I can't believe how time does fly and how quickly Madelyn is growing up before our eyes.  Her 9 month well check was on Monday and she is 15lbs 13oz putting her in the 5-10%-tile and measuring almost 29in. which is the 95% mark.  So we got a tall and skinny one.  I swear I feed her something nearly every 2 hours!

At 9 months Maddy loves:
-sitting up and we wonder if she will ever attempt to crawl.  She has the hand movement down, just gotta get those knees moving!
-shiny metal or jeweled things (diamonds are a girl's best friend!)
-Cheerios, or any food we give her for that matter
-scratching things to see how they sound (or to see how they bleed, namely Daddy's face...she likes to be rough with Dan)
-mimicking our faces or noises - tongue clicks, scrunched noses, boo!, sticking out her tongue to lick her chin, kiss smacks, the list is endless.
-bouncing and spinning on her bum.  She seems to really like anything musical.
-tub baths
-touching foreheads with others she's not familiar with or getting reacquainted with - isn't there some animal that does that?
-hiding under a "tent" (sheet or blanket that I drape over us to play under until we need fresh air again)
-being outside (but that's been her favorite since birth)

She hates:
-getting her face or nose wiped, unless it's a warm rag
-the sight of the parent holding the spoon walking away from her when she is out of food

Actually, there really isn't much she hates.  She is a very happy girl most of the time!  We just love her so much and she makes our life so much fun and satisfying!  We are very blessed to be parents.

I love that I recognize a lot of these outfits on Maddy. It's so fun b/c I have such sweet memories of these things and now they're on the sweet girl of my best friend.
