Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Update on life I suppose..

Grace is officially nine months old now! She is growing sooo fast. It really does seem like I just found out I was pregnant. Scared young girl wondering how on earth she was going to make it work, and now here I am. Out on my own with my fiance and my daughter. Fixing to start college and go on with my life. Five years ago I would tell you you were crazy if someone told me this was how my life was going to pan out, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I even want more kids someday. I would love to have a little boy, but I would love another girl too! I don't want anymore until I am out of college though.

Anyway, enough about me.. yesterday was Grace's nine month check up :) She is 22.6lbs and 29 in long! She also had to have her finger pricked for a lead test and two shots :( If we had taken a video of her getting her finger pricked I am almost positive we could have won Funniest Home Videos. He mouth immediately dropped open and she gave the nurse the most shocked look. It was so funny, but then she started to stick out that bottom lip like she was going to cry. I was holding her and Chris started playing with her to get her mind off of it and it actually worked, but eventually she got tired of being held in one spot and got mad. Then the doctor came in. Grace has a bit of a rash on her shoulder and arm and when I asked the doctor about it she said that it made since because her blood tests showed a slight viral infection.. REALLY??? She is sick again? When we walked in the doors I said "At least she is not sick this time." But no, of course she is sick. At least she isn't really showing any symptoms. I am dreading the winter though.. that is when she would always get really bad. Maybe her being older and having a stronger immune system will help. Then she had to have her shots.. she did not do well with that at all. It was pitiful :(
Also her right top center tooth came in on August 1st :) She always cuts two around the same time I guess. And I am pretty sure she is going to be a lefty because she seems to prefer her left hand when picking up toys or food, but that does not surprise me one bit since Chris and I are both lefties :)
Oh and she is in the 90th percentile for her weight, which is finally lower than the 95th she has always been in. She has lost some of her chunkiness since she started crawling, but she is still in the 95th percentile for her height! She is going to be tall! Which she gets from her daddy considering I am only 5'2" and her daddy is 6'2". Yes, he is a whole foot taller than me lol.

I know I haven't said much about Chris and I lately so I figure I'll let everyone know that I am pretty sure a different person has inhabitted his body. He is completely different. So much more loving and caring to both of us. And he thinks of us before himself. If we disagree on something we actually talk about it instead of fighting about it automatically.

My mom and my sister came over for dinner the other day, and I was a little worried about how they would all get along, but it acutally went well. We ate pizza and watched America's Funniest Home Videos. Everyone got along well. Also, my mom told my dad that Grace and I moved out. She said he took it pretty well, but I haven't talked to him yet. I hope he really does take it well because I don't feel like getting lectured.

The neighbors that caused all the noise and partying got evicted so we don't have to worry about them anymore :) I am thankful for that because I didn't like all of that around Grace and waking her up every five minutes. I just hope the next person that moves in isn't worse than them.

Lastly, I thought I had gotten rid of Kevin, because I had not heard anything in over two weeks, but yesterday I got another text. I mean does he not get the hint??

  1. Yeah they grow fast. It's bittersweet. Also Kaedyn and Charleigh are both like that. Always getting sick. The other day Kaedyn had a fever out of no where. Also he had a viral infection that showed as a rash a couple months back. Kaedyn had always been on the chucky side. He is still in the 95th percentile in weight and height and he hasn't gained a pound since 9 months old. He is still 33 pounds. But he has definitely evened out. He is proportional. The doctor said there is nothing wrong with his weight that he is just a big boy. Always has been always will. He said that he is a football player. Everybody says that because he is so big. Even complete strangers but since we live in Title Town USA (it's a real thing) that is expected. Drew and his dad are really excited. They both played highschool football. Kaedyn has already taken a liking to it. Since he was a baby he liked to sit and watch football games. He went all of our senior games(in my belly). But that is awesome that Chris has changed. It doesn't happen often. And about Kevin no I dont think he got the hint. I mean he is a boy.
