reasons why my posting is not very consistent:



Always picking up, and cleaning

visiting with family on the weekends

visiting our friends at the nursing home 2 blocks for our house

trying to nurse Chloe

Trying to Feed Chloe

Distressing after a battle of wills while trying to get Chloe to eat something

exercising on my Wii Fit

learning awesome new tricks in photoshop! (I can spend all my time on this)

Spending time with my girlies (Mel, Laura, Anya, and Jamie)

Talking on the phone with such Girlies

planning my grocery list for the next month so we can save money and time by going shopping once a month instead of 4x a month or more (This is a new thing that I am trying to do and it seems to be working out better than I imagined it)

Taking pictures of my sweet baby girl

editing pictures of my sweet baby girl

spending time with Gar (although I can't remember the last "real" date I had with him unless going to the temple is considered a "date")

and last but not least watching Martha Stewart!


So that has been why my posting is not consistent. Chloe had her 9 month cheek up and... she is perfect. although she hasn't gained any weight since 6 month the doc isn't too worried about her as she doesn't look like she is starving or anything. However he did say that she needs more milk! ahh that is the last thing a nursing mother wants to hear when she know her child is weaning, and when she hates formula, she spits it out and wants nothing to do with it! oh well I guess you can't have a perfect baby but she is so close!

9 months

I can't believe it's been 9 months! how crazy the time has gone by Chloe is now almost a toddler, not even a baby! I am so happy with the pictures I had taken, they are sort of like in a documentary series of what we do at night, after supper, I hope you enjoy!

I am so amazed at how fast Chloe is growing up can you believe it will be 9 months on Friday! wow just this week she is crusing and is standing for a short time! We got some baby proofing to do!

For Halloween we got to go to the nursing home that we volunteer/visit at, all the residence were so excited to see Chloe and loved her pokey the puppy costume! I felt sorta bad because they kept giving her "extra"candy that she will not be able to eat. One resident even gave her a unicorn Beanie Baby! It was so nice of the Heritage Care Center to have us go trick or treating, I guess that is where all the little kids go in town they expect about 700 trick or treaters, which I think is really amazing!

The whole month of October every one said that Ellis (our street) is the street to Trick or Treat and that we should have a lot of candy, so we bought more than what I would consider normal thinking we will be out by 7:00pm. We now have 4 or 5 bags of candy left! we didn't get as many as I thought, had we know we would have given out two to every one that came, we figured we had about 100 trick or treaters.

So does any one have any creative ideas what to do with left over candy?

Here is what's new with Chloe!
