10 Month Update

Grammy got her this dress in Hawaii.
Whitley hit the 10 month mark this past week and finally started to get some teeth....3 to be exact. Whoah! We are excited it is summer time and Whitley is most looking forward to music class, little gym, and of course spending time with her daddy while he is off. It is still a challenge to get her to want to sit in front of the chalkboard...I remember the days where I would snap about 40 pics of her in the same position and had plenty to choose the first photo I can get without it being blurry from her moving is the one! I was only able to get this one because I gave her my glasses and took the photo blind. Fun times =)

Whitley loved swinging at the park so much that her daddy installed her very own swing in the back yard.  As we walk to the back yard she gets really excited knowing she is probably going out there to swing.

Whitley likes to go over to Kate's house and play with her new kitchen...acting silly with Kate and stacking blocks in the window has become her favorite things to do.

Her other favorite thing to do is unload the dishwasher. I sure hope she likes to help when she gets a little older.

 Whitley was double booked for birthday parties this month. She first went to her friend Emma's 1st birthday party. They had such a good time although you cant tell from their shy faces.

We then finished off the day celebrating Layla's 4th birthday with a swimming party. This was Whitley's first time swimming and she loved the water. We are ready for summer so we can swim some more!

By the end of the day, the poor girl wore herself out.

 We will see you at 11 months. Sweet dreams!

9 Month Update

We have hit the 9 month mark! At her 9 month check up Whitley weighed 22lbs 14oz and was 30 3/4 in long. Still an off the chart baby!! The chalk board pics are also getting harder and harder to do as Whitley is on the move! Crawling all around and pulling up and very close to standing on her own.

See...she is bored with me and my chalkboard =)

Whitley really enjoyed visiting the Easter bunny.

On Easter Sunday we went to church and then came home to see what the Easter bunny had left Whitley. Whitley also got to help make her first bunny cake. My family has made this cake every year and I am so glad I get to share this tradition with Whitley now.

We ended the day with a little Easter egg hunt in the back yard. Whitley loved the plastic eggs the most.

Boiling crawfish is something her mama and daddy love to do this time of year so we were excited to have our first boil with Whitley. Of course no babies were harmed taking this photo but I cannot say the same for the little crawfish.

Big brother Monk also celebrated his birthday on March 31st. He was 10 years old...and he still is not a fan of me putting the party hat on him. Whitley is starting to love interacting with her puppy dog more and more. She even makes a grunting noise when she hears him bark or sees him.

Whitley also got to find her inner artist at Sydney's 2nd bday party. She had such a fun time.

Whitley also finished her first semester of music class. It was so fun to see her go from just starting to sit up at the beginning of the semester to ending it with crawling all over the place. This is such a fun class and we are looking forward to the summer session.

 Last but certainly not least...Whitley began sleeping on her stomach...which has resulted in her sleeping through the night. AAAAAHHHHH! Well see you in a couple weeks at the 10 month check up!
