Today our dear Sylvia is 9 months old. We also had her 9 month check up today and the results were great! She weighs 22 lbs 8 oz which puts her at 96%. She is 29 & 5/8 inches tall which puts her at 98%. She's a big girl (as you can see in the picture below). She continues to be our easy to laugh, easy to smile, easy to entertain girl. What a gift God has given us in our beautiful daughter.
It's pretty much been snowing non-stop the past few days. I meant to take Andrew out today to make a snow man, but the snow was too powdery, not the right consistency. But we had fun anyway. When there is almost a foot of snow on the ground, you can always find something fun to do.

With the Car Show coming to Grand Rapids, it was a 'no-brainer' to take Andrew. All day on Friday, he asked when we could go see 'all the cars' :) This boy was in pure heaven when we arrived. He ran from one car to the next saying "let's look at this car," "what kind of car is this?", etc. I had so much fun watching the excitement on his face. Hopefully these pictures captured a bit of his happiness.
Poor Sylvia! Due to a flat spot on the back of her head, she is forced to wear a helmet for the next 2-4 months. We are all still adjusting to her new accessory, but of course still think she is the cutest thing around.
Wait, I can't take it off!
Feeling more confident about her riding moving toys now that her head is protected :)
