9 months

Another month has whizzed by and our princess is now 9 months old. She is crawling everywhere and pulling up too. She is a busy little lady and is already so active. She adores her brother (when he's not trying to ride her like a horse, that is) and laughs at him all the time. She loves her mommy (okay, I'm a bit biased) and loves for mommy to carry her around all day long. She is filling out size 12 month clothes and looks adorable in all her outfits. She is babbling and saying 'bababa' and 'dadadada'. She thinks keys are the perfect teether although mommy begs to differ.

We still can't believe she's ours. Our hearts are overjoyed.
Happy 9 months, baby girl. We love you.

a perfect day for a picnic.

The weather has been so beautiful lately. I love that it's sunny and warm, but not too hot yet. We joined Aunt Steph and Cousin Colby for a picnic lunch. The boys ran all over the place and we took turns chasing after them. Coy loves to play golf and must bring his golf club and ball everywhere we go. Cyd loved sunbathing and tried to eat a few leaves while she was at it. They both came home and took a long afternoon nap. ;)

Colby and Cydney are only 6 months apart

Guess who decided they were big enough to do this?

Yep, yep...this crazy girl. After I caught her like this, we lowered her mattress. She now thinks her crib is a play pen. She has the best time talking to her sleep sheep and just giggles and laughs. I don't remember giving her permission to grow up?

She's my doll. At the grocery store today, a woman came up to me and said, "oh she's cute....(pause)...they're always cute when they're fat." I just smiled and replied, "yep, they sure are." I know what she meant and wasn't offended by any means. I thought it was pretty funny, actually. I usually get that she's "plump" "round" or "healthy". She's absolutely perfect.

Easter was great for us. We are really blessed to have both sides of our immediate family within 10 minutes of each other. We spent the morning with the Kolkhorst side, then finished up at my parents. We did Easter egg hunts on both sides...Coy wasn't quite feeling it this year. He was more interested in throwing balls and eggs filled with candy into his Grandparents's pools.

He was feeling a bit under the weather that day {he had horrible allergies that were causing him to wheeze badly} and it always makes me worry. Monday we headed to the pediatrician and he was started on a inhaler and steroid. He's doing much better, thank goodness.

In my opinion, these pictures aren't good, but the kids looked adorable in their Easter clothes so I'll post them. ;)

Does it get any cuter? Coy and Ryder with Grandma K.... With Ryder and Eli... I loved, loved her in this dress. Although, I do not have one good picture of her in it. The kiddos with my mom, Grandma C. This was right before we went home and to bed. Can't you tell??

And, we did not even attempt a group cousin shot on my side...there are 7 (Coy is the oldest, believe it or not) soon to be 8. That will be mission impossible for a good 10 years. ;)

My computer has been throwing a tantrum lately. I literally couldn't get it to turn on for 4 days. And, if I move it one centimeter, it turns off again. I have no idea what's wrong. I'm ready for a new one.

I know, this was a bunch of random, useless info. I'm tired. Good night!
