All Grown Up

Okay, let's be honest. Nobody really wants to hear about the bathroom remodel on the blog. Everyone just wants the Anna udpate. So here's the latest. Anna had her nine month check up a couple weeks ago and weighed in at a surprisingly trim 19 lbs 2 oz. (50th percentile believe it or not.) Apparently, she only seems chubby because she's carrying so much in her cheeks and head. (For the record, her head measurement was in the 90th percentile!)

She's crawling around like a maniac and getting into everything. Our lifestyle has had to adjust quite a bit. I'm sure I say "no" about 107 times a day now. The other big new thing for Anna is her determination to feed herself. She turns her nose up at most spoon-fed, pureed baby food now because she wants to be in charge. It's a messy ordeal, but it makes her happy. The best part is when she makes what I've dubbed "mousey face" in between bites. I finally caught it on video:

That is just about the most adorable face I've ever seen!!! I would feed her all day just to see it over and over. :)

We remember those "messy" meals. What fun!? She looks so cute, too.
