This is my old rocking chair, do you think you look like your mama just a little bit?! Ha
You still just have two teeth, but the doctor said today that your upper gums are very swollen so she thinks more will be coming in soon! I can't wait to see you with two little front teeth!
You put your hands up in the air when we say "Big girl!" You always get the biggest smile on your face.
Waving at Ga Ga when she pulled up
You have started pulling up onto things. You don't really "cruise" yet, but you pull up and sometimes get "stuck" and you'll fuss because you can't get back down! Ha! We got out your little learning table and you love to stand up by it and play.
You just got so excited when I pulled this out and just started banging on it everywhere! Ha!
Bubba had to play, too! This picture certainly shows how thrilled you were with your new toy!
Little Miss Curious. This is your new nickname! Every time I turn around you are into something! I move one thing out of your grasp, and I turn around and you're into something else I need to move away! Ha! You are definitely more curious about the world around you now. You love to watch us and everything we are doing, and you want to join in! You especially love it when I am loading the dishwasher, vacuuming, etc. You are right there at my heels every single time! Ha!
You both love each other so much! It is so sweet. There is never a time that you don't smile at your Bubba (all of these nine month pictures were taken with him making you smile behind the camera!)
I am starting to realize that apparently I don't keep my floor clean enough (and for those people out there who know your mommy and what a neat freak she is, this will surprise you!) I can't vaccum, or swiffer the floors enough...you always seem to find every little speck and it ends up in your mouth faster than I can run. Every time I look at you you are chewing on something. Pieces of fuzz, a crumb (left by daddy or Bubba! Ha!), you name it. You get very mad when I do the sweep to get it out of your mouth, but girl, vacuuming every day doesn't exactly make me happy either! Ha!
I just think you look like such a big girl here!
Last week I caught you crawling up the stairs for the first time. You had been exploring them for a while, and sort of hanging out at the bottom, but the other day you saw something you wanted on a step and you just went for it (we won't tell Bubba it was his Raffi that you went for!)
You got kind of mad once you got there, because you realized you were stuck! Ha! Silly girl. So now we pretty much have to watch you every single second, since you are everywhere and constantly on the move!
Kerigan, you are just growing up right before our eyes. You have such a fun, adorable, bubbly little personality (Ga Ga says you get that from me, but I think it's just the way you are!) You are always happy and have smiles for everyone around you. You love to giggle and play and I love how inquisitive you are (even though it makes me tired!) Every day I still just look at you and sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure this isn't a dream. You are real, baby girl! My real live little dolly. The baby girl I've dreamed of my whole life. You are here, and you are ours. Only one word comes to mind...
We love you to the moon and back!
