9 Months

I have now almost officially had Mollie out of my belly as long as she was in...  She was born when I was 39 wks and 5 days prego and tomorrow (the 17th) she will be 39 weeks and 5 days old!  Just a little fun fact.

But at this moment she is 9 months.....already....

I'm finding it harder and harder to get smiles out of this girl while taking pictures.  She smiles all day but the moment I whip out the camera or phone she stops smiling and starts being more curious and wants to grab everything (sticky fingers).  So I take what I can get.  At least this time we had more with her eyes open instead of shut.

I really don't know what all to say.  I feel like I repeat myself all the time with how amazing and fun she is and how much I love her.  All of that is still the same.

I'm not sure of her 9 month stats.  She has an appt. on the 25th so we will get the info then.  The last time I weighed her she was about 15.4lbs.  Still petite but healthy.  She is a good eater.  She eats breakfast like a champ, lunch is good somedays and not so good others, and for dinner she is usually good.  

Still no Teeth!  Every time I think she is teething nothing comes from it.  Just last week we thought for sure she was but I think she just had a little cold, which she got from me, cause there are still no teeth.  Oh well they will come when they come.

She is crawling, well mostly army crawling but getting better about regular crawling, and lately has been perfecting her tummy, to crawl, to sitting position. She does this all the time and its so cute to watch her stop whatever she is doing and practice it.  But when she sees something she wants she goes for it and there is no stopping her.

So my first real "bad mother" moment happened....she fell off the couch!  Yep flat onto her back, knocked the wind right out of her.  I felt wonderful....not!  I knew it was going to happen one day cause I am dumb and change her diaper on the couch and will leave real quick to wash my hands before I get her fresh diaper put on.  So I did this the other day and sure enough she rolled right off onto the floor as I was running to catch her.  Yep not so proud of that one.  Thankfully I know I'm not the only one this has happend to.

This last picture cracks me up.  Although it looks like she is crying I actually caught her right in the middle of a big sneeze.  Aaaaachooooo!!

Easter is up there with my top favorite holiday's.  At first we were not really going to do anything for Easter, we both feel Mollie is to young to really know what's going on with Holidays anyway, but I made the decision to change that and start celebrating.

So I took it upon myself to be the Easter Bunny this yr.  Even Lorin was surprised to wake up and find an Easter basket for him (secretly I think he LOVED it).

I loaded Mollie's basket with books, plastic eggs (for decoration purposes), bubbles and some new PJ's.  She also got two new outfits one of which was her Easter outfit.  Lorin and I both got new movies and candy.  Peanut M&M's for me...YUM!

Mollie had fun playing with the eggs, and bubbles.  But the thing she loved the most was the grass...of course....  Here is my little bunny:

And then of course our family:

Hope you all had a "hoppy" Easter  :)
