Fall is here...

and so are the sniffles and runny noses around our house! It has been a rainy and chilly week here, so we had lots of time to play inside and do some crafts. Joseph had his nine month doctor appointment on Monday (10/20/08). He got his first of two flu shots and I think his last Hep. B vaccine....and we also snuck in a flu shot for Miss Sophia. We decided it was best to not tell her in advance....she would just worry, worry about it. So, though it wasn't a pleasant surprise for her... I think she handled it fairly well!

Here are Joseph's nine month stats!
He is now:
18 pounds 0.5 ounces; 27 1/2 inches in length; and his head circumference is 17.36 inches
(10 % for weight) (20 % for height) (14% for head circumference)

He is such a happy little guy...even at the doctor's office! He LOVES to play with the paper on the table! Thank goodness daddy could be there for at least part of this visit b/c I could barely keep him on the table.... this little guy is a MOVER! Here are some pics of the day:

Ironically, both of the kids caught colds a few days after the flu shot...hmmm... and poor Joseph is still having a time with his four top teeth! We had many sleepless nights this week. And the rain made for perfect stay at home, chicken noodle soup days! I snapped some pictures of our "sick day". ( I wish I could look that cute when I don't feel good!!!) We did lots of painting and playing...AND Sophia had a ball trying on her new jayhawk costume! Can you guess who bought it for her???????? Thanks Pappou!

You've added lots since I've been on! Each pix gets cuter and cuter. Miss Jayhawk is, indeed, Pappou's heart-throb! Now, that's what I call a true Baby-Jay! Joseph didn't seem to mind his big sister's man-handling. He has the cutest smile--he truly is the "Gerber Baby"!!! <3
