Love & Hugs & Slobbery Kisses!

Since my last update, Charley has finally taken off and is full on crawling. She is everywhere and gets into everything! She popped her 3rd tooth, she now has 3 in a row on the bottom. She STILL won't say Mama, but it sounds like she says "Jake Jake" her "Brutta from anotha Mutta". I will ask her for love and hugs and she will press her cheek against mine or bury her head in my chest and give me a little squeeze, it is the BEST feeling. We will ask for a kiss and pucker our lips and she will give us big wet ones. She is amazing and every day is a treat and something new. She is attending her friend Layla's 1st Birthday Party next weekend. It will be her first party, so we are really looking forward to that.

9 Months Old!!!

We have our 9 Month Checkup on Friday, so I will post her stats, although she is thinning out some. My chunker is growing up and I am sad about it!

In the last week, she has become picky about food again. She will only eat oatmeal and bananas, everything else she spits out, and not in normal fashion, she has to do the "raspberry spray" spit, so not only does it get on me, but the kitchen walls. It is hard not to laugh and we try not to let her see us laughing, but we are trying to teach her that that is a no-no. She's like her father, she doesn't listen! lol just kidding.

We have been up on all fours rocking for about 3 weeks, still not crawling, she goes backward. Now she pushes up onto her feet, so her feet and hands are on the floor. Sunday, we tried holding her hands and she took steps. She is really enjoying walking assisted. She is not yet pulling herself up and I have only seen her sit up from a lying position once. She somewhat holds her own bottle, she can do it, but prefers to be waited on hand and foot.

My hunch is she can do all these things and probably does them at daycare, but she refuses to do any work at home. That is okay, I like to gradually let go! She is so sweet and good! She hardly makes a peep. She is giving spontaneous smiles and laughs all the time now, has learned to clap, she waves, I still can't get her to say my name. She is a Daddy's Girl, he is her preference and that is okay too.

This is a shot her dad sent me this morning, getting ready for school.

I have lots to update and pictures to post, but this one deserves a post of its own.
