Seems that time continues to go by faster, because it seems as if I was just writing your 8 month letter, and now here I am writing your nine month letter! Amazing!! You have done quite a bit in a month! Your adjusted age is almost 6 months. I would have to say that you are doing pretty great! Crawling already! Pretty great. You still can't sit that well, but that's OK! It's neat to see how different things are going with you. Your sister sat first and then crawled. I love seeing you grow, and seeing what you're going to do next. It is like... "Zoe's Mystery Movie". :)
I am not too worried about how advanced you are when it comes to crawling, sitting, walking, etc. I realize more and more everyday that you will get it when it is time. No rushing. I am savoring every moment of your "baby hood". :) I have watched your sister grow from birth to 5 years old, and so many times I wonder where all the time went!! She grew so fast! I remember thinking a lot when she was your age that I "couldn't wait" for her to walk, or crawl, or sit, or eat food on her own. I don't do that to you, because it seemed like as soon as I would think or say it when Angelina was little, it would happen. I learned not to rush the milestones. Instead, enjoy, and savor every moment of your "baby hood". And I do the same with your sister. Because one day you both will be adults, and I know that I will think at least once, "Wow! They are all grown up... ALREADY?!" I live for the memories, and I can't wait to create more with you... and of course your sissy! ;)
You have also had quite the taste test lately!! I know that I blogged about everything you tried while in Arizona! It's quite funny now. Mommy has spoiled you by letting try pretty much whatever she is eating! Now everytime I eat something, you make noises at me letting me know that you are there. As if I didn't know. And, if I don't react fast enough, you get louder until I look at you and say something. Even then, you bang your hands, and continue to make your sounds until I give you a taste. This happens mostly when ice cream is being consumed. LOL. You have learned the wonderful*ness, that is Ice Cream. :) You also love spaghetti sauce. It's like you know when those things are going to be made, because you start making groan sounds as soon as you see it. :) It's become very entertaining!! I love that you want to try the food, though! You have tried many many things, but I think when you tried Garlic Hummus and then wanted more, that was the most surprising. :) You are probably going to have the exquisite palate your sister has. :)
Zoe, we have had yet another wonderful month! You truly are a blessing, and I thank Jesus for you every single day!!
