Oh man, I can't believe Colbie is 9 months!!! That is huge!!! Well, she is on the move. She scoots with her toes and "army" arms and loves to walk while holding fingers. She has also done real crawls a few times too. She is eating so many foods... we've added spinach and squash to her list. Everything she eats she likes (or at least doesn't dislike) and she loves loves loves bananas in her mesh feeder. She also had a peach in her feeder and just sucked it and tossed it (it was tart!). Averie and Baylor are very interested in playing with her now. It's like she just started getting cool because they can entertain her. The also watch her for me too. Averie is also good at moving her if she gets too close to our coffee table (with permission of course). Some of her favorite toys are Baylor's computer, things to pat or pound, wheels that spin and her baby piano. She does awesome in her bed (I lay her down and she rolls over and that's it) and has 2 naps. One at 10am - 12pm and another from 2pm - 4pm. If things get busy in the am and she misses her nap (Sundays) she will typically nap in the afternoon from 2 - 5pm. Which is so nice. She goes to bed around 7:45pm and has been sleeping all the way thru the night about 75% of the time now (until 8am). When she does wake in the middle of the night occasionally it is around 4am and I just feed her and she goes right back to sleep. She is so happy and silly and sweet, and a "Mama's girl", I just love her!

All ready for the 4th of July!!
We have been keeping plenty busy swimming and hanging out around the house. Colbie is getting so big. She is sort of army crawling...scooting on her belly by pushing her toes along the floor. It is pretty cute! She is also trying tons of new foods, spinach is the most recent. She loves her baths and the grass (sounds strange but she dives for the grass!). Averie is a swimming fool. She loves the pool and swims all over. She would spend all day in the pool if she could. She also has started having "rest" time instead of nap. We put paper and craft stuff along with puzzles, books and her easel in the guest room. She can do crafts, color and play during naps. If she is tired she can rest on the bed in there too. Baylor is doing great! He loves digging in the dirt and riding his bike and his tractor. He is a helper too with tools and working in the mulch with daddy. About two weeks ago we went to Put-In-Bay and had a wonderful time. Pics coming after I do this post... we rode the Ferry Boat and took a golf cart around (the kids two favorite things). We also went to Perry's Cave, the butterfly house and did about 5 of 18 holes of mini-golf (it was HOT!). We got yummy ice cream from "The Chocolate Factory" and discovered a place to play in the water (but the kids were napping when we found the water so we just kept driving around). We had a picnic and the kids played on the playground. What a fun day! They are already talking about going back with grandma and grandpa and getting an 8 seater golf cart. Ha ha. So, now it is the end of July and we are planning a camping trip for the 5 of us. We are taking off tomorrow for our usual place. It should be fun or at least an experience! :o)
Hoping butterflies will land on her...
