Happy 9 Months

Happy 9 months to the most wonderful, stubborn, opinioated, funny little girl I know!  Wow, is my baby girl becoming so BIG!  Here is a recap of the last nine months:

In the last...................
9 months (newborn): She has (weight, height)...........statics to come after Tuesday
6 months (3 months old): She has turned smiles into laughter
     Gone on her first plane ride
     Gotten 2 teeth
3 months (6 months old): Starts to say "da, da"
     Gotten 4 more teeth,
     Learns to go from tummy to sitting
     Plays games
     Finds a security blanket
     Understands to counting to 3 means something fun is going to happen
1 month (8 months):  She begins to crawl,
     Gets 2 more teeth
     Decides she is going to eat on her own
     Walks with help
     Begins to pull to a stand
     Laughs at things mommy and daddy do that are funny
     Says "uh-oh"
2 weeks: She pulls to a stand and begins to let go w/ one hand
     Begins to say "all done" and make signing motion
     Laughs at things she does herself that are funny
1 week:  She crawls to the door to greet her Daddy
     Begins to climb stairs, pillows, Daddy's legs, her little couch
     Begins to successfully take a sippy cup
     Waves to people and says "hi"
1 Day: She waves back to someone after they wave first

What a difference a week, a month, 9 months makes, huh?  Over the next three months we want to work on: saying Ma-Ma (how does a child say "all done" but not "ma-ma"?), clapping, high fives, standing independently, signing or saying "more" and "please", leaving hair bows in.

Her favorites:
*Feeding herself
*Easter Eggs (current favorite toy)
*Daddy coming home
*Standing and walking
*Any crazy game Daddy plays
*Daddy's shoes
*Her pink and brown blanket from Aunt Brittney
*Watching Mommy do things (especially cooking)
*Music and dancing

Least Favorites:
*Being inside
*Having something taken away
*The zoo
*Having to sit still
*The bath tub running 
*Mommy leaving

Yummy Food
Such a Big Girl
We were able to get REALLY close to the sea lion at the zoo.  This was the first of many "freak outs" during the day.
Looking at one of the only animals she liked that day....the tiger.  (The other was the leapord, go figure)
Messy after blueberries.
Little Monkey
Mid Fit (the throwing her head back gives it away)
