9 Months Old

My internet has been down for the last little while, and before that Travis and I got the worst stomach flu ever! I hadn't thrown up in over eight years until last week! Luckily it only lasted twenty four hours. Thank goodness my for my in-laws, they took Hali all day from 1:00 in the afternoon until 9:30 that night because Travis and I couldn't even get off the couch to feed and play with her (yeah it was pretty bad!)

Enough about that, yes another month has past quickly and it is time yet again for Hali's monthly update. She is doing so many fun things right now. She is crawling all over the place and getting into everything! She has mastered pulling herself up to a standing position on the couch, chairs, us, her crib; so she is getting very strong. One of my favorite tricks she does now is she blows bubbles out of her spit. I don't know that I've ever seen another baby do it before (not saying there aren't any). She opens her mouth really slow and blows huge bubbles. It is so funny and she does it all the time. She is now saying "ma ma", "ba ba", and "bye bye" pretty consistently. Hali loves to play peek-a-boo. She puts her blanket up to her face until you say "where's Hali?" then she pull her blanket off her face with a big huge smile. She is getting really attached to her mommy and daddy, but warms up to others after a while. Hali is constantly jabbering and even more consistently putting everything in her mouth. She is my little vacuum; I try to vacuum every few days just because she finds the smallest pieces on our carpet or rug and sticks them all in her mouth. She also loves to eat paper, and I think she has almost consumed a whole book. Now that is what I call talent! Hali is getting to try more and more grown up food, and one of her favorites now is a nice juicy pickle! She still loves it when anybody is talking on the phone, and she is starting to jabber whenever I let her talk to someone on my cell phone.

I put these pictures of Hali on because this just gives you an idea of how mischievous she is. I had all of the toys spread out on the floor for her to play with while I went to take the clothes out of the dryer. When I came back (it couldn't have been more than three minutes) she had taken the vent off the wall! I have no idea how she did it. Then I look at her again and she had taken the door stop off the wall and had it in her mouth. Let's hope our new house can survive this little girl!
