Mother's Day

So I know Mother's Day was awhile ago, but we've been busy moving into an apartment and settling in I haven't had time to post much. We moved Mother's Day weekend, as you can see from the photos.
My lovely flowers

Beauty among the mess of moving

My first Mother's Day gift! An avocado tree! I can't wait until we get our house built and we can plant it.

We had planned to do a picnic outside but it rained about all weekend so we picnicked in our living room instead.

We let Anneliese sit on the floor picnic style with us

But the girl loves tomatoes too much and kept grabbing them biting
 into it and promptly grabbing and stuffing another one into her mouth before she finished the first one.

And my other Mother's Day gift, super sweet memento necklace.
This was the first Mother's Day that I've been excited about and looked forward to since my mom died, and I had such a great day thanks to Matthew and Anneliese. They did a great job loving on me.

9 Months

Fun Facts:
- Enjoys "petting" the animals, when in reality she just pulls their fur out
- Can blow a raspberry 80% of the time now!
- Likes to blow kisses, or makes the kissy noise with her mouth when she wants a kiss
- Favorite foods: refried beans, pasta, watermelon, spaghetti sauce
- Doesn't like to sleep in (unfortunately for us) and is awake between 5:30-6 am now
- Waves hello and sometimes will say 'Hi' while waving
- Graduated to a proper crawl, she's been arming crawling since 6 months
- Loves having more space to explore in the new apartment
- Gets really exited about bath time and has so much fun playing during bath
- Still not sure what her eye color is
- Celebrated our first mother's day together

And the outtakes, so many of them now that she won't stop moving:
Walter enjoys posing for the test photos

This happens every month so I decided to let you see the pictures of it happening
Happy nine months baby girl! Hard to believe that you'll be one soon.
