Cottage Cheese Fit of '09

Tonight E got her first taste of cottage cheese. I didn't know if she would like it or not due to the texture, but happily she loved it. Not so happily, when I told her it was all gone, she FREAKED out. Her fit was reminiscent of a child going through the Terrible 2s.

There was rolling around on the floor.

Kicking. Notice the cottage cheese still in her mouth. She didn't even swallow before starting her mondo fit.

She got up into crawling position, dropped her arms, started going with her legs and rubbed her face into the floor.

This was nearing the end, she was a little tired. And yes, that is a piece of cottage cheese in the corner of her mouth.
Phew, I hope (but know I'm wrong) that this is not a sign of things to come. It was nuts! :)

Just for Grandma

Our car is in the shop right now so we won't be leaving for Boise tonight as planned. Here's a little preview for Grandma of the fun she's going to have later this week! (BTW Mom, as I am writing this she is leaning against the couch, straight as a board. I guess she doesn't feel the need to go down the hall when there aren't visitors around.)

House Pics

Haha, you were excited weren't you? Well, it's not quite ready for show yet. I promise, as soon as I get a couple more boxes out of the way, I'll give you a little tour.

Lessons in Self Feeding

First, get a feel for your eating utensil. A gooood feel.

Then, show mom how good of a job you did.
Make sure to cheer yourself on. This is hard work!
After making a HUGE mess, ...
...recognize that it's time for a bath. Strip down right where you are and head for the tub.
While in the tub, revel in your success. You are a big kid now.
Then, commit it all to memory because there is no way mom is going to let you do that again for a long, long time. : )

Thanksgiving Time

Thanksgiving week was a crazy one for us. We moved into our new house (yay!) on Monday, went to Huntsville on Wednesday, ate then came back to our house on Thursday, unpacked and played with my family on Friday, went to Bancroft, ID on Saturday, then drove home on Sunday. Whew! We always have such crazy holidays, but for this time in our lives we love it!

Missy's 1st Thanksgiving...a holiday all about food...of COURSE she loved it!


I didn't take any pictures of our lunch in Bancroft or our time at the Lava Hot Springs, but here we are at the yummy pizza place late that night.

Cute sisters!

This girl was past delirium at this point.

Love the Lakemans! We missed the Keys and Jared, though!

I'm pretty sure that besides my own, the Teeples' kids are the CUTEST!

And it's a good thing Cindy and Russ saved the day with the chocolate and ice cream so that we could have our milkshakes! You'll have to look back to last year to hear that story.

This year I was also lucky enough to see a long, lost friend at the pizza restaurant! I don't have any pictures, but hopefully my mom will post at some point : ). We had a great week of fun, family, and food!!!

We've Reached 10 Months

And she's getting cuter every day! Little Miss is practically growing right before our eyes. I can't believe how expressive and silly she is becoming. We are having a blast watching her little personality develop. Here are some 10 month highlights:

*Pulling herself to a stand
*Getting into a sitting position on her own
*Lots of "talking": neeneenee, dada, mama, mmmmmm, the occasional scream/outburst, and we still get some "Bob" sprinkled in every now and then
*Laughing at silly things (anytime mom holds things in her mouth: keys, baby spoon, straws, combs)
*"Feistyness": she is very opinionated and will let you know how she feels, she will also try to take toys from other kids, she won't let anything/anyone get in her way if she wants something
*Very attached to mom and dad still. We both spend lots of time spouting phrases like: it's not you, it's her. etc.
*Lots of interest in food! She will at least try everything that is put in front of her. She will like pretty much everything that she tries more than once. If she doesn't like something, she pulls a stink face.
*Still has just 4 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth but is working on adding 2 more to the bottom.
Not quite sure what that face was all about, but it makes me laugh.

The shirt says, "If you think I'm cute, you should see my grandma." So true on both sides!

For all those who don't see her beautiful smile because she's hiding in my it is, eat it up!

And my favorite shirt..."SUPER CUTE"
