Rosie is 9 months old today. She had her 9 month well baby check today -- she is 17 1/2 lbs and 28 inches tall. Unfortunately, she was not actually well as it turned out she had a very bad ear infection. Hopefully she'll be better soon.
She has two bottom teeth, and the corner of one top tooth has just come through -- the poor baby's gums are swollen all around it. She is crawling well, pulling up well, and just starting to stand alone without support. She can get into anything she wants, and she wants to get into everything! She is very stubborn and persistent, but is not easily upset at all. She is a very, very happy baby. Even with super painful teething, and the ear infection we only just found out about, she has been only mildly cranky. Her grumpy is other babies' normal!
She can say "mama," "dada," "dog," "kitty," and "kiss." Bob insists that she said "tools" but I can't attest to that. She does bounce up and down and say "heh heh heh" whenever Bob is using a power tool. We don't really have any recent pictures -- not my fault, I don't have a camera. I think my parents have some on their computer from about a month ago (my dad's birthday) that I never saw. . .
Alas, she does not seem to be a true redhead after all. So we're going to have to return her and get our money back.
