So Caroline moved up to a new classroom recently at school. To say that I was reluctant would be a huge understatement. I did NOT want my baby to be too big for the infant classroom. Who were they kidding she wasn't ready to be in the room with that were walking. Well after a conversation with my mother I realized that Caroline was in fact ready to leave The Dogwood Room, otherwise known as the infant room, and move up to The Oaks Room.

After a two week transition it was time to make the move. Her teacher, Ms. Karen, was so sad to see her go. Ms. Karen really liked waiting to see what Caroline would be wearing each day. She referred to Caroline as a DIVA. So much so that it is a wonder that Caroline knows her name...its was DIVA this...DIVA that. Well on the last day Ms. Karen gave Caroline a gift. I opened it at home because I was a little afraid of what might be in there and I didn't want it to be awkward you know. So I opened it at home and I found an outfit fit for a DIVA. It was the sweetest's a little background...Ms. Karen has two children of her own and then she has custody of two of her brother's that's a total of four children on the salary of a daycare teacher. So you can see how incredibly special this outfit really is...

So blog readers...I need help coming up with the proper thank you gift. Get your creative thinking caps on and leave comments about good gifts.

Here's the two of them....

9 Month Appointment

So yesterday we had your 9 month appointment. I can hardly believe it. Here are the hard core statistics...

28 1/2 inches long - 95th percentile

23 pounds - 90th percentile

Your iron levels were a little low so we're on the iron supplements and we'll reevaluate the situation in 3 months at your 1 YEAR APPOINTMENT!

Things you are currently doing:

pulling up on absolutely everything, I mean girl you will use your spidey skills and pull up on a flat wall, you yank the spoon out of my are painfully independent, you LOVE your poofs, you are meserized by the door stop and the sound it makes, you can make this weird feed back noise by grinding your teeth together (it was a scary sound at first I thought you had some metal in your mouth...your father had been watching you), you love your tunnel, when you wake up, before you even open your eyes, you grab for your crib railing and pull yourself all the way and then open your eyes and are always so happy to see me, you crawl with one leg sticking out, you are starting to partially stand...and then fall, you absolutely HATE the word "No" (you must really be my daughter, you are in love with Vivian (wish she liked you as much...the pulling her hair doesn't help), you have started to cuddle with me when we rock at night (a personal favorite...please don't EVER change this), there are so many changes...they seem to occur daily.

I can't believe that you are 9 months old!

Tunnel of Fun

Thank you Ikea...for $20 you supplied my daughter with endless hours of tunnel fun.

This is just about the only "still" picture I got because in the rest she was going full steam ahead!

And back again...this continued for several minutes!

Tea Party with Grandmommy

The other day my Mom came in town to see Caroline and they had a tea party. Vivian eventually joined in as well. As you can see, everyone had a fabulous time.
