Daph is 9 months old, and has become such a little lady! She is full of personality like we've never seen before, and she is absolutely hilarious. She is an angel, and we love every part of her!

9 months stats:
Height: 28" (60th percentile)
Weight: 19 pounds 6 ounces (55th percentile)
Head circumference: I can't remember the exact measurement, but she's off the charts!

Daph did great at her doctor's appointment, especially since there were no scheduled vaccinations! The nurse gave her a plastic hippo for her bravery. New favorite toy.

A little about Daphne:

~Still loves to read, and is incredibly interested in turning the pages. Sometimes way too fast.
~LOVES playing with her animals! She kisses them and always chooses them first to play with.
~She is really good at pointing. She especially points at everything she likes in her books.
~She is talking up a storm, and babbles using new syllables. Our favorite thing lately is that she says "oh" and "hi" with the cutest lilt in her voice. Cutest baby sounds we've ever heard.
~Daph says sounds that sound just like "hi," "hey," and "hello" when she talks to us or wants to get our attention, and when Jared walks through the door after work. The nurse at her appointment even thought she said "hello." Smart babes.
~Loves to feed herself, with her favorite foods being: grapes, pasta, yams, and mangoes.
~Leans in for kisses! My favorite.
~Loves to clap.
~Loves to play with hangers, pulls as many wipes out of her container as she can before I stop her, and loves anything forbidden such as tissues and paper.
~Likes her touch-and-feel animal books
~Loves watching me brush my teeth, put on make-up, and especially putting on chapstick.
~Loves to play with balls and her toy truck
~Fake laughs and mirrors what we do
~Is getting more friendly with people other than Jared and me
~Loves to play with spoons
~Holds EVERYTHING over the edge... no matter where she is, in her exersaucer or her high chair, she holds everything I give her to play with over the edge, and often drops it. She then looks at me and says an "ah-oh" sound.
~Her hair is getting so long you can tuck it behind her ears
~Loves looking out the window, watching birds, trucks, and cars
~Is getting closer to crawling... we're trying to convince her that it will be fun.
~Has the biggest smile for Jared when he gets home from work
~Her favorite songs lately: "Popcorn Popping" and "Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam"

We LOVE our little baby and can't believe she is so grown up!! She's our sweetheart.

Since she is almost 20 pounds, she graduated to her big-girl carseat this weekend!
