Nine Months Old!

First, I'd like to apologize for my lack of posting over the past month. Abigail has been working like crazy these past few weeks to cut her first two teeth. She's been extremely fussy, has developed a pretty bad diaper rash from teething, and has started to wake up frequently again during the night. Needless to say, I've been exhausted and she hasn't let me out of her sight during the day to accomplish much around the house. Blogging has, unfortunately, taken a back seat for now. I promise to get back into the swing of things as soon as I can.

Here's what Abbey's been up to over the past month:
  • I know I mentioned it before, but she's cruising! She's attempted to take some steps on her own without holding on to anything, but she fell down right away. I'm certain she'll be walking by Christmas.
  • She wears anywhere from a size 6 month, to 9 month, to 6-12 month clothing depending on the brand. She also wears a size 3 in shoes and a size 4 in diapers.
  • We've moved on from finger foods. While she still gets her bottles regularly and I still make her baby food, she now eats off of our plates as well. This is so much easier than making a seperate "meal" just for her. I'm very ready to do away with baby food altogether.
  • She now crawls faster than I can run. She's also learned how to open all of our kitchen cabinets - yikes!
  • She can point at things!
  • She's so over her Jumperoo and Exersaucer. She'd much rather play freely on the floor.
  • Her two front teeth (on the bottom) are just about to cut through her gums.
  • She now rides in her Britax convertible carseat.
  • She's contantly trying to talk. She's mastered saying "momma" and "dadda".
  • We've had to drop her crib mattress to just about the lowest setting as she was attempting to climb out of the crib and pull the monitor off of it's shelf.
  • She knows her name and will respond to it when called.
