Nine Months - Finally

I'm 9 months old now. I weigh 20 lbs and am 29.5 inches tall. We can say "tall" now because I stand up. Ok, not on my own, but I am vertical a lot.

We had a busy month this past month! My Aunt Jeri and my big sis Mashea came to visit us for almost two weeks. It was so neat meeting my big sister and seeing my Aunt again. I had fun playing with Mashea and she seemed to enjoy playing with my toys, too. Dad, Aunt Jeri and Mashea did all kinds of fun stuff, but I had to go to daycare anyway because I was too small for most of it. I did go to the beach with them one day, but I did not like it. The waves scared me, the sand was scratchy and all I did was cry. Mom said we are going to go to the beach again soon, though. I guess I'd better prepare myself for that.

Physically, I continue to crawl like a mad woman and have taken up grunting and pointing. Mom is trying to teach me some sign language, but really it justs looks like she's flapping her hands around in the air. I recognize the sign for "milk" and I'm working on the sign for "more." Cheerios are a great educational motivator for me.

I'm still trying lots of new foods and I eat pretty much everything Mom gives me. I don't care for beans, though. I feed myself finger foods and am pretty good with a sippy cup.

Here are some pictures. I hope you like them!

Nine Months - Delayed

Mom's delaying my nine month posting until after my doctor's appointment on the 21st so we can have some accurate statistics to share with you. Plus, she's trying to gather up some pictures from when my aunt and big sister came to visit, but the pictures haven't arrived from the mainland yet. Here's one picture to hold you over until then.
