Yes folks, this is what a NINE MONTH OLD little girl looks like when she is just waking up from a nap. We can't believe she's already reached this landmark but nevertheless, it has happened!
18 pounds heavy
2 feet, 3 inches tall
44.6 cm head circumference
dark blonde hair
It seems like the past month has been a slow one for development. She continues to crawl like crazy, push chairs around the house, laugh and cry and shout. She loves curried lentil soup and pretty much every other food, along with baths and songs and playing the piano and snuggling with Mom and Dad. She is lifting her arms to be picked up, crying when we leave her at school (and immediately becoming happy again the moment we are out of sight), and sleeping a nice long 9 hour chunk during the night again (thank goodness!). All in all we think we got a pretty good one and we can't wait to spend the next nine months with Gretel around!
