Happy 9 months!

Happy 9 months to our sweet baby girl Brooke!  We can't believe she'll be ONE in three months.  That is just crazy.  Brooke had a fabulous December!  She loved Christmas and all her new toys.  She got to meet Santa!! It was great for her to see all her grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews, and nieces!  She got sick the day after Christmas for a week.  That wasn't any fun....major stomach virus plus her top 2 teeth coming in!

9 Month Stats
- She weighed 19 lb, 6 oz when she went to the doctor last week when she was sick.  She goes Monday for her 9 month check up

- Officially in 12 month clothes

- Wears size 3 diapers but I'll be ordering size 4 next time.  She already wears size 4 for her nighttime diapers.

- Sleeping 11 1/2 hours consistently and takes a morning nap and good afternoon nap

- We've discovered she hates certain noises.  For example, when people cough or sneeze real loud, the sound of a donkey (she has a Farm Animal book), Ben's drill, this Virginia Tech choo choo  sound....
