Baby Grace: 9 months

You crawled just after your 8 month birthday and took off to all your brother’s toys you had been eyeing.  This 3 year old is learning quickly where to leave his toys.  You have become a very fast crawler and pick up speed when you hear me coming after you. You push back into sitting with your right leg forward and left into the half W position.  This allows you to quickly try to stand up or pull up. You are dancing to whatever beat you hear and wave your hands in the air with the music. You enjoyed our family Thanksgiving celebration and even tasted some sweet potatoes.  You have progressed to figure food and are using your pincer grasp to enjoy bananas, avocado, babybel cheese and bread.  You continue to sleep beautifully taking two naps too.  Without protest you are now taking 2 bottle feedings of formula during the day.  You are content in your exersaucer and love the view of your brother biking in the house.  You met Santa this month and were all smiles as you enjoyed patting his beard.  People continue to comment that you never cry, have the bluest eyes and are big, although I think your height is deceiving them. You know who mama, dada and brother are and love all the attention you get and as we prepare for Christmas we know you will love the time with family. Merry Christmas sweet Grace.
