Ok, so she turned 9 months last Saturday, but better late then not at all (in my opinion). It's hard for me to believe we are 3 months away from a one year old. It doesn't feel like it. When Jamie turned one she was just starting to walk and knew how to say at least 15 words (I think there was more that I was oblivious to). When I think about that we feel miles away from that with Jessie. Though, they are very different and Jessie will get to all things when she's good and ready.
So... on that note, what has Jessie been up too. Teeth is the first thing that comes to mind. The bottom two are in, the two fangs (I think they're called eye teeth or something) have broken through, but one of those you can just see a little bit of. One of the front teeth is coming through. Every day I can see more and more of it. These teeth seem to be popping up at record pace (again very different then Jamie).
Crawling! well sort of.. She gets around a small area by getting on all fours and then sitting. Every time she sits she is in a different spot and kind of gets around this way. She has taken a step or two in a traditional crawling position and then she flops on her belly. She has always loved to stand by holding on to things and yesterday she stayed standing even after letting go. It cracks me up that she seems to be trying to stand without holding anything. She has her legs standing straight but she can't figure out how to get the rest of her body pulled up (it looks like she is doing a downward dog (yoga) position). I imagine this is foreshadowing to eventually learning to walk.
Talking.. nope we're not there yet. She still says her standard Mama, Dada and Baba. Though, she does manage to keep her teachers amused with all the sounds she makes. It cracks me up too. Though, not that fond of the screaming at the top of her lungs in the car, especially when Jamie thinks it's funny and joins her.
She still loves the bath. When Jamie goes in she stands holding the tub, desperately trying to reach in and splash.
Eating. She is a great little eater. She will eat anything you let her. (thank goodness, not picky like her sister). Her favorite foods right now are garden vegetable (earths best) and.. well all the jars of veggies. She also likes canned green beans and mashed up bananas. The more solid, solids make me nervous but I'm working on it.
Lots of pictures coming soon...
