Update o la!!

Aside from 4 teeth popping in, Joey has been up to a lot!  She has decided that rolling isn't the fastest way to get to things, so she is now ARMY CRAWLING!!!  And just before her 9 month check up too!  She is also pulling up on a lot too!  She is loving anything that lights up and is motivated to crawl over, scale up, or roll over anything and anyone to get the things that light up.  She has just enough hair to put in a teeny tiny bow (pictured below).  


said bow :)


Gotta love the hat, and slippers negated by the drool which keeps her cold!  She's so cute though!

I like to let her taste things...here she is trying a fudge pop!  Super funny :)

Well, that's it for now.  Joey turned 9 months last Thursday, but her 9 month check up is Monday.  I can't wait to see how tall she is, and how much she weighs!  With all the new foods she has been eating, she is sure to have grown :)  I will keep ya'll updated!

What's up with the Stouts?

Haven't written in a while, so here's what's happening!  Not much!  Joey is still teething....they have not popped in yet, but all her symptoms are still here, and I can't wait for her teeth to come already!  She is getting closer to crawling, and can pull up pretty much on her own!   She eats Cheerios :)

Johnny and I are doing well...being parents has changed us!  Our priorities are different for sure.  For New Year's Eve we went to my Best Bud's house, left at 10:30 and we were asleep by 11.  Lame!!!!!  When we aren't out livin' it up, you can find us at home playing the Wii :)  We just got some new games, and are having a blast playing with friends and together!  Rock Band is awesome, Mario Kart is the bomb, DDR is a workout, and Outdoor Adventure has been a nice surprise!  

That's about it!  I will write more when exciting things happen.  Thanks for tuning in :)

The Joys of Teething ........

So I am so ready for these teeth of Joey's to come in already!  Joey has been fussy lately, and for any of you who know our child, that's not like her at all!  She's been tugging at her ears, chewing on her hands, drooooooooling, pooping a lot, and more!  I looked up the symptoms for teething and she has all the things she has been doing are symptoms of teething! She has these symptoms plus after reading the article, I noticed that her gums are swollen too :(  She went to bed tonight at 7........hopefully she will sprout some toofers over night!  Here's hopin!  Until then, let's remember the happy times.....here's a pic from Christmas!!!
