9 months old

Late as usual- what can I say? There's a lot going on around here these days. My job ending soon, Dave interviewing for jobs, trying to arrange moonlighting opportunities, an upcoming GI appointment for me to follow up on the wheat problem I developed while pregnant. Of course, this on top of the demands of 2 young children. My head is often spinning trying to keep track of it all. Notice the lack of statement about housecleaning and laundry. Take from that what you will.

In any case- she's 9 months old! She spends a great deal of time standing, holding onto something, even cruising along things sometimes. I'm thinking of putting brick shoes on her to slow her seemingly breakneck race toward early walking.

She has 2 teeth now- so cute! She says "mamamama," she has big belly laughs, she claps and waves occasionally. She also has major stranger anxiety and cries when someone unfamiliar talks to her. She loves shiny, crinkly things, being carried in the sling and watching the trees move when the wind blows. She has discovered the new joy of splashing the water in the bathtub.

She weighs 17 lbs 10oz. I don't remember what Dillon weighed at this age, but just looking back at pictures, Corryn easily has a couple of pounds on her. I truly don't look forward to wrestling her into a snowsuit this winter, but it'll be fun to see how she reacts to the snow.

And for the bonus-

How cool is this?

One of Dillon's friend's built this for her. It's made completely out of things found in our backyard.

Peaches promptly knocked down the first one, so he re-built it. I think it's pretty cool, as does she.

Milestones, full speed ahead

Less than 2 weeks after figuring out how to crawl, she has moved on to pulling up to a standing position. She did this even before figuring out sitting very well. Her favorite place to practice this skill is on the edge of the slippery bathtub as I am taking a shower. This, of course, concerns me a bit. Maybe giving her a rawhide to chew instead of keeping them from her would occupy her long enough for me to take a shower.
