Chloe’s Ninth Month

Chloe’s ninth month was a very exciting one because she became much more mobile.  She started going from a seated position to laying on her stomach without falling as well as going from her stomach to sitting.  She also began to crawl!  That was such an exciting time for all of us.  She also began saying “dadadadada” which Daddy is very excited about ;)

Chloe got stuck between some furniture at Grandma and Grandpa Nelsen’s house on her 8 month birthday.  A sign that she’s getting more mobile.  (11/22/2010)

While we were up visiting the grandparents for Thanksgiving, we stopped over to Great Grandma’s house to hang out.  (11/23/2010)

We decided to get professional portraits done for Chloe and before we left, we got a few pictures of her in her cute outfit.  Here she is sitting in the same chair that Daddy played with when he was a kid.  (11/24/2010)

Here are the professional pictures that were taken.  (11/24/2010)

Grandpa and Chloe having a fun time.  (11/26/2010)

Chloe begins moving from the seated position to laying down on her tummy with a fair amount of ease for the first time.  (11/30/2010)

We tried giving Chloe a big glass to drink from and by the end of the video, she does get some water, but it goes down the wrong pipe.  (12/02/2010)

Chloe sure loves playing in her Jumperoo.  (12/04/2010)

Chloe loves anything technology related!  (12/04/2010)

We got together with our friends to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Here Chloe is enjoying some play time with Gavin, Jess and Cass (the dog).  (12/05/2010)

Jrome surprised Chloe with a wooden rocking horse that he made.  He did a very nice job on it and it was an awesome gift!  (12/05/2010)

Having fun during bath time.  (12/07/2010)

Again, anything tech related, Chloe wants to get her hands on.  (12/09/2010)

We got together with some friends to watch football and Chloe wanted to have some beer too.  Unfortunately, beer is a little bit different than milk.  (12/12/2010)

Here you can see Chloe getting real close to crawling. She gets up on all fours pretty well and kind of lunges forward. It won’t be too much longer and she’ll be crawling around all over the place.  (12/13/2010)

Here is Chloe baby talking up quite a storm as she works on filling her diaper. Hey, even though pooping is hard work she can make it a fun experience!  (12/13/2010)

After trying to crawl multiple times, she finally crawls for the first time trying to get to a PS3 controller! At first we didn’t know whether or not to officially make the call that she started crawling, but we decided to make it official after shooting the video.  (12/15/2010)

Chloe shows off crawling again. It turns out PS3 controllers are a good way to bribe her to crawl because she loves them. She also can’t resist the network cable strung across the floor.  (12/15/2010)

Here is Chloe sitting down baby talking up a storm before she crawls over to the Christmas tree to check out the presents.  (12/17/2010)

Messy face.  (12/19/2010)

Christmas Tree

We went to a nearby Christmas Tree farm to get our tree this year.  We decided to get a precut tree this year because it was really cold and Chloe probably wouldn’t have really enjoyed the “cut your own” experience.

Here we are at the tree farm.  (12/08/2010)

Here is Chloe playing with the Christmas lights while Mom was testing them out.  (12/09/2010)

Mom decorating the tree.  (12/10/2010)

The tree is up and decorated!  (12/17/2010)


We woke up to see quite an awesome snowfall that happened overnight.  Here are some pictures we took throughout the day.  (12/12/2010)
