Turning in Circles

Well I have tried many times to catch Mallory in the act of running around in circles in her Johnny Jump Up but it hasn't worked. Now she actually uses it to jump in (somewhat). But here is a video of what she normally does (spins in circles). At least Josh and I know that she'll love all the fun rides at Worlds of Fun when she is older.

Mallory is Mobile

Last weekend Mallory and I went to Illinois for my grandmother's 80th Birthday. Unfortunatlly my camera died and I didn't get to take many pictures...but here are a few.

Grandma Bidney inticing Mallory w/ some balloons. She was very facinated by them.

Uncle Drew helping Mallory walk

Aunt Marcy (Drew's girlfriend) holding Mallory

Here are some of the kids of BFSG

Mallory getting into her toys...it doesn't happen very often, usually she is getting into something she shouldn't.

Look at that smile.

If you haven't guessed it yet she is CRAWLING!!! Here she is getting ready to take off. Luckily she hasn't headed for the stairs yet but we will have to put the gate up soon. Also she has started clapping. It is so cute. I'll have to try and get some video of it and post it.

Happy Valentine's Day

Well unfortunately I lost my camera for a couple of days so I don't have any pictures of Mallory in her super cute V-day outfit...but I will soon because I found the camera:) I just want to take a moment and wish my grandmother and Aunt Sandy a Happy Birthday (they were both born on Valentine's Day...how lucky can you be to have your birthday on a holiday and then give birth to your own child on your birthday which is a holiday). My grandmother turned 80 this year...she still has another 20 years of spit-fire in her:) So Mallory and I will be making a solo journey to visit Oma and grandma for a big 80th b-day party.

Not much has been happening lately. Since we have gotten quite a bit of snow we have been staying inside...that and it's only been like 20 outside (it was 6 when I got home tonight).

On Wednesday breastfeeding group was cancelled so I invited some of the girls over to make the afternoon go by quicker.

Here is Mallory and Jack...it looks like Mallory is about to smack the crap out of him but she is more interested in pulling his glasses off. I'm sure you will be seeing a lot of Jack and Hailey (she is in the brown pants). They live right down the street from Barb's and Jack is a couple months younger then Mallory...they get along great.

Look at how innocent they look:)

Mallory standing...she is pulling up a lot more and walking (with assistance). She will crawl but only when she is really PO'd

Mallory and Jack at BFSG last week

Jack jumping on Mallory:)

Some of the babies of the booby club:) L to R: Jack, Mallory, Lucy, Preston and Ethan

Mallory in her Johnny Jump Up...Which she doesn't' ever jump in it...she either cries or runs around in circles. The other day there was a dirty laundry basket w/in her reach...she was running around w/ a pair of my dirty underwear in her hands. She thought it was pretty funny. I keep trying to get video of her running around in circles (it's pretty funny) but it turns out too dark...but I'll keep trying.

Mallory is doing much better w/ her cold. She still has a runny nose but isn't coughing anymore. She had her 9 mo checkup today and is doing very well. I didn't grab the sheet that says the % for her age (sorry). She is 26 inches long and weighs 16 lbs 8 oz...so she is doing great. I asked Dr. Lively about a flour/gluten allergy and he said to just keep her away from it as much as we could until she is a year old. In case you didn't know she breaks out in hives if she eats any type of product that has flour/gluten like biscuits, crackers, teething biscuits, etc. We have been trying to make sure we only give her things that have rice flour or oat flour...she loves Cheerios and it seems to be doing the trick...she hasn't had any breakouts. Dr. Lively said that if there is an allergy to flour/gluten in the family the we might have to wait until she is 2 to introduce those types of foods. So I need to look into our family history.

She is a happy and healthy baby so we are very grateful for that. I'll post some V-day outfit pictures soon:)

We've Been BUSY!!!

Well the Sutton household has been a busy one. Right after we got married we started packing up our things so we could move in w/ Nana B:) We are going to live w/ her and save some money for a house. So w/ the wedding and moving finally out of the way I have some time to do an update.

Last time I weighed Mallory, she finally hit the 16 lb mark. We have a dr appointment on the 15th so I'll be able to see how many inches she has grown. We have been missing out on playgroup and breastfeeding group because we have been so busy packing, etc.

This past weekend I decided to get a sinus infection and poor Mallory has it now. She has been coughing and her nose is running. I've been giving her medicine but she just wants to cling to mom.

Here are some pictures pre and post wedding:

I bought this cute feather thing for her hair...of course she tore it up/ate it before I even got it try it out on her in public.

Mallory loves snow just like her mama

Here is Mallory checking out the view from a different angle in her crib:)

Rolling around in all of 'her' new presents (presents from the wedding).

Josh and I taking it easy the day after the wedding...Mallory is still rolling around in presents.

One of the agreements for the move is that my parents would watch Nacho (our cat) while we lived w/ Nana. So here is Mallory saying good-bye. Nacho is adjusting well to living w/ my parents...they have two other cats that keep him in line:)

Here Mallory is practicing her new trick...watch the video below:)

Of course we had to lower the bed when we moved so that she doesn't try and crawl out. Speaking of crawling...she still isn't. She does rock but she would much rather be on her feet walking around (w/ assistance)...so who knows if she'll ever crawl.
