9 Months (well really 9 1/2!)

Our little girl is getting big! She's 9 months old and is changing everyday. At her 9 month check up she weighed 15 lbs. 14 oz. ... so we are almost at 16 lbs. That puts her in the 5% for weight and 10% for height. I think that she has gained a pound or so since the check up. She is eating almost every fruit, veggie, and meat now. We even let her try a little ice cream on Sunday when we went to our favorite local ice cream shop. I think she has her daddy's sweet tooth! Lately her appetite has increased, so I think she is going through a growth spurt.
Last week was a big accomplishment as her first tooth poked its way through! She has another one right beside it trying to push through. Other recent accomplishments is she can drink from her sippy cup all by herself, she is crawling (backwards not forward yet), she is eating finger foods, and she is starting to assert her independence. She loves playing with anything that makes music, and she loves giving her doll kisses. I think this might mean she is getting ready to be a big sister. Really she loves giving anybody kisses (the wide open mouth really wet kind!). Her newest love is her books. Whenever we go into or pass by her room she points to her book shelf and almost won't let you walk past without stopping to read one. She especially likes any books with flaps she can open or animals that you can make sounds for. Needless to say we are having so much fun watching her grow.
Rivers is also doing great and measuring right on track. He is not quite as active as Madeline was in my belly. That might be because I don't have time to sit down and feel him like I did with her. He definitely kicks harder than she did though. I can't believe we only have 3 more months until he is here, though we can't wait to meet him. Children are such a blessing from the Lord and we are loving being parents!
Here are some pics of Madeline's new accomplishments.
