9 months (and 8 days!)

Ok, is Caroline seriously 9 months old?? She is getting bigger and cuter everyday! I am having so much fun watching her grow and learn new things. This was a crazy month. My mom and John's mom both made it down for a visit; Caroline enjoyed swimmning lessons; John traveled for his job for the 1st time; and Caroline and I went on a road trip to see Aunt Amy and meet little Charlie! Check out her new facts:

*She weighs 18 lbs (25th percentile), is 28 inches tall (75th percentile), and her head circumference is 17.2 inches (25-50th percentile).

*She is talking up a storm and loves to see how loud she can's usually when we're at a store when she decides to play with her volume button!

*She is a cruiser! She can make her way back and forth on the couch and around the coffee table. She's also taken a few steps with her little push toy.

*She has decided she likes bananas and does a little dance when I hold one up. She's doing really well feeding herself fruits, puffs, Mum Mums, etc.

*She will eat the veggies I make now. I need to get a little more daring and try some new stuff. We will be tackling chicken when we get back from our trip to MS.

*She is having major separation anxiety. She cries hard and clings to me when I drop her off at daycare. And on our trip, she cried whenever I got out of her sight. This is NOT a fun phase!!

*Her new favorite toy is her Yertle the Turtle. It's almost as big as she is, and she loves to snuggle with it when she's going to sleep.

*Still only 2 teeth...but the top left one is starting to poke through!
