No title. Just cute

Messy food taste better!
Is there more?
Tomorrow Elizabeth will be 10 months old.  I'm trying to remember what was happening in my pregnancy last year at this time.  I beleive my siatic nerve was starting to act up and my feet were beginning to swell.  It was the beginning of the end.  I was also enjoying wonderful showers with family and friends.  Hmmm...

Last weekend my parents visited.  It was great.  I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall while my Dad and Mom tried to get Elizabeth to dance.  They took care of Elizabeth while I worked Friday.  They did so many helpful and wonderful things and we can't thank them enough.  Hopefully the first rhubarb upside down cake of the year helped them feel rewarded.  Elizabeth wanted nothing to do with the cake, but she did like sampling some of the Easter candy G&G T brought her.

After church and guess who is tired?

This is a really fun shirt Grandma!

I'm going to get you!
Anyway, Marc has been out of town for work this week.  It gives Elizabeth and me lots of girly time, but I am exhausted.  Elizabeth still has a bottle at night, any where from 1:30 am to 5:00 am.  That wouldn't be a big deal, except she doesn't like to go back to sleep after a bottle.  She ends up sleeping in our bed.  Funny how that little cutie can snore!
I got the Fleet Farm ad!

Like Aunt Alison says,
"If Fleet Farm doesn't have it, I don't need it!"
Elizabeth and I are taking our first solo road trip this weekend to Moorhead.  We're very excited to see some of my college friends, including my roommate Karena and her daughter, Alyson who was born a week after Elizabeth.  Wish us luck!

9 Month Appointment & Easter

Hoppy Easter!

Eating popcorn with Daddy!

Elizabeth had her 9 month checkup on Good Friday, the 3.  She is 17 lbs 14 oz and 25 inches long.  The Doctor said she is doing great.  Elizabeth is over her double ear infection.  Thank goodness.  It was almost impossible to get her medicine in her!  She is really good at blowing raspberries and could blow her liquid meds across the room.  I'm over my sinus infection too so things are much more fun at our house than last week.
Hanging with Great Grandpa.  Love the over-alls!
We also went to church on Good Friday.  Elizabeth was one of very few if not the only baby at the afternoon service.  She did love hearing her voice echo during the slient time so we ended up in the crying room.  Sunday morning we attended the early service.  She liked to talk during that service too, but there were oodles of kids there and I think they were all talking to each other.  After church we went to Grandma & Grandpa Wilson's and had Easter dinner.  Elizabeth got to spend time with two of her Great Aunts, Great Grandpa Finley, Uncle Luke and Cousins Aidan & Clara as well as Grandma and Grandpa.

After Easter Sunday Service. 
Someone needed a nap! She still is so cute!!
