These pictures were taken about 2 months ago by photographer here in the KC area. I think she really captured each one perfectly.

9 months...so big!

Our pretty girl got her first cold complete with a horrible runny nose this week. She loves sitting in her highchair so she can "watch" us better. One of her favorite toys is her toy keys.

Ryan put her headband on like Rambo. :)

I cannot imagine my life without this precious girl! She gives us so many smiles each day.
She is getting bigger each week and is lately growing a lot of hair-that seems to have a red tint.
She is sitting all on her own and loves to play with toys as she is sitting. I think she is about 16 pounds and will go to the pediatrician this week to find out her exact weight.
She is so verbal and loves the sounds /g/, /m/,/b/. She is a drool bug, too.
We love you, our big girl!!

KSU game

We were cheering for the Cats last night.

Last weekend

Last weekend, Grandpa Ranny (Randy) and Grandma Deb. We had so much fun with them.

They came in so Ryan and I could be part of The Nascar Nation!!
 Jenny and I with our "Pit Passes"
So apparently...you sign the finish line--so here I am signing.

Jenny signing the finish line

Oh, yes...the loud and noisy cars!

It was so fun and even a better time spending the day with Ryan and friends.

Video of Carter making Ella laugh

Carter is such a  WONDERFUL big brother! They are just starting to play together and interact more. Carter loves to make Ella laugh!
