9 Month Update

Technically, Caden turned nine months two weeks ago, so I'm a little late posting, but I didn't want to miss out on this month!

My chunky boy is starting to slim down since he NEVER stops moving and getting into things; at his nine month appointment, he was almost 20 pounds and 29 inches. He smiles at everyone and loves trips to the grocery store now that he gets to sit in the cart. His favorite thing to do with his momma and daddy is crawl over to us, open his mouth, slam his head down, and wait for us to scream and wiggle around. We like to call him 'zombie baby.' Wait, wasn't I supposed to fit all this into those little boxes??

I saw this idea on Hooah and Hiccups. It is such a fun way to share your little one's progress and their growing personality!

Friday's Letters


Dear Baby Boy, You are going to be walking any day now, and I have to admit, the idea scares me. It doesn't help that your doctor told me about how all little boys constantly get hurt- busted lips, broken teeth, stitches. I'm not ready for that, nor will I ever be. Dear San Diego Weather, After spending a week back home in Phoenix, AZ during the month of July, I appreciate you all over again. Dear Big Brother Cast, You aren't all that interesting this season. Besides the second week, you are too predictable. FYI, the whole 'vote with the house' idea is pretty boring. Dear Husband, Talking about our future has always been fun, exept when it comes to re-enlistment and picking orders.

Goodbye July

Last month was crazy busy. I mentioned earlier that 95% of the month was going to be spent visiting with family. After spending time with my mom and sister (and visiting Disneyland), we had our nephew Deacon spend a whole week with us. Finally, we spent a week back home in Arizona for Chris's birthday.





Going back to Arizona is technically supposed to be a vacation for us, but it never feels like it to me. I don't know if it was the fact that I don't sleep well when I'm not in my own bed, the two all-nighters we had, or my fibro acting up, but I have spent the past week absolutely exhausted. It doesn't help that Caden is going through the nine month sleep regression. But after this weekend, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!
