WELL, lots has happened in the last month with our, not so little, Austyn Claire. The biggest milestone was Austyn standing/pulling herself up. Santa brought her a music table and she absolutely loved it. We kept the legs on it, so we could teach her how to stand and play. Um, it took all of about a day for her to figure out how to get up to it all on her own. The next day I got a picture from her teacher at daycare of her standing in her crib. Yesterday, I put her in the crib for her photo shoot and went to get the camera. When I came back in, this is what I found...
Hi Mommy!! I'm so proud of myself!!
WHY DOES THAT KEEP FLASHING?!
You are still such a happy baby, though you have been known to throw a little tantrum when we don't let you get into things that you want to, ahem, the dog food?? You are 17.15 lbs and about 24 inches tall. You wear 6-9mos, 6-12mos, 9 month clothing and size 3 diapers. We have really been trying to introduce foods to you. You really like your new snack, PUFFS!! Your favorite are the strawberry apple. You still love applesauce, bananas, and pears. You recently have eaten spaghetti, and chicken noodle baby dinners for the first time. You LOVED the spaghetti and liked the chicken noodle ok. You talk up a storm, although it is still in your own language, so we have zero clue what you are talking about.
You laugh ALL THE TIME...even at NOTHING!! It is the sweetest sound in the world.
Your hair is growing so much, and I think you are teeting again.
You LOVE playing with your toys and like to bang your hand and toys on things.
You are still sooooo curious and don't like to spend time in one place. You have got things to do and people to see. You are always the most social baby in the room and love to flirt with and smile at everyone.
