Time sure is passing quickly and Austin has hit her 9 month mark. I've misplaced all of our papers from the doctor so I wont be able to record her stats. She is growing great and there are no concerns. She is looking really well and thriving.
She still doesn't want to crawl, but she is getting awfully close and is starting to pull herself up to things. What better way to motivate someone than oreos.
Usually when I put her down, she will start to whine for a few minutes. If you wait a little bit, it generally stops and she will be content. But most people think they need to pick her back up right away and don't give her time to settle down.
Her hair always seems to be sticking straight up and out of control. Even when it's wet or brushed down, it doesn't stay down for very long.
She still enjoys chewing on a dirty pair of flip flops. Whatever keeps her happy. I'm obviously not too concerned about germs.
Austin has some pretty good facial expressions and is always good at making a decent face for me.
She continues to have her tongue out most of the time, as evidence by all of the pictures.
Austin knows it is nap time when we walk into her room. She starts squirming and cries as you get closer to her crib. Once you lay her down and put a blanket over her, she will shove the blanket into her mouth and be asleep within minutes.
These pictures are all very similar, but I love her different facial expression in each of them and I had to share them all.
I especially love when she gives me some of her big smiles. She gets so excited!
Where her hair isn't super crazy, sometimes I'll put a little pony tail or two into it.
I am still constantly stopped by strangers commenting on her bright eyes or how cute she is. I can't say that I disagree! Goodness, she is beautiful and we just love her!
