Nine Months Old!

Ruby is NINE months old today!!!!!!
She's been out ALMOST as long as she was in! ha!

 She has developed such a little personality!
She makes "uh uh uh" sounds...gestures and says "da da da" about EVERYTHING.
She also makes the "ma ma ma" sound, sometimes when crawling to me. ;)
And, she often still makes the "ne ne ne" sound when she's sleepy.
And she groans/sings herself to sleep if she's tired and I rock her in her room.

 Pulling up? check.  Cruising? check.
CRAWLING super fast? check CHECK!

 She only cruises along the table, she doesn't walk behind while pushing yet, she would rather just sit down and crawl REALLY FAST!

She likes to wave and makes a sound back when you say, "hi"
And loves to clap and move/sway with ANY musical beat!
 Often when she cries from falling or hurting herself she will be sounding like she's really trying to TELL us something about it. Lots of sounds like trying to jabber.

 She is into absolutely everything.  Just today I pulled a squinkie, a kidney bean, and a COUGH DROP out of her mouth! (not all at the same time!).  She's to be watched CONSTANTLY!

 She loves the Happy Baby organic puffs, she gets shaking excited when she sees the container.  
She has come to like just about all baby food we have given her now.  She is up to two small meals a day along with nursing.

 She now sleeps in her crib consistently for the first part of the night, mostly while I'm still up, HA!
Then she nurses and sometimes ends up beside me, sometimes back in the crib just depending on her and my mood. :)

 She is spoiled by her family...NAH.
Katie and Noah are such great big siblings.  I honestly don't know how I survived without them to help me before! They are AWESOME at entertaining, loving, teaching, and just keeping an eye out for her quick and mysterious eating adventures.

9 months old!!!!!
