Getting her first and then second teeth
Friday, August 5, 2011
Charlotte is now 9 months old. At her last doctor appointment she was 17 pounds 14 ounces and 28.5 inches long and very healthy. Hooray.
But the craziest most life changing milestone is that Charlotte now crawls! Tiring but so fun! I have a video of this but we are having technical difficulties getting it uploaded. I will try again later.
Her 9th month started off great celebrating Todd's first Fathers Day. We went out to dinner and also spent the day with the Davis Family.
Charlotte also had her first 4th of July although we did nothing except dress her in a cute patriotic outfit. It was over 100 degrees here that day and the air is always thick with nasty fire cracker smoke. Hopefully next year will be better and we can take her to watch a real fireworks show.
The best part of the month was the BEACH HOUSE!!!! It was such a great week and I loved being with Charlotte the whole time. She has pretty strong "stranger anxiety" so she was pretty attached to me but she warmed up to everyone and definitely loved being around them. I plan on doing a full post on the week...someday, but in the meantime here is Charlotte discovering sand!

We are now closer to the big birthday than we are to her actual day of birth which is just insane to me. It makes me excited and then feel like crying basically all in the same second. I wonder if I will ever do a monthly post and not start with saying how fast time has been going. I kind of think not.
The cuteness factor is now in overload. Charlotte can now sit up on her own without tipping and just plays and plays and plays with her toys. Her favorite toy right now is the shape blocks and box that the Easter Bunny brought for her. The blocks are the perfect size for her little hands and one of them is always sticking them in her mouth. She likes to knock over the tower of blocks we build and she also will "bang" the blocks together with one in each hand. It is so cute. She also really likes her bouncer and is getting more into playing with the toys on it as well as bouncing.
We have had some development in the rolling department. Charlotte can roll...with the proper motivation such as the ipod. See...
