It's hard to believe she's already 9 months, and while I miss the newborn cuddly stage, I do love the stage she is at now. She stands for several seconds at a time, and I think she'll be taking her first steps pretty soon. She has learned to shake her head "no-no" and it's very cute; she also says, "dada" all the time. She did say "mama" a couple times and that was her first word, but of course, she said it while she was crying.
A friend of mine made her this AWESOME winter hat, so I took the opportunity to mark her 9 months with some photography.
