8 & 9 Months

These last two months have flown by even faster than before! Since we've gotten back from vacation, I've been busy with weddings and holiday photo sessions, my grandma was here visiting, we got a puppy (!), and the girls are just growing like weeds! I realized I never posted Samara's 8 month pictures so here is 8 & 9 together. She's reached quite a few milestones in the last two months and before you know it she will be ONE!! Geez, time moves too fast! Anyway, here are her 8 month pictures first:

In the last two months she has finally gotten her first tooth! And another one is very close behind. She's also mastered crawling and has taken to pulling herself up and cruising along the furniture. She will also stand by herself for quite some time if you put her there. I'm pretty sure she will be walking within the next few months, probably sooner than A did, and most definitely before her first birthday! She continues to sleep through the night, going down around 6:30 and wakes up between 6:30-7:00 the next morning. Most days she naps at 9, 1 and 3:30 but recently has been dropping her last nap. This girl can eat (just like her sister did) and loves being able to feed herself. We're not sure exactly how much she weighs but around 17lbs is what we're thinking. She's small like A was but definitely longer...she can fit in 6mo pants but they're too short on her. These 9mo pictures are all from my phone...apparently I haven't used my camera on them in a while :/

She's still the happiest baby I've known, always smiling, even when she's cranky. Lately she's been giving us some 'tude which I'm sure she's learning from her sis, but hopefully she stays mellow, because I don't know if I can handle TWO divas! Hahaha. Samara, you continue to be a constant source of joy in our lives. You really do light up a room and make someone happy just by looking at you. I can't imagine what life was like without you. We love you so much, love bug, more than you'll ever know!

Fall Back

Well, life has sure been busy lately. I feel like ever since the time change there aren't enough hours in the day anymore! The girls now get up at an awful hour of the morning (yes, 6am is too early!) and are ready to go once they're awake. We've been keeping busy with our new puppy, Bruno, who I might add is very really is like having another child around the house. The girls love him and B is thrilled we finally have a Boston. Me, well, I'm not quite as enamored as the rest of the family, but I'll keep him around ;)
Right before Halloween we hit up our local pumpkin patch for our annual dose of pumpkin fun. It was Samara's first patch and she was thrilled to play with the pumpkins. Anayah loved all the slides and rides and even the swing!

 Sadly, I didn't make the family pumpkin patch picture this year...

For Halloween at Anayah's school, everyone dressed up as cowboys/girls. She loved her outfit and was so excited to get to school that morning! That evening we hung out with our good friends the Von Rosens and Anayah and Jack got to dress up and go trick-or-treating together. They were so cute dressed as Jake and Izzy from Jake and the Neverland Pirates (Disney Jr. for those who don't know). Samara wore the infamous bee costume and looked so cute! 
Don't they look so alike here?!
 They wouldn't keep still for a picture together!

I can't believe it's a week before Thanksgiving and I've yet to take any pictures of the family on my camera this month! I've been super busy with holiday photo sessions and working on my new website that I only have my phone pics to document the last few weeks. On top of all of that I've been starting to plan for Samara's first birthday! I know it will be here before we know it. Whew! On that note, I'm off to get some work done while A is in school and S is napping! Until next time...
