9 months and crazy as ever

Audrey is now 9 months old and is keeping us on our toes!  Here are a couple of recent developments (By the way, I totally realize that this is not really interesting to anyone other than me, and maybe some family.  So this is really just a post for me, so that I can look back and remember what she was like at 9 months):

  • She’s still in the 90% for height (29 inches) and 75% for weight (20lbs 7oz).  Obviously there are some strong Carretto genes to thank for the height.
  • She loves to be upside down and to dive head first off of things.  This makes me very nervous!
  • She can crawl up the entire staircase in less than a minute.
  • She has learned to open drawers and cabinets, and does so frequently!
  • She loves to clap, give “high 5’s”, and will give hugs now (one of the best things ever!).
  • She has 3 teeth.
  • I caught her licking the trash can the other day (not one of the best things ever!).  
  • She squeals with excitement when she hears the garage door open when Andrew gets home.
  • She loves to “cruise” around the furniture and can stand by herself for a few seconds.
  • Continues to “growls” a lot, says “da da da da da”, and has learned how to scream/squeal really loudly (she usually reserves this trick for restaurants and the grocery store).
  • She LOVES Dino.  Dino HATES her.

I gave birth to a bear

Audrey growls.  That’s right, growls.  She does it so often, that we hardly even notice it anymore.  However, I was in the grocery store the other day, and I heard this lady say, “What is that strange noise?”…it was Audrey, growling.    Anyway, we finally caught her doing it on video, so I thought I would share it.  She also just learned how to clap.  🙂  

This post is dedicated to my friend, Jerry, who loves to growl at/with Audrey.

 

 

By the way, did you catch the little piece of carrot that almost came flying out of her mouth about half way through the video?  I didn’t even know she was eating that at the time.

Today was just one of those days.  I think I must have said “NO” at least 18,000 times today, and Audrey isn’t so fond of that word:

99% of the time Audrey is just like Andrew: laid back, go with the flow, happy, etc.  Today, I realized that there is at least 1% of me in there too.  🙂

She has a room full of toys that are brightly colored and make funny noises…so, what’s her favorite one?  The doorstop of course.  What’s her second favorite?  The bulb syringe.

 At least it was clean, well relatively clean anyway.

Audrey loves standing up now, and will pull up on anything/anyone that she can.  Sometimes she gets a little ahead of herself, as evident from the bruise on her head and the scratch on her nose.  Poor kid.

Hurricane head

I love the little swirl on the top of a baby’s head, but doesn’t it look like a hurricane?

We just put in new door stops throughout our house.   These are far superior to the old ones…they’re louder.
