9 Months Old!

I know I say this every month BUT oh my goodness I just can't believe how fast she is growing and changing! Charly is such a sweetheart and I'm so grateful I'm able to stay home and experience her life with her.

  • She is pointing at things and she gets really excited. There is a calendar in the kitchen that has pictures of dogs and she has started to point to the calendar and say "doggy." There are pictures of some of her cousins in the kitchen as well and she points to them and starts giggling. he he She also can point out the picture Jesus on the fridge :)
  • She is still scooting around to everywhere she needs to go- she's quick and pretty good at this little scoot! She CAN crawl BUT prefers to scoot...which has given her the new nickname "scooter"
  • When she gets really excited she wrinkles her nose and pushes her lips out and breathes in and out really fast through her nose
  • She takes 2 awesome naps!
  • I have yet to find something that she DOESN'T like to eat
  • When its time to get in the tub I put her towel over my shoulder and she gets so excited and buries her face into the towel
  • When gar takes her downstairs she grabs onto his neck for life because he jumps up and down and all over the place
  • She says "mama" and "Dada"
  • Loves going jogging with me in her stroller
  • Loves to "swim" and splash around in the water
Here are some pictures grama Joey took when she was 8 months old :)

Happy 4th 2011

When Gar was wake boarding she got SO excited and started waving to him saying "dada" . When we would get going fast on the boat she started doing happy screams and was trying to catch the the wind! She did so good and had a lot of fun. We were able to wake board and gar did some knee boarding as well. It was a great day on the lake!

 Later that night we had dinner with the Caldwells and then went to John and Lors for some fireworks! I would have to say that it has been a great 4th!

We have been having so much fun this summer so far. Charly has loved going to the pool and splashing around. A couple of days ago I took her down to Grandma and Grandpa Tipton's irrigation water to play in. She was having fun splashing around and watching her cousins run around in the water.

For our anniversary we down to St. George for the weekend to see the Little Mermaid. I love the atmosphere at the Tuachan and the play was so cute, we had a lot of fun watching it together. Also while we were in St. George we went shopping, bowling, and saw the move "17 Miracles" but one of the most amazing things we did was sleep in and take a nap. Ha ha things you don't get to do when you have a kids. We loved the movie 17 miracles. It made us realize how blessed we are and it even humbled us a lot, we would recommend to anyone. I love Garett so much and it was so nice to be able to spend some alone time with him. He's  my sweetheart and best friend.
