So much has happened since I last posted. Davie is crawling like the wind. My favorite is when she gets one foot on the ground and the other knee, and kind of caveman's her way around. She is officially into everything. So today I went and bought a couple of new outlet covers - the ones where when you take the cord out, a little thing slides over the opening. Oh yeah, she can totally pull things out of the outlet now. Yikes. I also got a couple of cabinet locks. She is getting more and more personality everyday, and along with it, she's getting more vocal. The good news is she is rarely bored. The bad news is she's starting to get picky.
We took her to her 9 month check up yesterday. She's doing great, although the only thing that seems to be growing very quickly is her little noggin. I have no idea how to get her to drink (instead of the current chewing) from a sippy cup. We have every brand of sippy cup known to man! Any tips?
Anyways, she's pulling up on everything. She loves it. She also likes to crawl into tiny, thin spaces and then freak out when she gets stuck. But she ALWAYS takes the narrow road! A sign of things to come perhaps?! Who knows.
We went to Babies'R'Us today to get some baby safe things. I have a habit (that will soon need breaking) of picking up toys and giving them to Davie to see what she does. If she goes for the packaging instead of the toy (which she always does) then I know it's not necessary. Well today I saw this adorable Lamaze brand toy (I LOVE LAMAZE TOYS!). A big octopus with legs that you can squeeze and they have some kind of little inflatable wind instrumenty noise, all making a different tone. She BEAMED! She just stared at it and then at me and then at it and then at me, smiling all the while. She grabbed it up tight, and so I had to get it. It is her new bud.
Here's some pics.
