You seem so much bigger but I'm not sure how exactly. Maybe you gained a pound or so? I measured you the other day at 29.5 inches so I guess you have gotten a little taller? You wear a lot of 12 month clothes but 9 months still fit a little better in the waist of pants.
You randomly started lifting your belly off the ground to do some normal style crawling. It kinda weirded me out. You were just so fast with the army crawling I don't understand why you randomly wanted to change. But whatever, you have picked up speed this way now so its a little less strange. You should be walking any minute so none of it matters.
It isn't just "bababoo!" being spouted off every minute of the day anymore. Still no real words but you are definitely exploring sounds. Finally making dada noises and occasionally throwing in mmm and nnn. You "clap" most of the time we say "YAY!"; you don't quit have the motion down though so its more like you are slapping the backs of your hands.
A pretty huge thing to me was that we discovered you are actually paying attention to the animals when we go to the zoo now! You looked at the monkeys and the vultures and pulled at the fence between you and the black swan when your Aunt Tracy and cousin Natalie were in town. It might actually be worth it to renew the membership for next year.
|your crazy eye face. you make this every time you make|
the noise that apparently is the same as The Grudge. (?)
No extra teeth. Still just the 4 with no extra bumps in sight. You love to give kisses to everyone and do this by request sometimes, but there have been a few moments when your kisses have turned into bites on Mommy's face. Ouch. You really hate being told to "stop". It makes you whine or cry every time I say that word, even when it isn't directed at you.
Food wise, you are getting sick of oatmeal every day but the egg restriction makes it hard to do much else. You aren't super impressed with toast and gluten-free waffles (eggless) end up on the floor after about 2 bites. You love most fruit but get tired of strawberries pretty quickly sometimes. Roasted winter squashes are a particular favorite, and you gobble up BBQ chicken sandwiches and hotdogs.
my only photo from Fall for Greenville this year.
you loved the chicken yakisoba.
