Little B is growing so fast!

Bree is 9 months and 1 week old today!! Holy goodness - SLOW DOWN!

Here are some things about her; she can:

  • recognize her immediate family, and most extended family :)
  • crawl well, and fast, particularly when the bath is running and she doesn’t want to miss out
  • stand with the support of almost anything, and then stand for up to 3 seconds without holding onto anything
  • magically get off our family bed, without injury, to play on the floor before waking daddy; he only thought something was up when the monitor was making weird noises. She was playing with it!
  • eat most solid food, especially when cut up into pea sized pieces (very nice pincer grasp emerging :)
  • bang objects together, on the floor, on her parents and/or sister
  • give nice, wet kisses!
  • wave bu-bye and hello
  • she LOVES to eat strawberries (given whole!), blueberries (cut in half), apple, spaghetti and tomato sauce, avocado, rice, egg, beef, chicken, peas, asparagus, green beans, broccoli, (she actually has a special interest in all green vegetables, given steamed and as whole as possible) and whatever everyone else is eating

We love her soooo very much!! Happy 9 months little bug!

It’s been a good day :)

It’s a good day if I get to do/have one of these:

  • a hot shower
  • a coffee
  • a break with both kids napping and/or not bugging me for more than 30 minutes

And it’s a GREAT day when I get all 3! I am currently enjoying this rare phenomenon :)

I have come around to enjoying iced coffee and iced lattes. My favourite way to make it is from The Pioneer Woman – iced coffee. I have a few bags of whole coffee beans (given as gifts; however we only use our espresso machine) and used my blender to crush them enough to use for this recipe. I use some caramel syrup and today 1% milk. Delicious!
