Oh What A Week...

Have you ever had one of those weeks in which nothing can go right? This has definitely been one of those weeks. I worked Monday night and decided to stay over from 11p-3a (after working 3p-11p) because they were desperate for extra nurses. I was so excited because I made some really good money. That excitement left when the next day I saw my car being towed since I had to park on the street when I got home at 4am so Mark could leave for work. So basically I made a whole bunch of extra money so that I could pay to get my car out of the lot it was towed to.

On top of that we have a new addition coming to the Reiboldt household.

It is too small to get a picture of right now...

It makes someone rather cranky around here...

And no I am not pregnant.

It is a tooth! After months and months of teething we have had a sighting or I guess I should say more of a biting. Needless to say it has made for one fairly unhappy camper around here.

Here is to a much better week next week!

Happy 9-Months!

My how much can change in one month. This month Belle became a complete busy-body. Last month Belle was mobile, but now she is crawling much quicker, pulling up on everything, and cruising slowly around furniture. She is becoming more and more verbal saying things like da-dee, da-da, ma-ma, hi-eee, bababa, na-na-na, etc. She doesn't know what any of the words really mean yet but it is so cute to hear her tiny voice. She can range from little whispers to rather boisterous. This month she fully weaned herself to the bottle, and while I was sad about it, I cannot starve my child. Once I got over the initial sadness (who knew packing up my pump would make me teary) I have realized how nice it is to not be as tied down. She has really stretched out her feedings and dropped one on the formula. Belle started meats this month and isn't really impressed. We also got the ok from the pediatrician on Wednesday to start finger foods. Now for what you really want... pictures:

Sweet girl and daddy. She is really starting to have more hair grow in and it is very light and auburnish (if that is a word).

First tub bath.

Here is our attempt for size pictures with a mobile child:

And this is about attempt 25 and the best we could get. It included daddy singing and dancing hence the funny look on her face.

9-Month Stats

15 pounds, 9 ounces (5th percentile)

27 1/3 inches long (25th percentile)

1. Crawling everywhere -- getting into everything.

2. Crusing for mommy's iPhone.

3. Belle loves to sing along -- melts my heart to pieces.

Blog Slacker

Sorry about the slacking lately. We have really been swamped with Mark finishing his graduate schools. I have a 9-month post for Miss Belle so check back on Sunday when I get my camera card loaded.


Oh yeah, just saw gas for 1.99, very exciting!
