Hannah is 9 months

Better late than never right. Well Hannah had her 9 month check-up on Tuesday and she is doing well. Hannah weighed in at 17lbs 14oz and 28.5 inches long. She is in the 30% for weight and 85% for length. Even the Dr said WOW! She continues to be happy to sit and watch Calla run around. Hannah is however a talker, some mornings I actually feel like we are having a conversation. She loves her toys and is about to get her two top teath. Hannah is also a great eater. She is down to only 4 feedings of milk a day and the rest is food. She loves to feed herself, bannans, peas, avacado, orzo pasta, sweet potatoes, carrots, and lentils. Here are some pictures of our Happy Hannah.

Visiting Great Grandpa

The Shaff family went on a special adventure last weekend to Sacramento, CA. My Grandfather, who lives in Iowa, is visiting my Aunt Tami in Sacramento for three weeks, we we all went down to visit. The drive was an adventure in itself, lots of snow and rain, but we made it in one piece.

Here are the pictures from our trip. They are priceless! My grandfather is an amazing person. At 94 he still lives alone, just traveled half-way across the country, and has officially been retired longer then her worked in his life. I am so glad my children have gotten to meet him, he is someone I will always admire.

Calla, Hannah, and Great Grandpa. The girls took right to grandpa. It might have been the cookies he made, or just his wonderful smile!

Hannah loved her Great Grandpa, she smiled every time we was in view.

I think Great Grandpa loved Hannah as much as she loved him. They both were smitten.

I even got in a picture.

Hannah loved to touch Great Grandpa's face. That is truly a face worth touching, it has seen more hard work then most of us reading this blog will ever experience in our life times.

Aunt Tami even got some time with Hannah. Hannah was her usual happy self and loved all of the attention.

Calla had a blast at Tami's house. There was lots of space to explore and Teddy, Tami's dog was great entertainment.

Calla loved playing on Great Papa's bed. It was the perfect size to climb on, jump on, and pose for pictures on.
