Lots of Changes!!

Well, we finally have standing and some "backwards" crawling!! Grace has definitely made some significant gains during her 9th month. She's not pulling herself up yet, but once she stands-- holding onto something-- she's good to go for quite a bit! Plus, there's finally movement. I'm thinking she's getting a wee bit frustrated with the backwards crawling because the motivation (toys, books, cat, etc...) to move is in front of her, but the more she moves, the farther away the reward gets!!!! :)

At her 9 month check-up, the Dr. was very happy with her growth, physically and developmentally. But, the Dr. is still charting her as if she was born at 32 weeks-- developmentally a 7 month old, instead of a 9 month old. I don't know... maybe it's because Grace is my second baby, or maybe because of the fact that Jacob did everything so early and "fast and furious", but I'm LOVING that Grace is staying a "baby" and not plowing through all the developmental milestones so quickly. I'm relishing in the everyday joy that she brings, and all the "little" things she does each and every day that absolutely amaze us!!

S0, 9 months has been quite a big month for Miss Grace!

We also just returned from a long weekend back in the snow at the cabin!! We were there with our wonderful friends and their 2 darling girls. It was fun to watch Grace with the big kiddos-- she wanted to be in on all the action. Too cute!

If only I could reach my favorite things!!!!
Look at me, dad!!

Very cute pictures! Your kids seem so sweet! How old was Grace when you brought her home?

I felt that way with my first born. I just couldn't wait for her to progress and achieve different milestones. With E, it is completely different. I get sad as he gets older because I miss babyhood. Your babes are beautiful!

I've bought a couple of these

and a few of these

and a couple of these

If you want quick and easy so All In One's (AIO's) are the way to go. They are a little more expensive than other types but only by a couple of dollars. You can just take it off and throw it in the wash. :)
