9 months old

Adelyn went for her 9 month check up and she weighed 20 pounds 14.5 ounces (79th percentile), is 31 inches long (100th percentile -woah, she's long!!), and her head circumference is 17.5 inches (60th percentile). Right when she turned 9 months old, she started crawling on all fours like a champ. She's saying "mama", "dada", "bye", and "hey". Often, she'll say "mama" in her growling voice. We're working on animal sounds. She can moo like a cow, growl like a lion, hiss like a snake, and owwwww like a wolf. This is not always on command though....still working on that part! :) I still firmly believe she's going to be a silly girl! She waves at everything- people, animals, trees, or nothing at all. Her wave is very dainty (lots of wrist movement). She's also into pointing at everything. She has gotten 2 more teeth for a total of 5 (new ones are on either side of her top middle teeth). Adelyn likes to clear things....she'll take every book off the shelf, every toy out of a basket, or every object off the coffee table.
Seth had race #2 of the Grand Am season in Miami (Homestead). Bobby, Brenda, Seth, Adelyn, and I all went down for 2 nights. Adelyn was a real trooper! She was way off her nap schedule for basically 3 days, but was such a good girl. I was really proud of her. I have to say, I'd NEVER go on that trip without help! Brenda was with me all the time helping. Bobby and Brenda even had Adelyn sleep in their hotel room the night before Seth's race so that Seth could get uninterrupted sleep. She slept through the night, but the coughs and various noises she makes wakes you up from time to time. We'll keep learning the tricks of "how to take an infant to the race track". Seth finished 4th! They started from the back, so that was quite an accomplishment! We had a great time!

Valentine's Day- Bobby and Brenda kept Adelyn overnight and Seth and I spent the night in Buckhead. We stayed at the St. Regis and had dinner at Chop's. It was a wonderful night out!

Adelyn climbed the stairs for the first time (2/19)
My parents came in town. We went to the World of Coca Cola. It was the first pretty day we'd had in quite some time!
