Our 9-Monther

4 Aug

Rynn is now 3/4 of a year old!


In case you can’t tell by the picture, Rynn is tiiiiiiinnnyyyyy!  She weighs 14 pounds and 7 ounces and is 26 1/2 inches long.  That weight puts her in the first percentile for her age.

Despite being tiny, she is still one healthy, happy girl.  She is progressing well and the doctor says she is very strong.  She likes to say, “dadadadada,” and she  just started saying, “mamama” this week.

She eats a lot of solid food and I just started giving her whole milk to supplement my breastmilk.  She loves yogurt melts, homemade beef casserole, and veggies or applesauce with sprinkles of cinnamon.  She also loves blueberries and bananas.

She’s at the age where she’s into everything. In fact, just as I typed that sentence she dumped a basket of folded laundry onto her head.

Rynn also loves the water!  She climbs into her pool in the backyard, loves to splash in the bathtub, and she really loves to dunk her face in the water.

This girl is definitely proof that good things come in small packages!!



No Sympathy

3 Aug

Shortly before lunch yesterday the phone rang and I had to run to the living room to find a phone (all four of our cordless phones tend to end up in one room by mid-day).  In my rush I stubbed my toe on a bar stool.  While I was laying on the couch and moaning in pain, Reece came up to me and asked,

“What’s wrong, Mommy?”

I said, “Oh, I just hurt my toe and I already don’t feel very good (more on that later).”

Reece’s response was this (word for word) and spoken in the sweetest voice she could muster:

“Well, do you feel like getting up and going into the kitchen and fixing some green pancakes for me?”


My response?

Of course I do.”

That girl.


Coming soon…Rynn at 9 months and our ranch and lake trip!!
