A Blog is not a Baby Book.



9 Months:

Chloe turned 9 months old yesterday. She had her well-visit this morning and is doing great. Her doctor said that she is right on target and then called her a feisty little thing. I couldn't agree with her more.

I'm posting her stats merely due to the fact that I need to remember these things for when I fill out her baby book, which is currently collecting dust in a drawer somewhere. I have to keep reminding myself that a blog does not count for a baby book. A blog does not count for a baby book. A blog does not count for a baby book. One of these days it will sink in.

Height: 27 inches
Weight: 20 pounds, 1 ounce

Here are a few things she likes to do: 
-Crawl. 
-Pull herself up to standing.
-Cruise. 
-Walk, with help.
-Clap. 
-Sing.
-Listen to music.
-Look at my Vogue magazines. I'm proud.
-Say ma-ma, da-da, and ba-ba directly.
-Babble. 
-Growl. I never said she was completely normal.
-Read books. 
-Eat anything and everything. Especially things that I don't get vacuumed--paper, dirt, dust,      hairballs. But she mainly eats veggies, fruit, meat, cheese.
-Feed herself.
-Swim.
-Laugh.
-Smile.
-Give kisses.
-Sleep.
-Play independently. But loves playing with mom and dad. Especially dad.
-Be tickled.
-Play with other babies and kids.

Someday, when she asks to see her baby book, I predict this will happen. I will hand her her baby book, and it will be completely blank, except for this note.

Dear Chloe,

I am sorry. For the story of your life, please visit http://myblogmlashley.blogspot.com/. 

Love,

Your Mom

blurb.com allows you to publish your blog or specific posts/pictures so it COULD be her baby book!

A blog is a baby book! I'm going to turn mine into one someday. I don't care if it costs thousands of dollars.....it's worth it!

I will definitely be printing this thing out in the future. I'm sure that my kids will love to have all of the embarrassing stories I've written about them and will write about them in the future.

MaKenna, Chloe looks just like me in those pictures. Just not in the face. She has my.....my....hands?
