Alexis turned 9 months on Tuesday, 7/6/10, and I just cant believe how fast she's growing up! I took her to the doctor's office yesterday for her 9 month checkup. She weighs 18 lbs, 13 oz and is 29 inches tall. She is learning something new almost everyday. She crawls around extremely fast, can pull herself up to stand, and even lets go for a few seconds! She learned how to say the word "baby"over the weekend and loves to say it, along with "da-da." She hasn't said mama in a really long time. She's doing very well with her Your Baby Can Read videos. She recognizes the word "wave" and "clap" pretty well and loves to wave hello and goodbye to everyone. She also loves clapping and cheering, especially for herself. She's so smart and fun! Now we just need to get her to sleep in her own crib. :) We love her so much. Thank God for an amazing daughter and that I can stay home and raise her!
