{monthdate} nine months

We have had a fun filled month with many firsts for our sweet Ellie. Now that really isn't too surprising since just about all of her firsts are going to happen this first year.  We didn't have too many thing that we did this past month but let me tell you - we enjoyed every minute of it!!

You got to see a first for the Seattle Seahawks franchise when they won the Super Bowl on February 2nd. Of course you only got to watch a portion of it because you were not feeling well and Mama had to take you into the spare room to get you to nap.  Every time I tried to put you down you woke up so I ended up missing most of the game as well.  Aside from being a little crabby you were just the cutest little girl!

You attended your first Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle.  Nanny even came too for her first time.  As usual you were a total champ and we got stopped by nearly every vendor who commented on your adorableness!

The Winter Olympics started in Sochi.  We aren't huge on the Olympics in our family but we have discussed whether or not you want to Go for the Gold in any of these sports.  Mama is rooting for Figure Skating.

You got Dedicated to our church on February 9, 2014!!  A few months later than what I had planned for but it worked out great because you were loving seeing all your favorite people at church!

And we got to celebrate your first Valentines Day!  It was a pretty low key day for us. We just got to spend some quality time with each other and bask in the love we have for you.

You have been a total sweetheart and just the best little girl we could ask for!!

Stats: Official stats on Mondays appt. 
Height: guessing around 28"
Weight: somewhere in the 19 pound range
Head: larger than 17"
Food: eating about 6 ounces at each feeding for about 28-30 ounces a day. Solid foods and self feeding bread, puffs, beans and peas. 
Diapers: size three
Clothes: mostly 6-9 or 6-12 month. With a few 3-6 still fitting well. 
Sleeping: pretty well through the night on verge about 10 hours. And then still has a few naps during the day. Still swaddled and sleeping in her own room. 
Cries: rarely. Usually when hungry or poopy. And then the occasional random times. 

Loves: baths, eating, holding her blankets, clapping, spinning her foot, kitchen utensils, rolling over, sitting, standing with assistance and laughing. 

Hates: still not a big fan of getting her boogers out and being hungry.  Depending on her mood she may or may not be a fan of the vacuum cleaner. 

Mama's proudest moment:  when she reaches for me

Daddy's proudest moment: how she says and whispers "dada" 

Oops of the month:  I don't think that we had any major events that would take the cake, but we have ran out of diaper wipes a couple of times (well nearly, we used the last of them).

Things we are looking forward to: Ellie walking and talking. 

Sweet dear Ellie.  How we love you so.  Watching you grow and mature and begin to interact and enjoy the world around you is just the most amazing thing.  I love your little voice and how you make yourself cough.  You are mesmerized by your hands and are so good at picking things up!  I always get a big smile on my face when I think of you!! I love you baby girl!
