Sonja turned 9 months a couple weeks ago. 3/4 of a year...unbelievable!
At her check up, she weighed in just over 16lbs, dropping off the curve but still on the chart. Anna did the same thing when she started crawling, so we weren't surprised.

So, what is she doing these days?
She lets go of furniture and stands alone for 10-15 seconds but no steps yet. She can walk with a walker toy, but it's still a little hairy when they come to the wood floor and really get scooting. She says "Anna" and "Mama"...and when she says Mama, I'm useless as a parent- I'll do whatever she wants if she just says "mama" first. She calls for Anna anytime they are separated and that can break your heart real quick. She eats three meals a day and does so without any teeth. Her favorite food is Cheerios. She detests any food I spend more than five minutes making for her. Her favorite activity in the world is the bath so she spends the best part of her day strategically becoming filthy enough to warrant a bath. And her fastest crawling times are clocked when the bathroom door is inadvertantly left open. She likes looking at books.

And she love, love, loves hanging on and around her daddy.


  1. Those pictures of Sonja and Chris are adorable! So good to see you the other day...

    So sweet Missy! Having two kids is a lot of work but there are those sweet moments, like Sonja calling Anna, that make it all worth it. Allie had her 6 month check up the other day, she weighed in at 17lbs 3oz although She hasn't started crawling yet.

  3. I can't believe she is 9 months old! That is crazy! I love this post -- such sweet things to remember.

  4. In the picture of the girls in matching outfits their mouths are wide open. Were they watching the Steelers in action, while wearing Ravenette outfits?

    This is the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's birth. I liked the line from The Raven (slightly altered) "Quoth the Ravens, Nevemore"
