I know, I know... I haven't posted in a while. In my defense, my dad had open heart surgery, my mom had surgery, and my child sucks the life out of me. Sophie finally had her 9 month well check today... even though she turns 10 months tomorrow. Stupid, I know. She is doing great. 29 inches long, 16 lbs 7 oz. My little string bean just keeps growing. She got one of her flu shots today (since she is little they do half, then the other half a month later) and she did not like it at all. She gave out a scream, then looked at me with such betrayal. It was sad. They also poked her foot to check if she was anemic, she didn't even flinch. She did however take off the bandaid the moment she got the chance.As you can see my little ball of sunshine gets into everything. In her hand she holds one of my Reeses Cups. I hid them from her after she got into them once, but the little turd knows just where I put them now. The moment I go to do something else, she attacks and gets to them. She already has a love for chocolate. Lucky me. She is energetic enough as it is.
Wonderful isn't it? Tomorrow we are going to Denny's work to Trick or Treat. They are taking the kids all around the building to get candy at the workers desks, then there will be a magic show. Then we will either head to WalMart or the Layton Mall. I'm not sure if I will take her around the neighborhood, it might be too cold. Maybe just to a few houses. I will be sure to take loads of pictures though. Just incase you forgot, she is going to be a lion. It fits her personality: opinionated, strong, smart, and just down right cute. :)

My mom and her boyfriend Manuel are here to visit for the next week. We always love seeing them. My dad is doing better, he is moving around and breathing without the oxygen tank. Sophie started standing on her own yesterday, I was so excited. It is only a matter of time until she starts walking. She has a very strong personality, and she gets more independant every day. Like today when we went to K-Mart, she kept wriggling trying to get down on the floor. She doesn't want to be held as much as she used to, but I still get my cuddles in. :) She is exploring every day. Opening food, eating random things off the floor, throwing the DVD remote into the toilet... yea that one just made me giggle. She understands when I don't want her to eat something, I'll hold my hand out and she'll smile and give it to me. Or if she wants to show you something she will hold it up to your face, but you aren't allowed to take it, only look. She has even tried sticking her binky in Denny's mouth a few times. Its silly. She is a very busy girl and keeps me chasing after her. She also LOVES eating big people food. Whenever we have dinner I cut up pieces and put them on her high chair table, and she goes to town. She is a big fan of cheese, green beans, bananas, and strawberries. My little girl is getting so darn big.

My dad went in to get a stent put in his heart, they found out he had a "widowmaker" and needed to operate. What happened is his artery calcified, so they took a vein out of his leg and put it in his heart. He is doing better now. Just wanted to post for the family that reads this. Keep him in your prayers, and I'll keep you updated. He is a bit loopy from the medication they pump into him, but he can cary on a conversation. I just went to see him with Sophie, and he seemed pretty upbeat for just having his body cut open. :P He will be there for a few days, then be home for the next 3 months. So I get to play DOCTOR! He was moved out of the ICU, and into his own room. So he is doing better. You can call me if you want his room number.

I have been constantly saying "mama" to Sophie for about the past week, and it has paid off. In the evening on Sunday, we went to visit Grandma Tina, and Sophie said "mom-mom". We were all so excited she just kept right on saying it. Yesterday Denny was playing with her and was trying to get her to say "dada". She looked right at him, smiled, and said "mom-mom!" I couldn't hold back my giggles. So now we are working on "dada". I love it!

So I did my nanny job for a week, then had to quit. With Sophie having to wake up at 6:30 every morning, she would fall asleep right when we got home. Denny never had any time with her, and none of us liked that. Plus we were all getting crabby from having to wake up so damn early. Now I'm gonna be home all day again, I'll keep looking for jobs, but not really long hours. Or the people can come drop their brats off here. :P Sophie still loves Nemo more than any other movie, she is watching right now. And she loves exploring the house, especially going up the stairs. She has started having nightmares every so often, and it is just the saddest thing in the world. Last night she started screaming out of nowhere and scared the shit out of me. So I picked her up and she didn't stop, I noticed she was still asleep, so I just snuggled her until she calmed down and stopped. Strangest thing ever...
