For you Nana

Well, Nana told me she's going through withdrawals since I haven't posted in a while. We've been having camera issues but now that's been fixed, and our stupid computer is having issues with the camera connecting to download pictures. So until I get things figured out we will be picture-less.
Lauren's birthday came and went. She got so spoiled and had way too much cake. I was seeing the effects of spoiling/cake for a good week afterward. I can't believe we have a 4 year old. She is getting less shy and more independent everyday. I really see a lot of my personality in her these days, that may be why we butt heads..both stubborn!
Kristen is wanting to get into everything these days and just started crawling a couple of days ago FINALLY, but really I was fine with her not crawling, it was easier. She's not really going far, still just content to play with what is within a few feet of her. Also she has a unique crawl...knee, foot, knee, foot. It's a walk/crawl I guess. It's quite cute. I have a little video of it that I'll post ASAP.
She's also trying desperately to pull up on anything and everything around her.
As for Cory and I, Cory survived finals, hallelujah! We have really enjoyed having him around. He's officially a 3rd year student.
I'm just truckin' along trying to keep up with things around the apartment here. Crafting here and there and a little bit of cleaning house when I have to! I need a cleaning lady I've decided. We also enjoy playing with friends on a daily basis. And of course going to the pool!
We will be moving in to a house (rental) in the first part of July and we're excited, but also VERY sad to see our wonderful friends, the Pecks, who live in the house, leave for almost a year.
Well, that's it for now..I'll update pictures soon I hope!

New favorite thing

I Love this thing, it's "squirt" from Boon.
I got it as Babies r' Us today...I just wish I would have had it 5 months ago!! So for those of you whose babies are going to be eating solids in the next few months, get one of these! It even had a little cover for the spoon so you can stick it in your bag with food in it and go!
I love all of the "Boon" products...so very Mod. Check them out! I think I will get the animal bag to stuff all of Lauren's stuffed animals in next!

9 months old

Kristen is getting old =(
She is the sweetest baby ever and I am so blessed! She had her 9-month well check-up today and hated it...the doctor sucked...she had to be poked in the arm for a TB test and had to have blood drawn for lead and anemia screening...boy oh boy was it fun. Not to mention the hour and 1/2 we had to wait for the stinkin' doctor! Kristen came home and crashed for a 2 1/2 hour nap and just woke up happy as ever. She is just on cloud 9 if I'm holding her or in the room. It's pretty great being 2 little girls favorite person in the whole world!
Kristen's stats are:
head- 18 1/2 (off the charts)
height- 28 1/2 (80th percentile)
weight- 21 1/2 (95th percentile)
Yup...still chubby...as if anyone had any doubt!
She's really attempting to crawl these days. Still no teeth ( I love that gummy smile!)
She's trying to pull up on things and can stand really sturdy while holding on to things. says Mamamamama and Dadadadada and Yayayayaya. She likes to see how loud she can get, and let me tell ya, pretty dang loud!
Anyway...We sure to love and enjoy our little Kristen!
