Annie girl! Happy nine months to you!
There is something so precious about the way you look at me, oh sweet daughter of mine. And when I look back at you I am filled with joy.
You are adorable. You are happy and content and curious and easily excited.
Your whole face lights up when you see your brother. You are pretty attached to me.
You have just started crawling on all-fours yesterday and today, though you've been scooting on your belly for several weeks. You still don't go far, only a few feet at a time, and you're frustrated that you can't go further.
You babble and talk occasionally and make sounds like da-da, ma-ma, and ga-ga. You love peek-a-boo and bath time and the knobs on the kitchen cabinets. You reach for everything, and this makes you hard to hold sometimes. You hate to get dressed.
You are a good eater and you love just about everything. You can take down an entire grilled cheese sandwich, you love the grilled nuggets from Chick-fil-A, and you drink well from a sippy cup. You are still breast feeding, too.
You are a great sleeper. You go down at 7, wake up between 7 and 8, and take 2 good naps almost every day.
If all this is making you sound like a pretty perfect baby, it's because you are. Your daddy says he'd have ten more if we could guarantee they'd be just like you. ;)
I'm not sure how much you weigh, but you seem to be growing just fine. I think you have your daddy's long legs because all your pants are too short. Your hair sticks straight up! You crinkle your nose when you laugh. You have 3 bottom teeth. You are beautiful.
We love you like crazy and can't picture our lives without your crinkle-nosed grin.
