So everyone needs to stop telling Joey how cute she is!  She's getting a big head, literally! We went to the doctor today for her 6 month check up and her head went from 20th percentile to 48th percentile!!!  Wow :)  Her Length is 2'1" (4 more inches and she will be 1/2 my size :), and her weight is 14lbs 9oz.  She did really well at the doctor, and Johnny and I refused the Flu shot for her!  We never get the shot, and decided that she doesn't need it either!  Our doc left us with some assignments.  By the time we come back in 3 months, she needs to be able to stand up, eat cheerios, can't remember if there was anything else??  Anyway, Joey is a happy healthy baby!  Praise the Lord :)  Happy Halloween!

A Toofer!

Wow, I'm up to 50 posts!!!  OK, on with the update :)  Usually a twofer is a deal where you get 2 for the price of 1.  In the Stout house, it is the name of Joey's new teeth :)  And I quote..."Joey, you're getting a new toofer."  end quote!  This is me talking of course!  I will post pics as soon as she lets us see her teeth long enough to get it on camera!

Imaginary Friend :)

So I didn't think that Joey would have an imaginary friend at the the ripe old age of 5 1/2 months, but apparently she does. How do I know??? I got tipped off Sunday night when she woke up at 2:30am and proceeded to talk at the top of her little lungs to something in her room. She was laughing and having a great time, so I came to the conclusion that she has a new friend to catch up with. My hunch was solidified this morning at 4:30 am, when she decided to strike up a conversation the top of her lungs. I went into check on her and she was at the bottom of her crib (we have her mattress on a tilt because she has allergies) sucking her thumb and talking to no one. I fixed her in her bed and told her to go back to sleep :) She didn't listen (big surprise), and proceeded to discuss matters further with her pal. I decided that she would be ok, so I turned off the monitor in our room so that we could get the last 2 hours of sleep that we so desperately needed. Off whet the monitor, and we could still hear her just jibber jabbering away at the other end of our house. "At least she's not crying" Johnny said, and we both dosed back to bed. We shall see if this becomes a trend, and if Joey's imaginary friend shows up tonight! Here's hoping that he/she doesn't :)

Sweet time with the Lord......

So this week as a step of faith, I have committed to pray in my car from Miss Holli's house (Joey's babysitter) all the way to work.  It is about a 15 minute drive, and when I originally thought to do this, I thought there would be a lot of dead space. What would I pray for, who would I pray for, and what if I miss something really good on Kiss FM????  These were the questions running through my head!   Turns out that this sweet time with our Lord has made me think of each and every one of my friends, family and coworkers.  I have been prying for each of you in a general sense, and would love some specifics!  Even now not knowing what some of you need prayer for, the time flies with God, and I am yearning for more!  I have a great time chatting it up to Him in the car while people next to me think I'm singing along with the radio or something!  I find myself sitting in my car hanging out with Him till the very last minute before I need to be inside EWA.  Please send me any and all prayer requests you might have this week!  I will lift them up for sure :)  Thanks be to God!!!!  Here is a picture of someone I've been praying for!!  Enjoy!

Eureka....I have found it!!

So I am constantly reminded that my daughter is Johnny's daughter..........She looks like him, has his feet, expressions, blood type and more .  We always get told that she is a Johnny Stout looking Baby (to quote my good friend Debbie)(not that this is a bad thing!!!! ).  Well finally today I caught a glimpse of me in our baby!  We just got a new bouncy seat toy for Joey yesterday.  We put the height of the foot rest at it's shortest.  She still can't touch the floor!!!!!!  She's mine too!!!  I'm short, she's short :) It's our thing :)
