9 Months

Gilly will be 9 months old on the 1st, and is developing very quickly. She has four teeth now, crawls super fast, pulls herself up to standing with ease, eats all kinds of solid foods, and now strings together a mixture of different sounds that almost sound like the beginnings of words. She is very entertaining, and makes us laugh as often as we make her laugh. I'll try to remember these days when she's a teenager and gets mad when we won't let her take the car.

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks:

Dramatic Reenactment

Based on actual events. No babies were harmed during this dramatic reenactment.

(we actually did find her like this, but she wouldn't repeat for the camera, so we staged it)

Quick Update

Pictures soon to come, but for now a quick update:

Gilly is now mobile. She started out with some inconsistent crawling about a week ago (maybe less?), but didn't get very far. I set her down on the rug this morning while I got her breakfast ready, and when I went back she was gone! She had crawled around the corner to the closet, and was admiring our shoes. She can also pull herself up to a standing position. She was practicing this last night, in her crib, well after midnight. The problem is she can pull herself up, but can't always ease herself back down. It makes for a noisy night.

She also has three teeth now, and has a large repertoire of babbling. She started saying "mamamamamama" on mother's day. Smart kid!
