New Stuff to Play With!

This is fun stuff to play with!!

Today was just another typical Tuesday with Marlee and Courtney. After lunch they were playing in the kitchen and I was cleaning up lunch and talking on the phone to my friend Jenn. The next thing I know is that Marlee has opened up the cabinet where all of the snacks and canned foods are! She started pulling out all of the crackers and fruit snacks. Courtney came over to see what she was doing and joined in on the fun too! After all of the snacks were taken out, Marlee decided to climb into the cabinet and pull down the canned foods that were on the back on a shelf! Since she's still a little short, she was able to stand up inside the cabinet to do so! The girls had some fun playing with wrapped crackers, bags of chips, fruit snacks, and canned foods! Looks like I'm going to have to make sure the latch stays on the cabinet, or else this may become a daily activity!

9 month check up!

Checking out the bandaids!

Today Marlee had her 9 month check up (even though she turned 9 months last week). No shots this time, just a finger prick to check her iron. Poor baby, the nurse had to check it twice because the first time the count came back really low. If you look closely in the picture, you can see that Marlee has a bandaid on each of her middle fingers! She tried to chew them, but by the time we left the office, the bandaids had fallen off! The doctor was proud of her growth. She's 18.5 pounds and 28 inches long. She's in the 50% for her weight and 20% for her height. Translated: she will probably grow to be about 5'3" (probably my height and weight). The doctor said she was free to eat just about anything except eggs, honey, and peanut butter!! One thing the doctor asked me before we left was if I remembered when she was 2 weeks old! Of course I do, but it seems so far away! Marlee is really growing! Now she is cruising on EVERYTHING! She cruises on the walls, tables, chairs, and anything she gets her hands on! Marlee is trying to take a few steps too! Boy am I in for it when she starts walking!!
