9 months

Avery is 9 months old today.  She is still a super baby and has even been amazing through this trip and multiple time changes.  She sleeps like a champ and is finally eating like one.  Well real food that is.  She is not a fan of baby food and despite never having taught her the first baby sign, she signs all done whenever I try to give it to her.  She loved Easter and all of the amazing food it brought, especially mom's steamed artichokes.  She ate her weight in them.  I love how big she opens her mouth when we are feeding her something she likes.  And how she yells when we don't shovel it in fast enough.  Pizza, eggs, green beans, potatoes and cheerios have all been added to the list just this week.  She is pulling up on everything and even cruising a little if she wants something out of reach badly enough.  She has thankfully learned to sit as well because, well, that game in the crib at night was getting a bit old.  She loves to be outside and is fascinated with her sisters.  She is not a big fan of the formula now that I am home full time and will rarely take it.  She is quickly turning into a mommy's girl as well, much to daddy's hurt and heartache.  She still has no teeth but the top two look awfully close.  She is super smart and making a ton of new sounds.  Still not saying mama.  Just dadda and nanna and what sort of sounds like huuh?  She is just a beautiful addition to our family both inside and out.  She is our HAPPY BABY!
