9 months old!

9 months already? Where is the time going? Seems like it was only yesterday that I was snuggling a newborn and now she's practically a big girl!

Markin weighs 18 pounds 15 ounces and is 27 inches long (or so they say -- I only measured her at 26 1/2 :). She's at the 50% for weight and 35% for length/height. Of course, her head circumference is at the 80%!

Likes: Reading (and eating) books. Her favorite toys are the ones that she got for Christmas and make noise, of course! However, she also loves to just sit on my lap and play with my water bottle or have me sing to her - she'll do that all morning long :)

Dislikes: Bath in the big tub - she still prefers her little baby tub (and getting into "trouble" while bathing by grabbing at the faucet and anything I'm stupid enough to leave within her reach!) We're going to keep trying the ducky Auntie gave her to see if she'll eventually like baths again.

New accomplishments - she's getting better and better at asking me for what she wants. She has "signs" for favorite songs and games, along with the start of "more." No crawling yet, she she rolls to get what she wants - but then gets mad when she gets stuck in a corner! Markin is successfully eating puffs and rice rusks without choking!
