9 Months

Yep, I'm gonna say it...I can't believe she's getting so old. Liberty is still the sweetest little baby girl I have ever imagined. She will smile at anyone that pays her attention, and giggles at the slightest provocation. She worships her brother (and he her) and she loves to eat. She is a pretty great little sleeper, and just the most easy going baby ever. She still has no teeth (or hair!), and is not crawling...but she is just minutes away from it. Today she pulled herself up to a standing position, and she gets rocking on all fours. Time to pull out the baby gates and lower the crib! We've got a big girl on or hands.

She has just turned a corner lately and become lots more interactive. She's so fun to play with, talk to, and roughhouse with. And her new trick is "clapping". She lights up if you clap back at her.

At her well check today she topped the charts in the 95th percentile, as always. We also found out she has a larger than normal soft spot (it should be gone by now but it's actually bigger than a newborn's should be). The doctor does not seem concerned because there are no other indicators of disease, but it can be related to a host of diseases or tumors so we are just watching it, confident it will close up normally soon. It didn't freak me out, but it did make me stop for a minute and think how miserable I would be without my sweet little Liberty.

She is precious. I love her pink hat. Hope everything is ok with the little munchkin.
