Hannah @ 9 months

Weight: 21.11 lbs 92%
Length: 29" 89%

She did get 2 shots at this appointment - Hep B and Polio - since she missed them at 6 months.

^^^ 3 examples of her head tilt, though she doesn't do it much anymore ^^^

^^^ We go to the Farmer's Market every Saturday. This particular day was extra hot so we cooled down with some Italian Ice and water ^^^

^^^ Kristina and me. A lady in our ward got a bunch of us free screening passes to see "Austenland." It was a lot of fun and a funny movie. ^^^

^^^ date night to Outback Steakhouse ^^^

^^^ I'm the new ward organist. I've never played before so it's been a challenge, but has stretched me and helped me grow. ^^^

^^^ Hannah loves her bath sponges. When they fill with water she sucks each one till they're dry ^^^

^^^ Found her like this one day asleep holding onto the rails. It breaks my heart when she stands up and cries. ^^^

^^^ sick again! On Aug 9th we took her in because she had labored breathing. They gave her some medicine to help with her congestion and sent us home with a nebulizer. The loud humming put her right to sleep ^^^

^^^ our friends Paul and Peggy came to visit! Ryan and Paul golfed everyday ^^^

 ^^^ we went to a DBacks game ^^^

^^^ Tried to get a good photo of her like I do each week, but she wouldn't sit still. She officially started crawling on Aug 4th ^^^

^^^ I just couldn't resist. We saw lots of this when she was sick because she hates when we clean out her nose . You can kinda see her tooth popping through. It showed up the same week she started crawling. ^^^ 

^^^ I love taking pictures of her sleeping ^^^

^^^ Her first official baseball hat. Daddy let her wear it before his softball game ^^^

^^^ She doesn't fall asleep in my arms anymore so I treasured this rare moment and snuggled her for over an hour till she woke up ^^^

^^^ Ryan turned 30! We celebrated with an ice cream cake ^^^

She loves to stick her fingers in my mouth. When I bite down she laughs. She also laughs at the cats when they're chasing the laser and when I mop the floor, and when she sees a video of herself laughing. My favorite time with her is right after nursing. She will lay in my arm and let me rub her face and she just coos. She loves our phones. We raised the crib rail because she started to pull up and look over the crib. When she's happy or excited she flail her arms up and down and right before i feed her she'll slap her hands on the highchair tray. Anytime she holds paper she'll flip it over and over in her hands examining it. She loves Baby Einstein.

Our trip to San Diego

Ryan's brother, Aaron, invited us to go to San Diego with them. I've never been before and am not one to turn down a vacation. It was short notice so we took Hannah with us. Although we would've loved to leave her with a sitter, we didn't have time or means to do so.They were getting away for their 5 year anniversary and Ryan had just turned 30 a few days before . We'd been told it was only a 3 or 4 hour drive from Phoenix but it ended up being 6. They fly for free since he works for Delta, so they flew in Tuesday and we met them Thursday Aug 22. Once we got there we ate at Cafe Coyote then drove straight to the Zoo. We had a bunch we wanted to see and only 3 days. The zoo was huge! We didn't get to see everything before it got dark. Hannah did so well. She was out way past her bedtime each night but she didn't even get fussy. She'd fall asleep in the car on the way home. It took quite a bit to get her back to sleep at the hotel, but we survived. The animals were all out and it was fun to see the hippos in the water.

The next day we spent all our time at SeaWorld. I'd never been there and don't quite know what Iwas expecting, but it was awesome. We planned out the day so we could see all the shows we wanted. It was very hot, which was a surprise for me. I was expecting a vacation from the heat. We all got sunburned, even Hannah. I felt so bad. It was a lot of fun and the animals are incredible. It's amazing what they can do.

The next morning we went to the USS Midway and took a tour. It said to plan on 3 hours, but it could definitely take longer if you listened to all the audio. Ryan and Aaron loved it, but Jessica and I were trying to hurry them along. It was too narrow for strollers so we had to carry Hannah the whole time. At 20+ pounds it was tough. She didn't like being in the Bjorn most the time either and was pretty fussy. The ship was cool though and it would be hard to be in there for so long. I wonder what the ships nowadays are like.

We met up with Aaron's mission companion afterwards and ate lunch at Seaport village. We enjoyed the stroll and the amazing views.

We went inside several stores and bought a commemorative Christmas ornament. Aaron and Jessica bought these for us and they were amazing. So tasty.

From there we drove to Petco Park and watched a good game of baseball.

They handed out free hats which was helpful since our seats were looking directly into the sun for the first hour or so. We were on the first row though which was great for Hannah. She could crawl around on the ground and was happy just chewing up the program and eating her snacks. It got pretty cold after the sun went down so we had to pull out our sweaters.

We stayed at the Embassy Suites and they had the most amazing breakfast. We really looked forward to eating our made-to-order omelet every morning. Like any vacation it wasn't long enough, but we had a blast!
