9 months already!!!

I can not believe that Leah is 9 months old already! She is growing so fast and learning new things everyday. The past month has been very eventful for her, learning how to roll from her stomach to her sitting on her butt, crawling so fast we can barely keep up with her, pulling up on everything, torturing poor DJ, and cutting her first tooth..FINALLY!!! She had her 9 month check up on Tuesday, she is 17 lbs 13 oz. (40th percentile) and 27 1/4 inches long (50th percentile). She is eating all sorts of new foods, with turkey seeming to be her newest favorite (I guess she is going to love Thanksgiving.
Here are some pictures from her nine month birthday! Up next, Thanksgiving!!!

(This one was a few days before her birthday, but I love it!!!)

Bye Bye Bumpers!!!

I walked in Leah's room yesterday while she was supposed to be taking a nap...This is how I caught her and so, made the executive decision that it was time for the bumpers to come out of the crib!!!

First Football Game!!!

Sunday, Leah got to go to her first NFL game. Uncle Cordell, Daddy's best friend and his family were in town to cheer on his brother-in-law, Deuce McAllister, the running back for the New Orleans Saints. We got to go to the game to help cheer them on! Even though the Saints lost, we all had lots of fun! Leah was so excited that she could scream as loud as she wanted and nobody tried to make her stop! And hey, we are in Atlanta and the Falcons did play a good game!!!

Little Ladybug

I have been avoiding this post, there are so many pictures I don't even know which ones to choose. That is a problem for me quite often, so I decided that if you are reading my blog, you know me well enough to know I take way too many pictures and therefore my blog will inevitably reflect that!!!

Leah had a great 1st Halloween. A few days early I had this brilliant idea to get her a pumpkin and let her play in the guts...She was not having any of it!!!

Auntie Allyce and I took her to the pumpkin patch so we could pick the perfect pumpkin...

Leah and her first "Great Pumpkin"

This thing is edible right???

Picking pumpkins is rough work, Leah decided to chill with her pumpkin!

Forget Pumpkins!!! Give me Hay!!!

Ha! I got it!!!

We took her to Grandma and Grandpa's in hopes of getting some good Pumpkin Gut pictures...Not happening, did get some cute ones though!!!

You want me to put my hand in there???


Nope! I don't think so!!!

Now, this is more my size!

Daddy had a pumpkin carving contest at work. They came in 2nd place!!!


Halloween was a very busy day, Auntie Ashley spent the evening with us! Daddy went to vote and had to wait 4 hours!!! We went to visit him in line, then we went to visit MeMe, Uncle Dee Dee, and Grandma and Grandpa!!!
