Girls should know how to fix things

I bought a toy/book shelf in hopes of keeping Kasen's toys up off the floor. She helped Karl assemble it. Although he did swear less, it seemed to take a little longer....

Picarbockers love TV

It's practically in her DNA. At least the remote is good for fine motor skills right?

9 Months old... time to grow up ;)

Kasen is now 9 months old.  She has been for a week now, but since her 9 month check-up was only yesterday I am pretending this post is not belated.  Just like my child is pretending to be interested in the book in the picture.  In reality her thought is.... "how am I going to get this into my mouth with this guy hovering?"  Already we are cramping her style.

Here are the important stats:
Height/Length:  29in
Weight:  21 lbs 11.5 oz

In case you are curious...  Kasen is smaller than I was at her age.  HA well meaning strangers who comment on her size!  Turns out we Picarbockers have big babies - WHAT OF IT?  She is not much smaller in length, but I killed her in weight.  I blame the stomach bug that worked its evil way through our house.  Don't worry nosy bitties.. she'll be back to fighting weight in no time.

My stats at 9 months:
Height/Length:  29 1/4 in
Weight: 22 lbs 1 oz

A doll made new again

This Christmas my mom gave Kasen a doll from my childhood. It was a fabric doll that I carried everywhere. As you would expect - the 30 year old doll needed some work. When my mom described the work that had to be done, the doll is basically all new. As you can see in the photo, she LOVES the yarn hair.
