Elsie

Elsie is 9 months old today!  It is hard to believe that it's already been nine months, yet it feels like she has always been part of the family.  Here are the top 10 things Elsie is up to right now...


1.  Trying so hard to crawl.  She is rocking on all fours, but the only direction she can go is backwards.  But she can roll anywhere she wants to go.

2.  Teeth!  Well, tooth.  The first one broke through finally!

3.  Real and Fake laughter.  She is very giggly, but will also join in with the family and laugh right along with us in a great burst of fake laughter.

4.  Curly cute.  Her strawberry blond hair is getting curlier and curlier, and it just matches her adorable personality.

5.  Skills.  She can clap her hands, wave bye-bye, and also raise her hands to the sky on cue (how big is elsie...SO big).  

6.  Friendly and shy.  She is smily to most strangers, but sometimes she hides her face shyly.  

7.  WIGGLY!  She is very squirmy.  Changing her diaper is a wrestling match, and the kiddo is strong!  She has some serious core strength!

8.  Sounds.  She is starting to practice saying different sounds.  "Baba, mama, and dada" are the main ones.  

9.  Good dexterity.  She is good at the 'grab & stuff' technique of eating.  A lot of it ends up down her shirt and in her lap, but she is getting better.

10.  Loved to pieces.  Sometimes I can physically feel my heart ache with love for my family.  She is so loved so much by Eric & me & Jenna, and all the extended family too.

I need to pick her up and squeeze her right this very minute. She is a love.
