Rachel turns 9 months

Our beautiful baby girl is already 3/4 of the way to her first birthday! We are just amazed at how much she has changed this past month. She weighs 18lb 5oz. (45%) and is 27 1/4in long (30%).

Rachel is crawling now but prefers to army crawl. She can go from the crawl position on all fours to a sitting position without any assistance. She loves to pull herself up to a standing position. She will stand for the longest time before getting tired. She is starting to wave bye-bye, give "five", and walk while holding onto our hands. She says "mama" and "dada" all the time now. Rachel still has no teeth yet, but her bottom gums are swollen so we should have some teeth coming real soon. Our doctor told us it's better when they come in later. Even though we have no control over when they come in.

Rachel loves playing with all of JP's toys which he doesn't like to much. We are working on the whole share, sissy had it first type of thing. JP loves telling his sister what she can and cannot do. He tells her "no sceam sissy" or "no sceam Rachel" (he cannot say the letter "r"), "no spit sissy" (when she blows the raspberries), "no touch sissy" (especially if it's one of his toys). He often gives his sister the same rules that apply to him, even though she does not understand. At some point we will have to put a stop to it but for now we think it's cute.

Our cute "Princess Angle Eyes!!"

She loves bath time!
