The Great Escape

Lilly is 9 months old. I can't believe it. She weighs 18lbs and is 29in long. She is jabbering up a storm and cruising along the furniture. She officially said "Bye Bye" this weekend to her Granny and is saying Momma and Dada. Her favorite food to eat is grapes! She has a fit if you only give her a few and will not eat any other food after you have presented the grapes to her. I guess she has a sweet tooth like her Mom! So, we try to limit the grapes. She loves to have you walk her around the room or house. She also is very much a Momma's girl. She doesn't let me out of her sight very often when it is just the two of us in the house. This month has also been our first month of sickness. She has had several colds and the doctors at Mercy know us by name. I didn't realize I would be at the doctor so much, but I kept worrying about ear infections. She was on the verge of one and she did have to go on her first medicine.

These pictures are of her trying to escape her crib. When she wakes up in the morning she is siting up in bed and is either crying for someone to save her from her prison or she is laughing and playing with her blanket. One morning she got stuck sitting in the corner and when I went in I could tell she just needed help laying back down. I layed her down and she went right back to sleep. This is a fun stage and she is learning so much.

Well, we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for our Lord Jesus Christ and His love for his children by dieing for us so that we could live with him for eternity! We are also thankful for such wonderful family and friends.

New York New York

Central Park in the evening.

China Town fish market. These fish were still moving!

On top of the Met! We had fun touring the wonderful Museum.

Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3.

One of the highlights was seeing Katie Holmes in "All My Sons". We were able to get standing room only tickets which were a lot less expensive. We really enjoyed the show.

Well, Rusty and I went on our first getaway with out sweet little Lillian in October. Our wonderful parents watched Lilly for us and she had a great time playing while we were away. It was such a great time for Rusty and I just to hangout, but we missed her a lot!

We love New York and the city was so beautiful this time of year. We biked central park, took tours of the city, saw Brooklyn, took in some shows, shopped and ate! We did a lot of eating. We even ate at a traditional Korean Restaurant. Very interesting. We actually had to ask the waiter what we were eating. We did take time to watch the OSU vs Texas game! We were the only ones in the restaurant watching that game, but it was still very exciting.

Buzz....I'm a little Bee

Lillian had a lot of fun on Friday for Halloween. She dressed up as a bee and played with her friend Piper...the ballerina. We had lots of trick-or-treaters come to our door. It was perfect weather to get dressed up and go out looking for candy!
