9 months


Grace is two days past her nine month birthday. Wow. She has been “out” for as long as she was “in” and it scares me a little. I don’t want her to grow up. Nonetheless, she is. Here are some things she’s doing these days –

  • She says something that sounds like “hey” when greeting people she likes.
  • Waves hello and bye-bye consistently
  • She’s crawling, for real, on all fours. And fast, too.
  • Sometimes, she crawls in the tub.
  • She’s attempted the steps, but fell down two til I caught her.
  • She climbs (though not the stairs yet, thank goodness!). So far, she’s tried to climb up on the couch and out of a shopping cart.
  • Stands up all the time, sometimes without holding onto anything.
  • She’s cruising all over. Give her something to hold on to, and she’ll take off.
  • She claps a lot, especially when she’s anticipating something she likes.
  • She’s discovered the pincer grasp, though she doesn’t use it often or well yet.
  • Bite stuff. Everything.
  • Get the “gumballs” out of her ball machine
  • Wears her Nike sneakers to school every day
  • “Swimming” in the pool (really just riding in her floatee raft)
  • Arch her back to get down off of a chair, our laps, or whatever
  • Whack the cats in the head in an attempt to pet them
  • Turn the phone on and off
  • Change the channel on the tv
  • I’m certain she understands “no” and when she’s being corrected (even though she doesn’t always listen).
  • She has 4 teeth and a fifth ready to burst through any day.


By the way, I’m still waiting for that “newborn forever” cure.

  1. What a cutie- she is growing so fast!

    Liam changed the language on our TV (like for volume and channel) to German somehow when he was playing with the remote and we can’t figure out how to get it back to English. He’s already more technologically advanced than his mom. Kids these days!
