happenings lately

A couple of weeks ago Justin had to work down in San Antonio so MJ and I tagged along. We had a wonderful time for our first family vacation. Mallory and I did all the touristy stuff during the week while Justin was working. This is us on the riverwalk at dinner one night.

We went to a park Hemisfair Park found a swing for her and they had a big wooden play structure that was pretty neat.
Mallory and I walked the Botanical Garden one morning before it got too hot and it was beautiful. She made it about half way through before passing out!

The Children's Museum has a tot center designated for 0-36 month olds. She loved it and finally got brave enough to climb on the equipment towards the end, but in the beginning she just likes to sit and people watch like her momma! We have been going to Gymboree play and learn classes, they have these balls (in the picture below) there that she absolutely loves. We even bought some for her thinking then they might not be that big of a deal then once class rolls around but oh no! She gets a death grip on the ball and carries it around with her the entire time. Oh and yes they had them at the Children's museum so of course we had to tote that around the entire time! Too funny!

Finally posting her 9 month pics and we will be taking the 10 month ones next week! Wow time flies like crazy! It is getting harder and harder to take her pics each month as she gets more and more mobile. As you can see she got bored with me in no time and moved on checking out the books on the table!

If you can see she has 2 teeth on the bottom! She has been chewing her fingers like crazy so I think more are moving and on there way! She is getting better each day with finger foods. It is amazing how she has grown into this little person and out of being a baby (even though she will always be our baby)!! Hope all is well with everyone and thank you for checking in on us! I am continuing to get better each day, the hardest part for me is the obvious appearance difference and the chemo brain. The chemo brain is residual from the chemo and means I have a foggy feeling memory and it is hard to concentrate on things. I hope things will just continue to get better with each day. All our love~G, J and MJ
