Happy 9 Months Avalynn!

Miss A,

Today was your 3/4's of a year birthday.  Like every month as you get older, time with you is more fun and interactive.  I forgot how fun this time is from when your sister was this little.  Amazing how long ago that feels!

You've started clapping and occasionally wave, but not very consistent on that.  You do this silly/adorable thing with your tongue, you stick it out and go back and forth from corner to corner of your mouth making funny noises.  Your sister can imitate either the clapping or tongue thing and you'll do it right away laughing.  You now say DaDa and actually call Daddy that.  Nothing close to MaMa - I keep working on it with you though. :o)

You still are only crawling, in the past couple days though you are starting to cruise the furniture more.  I'm in no hurry for you to start walking - you can just keep on crawling.  You LOVE the vacuum cleaner.  If we get it out you get so excited and follow us as we are vacuuming the house.  It's the cutest thing!

Nursing you is still going well - you eat about 5 times a day.  You are still eating baby solids twice a day.  In the past couple weeks we've tried a little bit of table food.  You do pretty well with it, only problem is that you still only have 2 teeth.  Who knows when anymore will sprout through - you do not show any signs of them coming through anytime soon.  You love crunchies, puffs, dried fruit, and Mum-Mum cookies.  You are a pro at your sippy cup and prefer just water.  I have tried putting some watered down Gerber juice or yogurt drink in your cup and you want nothing to do with it.

You are still in 12 months clothing, size 3 diaper, wearing a size 3 or 4 in shoes.  Your hair is getting darker and growing in, I can now put some hair bows in and they stay - I also was able to make the tiniest ponytail the other week, it was so cute!

You are such an incredibly happy baby with the brightest smile.  Thank you for being such a joy and bright light in our lives.
