So, we left off last post going into her 9 month checkup. And the results are in. She was 80 percentile in weight (20lb 12oz), 90 percentile in height (29 inches), and 90 percentile in head (I didn't even wanna know the measurements here). So, she is a big beautiful bouncing baby girl! She is doing so well developmentally, her pincher function is beyond precise (big guhl gotta eat), and she is eating and sleeping perfectly :) I'm proud of her. She hardly even cried at all when they gave her a shot. The nurse even commented on it. She was just...over it. Good for mama's heart.
After Char's checkup we decided that her big sister needed one too. Poor Prissy has been neglected since Charleigh entered the picture. She used to get groomed every month, now it's every 3 months. She was ALWAYS up to date on her shots, checkups, frontline, heartguard, etc. Now...well, let's just say, she NEEDED a checkup. It was a normal visit besides the fact that I forgot the stroller AND Prissy's leash. So here I am trying to carry, a huge purse, my soda from lunch (because I just couldn't leave that in the car could I?), a diaper bag, a 20lb kid who grabs EVERYTHING, and a Yorkie who pees when she's scared (and she was scared). I know I got laughed at that day.
So, those two girls weren't the only ones at the doctor this month. Paw Paw had to have ANOTHER neck surgery to fix the plate and screws he had loose. So Char and I headed up to the hospital to make sure he was okay afterwards. She just loves her Paw Paw, he was half asleep and doped up (not to mention in pain) and couldn't be his usual animated self but nonetheless, Charleigh just lit up and when she saw Paw Paw anyway. The nurse who was in the room with us kept sayin, "Do he keep her? She love him!" hahaha!
So, then it was Father's Day! Justin's first day as a real life DADDY! Unfortunately, it started out with our Air Conditioner going out for the 11th time (no I am NOT exaggerating). So, Dad wasn't having the best day. He got some workout equipment that he'd been asking for and a handmade card from Charleigh...she is so darn crafty. We love our Daddy. He is so good to us. Works so hard every day, even when he doesn't want to. Provides everything we could ever need and still manages to love on us when he gets home. This day was a thankful day in my heart. It makes me sad that we were running around so much and didn't take a picture of Charleigh and her Daddy this day. But, here's a video instead :)
We headed out to Chumuckla to spend the rest of Father's Day with Justin's dad. It was nice and "cool" there :)
Due to our AC problems we spent several nights at Big Mama's house (praise the lord). They came out and fixed the problem and the next morning, it broke again (12th time), they decided (finally) that we needed a new unit (duh). So they spent the WHOLE next day replacing our entire Air conditioner and we were relieved (broke) to have cool air and then, the next morning...it broke AGAIN! Oh AC gods, what did we do to deserve this? After another trip out, they seemed to have fixed the problem. We have air...for now.
The next week was VBS at Olive. Charleigh got to spend every morning that week at Big Mama's house! I came in to get her one day and she would NOT come to me...I threatened to end their playdates if this behavior continued...Big Mama is not willing to let that happen. Anway, VBS was a country/western theme so I was glad to wear my pig tails and straw hat. But I realized that I was in desperate need of some cowgirl boots! I've been wanting them for a darn long time...they were even on my Christmas list (which I did not get obviously). So. I did some shopping around and here are my new AWESOME boots! Somewhere in there we managed to throw a big UFC party at our house. We invited all the boys from the children's home and you could tell they enjoyed being "grown up" with the big boys...talkin bout fightin and stuff. But, I'm so glad Kristen, Krista, and Ashley were here to keep me company.
Let's move on to the 4th of July!It was on a Sunday this year so I knew Charleigh and I would be out and about together so...I made us matching outfits! You call it corny, I call it AWESOME! (Daddy wasn't on board with the polka dotted shorts I planned to make him...I don't blame him).
Here's the bow I made for Char. It was my first time using the korker ribbon (you have to cook that stuff to get it curly) and I think it looked like fireworks...maybe.
Coming up for the Tyners: Our trip to Atlanta, Braves game, and Audrey's wedding!
