Tooth number 2 is through! Maybe that explains why she has been SO much fun in the middle of the night lately. Still just doing the "airforce" crawl. Pierce starts pee wee soccer tonight so I should have some new pics tomorrow!
So Mallory seems to have a natural talent for shooting cheerios with her finger...almost like that old game tiddliewinks I think this means she will be great at playing quarters someday. But wait...that would mean my baby would be at a party where there would be beer. Never mind.
It amazes me how the baby who will smile at everyone remembers her pediatrician and remembers that she does not like him. The second he went to touch her she freaked out and kept right on screaming until I picked her back up. Then she just kind of watched him and whimpered while I held her. He did not even DO anything to her yesterday. Over all a healthy girl. She does still have some fluid in her right ear that hopefully corrects itself before it gets infected. There is not really anything they can do about that. I remember Pierce having this problem a lot too and he thankfully grew out of it. They did stick her foot to check her blood and we were pretty surprised to learn that she is anemic. We are putting her on an iron vitamin and she will be checked again in about a month.
I realized this morning that calling it the army crawl is just not okay in our house. So, Airforce crawl it is and she is doing it pretty well. She will get up on all fours for a few seconds but that is it, but she is learning that there are far better ways to get where she needs to go then rolling there. We had a busy weekend. The kids had their pictures taken Sat at Penney''s and they turned out SO cute. I will be able to post them on the site in about a week but I warn you....I cannot be held responsible for any deaths that may occur due to an overdose utter cuteness. Yesterday we had a family play date at a friend of mine''s house. Some of my girlfriends from work and their families all met to let the kids play and the husbands learn how to brew beer. Pierce loved playing with someone else''s toys and Mallory got to play with Rachel who is only a few weeks older then her. I should have pictures once Rachel''s mommy sends them to me. Mallory has her 9 month checkup today!
This morning Pierce and I were downstairs while Joe was still in bed. He told me he was hungry so I told him that I would make some cinnamon roles. Pierce looks at me like I''m nuts and says "But mommy, you''re not the cooker man, daddy is the cooker man" Okay, so even my 3 year old has figured out that I am not the one doing the cooking in this house...but give me a little credit....anyone can open up the tube of cinnamon roles and pop them in the oven. Even if I DID burn the bottoms a little bit. *** Breaking LIVE Onesto family news....as I type this....Mallory is doing the army crawl!! I''ve never seen her do this before but they have told me for the last few days at school that she was trying. Yeah Mallory!
I was able to get some pictures this morning of the kids dressed for Valentine''s day. Pierce''s shirt says "Little Casanova" and Mallory''s dress was made by Joe''s mom! She looks so cute in it but wiggle worm is getting a little hard to get pictures of since she wont sit still. There are also a few pictures of Mallory and her boyfriend Camden from over the weekend and a few of Pierce after his haircut last week with it all styled!
THERE SHE IS!!!! Oh, so cute! She loves to play peek a boo! If she gets her hands on a blanket, or bib...she pulls it up over her face until you say "Where''s Mallory??" and then pulls it down real quick so you can say "There she is!!"
You know, I was just wondering the other day at what age kids start saying things that embarrass you. Apparently that age is around 3 something. Pierce''s little girlfriend Katie that I''ve mentioned before is going to be a big sister in a few months. Pierce knows this, he has talked about Katie''s mommy having a baby in her belly. Today we were chatting with Katie and her mommy at school and Pierce looks at her and says "Your belly is fat" I about died. Thankfully Katie''s mommy has a wonderful sense of humor (as well as her own 3 year old) and was laughing while I was yelling at him. Then I asked him "What is in her belly that is making it big?" And he responded "A baby" So thankfully he knew that....but Im waiting on the day he says that to someone who does NOT have a baby in his or her belly. Oh and stay tuned to see if Pierce has the same "gift" for baby guessing that his mommy does....he says that Katie is going to have a baby BROTHER.
Drop and pick up! Good times. Mallory has learned how much fun it is to drop things over and over from her high chair and then wait for it to be handed back to her. Does every baby eventually learn this? Her tooth is all the way through now. Her kisses will probably start to hurt now. Last night Pierce and Christian spent the night at my mom''s house. It was nice for the boys to get some time to play together. They made cupcakes for maw maw''s birthday and all 3 of them slept in a double bed together. I got some really cute pictures of Mallory and Levi which I added to the albums. None of Pierce and Christian because they were not dressed and Pierce''s face is all red. Enjoy!
The 3 of you who said FIRST TOOTH.....Im pretty sure you win (not that there is a prize...heehee) Im about 99% sure I feel the tip top of a sharp little tooth popping through. I can''t see it just yet but I can feel it. That may explain the ear infection. She is in a great mood today, but looks really gross. Hopefully this only lasts a few days.
Ew. I swear (and Joy I hope you read this) My kids never got sick this much when I had a private sitter. Mallory has pink eye. It is So gross. She also has a really bad ear infection that she gave no indication that she had. So she is on an antibiotic and hopefully it will clear up quickly. Pray that Pierce does not get it!
