Look at those Chubs

Our little girl went to her nine month appointment. I cannot believe that it has already been none months. It has been the longest and fastest nine months of my life. Jane loves to walk everywhere; that is if she is holding my hands. If we set her on the floor to crawl she starts crying and usually doesn't stop until she is on her feet again. I am all for the early walking.

Look at those impressive chubs on her. I know it may not look like alot, but i have worked dang hard to get my baby that fat. I have decided that I probably have the fattiest milk, but you throw in Derek's metabolism and no one could gain weight.

Jane is just showing off her mad standing skills.

So Jane put up some impressive numbers, in her standards, if you compare her to any other baby her numbers look ridiculous.

Head: 17.5 cm (60%)
Height: 26.25 inches (10%)
Weight: 15 lbs 14 oz (6%)

We know she is little but her mom is short and dad is super skinny. She has her genes working against her. She will thank us someday though.

Playing with her daddy while we were waiting for the doctor.

As a treat for getting shots, Jane got a cookie at her Aunt Michelle's house. She loves her sugar.

...and the army goes rolling along

Derek's little brother Travis graduated from AT last month and we all headed down to Sierra Vista to go visit. I was presently surprised at how well Jane did on the trip down. I was a little nervous, because who likes a screaming baby. The picture above is Jane showing off her new face. She has been doing her "O" face for like a month now, she does it whenever she is excited or surprised. Awe, we love this little girl.

While waiting for Uncle Travis Jane had so much fun playing with her cousin Beckham. Beck didn't think is was so much fun, as you can tell by his face, he thought she was attacking him every time she got really excited. Take note of the special camo bow that I made Jane just for this special occasion. This girl really does have a bow for every outfit.

We ended up staying over night at the base between family day and the graduation. We really didn't feel the need to drive home three hours and then back the next day. Jane loved snuggling in mommy and daddy's bed in the morning.

Her special red, white, and blue outfit for the graduation. She always has one handy in her closet.

Derek, Michelle, Beckham, Travis, and Steve after the graduation. Is that not the cutest outfit that Beck is wearing. This family is definitely army strong!

Our little family.

This is the best hat for Jane, so true, so true!

All bundled up while we were walking to the airport to drop Travis off.

Jane and Uncle Travis playing.

We really did have a fun time all together. Travis is heading to California, and we are excited to go visit him this summer after Derek's training in Utah and his trip to Germany.

Jane also just turned nine months. She is getting so big! Her doctor appointment is this Friday and we are hoping she will hit 16 pounds. Still no teeth, and we are starting to get a little concerned.

The house is coming along, I am almost done painting downstairs and will post pictures soon.
