Nine Months Old

Abby is nine months old today. It doesn't seem possible!She is all personality - People-Loving Personality, at that. She's got a smile for everyone.
She's not talking, but she is starting to use some signs. She also claps and plays peek-a-boo. She is a CLIMBER. She is also an expert crawler. She pulls up, but she doesn't walk holding onto furniture or anything else. She has just now got her balance to where she can stand alone briefly, but she's too shaky for walking.

She feeds herself vegetables and beans. She is eating three meals a day and nursing with each one. She also nurses once mid-morning and once before bed. She is sleeping about twelve hours at night and she takes two naps during the day of about 1 1/2 hours each.
She had her well-check today and she is TALL. She is 30 inches. That is as tall as an average 14-month old. It put her in the 100th percentile for height (again). She is in the 50th percentile for weight. She is wearing 12 month clothes and 18 month (!) clothes. She wears size 3 diapers.
We love this girl!
