Sophia's 9 Month Check up

Yesterday Sophia had her 9 month appointment. She has grown so much in the last 9 months. She is now 18lbs 3oz, which puts her in the 34th% and is 28inches long. That puts her in the 60th% for height. Other than that she is good. They are pleased with her trying to walk and standing up for a couple seconds to a minute by herself. She got some cream to put under her eye because she is rubbing it raw from this cold and that's what she does when she gets tired. She just rubs her eye to pieces and her ears. We also got some zyrtec to see if that will help her cold/allergies. If she isn't better in a week or so I need to bring her back in. This cold has been lingering around for the past 2 1/2 weeks. Keegan has it too, so I am pretty sure it isn't allergies. No shots this time which was great! However, her doctor kept trying to push the H1N1 shot on me to get for her. I just kept telling her Keegan had it and no one else in our house got it. I don't really want her to get it. We go back in April for her 12 month appointment. I still can't believe she is almost a year old! It is so crazy how fast a year can fly! It seems like you are pregnant forever and then the first year goes by so fast!

Christmas and the last couple of months

I don't even know where to begin! I had kind of been taking an internet break. I was on checking emails and facebook but that was about it! But I am back! I realized just how many people keep up with the blog even if they aren't following it and look forward to reading how things are going with us. I am sorry that I have been gone for so long and I won't let it happen again! Things get so busy sometimes and well...we all know how that goes.

Anyway, let's see the last time I posted it was November. But I don't think I updated on October and my mom and grandma's visit either. I think this post will just be a quick update and I will do a post of pictures for each month that I missed.

Like I said, my mom and grandma came out at the end of October! We had a great time going to DC and Baltimore and just hanging out! We also went trick or treating and shopping at Ikea! I LOVE that store!

October I also started my job and that is going pretty well. Some late nights but I like what I do! Keegan also finished his 100 books at school! We had to read 100 books and color a chart for him to bring back! Our goal was to get it done before Christmas break and we did! I am so proud of him!

November, Chad's dad and step dad came to visit for Thanksgiving. We had a good time. I had to work most of the nights they were here, but during the day we were able to spend time together and even made it to the Baltimore Aquarium. We have a membership so we try to get there as much as we can. Sophia also had her first MAJOR owie! She crawled into the kitchen as I was checking on my pumpkin pie and burned her hand! I rushed her to my work and they got her all fixed up and it didn't even phase her!

December brought LOTS of snow to Annapolis and when I say lots I mean 22 inches of snow in 1 day!!! It was CRAZY! Being from Wisconsin and know what it is like when it snows, people here are crazy! And they don't know how to plow! It snowed Friday night and Saturday and they canceled school Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because they don't know how to clean the roads! We also headed out to WI for Christmas! I think I will do a whole post just on our trip because it was so busy! We had a great time and it is always nice to spend time with our families. Sophia came home with her first cold.

That brings us to the first 4 days of January! We got home from Wisconsin yesterday and came home to frozen pipes, even though we left the heat on in the house! We were beyond mad and tired! It had been a long day of driving!

Today Chad and I have been married 8 years! Seriously?!?! Has it really been that long? It still seems likes yesterday! We have gone from the 2 of us to a family of 4 plus 2 dogs! Who would have thought this is the path we would be on! I wouldn't give it up for the world!

I think that recaps enough for now of the last couple of months! Keegan is in bed already, Sophia is just about there and I think I hear it calling my name. Tomorrow you can look forward to tons of new pictures...and if you are lucky some videos too!!

Jobs, Stairs, and Fun!

We have had a busy last couple of days! Starting last week, I had 2 interviews on Thursday. One I had scheduled with Build-a-Bear Workshop at the mall for Thursday evening. The other one was a phone interview. Nighttime Peds. called to do a phone interview. Both interviews went great. Nighttime Peds. set up another in person interview for Saturday afternoon. I then got a call Friday night already asking if I would like to accept a job at build-a-bear. I told them I would let them know over the weekend. Really I was waiting to see how the one for Nighttime Peds. went. Saturday came around and the interview went great and I was set up to do a job shadow for Monday for the shift that I would be working, which is 430pm to 1230am (but they end up staying there till about 2am when they are really busy). I did that shadow Monday night and it went awesome! Very fast paced and never a dull moment. Nighttime Peds. is an Urgent Care Clinic. The doctors see peds and adult patients too. I am looking at doing the front desk, receptionist stuff. I got a last call back yesterday and set up my final interview for today at 430pm. I am assuming today I will find out if I have the job, which I am pretty confident about.

Then last Friday, one of my best friends in Gulfport, who is from Hershey, PA, called and asked if we wanted to meet her up in Hershey at Chocolate world! It just so happened that Keegan had the day off of school so of course I took her up on the offer! So we drove the hour and half or so up there, had a great time at Chocolate World in Hershey, then Keegan, Sophia and I went to walk around the outlets up there and drove home! Which was HORRIBLE!! With my GPS gone, I had to map quest directions and just figured I would follow them backwards on the way home, BAD IDEA!! We left Hershey at 430 and didn't get home until 7:45 because I got lost! Sophia and Keegan were both crying the car, I was crying! It was the worst!

And the last thing adventure we have had was Sophia falling down the stairs yesterday! I don't know how she got around the gate, but she did and down she went. I just heard thump, thump, thump, a crash and then her start crying!! I as freaking out!!! She has a bump on the back of her head and a little scratch that was bleeding but other than that she is good!

That has been our excitment the last week or so.

My mom and grandma are coming to visit Monday for a week so that will be a lot of fun! Plus Halloween is next week and Keegan has a field trip to the pumpkin patch. I am kind of bummed because I can't go along, but I know he will have a GREAT time.

Oct 15. Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day

Today was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day. A day for families to remember their angels up in heaven.

For those of you who don't know, we lost a little one August 2, 2007. My due date was April 1, 2008. I was 6 weeks pregnant when Chad had to rush me to the ER and we were told there was no fetal pole and that I had lost the pregnancy.

Here we are 2 1/2 years later with our little Sophia. Who knows where we would or how our life would be different if I wouldn't have miscarried, but God does everything for a reason. I just find it ironic that Sophia was born April 1, 2009, on the due date of our angel baby.

I lit a candle tonight at 7pm in for our angel along with other families across the world to set off a wave of light up to heaven.
