nine. months. old.
this little miss is getting SO BIG! i just can't believe it. here's a brief update on baby gemma bird... she has six teeth. four on top and two on the bottom. she can stand up all by herself without holding onto anything. she can walk while alongside the couch or the table while holding on. she loves to open books and read out loud "da bee da pah. aah du too da." she loves to giggle and sing along to songs totally off key. she likes to scrape things with those little bottom teeth, like dvd jackets, her crib railing and her toys and books. she enjoys long walks in her stroller in the evenings and likes to look at everything, cars driving by, people on bikes, joggers, neighborhood cats, you name it. making big messes are her specialty! she loves anything with fur... we've got an little animal lover on our hands. she loves puzzles and gnawing on their pieces. she likes getting into things that she shouldn't like mama & papa's record collection and she is so curious to find out what kitty food tastes like... so far she hasn't gotten a nibble, but she's determined let me tell you.
her little personality is beaming. the expressions on her face are absolutely priceless! she is definitly a mama's girl... (and i love it!) my most favorite thing of the moment is the noise she makes when she cries. she makes this helicopter sound with her little tounge. it sounds like she's rolling her R's, loudy. i have never in my life seen a baby do this. it's hilarious. i will try to capture it on video one of these days so you can see what i mean. ;) she also likes to play dress up, or at least likes trying to... she will grab a tiny shirt and try to put it over her head over and over and over again. it's just the cutest. she's always on the move and rarely sits still. at times it's exhausting but always a lot of fun!
being this baby's mama is about as good as it gets. i LOVE her so very much!
