9 months old!

Dear Alice,
Today you are 3/4 of a year old.
Here are 9 things about you:

1. I believe you have reached the end of your "stranger danger" phase for now.
It started last week when you let several of our friends hold you during a Christmas party and has continued.
Thank you for that!

2. Your sleep isn't great, but it's not terrible either.
You're typically up twice a night; sometimes 3 times.
You go to bed around 6:45/7 and wake up around 6:45/7.

3. You are an eating champ!
You don't seem to enjoy the typical foods babies eat, though.
For example, you don't want anything to do with bananas.
But, you were all over a salmon omelette the other morning.
You even ate the capers!

4. You click your tongue when we do it.
I love that you're starting to imitate us.

5. You weigh 16 pounds.
Still a peanut, but you're the perfect size to us.
Very portable. :)
Oh, and still no teeth.

6. You point to things all the time.
It's fun naming objects for you.
You also sign "more" and clap when we say, "Yay!"

7. You've made it 9 months, including your first Christmas, without toys with batteries.
Well, except for the .25 seahorse.
Anyway, I think that's a good thing. :)

8. You say Da-Da all the time, especially when I say, "Say Ma-Ma!"
I think you're doing it on purpose.

9. You aren't crawling, but you can go ahead and do that anytime now that the Christmas tree has been taken down.

We love you more than our words can describe, sweet Alice Claire.

Love, Your Mama

H got more than enough "battery" toys for the two of them and all the other k-group babies. It was overwhelming. I will be trying my best to return some of them.

Cathy, that's hilarious! Alice will be thrilled to play with Hudson's battery toys. :)

Ryann also says 'da da' when I tell her to say 'ma ma'. I really think she is doing it on purpose too!

And my hubby is jealous of Alice's pigtails. They are so cute. Ryann is still pretty much a baldy.
