September rewind!

Well it's been a while since I last blogged so I figured I better get on here and update everyone although when I go to other people's blog it seems like they too have been on a leave of absence. There isn't too much to update. Things have pretty much been following the same old routine with work but Kaylie sure does make things interesting. Kaylie turned 10 months in September and I'm pretty proud of  myself for taking a picture  and blogging about her fun antics every month. It sure does help when I print pictures and update her baby book. Which I can't believe she is almost one already! It doesn't seem that long ago that I had her and went on maternity leave. And now she is one tall, crazy little girl!
Let's see she is still around 30 inches long and weighs about 21 pounds. She still only army crawls but loves to cruise around the furniture and walls. She also loves to use her little walker and walks all around the living room. She won't stand by herself cause all she wants to do is bounce! She's our little Tigger! Some other nicknames she has acquired are: monkey and stinky. She loves food and will eat anything you put in front of her! She is doing better with chunkier baby food and loves the ones that have chicken and noodles in them! She just got her second tooth (yes they are sure slow coming in!) so we have been trying things like noodles, fruit, and she loves those baby cheese puffs! 
She loves to put things in her mouth, stick her tongue out, look at herself in the mirror, take baths, play with her dog and doll, watch morning cartoons, help mom with laundry and go for car rides! There isn't much that she hates and she rarely cries except when she gets sleepy. She still sleeps through the night, takes 2 great naps everyday, and has the funniest personality! She had so much fun on the bow hunt and was just dying to be put down and crawl in the dirt. Sadly she fell asleep right before the stuffed animal and candy hunts but had fun none the less. She even slept really good and didn't have any problems with allergies this time! Thank goodness! September has been full of Derick's softball games, work, and completing projects. I finally got a little play mat quilt for Kaylie, a wooden countdown project (only 39 more days until Kaylie is 1) and this cute rocking chair for Kaylie. I saw it out by the dumpster one morning and quickly picked it up. I think it turned out so cute and Kaylie loves to sit in it and rock! On Monday Derick's cousin Aubrey is taking pictures of Kaylie and I am hoping to get some cute pictures of her in the chair along with tons others (thanks to pinterest I have tons of ideas)
 Here is the rocking chair before and after. We had to re-make the seat and then I upholstered it with this cute fabric! I love how it turned out! It reminds me of the rocking chair I had when I was little. Well, I can't believe it is already October on Monday. This week we have Derick's brother Devin's wedding. Then I go off track in 2 1/2 weeks (thank goodness!) and then Kaylie and I are flying home to California the 22nd-29th! I am so excited! I haven't been home in almost 2 years and some of my siblings have only seen Kaylie once and that was when she was 5 months. So I thought it would be fun to go and then we can celebrate Halloween and her birthday with everyone there. So be on the look out because it sounds like October is going to be crazy and there will be tons more pictures to follow!
