Hope, 9 months

9 months old, and lots of new accomplishments to brag about! Hope is standing up now, she’ll pull herself up on anything she can hold on to.

Every morning we wake up to see her little face happily peering at us from her crib now – and as soon as either Richard or I moves she gets so excited!

Her crib is a favorite place to stand – I think she likes the bars to hold on to (or peer between – as the case may be). She’s always so pleased with herself when she gets all the way up – like she’s thinking wow, what an accomplishment!

Eating (on her own) is another accomplishment she is quite proud of, although still mastering. She is very opinionated about being fed – spoon feeding just seems to be unacceptable while anything that be classified as finger-food and eaten (or worn) on her own is ideal.

Of course bath-time usually follows eating … as the skill of getting the food IN her mouth is still being learned. Lucky for her, she thinks baths are pretty fun too.  :)

Hard to believe these past 9 months flew by so fast. Her first 9 months (admittedly highly due to the morning-sickness) seemed to be such a longer period of time…
