Are you sure it doesn't go this way, Mommy?
Wait, what does this say?
Um, how do we have a 9 month old child?!? Seriously. It is incredibly hard to believe that Amelia is already 9 months old.
She is such a happy baby! Amelia is constantly smiling and laughing. And she talks in her own language...we can make out "mama" and an occasional "da". She gives hugs and just yesterday learned how to give "kisses," although most of them land on the couch or random body parts (like our legs or noses).
It's a race to see if Amelia will walk or crawl first. She has the army-crawl down, and gets up on all fours. She rocks, and has crawled twice but otherwise she's trying to stand and walk. Amelia cruises around the couches, and can walk almost across the room when holding our hands. She even walks with her push-toy! She just doesn't have the balance to do it solo yet.
Amelia is growing like a weed! We'll have more official stats later this week when she goes to the pediatrician, but she's roughly 30 inches tall!!! When we're out and about, everyone thinks she's much older than she is because of her height. She eats 3 solid meals a day, and her favorite is still anything with sweet potatoes. Amelia really hasn't been successful with table food yet. She'll nibble on potatoes, but doesn't like puffs and we haven't tried anything else. She just doesn't like the texture yet.
Basically, Amelia is an awesome child!
