9 Months Old...already

Natalie turned 9 months old last Saturday.  I was looking at her all stretched out in her crib the other day and dang, she's big.  Not only is she just growing fast, she's tall for her age.  I'm a little worried that she's growing out of all her long sleeves and pants.  We still have to wait several more months before it'll be warm enough to wear all her new summer clothes.  Our wardrobe choices from now until June should be interesting.

Still no crawling or walking.  She just sits and shuffles her legs real fast like she's running.  She gets frustrated when she doesn't go anywhere.  I guess if nothing else, its good exercise.

It cracks me up that she'll just burst into laughter for no apparent reason.  She does it a lot lately, especially in the stroller or in the car.  What is so funny? 

I think its so interesting how she inspects things.  Justin let her hold the remote control the other night.  She must have sat there for 15 or 20 minutes just passing it from hand to hand, rotating it in every direction, turning it over, squeezing it, holding it over her head.  Completely mesmerized.  She's figuring out how things work.

All her little expressions and smiles make me laugh.  I think she has such a sweet little personality.

Here she is wearing a sweater that my Grandma Bennett knit for me when I was a baby.  Unfortunately, I cut off her head, but the smile was priceless.   

Here's an action shot of her rolling all over the place.

I decided we better start getting used to wearing sunglasses since we're going to Hawaii soon.  How funny are these?  I was dying when I put them on her.

People keep telling me that they can't post comments to our blog and I figured it was just some glitch with blogger.  Until today when my smart friend Jennie suggested it might be in our settings.  I just checked and she was right!  I've fixed it so everyone should be able to comment without having to login or create an account or any of that nonsense.  Now I'll have to post something for you to comment on.  I'll work on that tomorrow....

Tasty Toes

Now that Natalie is rolling over, she's been hanging out and even sleeping on her belly.  Yesterday, I went into her room after her nap and caught her pushing herself up and peeking over the crib at me.  How cute is this?

I love this t-shirt.  If you can't tell, its a mama horse and baby horse with a little heart above their heads.  My friend Mike from work picked it out for her.

Dang, I wish I was this flexible.  Don't worry, we'll put a stop to this as soon as she starts actually using her feet.
