Months 8 and 9!!!

Today is Isabel's 9 month birthday!!! She has been out in the world for as long as she was in my tummy! It is so hard to believe that a year and a half ago we found out that our world was going to forever change. I look back on pictures of us before Isabel was born, and can hardly even remember what it was like to not have my wiggly, busy, happy little baby in my life. I also can't believe that it has been well over a year since I had a full night's sleep!

Here is what Isabel has been up to for the last two months

8 months:
-Can get into the crawling position
-Has two more top teeth for a total of 6 teefers!
-Has a US passport
-Traveled to Mexico
-Can pull herself up from sitting to standing when you hold her hands

9 months:
-Can go from back to tummy, to crawling position, to sitting up
-Can walk while someone holds onto her hands
-Waves her hand when she hears the song "Los Pajaritos"
-Scrunches up her face & huffs/puffs when you ask her "donde esta la viejita?"
-Pulls herself to standing in her crib-Does a funny scooting-crawl
-Isn't sleeping through the night!!!
-Still isn't interested in solid food very much
-Had juice from a sippy cup.

These photo shoots are getting harder and harder! All I want is for her to sit still next to the bunny so we can see a size comparison! But no! She has to eat the bunny, play with mom's phone, take off her diaper, nibble on her diaper and get flustered at all the commands mommy keeps throwing at her!
