Nine Months!!!

holy gravy, my baby is nine months!  i can NOT fully comprehend all the changes she has gone through since that first week...and how exponentially faster and faster she seems to be growing and developing each day.  there is so much i want to share with you, but in all honesty, right now, i am on total catch-up mode...and the fastest way for me to catch you up, is photos!  as i think most of you know, we moved into our new the seven month photo was our last shot from immi's gorgeous nursery :(.  i {not so} secretly want to go knock on the door of the condo, just so i can see if the new owners kept the nursery....then on the other hand, it's probably better i don't know, and just believe in my head that they are having a baby and bought the condo just to have that room as a nursery...{ok. ok...just let me think what i makes me happy}.  anyways, that also means we lost our magic lighting room.  i swear, you couldn't take a bad photo in that room. everything came out perfectly lit each time. ok, enough babbling...9 month comparison photos!

so there were definitely better styled ones of her nine month shot...where you could see the entire "nine months" and we even got faith, immi's best bud, to sit in for a pose....but this face...this IS immi.  she is adventurous, brave...a little mischievous, but really stinkin' cute, and sweeter and smarter and funnier than i could have ever dreamt of...make sure you watch the video at the bottom...pretty sure i will treasure this one for the rest of my life. this is us at nine months folks...

yes, there is more to this story than the 5lbs i put on in like 5 days by eating cheesecurds 24/7...oh how i miss my deep-fried friends.  but, before i tell my story, i need to apologize for my absence to the blogging world.  what can i say? life came at us full force :) in a good way...more like a great way! but i thas definitely been a whirlwind.  while we were in wisconsin (oh, back over the 4th of july), we closed on our new house (YES!, there will be a NEW house post), and sold the condo! woot!  which meant we couldn't take out time moving...oh yah, and then there was adam's almost month long trip to china...derp.  me, baby, new about a dose of grown-up comin' at yah like a flock full of rhinos.  lucky for me, MY mama came out and took good care of me...ok, really, she ignored me, BUT took great care of Immi...hahahahaha. i only jest. kind of...and no, i'm not jealous of all the attention immi gets...really!

OK! and now on to my story....wisconsin.  this was our big trip back to the northwoods with our little baby girl.  she met aunties and uncles and cousins and great-grandma ruth was there!!! talk about non-stop hug'n and kiss'n.  (we even ran out of time to get mani's and pedi's...wha???)

this story is probably best told in, here you go. 

this is just a small showing to whet your pallet...i have A LOT to catch you up hopefully there will be more posts from this trip...if not, i'll eventually get them onto smugmug for y'all.

we started the trip in minnesota...she was just smitten with weird uncle ryan...

fires at night... the fireflies were even cooler!
 play twins with boppa...
some QT with GG Ruth..

meeting some of the wisconsin cousins...fffiiiiinally!

and just some more....

adam is A LOT better and finding the right words to say for most situations...and since we can't exactly ask HIM how to tell HIM how much he means to us, Imbot and I created this little video instead. We love you daddy!  The time we spend together is worth more than all the silver and gold...

remember, if you want to see if the video to be full screen, click on the icon in the bottom right corner!

and Immi and I secretly put on her Father's Day outfit a little early for a quick photo session... :)  i think the sweetness just oozes from those goobs.  Happy first father's dad daddy...

Evolving Love

Flora & Henri, one of our favorite baby brands, had a photo contest not too long of course, Cassidy (of Love Thy Nest) and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to dress the girls up and snap some, we didn't win, but if you go to the site now, the photo of the super hero picking his nose....thats the winner.  yah, i have to admit, kind of amazing.  i'm gonna need to keep that idea in my back pocket for down the road.   Anyways, they wanted a photo and a story behind the photo, so here's our story and photo!

When sweet Rylie met her adorable cousin Imogen for the first time, it may have not been lovee at first sight. In fact, a first born child and first grandchild, Rylie was very used to all of the attention being on her and was clearly not happy with sharing the spotlight. The story behind this photo shoot is one of evolving love.  More recently, Imogen’s baby coos and giggles have begun to win Rylie over, and we captured some of her affection when she graced Imogen with a few kisses.  Seeing how fashion forward Imogen was in her soft and adorable Flora and Henri outfit, Rylie was beginning to warm up to the idea of sharing the spotlight, that is…until Imogen began to nibble on Rylie’s Flora and Henri dress….. (story by Cassidy)

six months

as you can see...six months means much more Immi to handle!! hahahaha.  she was way more entertained this time by the fact that she could rip the letters down than by the goofy noises and dances mom was doing to grab her attention.  Can you see it in her face? "Look mama, these letters come off!"

so six         wow.    wow.  wow.  it's crazy how you can go YEARS, and time flies by, and nothing really significant changes...then all of a sudden you have this amazing little person and SO MUCH happens in just 6 months...and you are continually grabbing at time to just cling onto whatever time allows you to keep for more than a millisecond!  when i think about it, i start to hyperventilate...not a good idea.  so the best thing to do is just be in every moment possible, and enjoy it. stuff about our 6 month old.

* sitting's great, because we can stick her on the floor while getting dressed and she'll sit there and grab for her toys...keeping her entertained for the seven minutes it takes to slap on some mascara, and blush...brush my teeth.

* we've got a tooth! and more coming in...yay for mom! who needs sleep anyway, right?

height: 27" - 85%
head: 17.24" - 85%
weight: 14lbs 4oz - 13%

tall and skinny with a big 'ol melon....

the doc's are happy with her weight's more consistent now...and they're impressed with her development and how strong she is!! so all-in-all...everything is going great!  I can't even handle that face... comparison time!!!!  i sure do miss that 1 week squishy face, but i wouldn't trade this six month goober face for anything in the world.

and some of my favorite things to nibble on....

that scrumptious little neck...

 and those chubby little fingers...

and oh how i can't even TAKE how cute the airpit rolls are... softest skin ever!

and those itty bitty toesies...those are a perfect compliment to any nibblings.
