anyway, russ and i celebrated five years together last week. i thought we were just going to pick up some steaks and grill at home since we didn't really plan ahead and find a babysitter. russ came home a little late from work and i was sorta in a grumpy mood but he was excited. he told me to hurry and get ready; that a babysitter was coming at 6:30 and we were going out to dinner. he wouldn't tell me who or where but i didn't hesitate. i got ready, our sweet friends came over to watch baby girl and off we went to one of our favorite restaurant in town. it was a great night to spend with the one i love the most :)
five years ago:
and five years later, here we are on our anniversary:
also, baby girl is getting so big and turned 9 months a few weeks ago. she is so funny. what she is loving at 9 months: clapping, waving bye-bye, saying dada and sometimes she can say mama. she can also say bye bye sometimes. she loves to giggle, put anything she possibly can into her mouth, crawling, standing on her own, jumping, and just "babbling." she knows what "puffs", "no", "come on", "dolly" and "bye" means. she loves to drink water and only water out of her sippie. she has another tooth coming in, making that 7 total.
here are some pictures at 9 months...
