Nine Months

Once again, another month has passed of being a mommy. It has now been 9 months since I've become a mother. I've had a baby as long as I was pregnant. (I know. Technically you're pregnant for 10 months but the first month doesn't count to me seeing as I didn't even know I was pregnant.)

Abby is continuing to grow and develop. She can now FINALLY roll over and does it frequently. Before she could roll, but decided she was above that apparently. Instead, she chose to lay flat on her tummy and cry when she got frustrated. Now she realizes that rolling=a form of transportation. (although she still does do the frustrated tummy cry)

Abby prefers standing to any other activity now, especially if she is on our bed looking out the window into our neighbors backyard. But she'll also stand at the couch as I'm sitting on it, in the tub, and on the bench at church haming it up for anyone who sits behind us.

She is also very close to crawling. She'll get up on all fours and rock like she wants to take off, and then its as if she gets scared and just goes to her belly or she pushes herself back onto her bum. But I'm betting by 10 months she'll be doing it.

Other little tid-bits: She is cutting her top teeth, so lately she has been extra cranky, extra snotty, and extra drooly. She is also starting to get into everything, and she finds things on the floor I don't even see and puts it in her mouth...which causes me to dig in her mouth because she starts to choke. Looks like vacuuming every day may just be in order. She also loves to 'bounce dance'. She'll just be on her bum and bounce to music. It makes me proud! Lastly, she is starting to babble more; a sound I can't get enough of.
Nor can I get enough of her little face. Have I ever mentioned how much I love being this girls mama? Because I do! Abbigale Mae, I love you!

    ps. Brigham removed his comment because it was really me and he just hadn't signed out of his account so my comment showed up under his name and I had to fix it.
