10 & 11 Months

I have no time to write, but I figure I can at least post some pics for those out there who might still be following my blog. :)

10 Months:

11 Months:

And these are the two reasons (other than my baby girl) why I have so little time to blog...

Me and my horse, Clover

Ben and his horse, Polly

When we moved to Arkansas we bought two horses. An industry I've always wanted to get back to since I met Morgan's daddy and we got married.

My little girl keeps me very happy and we are busy playing together most days, but when I'm able to find a few hours here and there...I'm usually at the barn. Life rocks!! :)

9 Months!

Morgan is starting to talk....well, sort of she says, "mom-mom-mom-mom-mom"...and she got her first tooth on April 20th. She weighs 18 lbs and is 27.5" long. She loves bananas and sweet potatoes and is just the happiest baby! She started really crawling on the 21st of April and now she's moving everywhere super fast! We think she'll be walking in no time....I started walking at 9 months so maybe she's taking after her mama. We'll see! Every day is more joyful than the next. She's just breezing through her milestones and we are the happiest parents around!!

8 Months!

Morgan's mobile! She claps her hand and eats cheerios all by herself. She's silly and loves to splash in her tub and blow raspberries with her tongue!! My baby is turning into a little girl!! Every time I look at her I see hearts flying around like in the cartoons! What a blessing to be able to experience all of this!! :)

7 Months!!

Morgan is 16 lbs 8.5 ounces now and sitting up very well on her own. She's almost crawling but still needs to figure out how to lift her chest up and pull her knees under her at the same time. She does both of those things independently now. I know its just a matter of time til she figures it out and when she does she'll be a movin! We had our first round of sickness last week. She had her first cold. It was so sad to see her feeling crappy, but now she's all better and I'm totally relieved. There were a number of long sleepless nights because she was so stuffy she couldn't sleep or eat or stop crying! Ugh it was awful!! What made it worse was the fact that I was sick too and her daddy was on a business trip. It was definitely our toughest week yet! Glad its over!

Other than our bought with illness things are great. She's a busy girl who loves her toys and lots of attention. She's also very vocal. She loves to make all her sounds at full volume...even when we're grocery shopping. She's definitely living up to her Leo spirit and is anything but a wall flower! She is determined  for everyone to notice her. haha...oh boy!! She's gonna be a handful when she's a toddler!!!

She's eating all the vegetables and fruits now. Also she likes Mum Mum crackers and little puffs. She's getting pretty good at feeding herself. I put lil' biscuits and frozen banana chunks and apple slices in her munchkin food pouch so she can chew on those and she LOVES it! She still doesn't have any teeth and doesn't show any signs of one coming, but that doesn't stop her from munching on anything I let her get her hands on. She definitely likes to eat! This month I plan to introduce some meat and yogurt.

She's sitting up in restaurant high chairs and shopping carts all by herself (with her floppy seat cover of course) and she loves being able to see whats going on! She laughs and smiles a lot and it feels like she's turning into a little girl. She's definitely still a baby, but her personality is developing so quickly!! We love our little miracle so much!!!

And she's got lots of little buddies!!!

(This was the moment she got her first cold!!!)

Here are some recent videos:

And here are her 7 month shots:

5 Months!

My goodness...where has all the time gone? Moagie is FIVE months! Holy Crap! I can't believe how fast time goes when you have a baby....(and how slow times goes when you're pregnant.) I wish I could reverse the two!!

A lot is about to change in our life...we're moving across the country from Ohio to Arkansas for Ben's job. We're excited about the new adventure but with all the preparation it sure doesn't leave much time for blogging. Here's a quick update:

Morgan is a very smiley baby. She is happy and that means the world to me! She's sitting up on her own now which is exciting. She doesn't have any teeth yet, but we're getting close to starting her on solid food. I think we'll get out the rice cereal once our move is complete...three weeks from now. She still sleeps through the night and seems to be content with just formula so putting it off seems fine. Plus our pediatrician mentioned that some research shows that waiting until 6 months can be beneficial. I am getting excited about seeing her faces when she tastes different foods for the first time, but I'm happy to put off the extra mess and feeding time until we're settled in our new house.

She LOVES her Luv U Zoo Jumperoo so much. She just goes bonkers in it and its hilarious! She also loves putting her feet in her mouth along with anything else she can get her hand on. She loves her toys....especially Jacques the Peacock and Sophie La Giraffe. Its so fun to watch her try to figure her world out. She is very engaging and alert. She loves people and dogs and all kinds of stimulation...a total party animal!

She really is my pride and joy!!! Here are some photos (and a video) from the last month...
