9 months baby girl

Ember is really hitting new milestones fast. She is army crawling around the house. She can move from a crawl to sitting up by herself. She can move around at intense speeds. One minute she is by my feet and the next she can be in the other room. 

Miss Ember still has never taken a bottle. She gets drinks through out the day in a big girl cup just like mommy and daddys. Each morning I get up and mix up 24 oz of formula and just make sure she drinks it all by the end of the day. She eats three big meals a day when we sit down as a family. Usually rice cereal mixed with a fruit/veggie and a meat. 

She loves Graham crackers, cheerios, bananas and baby puffs. 

She wakes up each morning smiling and playing in her crib. I often wonder how long she has been awake with out me knowing. 

She cut her first tooth. You can see it popping out of the gums if your really looking up close. I have stuck my finger in there to feel a few times and I don't think I will be doing that anymore. Ouch.... Those little teeth are sharp. 

She is now saying mama and dada. 
She said mama first but as soon as she learned dada she stopped saying mama for a few weeks. 

She sleeps all night. I honestly don't remember the last time I woke up in the night with her. She also takes multiple naps through the day. I have to say we are pretty lucky with her sleep schedule. 

Ember is always melting my heart. Every time she looks up at me with her big blue eyes I just melt. 

10 reasons I love my lover

Hi there. Linking up again for My Husband Rocks with The Growing Tree....

Topic of the day: 10 Little Things that Made you Fall in Love with your Husband

1. So I am not going to lie...One of the first things I fell in love with about Jayson was his shoulder muscles. We were set up on a blind date so I didn't have much expectations going in to it....when he stepped out of his car I about died. He looked like he had football pads on...yum! I knew I loved those shoulders.

2. Then he opened his mouth...everything that came out I soaked up. He was so kind, funny, smart. I loved listening to him talk and how easily our conversations would flow. We could and still can sit and talk (just talk) for hours. 

3. His testimony. O man it shines out of him so bright. He is such a strong follower of Christ. He truly inspires me to be a better person. 

4. The love and respect he has for his family. Very early on when I was first coming around his family I truly loved listening to him talk to his parents. So much respect for them. I knew if he talked to me as kindly as his mother I would be in good hands. 

5. Surprises. I love surprises. They don't have to be gifts, just things that are out of the ordinary. They make my heart skip a beat. Jayson would surprise me at work and take me to lunch. He also leaves me little love letters around the house. Or surprises me with a diet coke if he knows I am having a rough day. 

6. I fell even more in love with him while we were delivering Ty. He knew what to say and how to act. Never left my side and always telling me how proud he was of me. I never could have done it with out him. The look on his face when he saw Ty and became a dad. Made me fall madly in love with him.

7. The way he writes the grocery list....Seriously makes me laugh every time. To stand around and talk with his family is sometimes painful I can laugh so hard. The way they tell stories and add sound effects may make me pee a little. 

8. The fact that we both could sit down and fall asleep to Bob Ross. The best and most relaxing show in the world. Someday we will own a Bob Ross painting... Someday.

9. When he gets mad or irritated with me....For example he just cleaned out the inside of the car not even a week ago and already there is clothes, water bottles, gum wrappers, sunglasses, lip gloss and a few other things on the floor, seat and cup holders. . He doesn't get mad or yell just shakes his head and says "O I love you so much"

10. The special voice he has...The one I have only heard when he is talking to Ember. The way he tickles her nose with his and tells her he loves her. Melts my heart and reminds me why I fell in love with him.

11. I fall in love with him more every day. I love the way we are growing together. The way we are taking on each others attributes. We are becoming better people together. Strengthening each other in our weaknesses and complementing each other in our strengths.
