Tupperware cupboard

"Well, I found it...and can get into it!!" The only cupboard we have child-proofed so far is the cleaners cupboard so Zaylee was exploring today and found the cupboard where our bowls are. I provided her with the spoon but even before that was included in the picture she was having fun just pounding away at them!

Also, just a little note of her mischievous ways...Alex bought a bag of peanut M&M's today and had them on the living room table. Well, we were in making dinner and Zaylee had gone to the living room to play with her toys. She was being ultra quiet so I went in to check on her and she was standing up at the table watching "Deal or No Deal" with one hand in the bag of M&M's and the other up at her mouth about to put another one in. Yes, I did say another one. By the time I got there she had sucked off all of the chocolate and was working on gumming the peanuts of hopefully just the first one she had gotten! I guess we'll get to determine a little earlier than I had planned on if she has a nut allergy or not! Let's hope NOT! =)

Zaylee and I went on a walk to deliever primary cd's today and stopped by a lady's house in our ward who trains and shows horses. Well, she let me and Zaylee go into the barn and pet the horses and play with her dog. At first Zaylee was absolutely freaked out by the horses but when the lady started to feed them their horse cookies, Zaylee couldn't get enough of them. She didn't dare to touch them but was totally awed by them. Every time I would turn around she would try to get me to move out of her way so she could see them. She was bouncing in my arms and slapping my shoulder. She loved them! As for the dog, when we were leaving the barn she kept talking to her ("kiki! kiki!," "uh, uh"--you know just the normal baby language stuff) and then she finally got brave enough to let me set her down by the doggy while she petted her. It was a blast! I wish I would've had my camera!

More Easter Weekend Pics

9 Months old and Easter weekend

It was a busy week! We went down to LaVerkin and spent the week with family and had a blast. We had an afternoon playing at the park, Alex's brother went through the temple, and we were able to have an easter egg hunt with the family. Unfortunately, Zaylee got sick so we didn't end up doing nearly the amount of pictures that I was planning on but I did get a few. It was a huge bummer that she ended up getting sick but she seems to be feeling better now so at least we are grateful for that!

Also, she had her 9 month visit on St. Patty's day so I wanted to update you with her stats. She is 17.2 lbs (22%tile), 26.8 in (25%) and I think the nurse measured her head wrong but if not, her head circ. is 16.5 in (5%). The doctor said she looks like she is doing really good! She still doesn't have any teeth and he said it looks like she has a couple more months before they will poke through...but still, I'm okay with that! =) I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we do!
