Our family adventures

Nine months old and so grown up

Leave a comment

Today, Allie is 9 months old. So what does this 9-month-old do for fun?

We for starters, she looks all grown up. She stands up using anything she can grab onto. These more solid end tables were a wise investment as the old ones would have tumbled over when she grabbed them. She’s getting more and more brave, and we’ve caught her standing without holding on a few times, but its only for a few seconds at a time, so no pictures yet.

She cruises the house like she owns the place. We’ve had to remove her fingers from Monk’s food and water bowls more than once. Eventually we will get some gates.

She lounges in her pajamas.

She hangs out with mommy and daddy.

She plays peek a boo. When we put our hand over her eyes, she just grins so big and then moves our hands to show herself! It didn’t work well to take a picture though, because she’s too much of a poser. She also likes it when we cover our own eyes and then reappear for her.

Allie is fascinated with her ceiling fan! Until last week the fan was broken, so she is just now discovering it.

She eats with a passion. Look at that open mouth! Her favorite foods are squash and pears. Too bad we can’t get her to take her formula with that same passion.

She makes funny faces.

And she likes to jump in her jumper, or as we like to call it, the containment unit. We can’t keep her in there too long though, as she’d rather be out cruising.

This morning Doug had to get to work early, so he dropped me off at work before dropping Allie off at daycare. I waved goodbye to her and she waved back!

Allie, I can’t believe you’re already 9 months old! I keep asking you to stop growing, but you don’t listen to me. You are discovering new things every day and you’re so much fun. I can’t wait to see what comes next.
