Nine Months Old

You are nine months old but it feels like you are going on a year! You are acting so much older and it kinda makes momma sad. You are slowly going from baby to toddler! We love to watch you grow and to see your little personality blossom. You are so much fun right now and such a busy bee!! You aren't scared to venture outside the living room alone now and love to explore. Usually you head to Khloe's food bowl, anywhere momma or dadda may be or along the fireplace. You are such a little sweetheart and we can't get enough of you! 

*You weigh 17 pounds (35th percentile) and are 28 1/4 inches tall (75th percentile)
*Eating 8 ounces in the morning and bedtime and 6 ounces and 1.5 jars of baby food for lunch and supper.
*Recently moved to size 3 diapers
*Wearing 6-9 month clothes 
*Your favorite toys are your activity table, cook and play potsy, opening/closing books and balls.
 *You love to watch Khloe and you think she is pretty funny (like when she crunches on your puffs or sneezes). You love to be held and love to look around when we go places. You can say momma, dadda, baba (rare but you have said it) and ba (ball). You love to clap your hands and make this cute scrunched sniffing face:) 

Standing up is what you love to do

More standing/cruising

Just love that beanie on you! 

It's so cute when you crawl around with your towel over your head after your bath! 

Play date with Keaton and another Harper! It was the cutest thing to see you three play! 

All of you wanted the same toy. I love how you are all the same height:)

Eating your first fudge bar! Nana and gepa remeber when they gave mom her first fudge bar and had to be there when you had your first taste.

Trying to help with the laundry but you didn't realize mom was just trying to keep you occupied. lol

I love my girl!!

So sweet

At your nine month well check. You were a little shy with your doctor at first and didn't want to leave mommas side.

Nine month photo shoot are off and done with your pictures:)

This year we had so much fun on Halloween! Maybe it was because we had our sweet girl to enjoy it with:) I'm not into the ghosts and gobblins part really but do love making Halloween fun. I love theme costumes and so this year Harper was an elephant, Jarod was a safari guide and I was the tourist! It was something easy we could put together without spending a lot. Whenever I was searching costumes I couldn't resist the big ears on the elephant costume. It was comfy enough for Harper and I knew it would keep her warm. Keeping her warm was important this year since the temperatures dropped into the 30's!!! I don't think I ever remember it being that cold on Halloween. We still went trick or treating around the neighborhood but instead of walking just drove. We were able to spend some time with family, get candy (only year we will be able to eat it all. lol) and watch Harper's reactions on her First Halloween!

 Getting ready to carve pumpkins!

Ready to get messy and then I thought we better change;)

Harper loved playing in the goo and she really didn't get that messy.

Making memories
