At her 9 month checkup she weighed 24 pounds and was 29.5 inches, so she is still topping the charts.
She is into everything these days...
and so proud of herself. She is quick, too. Clearing this bookshelf took maybe a minute. One of her favorite places to play in is the bathroom. The other day I heard water splashing and went to find where it was coming from. She was reaching into the toilet and had water everywhere! Anna never would have thought to do such a thing. :)
As you can tell from most of these pictures, she doesn't like to sit for very long and prefers to stand most of the time.
She started walking with the stroller, too.
She likes to let go and stand by herself and we have fun cheering her on (can you tell by the expression on my face?).
It is funny because when we make a big deal of Haven's new developments, Anna is quick to let us know she can do those things too and wants us to watch her do it. Anna will stand with her arms out like Haven, wobble around and fall to the ground. Such a first born. :)
Although we've only had this "sweetie girl" (as Anna calls her) with us for 9 short months, I can hardly remember what our family was like without her. She has been the perfect addition.
