nine months

how ...

...in the world...

...did you...

...get so big?


to be exact...jilly-girl weighed in at 19 lbs. 14.5 oz. and was 29 1/4 inches long today. she is crawling (still mostly in her army drag way...but seriously FAST!...and she has started to get up on her knees). she is pulling up on anything and everything and just starting to "cruise" a bit. she laughs...in fact, she laughs, giggles, smiles, and is otherwise content pretty much all the time. even in the midst of working on four of her top teeth at the same time (they are right there...just waiting to pop through), she is so incredibly content...the slighest of fussies and clingies...but seriously, nothing, really! she has, however, developed an insane love of being with us...enter the major tears when being left in the church nursery...or even at our date night swap at first (though, in her defense, she calms down quickly). bananas remain her favorite food...although now she likes to actually take bites out of them. she also digs avocado, squash, yogurt, sweet potato, and, well, anything that isn't peas, pretty much....oh, and waffles...this girly really DIGS frozen waffles! dah-dah is still her only real word. and today we discovered that she is a water-bug...stuck her in the kiddy pool in the backyard and the little booger went crazy...crawl/swimming all over the place, not even minding when she would fall over or get a mouthful of water. and she is pretty much in love with trying to keep up with her sisters...

jilly, you are a treasure. we are blessed. i love you.

How is she 9 months old already? Wasn't she just born? Well, she is adorable. It's amazing how quickly she is learning things to keep up with her sisters. I bet they love to help her. :)
