Our Kinsey Baby

So it's been quite a while since I actually have been able to sit down and write an update. I've just been so busy that I haven't found the spare time to keep up with the blog. I'm going to try and do better.

To catch you all up on Kinsey I thought I'd do one of those 25 facts thingys. So here it goes:

1. Kinsey is 9.5 mths old.
2. Kinsey started crawling at almost 8 mths.
3. Kinsey started climbing as soon as she figured out crawling and has had many bumps cuz she didn't know she needed to hold on.
4. Kinsey started walking at exactly 9 mths and is getting very good.
5. Kinsey said "Mom" for the 1st time on Mother's Day and now when she wants me to pick her up hangs on my leg and says "mom mom mom".
6. Kinsey has been waving bye bye since Easter (about 7.5 mths old). But she doesn't do the typical baby wave. She does a princess wave - like what you'd see in a parade. It's adorable.
7. Kinsey weighs 18lbs 10oz and is 28.5" long. Yes she's very tall.
8. She's a cat napper. (Enough said!)
9. She loves to eat and will eat any food I give her.
10. She has no eye color. They are kinda grey and kinda green and kinda nothing. No one knows. I put hazel on her passport cuz I didn't know.
11. She loves her bath. When the water is running she tries to undress herself.
12. She only has her two bottom teeth and she's had those since she was 6 mths.
13. She loves books. She loves to pull them out and flip through them but really loves when I read them to her.
14. She is chatty. Always jibber-jabbing away.
15. She makes the funniest faces -- you remember the video. Her new one is this wrinkled up nose one. It's cute.
16. She no longer plays strange. She'll go to most people now.
17. She'll sing with me. I'll sing the ohh & ahh part from the song Last Kiss (you know it right?) and she'll copy me. It's so dang cute.
18. She LOVES dogs. Especially Diesel. He makes her giggle forever and he loves her too. Won't leave her alone.
19. If Daddy goes outside she has to go with him. And if she can't go, like when he's leaving for work, she'll have a meltdown.
20. Kinsey is still nursing but will also take a bottle. I just wish she would try and hold her own bottle.
21. She has this crazy attachment to her blankie - this just started two weeks ago.
22. She's an amazing traveller - loves her carseat. I'm not sure why I even bothered to worry about the flight to Vegas.
23. Kinsey loves to drop things from her high chair or out of the shopping cart for Mommy to pick up. She thinks it's a fun game.
24. She loves folded laundry. The pile of clothes doesn't interest her -- just the folded ones.
25. Her favorite thing...a cell phone. Always wants a cell phone. Why do we even bother buying real toys?

And that's our Kinsey. She's a bit of a ham, super noisy, crazy busy, and a bundle of fun. Man, my life must have been boring before her. She is entertaining...to say the least. Her daddy and I love her so much!
