nine months

Nine months old and oh so sweet. You are crawling everywhere...finding little treasures and always testing them out in your mouth. We're finding ourselves closing doors and sweeping more often around here.
You pull yourself up on furniture and even let go standing upright by yourself for a few seconds. You think it's hilarious when we try to get you to take a step... giggling and laughing...falling forward into our arms.You have become a mama's girl and hide your face in my chest when someone talks to you. You cry when someone else holds you...sometimes even your grandmas. Mommy is hoping you get over this soon. :) You cry in the nursery at church too.
At your nine month doctor appointment you weighed 20 pounds and 5 ounces and you were 27 inches long. You are mid to low on the percentile chart for your height and weight. Funny, because the first thing most people say when they see you is that it looks like she likes to eat. :)
You've started eating the food our family eats, processed through the baby grinder. You eat Cheerios. You drink water from a sippy cup. You still love your pacifier for naps and at bedtime. You are a complete joy and we are head over heels in love with you.

So very precious! My heart just thrills at all these sweet memories you have captured. Don't worry about Luca crying when the grandmas hold her. We'll just give her time!
