Mothers, I'm sure she's fine, but if you have any ideas, Let me know!
-Taking her off EVERYTHING but breast milk and then slowing re-introducing foods, watching closely for food allergy's (multiple times)
-Not eating dairy myself (or a variety of other things that were thought to get through to her through my milk)
-Feeding her less (this was the worst, she was always hungry, still barfing and then she would wake up at night hungry).
-expensive and useless medical testing

Here are a few random tid bits about Cmonster...
She pulls herself up all the time! this one is just on her knees.
This one is a full body pull up.
She has been doing two of the cutest things that I keep trying to get pics of. Hopefully I'll still get them. One is that she ALWAYS sits as if she was doing a Hurkie---one leg in front, the other behind her, but still on her knee (the back leg only).

I've been wanting to give you a video, because I can't get over how cute she looks when she puts her little hands down. It's almost like she's prancing---but I didn't think you could do that while crawling...anyway, she's so adorable...and I'm not bias AT ALL! (moo-ah-ha-ha!) I have an even better video of this where she's all laughing and giggly, but I'm unwilling to post it due to a bra being a very prominent feature during the video (oops!).
You'll have to forgive the "momma voice" as my friend Lauren calls it. So true how you turn on this voice to get your baby to pay attention to you.
I'm trying to get her to do her new sign for Gramma Krista. It's pretty cute. The other day, Mimi (gramma rosi) waved at her and Claire thought it was Mimi saying "all done". She she waved back, thinking that she could be done eating. Sneaky, sneaky!
PS...I know I'm going to receive flack about her wearing PINK! Free clothes, people! FREE CLOTHES! Plus, I promise to let her wear pink if she CHOOSES to wear it.

Bill and Rosi have eight grandchildren now! I can't believe that happened so quickly. The oldest is seven. So, there were eight born in seven years (which probably doesn't seem like a lot to you, but boy! it does to me!)
Mom and Dad have been married for 42 years on Aug 25, 2009! They have survived (ha ha ha)
six children who are all so vastly different but who still depend on them for their love and advice on a regular basis.
I love you, Momma.

We went to the doctor today for her nine month check up.
height: 27 inches 25% (WOW! She used to be 75-90%!)
weight: 17 lbs 25%
head: however many cm that puts her in the 25% (i never remember this one right)
She's also been
barfingso much through out her life that last check up (6 months) when we mentioned it, the dr said to cut out everything but milk and slowly build her back up to see if it's an allergy or something like that. I did and she still
bArFsevery day about 7-8X. Not like a little spit up here and there, but like the entire contents of her stomach! 7-8 X a day! Needless to say, I should own a carpet cleaner! I do call HER a vacuum cleaner because she eats EVERYTHING she finds on the floor (ironic because she won't eat her Cheerios right now, or anything else I try to feed her the Proper way). I always used to vacuum two to three times a week, but now it's more of an every day occurrence. Anyway, I'm way off topic...
dr wants me to take her in to get an Upper GI (upper gastric-intestinal) test to make sure she doesn't have any blockages. She goes in this thursday. Daddy has to do it because I'm going to be teaching voice lessons. Poor guy (and her, too). She has to not eat before she goes, so she is going to be FU-SSY! Good luck, you two.
Basically an Upper GI consists of her swallowing a pill that has a camera in it that will take pics of her system and then she'll pOOp it out!
General Conference was amazing. I was able to listen to Saturday's sessions better than Sundays, but I really did enjoy them. Especially all of the talk about the preparation because of the times. and if you're not prepared, it's never too late. Really great stuff.
