It's official, our first word "Momma." She has been babbling for a while now saying MMMmmommaa, DDDaddadaa, but this week she started saying "momma" to me and I can't be more in love. So happy! We went to the doctor for her 9 month check up on Tuesday and the stats are as follows:
Height: 27 1/2 inches (45%)
Weight : 18 lbs 6 oz (39%)
She is a little small, but perfect none the less. I was happy to report that her ears checked out fine, but unfortunately lil' miss has not been herself since yesterday and I hate to think another ear infection is creeping up. Who knows, but we will be watching her. So far a few other things in a recap, we packed up and headed to the lake this weekend after work on Friday. My parents, Casey, the kids and I had a great time on Friday night and Saturday, until around 7 PM. Reese had gone down for a catnap around 6 and woke up around 7 just not happy. She started crying and would not stop. I feel like by now I know her cries and this one was one of pain. It was so bad and she was inconsolable. Casey and I quickly packed up a few things and got in the car prepared to go to the ER in College Station because something just seemed so wrong. My parents finished packing up and left an hour after us with Ashton. I tried to console her in the back of the car and when we made it to College Station she was sleeping so we decided to push on home. We got in a little after 11 PM and I put her in bed next to me. It was an off and on night with her but she did sleep. This morning she was crawling around just happy as could be with nothing but a runny nose. So, maybe I overreacted but the baby I was holding last night was not my "normal" little girl. I still don't know what was wrong, ears? gas? stomach ache? So as I said before we are watching her for now and hoping a trip to the doctor is not in the near future.
As a side note, she did get her first split lip on Friday. She has learned to pull herself up, and she did just that, only to come crashing down and bit her little lip which caused a nice amount of blood. Thankfully she seemed fine after a few minutes. Ashton had a great time riding on the four wheeler, mowing the grass with Mo and making "Mimi Donuts." He is a total ham who makes us want to hug him one minute and pull our hair out the next but we wouldn't trade any of this for the world. I leave you with some pictures.
