Emily had to "taste" it too! (Look at those eye lashes!):
Sisters are way cooler than dogs!
Today, mommy & I were talking about the people in Haiti, and how sad it is that many of the people there don't have anything anymore. As always, I decided to "sing" about the things that they needed, and what I'd like to give to them. I decided to pack up some of my shirts that don't fit me anymore to give to the little girls there, and for a split second, I wanted to send them my TV too...

This is just a cute picture of Emily that mommy wanted to share!
I'm becoming quite the artist these days... mommy started folding my drawing paper in thirds, and now I'm getting really good at drawing the head in the top box, the body in the middle and the legs in the bottom! Notice this picture of daddy even has hair, fingers, a belly button, and his NAME!!!!
During the show we saw:

I am 9 months old today! I have now spent more time in this great big world than in my mommy's tummy. I have been really busy these past 9 months, and am getting SO big! I am a very happy baby MOST of the time, and love smiling, laughing & dancing. BUT... I know what I want, and let everyone know when I don't get it!
I'm getting SO close to crawling, and even love rolling everywhere and scooting around backwards on my belly. I love standing up to play at my play table, but I'm not so sure about taking any steps yet. I love to "talk" just like my sister, but it mostly comes out in bursts of yelling, "ma-ma-ma" and "da-da-da". I think I need to learn sign language soon so I can let everyone know what I'm talking about!
Mommy and daddy are doing a great job helping me with my ezcema... I get lots of baths, they've gone through TUBS of Aquaphor, and mommy does a great job treating my flare-ups! I'm hardly ever itchy anymore, and my skin actually feels pretty soft! I'm still hoping to outgrow this soon, but in the meantime, keep up the good work mommy & daddy!
The biggest news is that last week I FINALLY figured out how to sleep without being swaddled! It was so nice being all wrapped up, but mommy said I was getting too big for my blanket, and it's even more fun now that I can roll around my crib! Except for the nights when my teeth are hurting (I have 2 already, and I think a few more are on the way), I sleep even better now... usually 10-12 hours at night, and take 2 good naps during the day!
Some of my favorite things these days are:
* Jumping in my johnny jumper
* Walking backwards in my walker
* Eating puffs (sweet potato are my favorites)
* Cuddling and giving great big "squeeze" hugs
* Putting everything in my mouth
* Playing with my sister and Cody
* Going shopping with mommy and sitting in the cart
* Reading (especially books like Pat the Bunny)
Some things I'm not really loving these days:
* Eating chunky foods (I only like the smooth stuff, and even then I'm very picky)
* Wearing bibs (I always try to pull them off)
* ANYTHING over my head (I don't like getting dressed, and I'm not very fond of peek-a-boo either)
I can't wait to see what the next few months bring... Crawling??? Cruising??? My first steps??? Eating more exciting solids??? More teeth??? Talking??? Learning sign language??? It's going to be a blast!
