Nine Months

Margo turned nine months old on Sunday, March 29th. We spent the afternoon at a birthday party at the park in Clayton. Margo loved the swings. Doesn't she look like such a big girl swinging?

Well, since the days just keep flying by and Margo's mommy can't seem to update her baby book, a blog entry will have to do for now. This is mostly for me, so when I do finally update her baby book (hopefully before she goes to kindergarten), I'll have this to refer back to. So I apologize if this is too wordy or long.

She's crawling at break-neck speeds now....and has been for almost 2 months now.

She just started pulling up about 2 weeks ago and although her noggin has taken several hits, she is becoming more steady every day.

Basically, she's mobile and getting into everything!!! The toilet, the pantry, the kitchen drawers, the dishwasher, the folded laundry, the trashcans, etc. etc. etc.

She's babbling more and more. Just the usuals.....da-da (her favorite word), ba-ba, na-na, and finally, ma-ma (when she's in distress!)

She still loves the song Banana Phone. The girls have spoiled her by turning it on in her room every time I'm in there changing her diaper. Therefore, she starts bouncing on her changing table, just waiting for the music to come on. So cute.

She has discovered Barney!! After a lengthy hiatus, he's ba-a-a-a-ck!!!! It's funny to see how excited she gets when she hears the intro music to the show. She also perks up when she hears the music to the Pink Panther, since Lydia is always watching that.

Within the past few weeks, she has fallen in love with a Curious George stuffed animal (that is actually Lydia's---from Santa, this past Christmas). She will grab him and give him hugs and big sloppy kisses. She will do it for several minutes. We love to see her do this. We'll put him on the floor and say, "Margo, go get George".....and off she'll go to love on him! I hope to post a video of this on here soon. Not sure how long this love affair will last, but it is cute for now.

She is still toothless, but that hasn't stopped her from eating. Her favorite foods now are Kraft Mac'N Cheese like her sissies eat, yogurt, prunes, carrots, and most any kinds of fruit. She's had her share of real table food, including strawberries, green beans, butter beans, baked beans, birthday cake, Chick Fil- A chicken nuggets and fries, etc. And of course her favorite snacks are puffs, cheerios, and goldfish.

She's still sleeping great at night, with 2-3 short naps during the day.

At her 9 month checkup, she weighed 17lbs., 10.5 oz. and was 27.5 inches long.

I thank God for another healthy, beautiful baby girl!
