I can''t believe that Abby is almost 9 months! Mike and I were talking this weekend about needing to start planning her first birthday!! Our family has some big event in the month for the next 5 months.
January- Our 4 year anniversary
February- Mike''s 30th
March- Leah''s 30th
April- Abby''s First Birthday
May- My sister is getting married!!!
Abby is growing up so fast! We just cherish every moment with her, as we have from day one. I am just amazed at all that she is learning every day.
She is so close to crawling. She scoots her butt in the air and pushes forward (sometimes backward) but hasen''t gotten her arms involved in the motions. It is like she is side swimming kind of. We are working on it!!!
We bought the next step of car seats this weekend. It is going to be different having to physically carry her every where. It was so nice to have the carrier. We will also be safety proofing the house in the next week or so. We want to before our next dr. appointment, because she asked us if we had at the last one and we hadn''t. We know that it will be a flash and she will be moving all around the house.
Abby is waving "hi" and "bye bye" all of the time now. It is like a princess wave, she gently moves her arm back and forth. When she sees herself in the mirror, she waves to herself. When she sees cars go by, she waves to them. It is too cute!!! She also smiles at everyone that she can. You would think that her mouth would hurt after a while. What can we say....she is a happy baby!!
Her favorite song to sing with mommy is Itsy Bitsy Spider. She tries to do the hand motions and everything! She has the "wash the spider out" part right.
Abby calls her daddy, "da, da" or just "da". She is also saying "ba" which means bottle.
She says mama, but she hasn''t said it directly to me yet:)
We are working on some sign language as well. We are doing "more", "all done" and "eat". This all revolves around food, which is one of her favorite things!
