Happy 9 month birthday!! What a month it has been! You really haven't added a lot of new "tricks", but instead of been perfecting everything you do. This month has been all about STAND, STAND, STAND. And faster, faster, faster with your crawling. You are into EVERYTHING. Your favorite things are now the things you can't have - the lamp in your room, anything on your changing table, leaves and grass, and anything of Pippin's, as well as Pippin himself. You two are two peas in a pod, inseparable at times which can be pretty frustrating for us. The light has finally come on in the world of the sippy cup and solid foods. You love your puffs and juice now, but haven't **quite** perfected it without putting a few up your nose or down your shirt. You love to dance, dance, dance and entertained Dr Rauth with your moves today at your appointment. You went on your first vacation this month, celebrated my birthday, and visited your first pumpkin patch. Your two words are still Dadda and Momma, but you are REALLY close to Dog. You can now clap, and wave (but only when it suits you!) You are very close to taking those first few steps as your standing is pretty steady now and it's no trouble to move along furniture. I can't wait to see what the next month holds for you, and I kind of think it may be......walking!

(On a side note, after looking at her unofficial numbers for last month and her height measurement today Brent thinks the nurse didn't get a good measurement, and I do think she is shorter than this. We'll have to remeasure her tomorrow. )
