her doing it, with much coaxing of course. However, she usually takes a few moves forward, then goes backwards to sit down! Anyways, they are online if you'd like to see them. You can click here or on the dropshots sidebar.
