9 1/2 months stats and pics!!

Adalyn Love went to the doc last Friday for her 9 month check up....Stats are listed below:

Weight: 17lbs 12oz (25-30%)
Length: 26 inches (5%)

She is little and we love it!! She has come so far in the last couple months. She is eating all baby foods (level 2 and 3), puffs, tiny pieces of cheese, yogurt, and I am about to start giving her tiny pieces of green beans! Just this week she finally got the hang of drinking from a sippy cup. She is still on the bottle when drinking milk but she drinks ice water from the sippy cup with her food. She still occasionally says ba ba and da da but now she is saying "WOW" a lot more. I realized that I say WOW all the time...so did she pick it up from me? Or is it just easy to say?! We are working on "uh-oh." She adores all of her grandparents, Grammy, PawPaw, Lolee and Larbear! Lolee and Larbear call themselves, "grandparents in the box." They live in Beaumont so we try to skype them once a week! Ady is not crawling forward, but pushes backwards. She mostly gets around on her hiney. She will be in one spot and we look again, and she is half way across the floor, still in sitting position. Although not crawling, I am working with her and will put her in the crawling position, up on her knees....she walks herself with her hands back up into the sitting position. I guess that's her favorite! We are traveling to TN in two weeks to see her great aunt, great uncle, and grandma great! She can't wait for the 6 hour and 8 hour car rides! Ugh! Oh yeah, I started a new job, working much closer to home, less hours, and only 4 days a week. So, she and I get to spend much more time together! And it's at Keystone Church!! I love it!! Now what you really want to see is pictures!!!!!
