I have to say that I didn't actually write that post on March 05, I started to work on it but couldn't finish it until March 30 so the timeline makes more sense. But that isn't the reason for the amendment, the real reason for the amendment is that I stated that Karis did not have any teeth and well she got her first tooth yesterday. My girl is tough because she did not complain at all, no fowl mood, just a little bit of a diaper rash and a lot of slober. Thats why we were caught off quard. My little toothless suzi is now a toothy lucy!

8 months

I can't believe she is 8 months, boy time just flies by. Enjoy every moment because it goes so fast!!! All she wants to do is walk or stand . I never crawled and went straight to walking so we think she is going to follow in my footsteps (no pun intended ok maybe a little intended ;-) She can only walk if we are holding her hands, she can't walk on her own yet but I say in the next months she will be. She just starting to get into position for crawling but she rather walk. She is a jatter box especially when it is time to go to sleep, she loves Bella and wants to pet Dutch (Graham's cat) all the time. She still has no teeth, her hair is finally growing, she has little wisps around her ears. She adores her dadda and I think Graham was born to be a father, he is so amazing with her. He lives for her! Here are some pictures of her over the last couple of months:

I love the one below, that smile just encompasses her essence.

Yes, its her middle finger but she has no clue, but this picture shows the hair she is getting. I love the picture below because I am usually the one behind the camera and so I finally get a picture with my sweet pea.

I just read Marley and Me and the dog so reminds me of Bella but this picture just makes me think about the relationship between a dog and the children in their lives. I love this picture.

Karis has been such a joy, and such a wonderful daughter. She is always happy and such an easy going baby. She makes be proud day after day, hour after hour and minute after minute. She is such a blessing, my life is forever changed.

6 months

I know I skipped a month but 5 months was on Christmas Eve. The last two months have gone by so fast and Karis is changing every day. We are soo loving this stage right now, she is extremely interactive, making sounds and laughing at us but she doesn't talk back yet! She is sort of mobile, she rolls over and she is pushing her butt in the air to get ready to crawl. We had to start her on rice cereal 2 weeks ago because she was not sleeping through the night, one night she got every hour and half. Rice cereal has done the trick! Graham loves feeding her, she goes wild when he comes around with a bowl.

We still can't believe that she is going to be six months, thats half a year! It feels so sureal because it has gone by so quickly that putting it the context of a year it really makes us step back and go, whooo.

Oh well I wanted to check in and give a little update but honestly, long posts aren't going to happen a lot because I much rather be spending time with my wonderful, amazing daughter.

4 Months

On Monday, Karis turned four months. It's hard to believe. She rolled over for the first time on Nov. 8th and now we can't stop her from rolling. She is holding her head up strong and trying to sit up sometimes. I don't have my camera here to download pictures but she getting bigger and more beautiful as the days go on. Some people say she looks just like me when I was little and some say she looks just like Graham. My mom has decided that Graham and I must have looked a lot a like when we were babies (I am not sure how to take that :-) She without a doubt has my blue eyes and Graham's nose. We see signs of red in her hair so we think she might have strawberry blond hair like Graham.

I hear my baby crying so I must go but I hope all is well in blogland. If I don't write, I hope everyone will have a great Christmas!

3 months, 1 year and eternity

Karis turned 3 months on the 24th, she is growing so fast but she is learning everyday and doing new things that it makes it a little easier to deal with it. Here is some recent pictures:

I know I am very late but last month on the 15th of September Graham and I celebrated our 1 year. A lot has happened in this past year, within the first month of marriage I became pregnant so not only did Graham had to get use to dealing with a wife that is adjusting to marriage but an hormonal one at that. Then after getting pregnant, Graham lost his job 7 months later and then hurt his back at the next job. We have grown and learned a lot together. I wouldn've done it with anyone else. Sorry, we don't have a picture for our anniversary.

On September 21, Karis was baptized (thats the eternity part :-) ) It was really funny, we were standing at the front with her Godparents and the pastor when to open the baptismal font to sprinkle here with the holy water and there was no bowl or water, everyone cracked up laughing. Then after that for every baptism at church they all made a joke about having water. Here is a picture, she wore my baptismal dress:

Yikes, I have taken to long and my baby needs me. Sorry, can't write much more talk to you guys again soon.

Karis' first play date

I have a really good friend that was due 5 days after me, we laughed that it would be funny if we were in the hospital at the same time. Guess what! Guess who showed up ready to have her baby just after I had given birth to Karis. She had a boy, named Ethan. Here is a picture of Karis and Ethan at there first play date. I love how Karis is smiling, and Ethan is like what is this creature beside me.
