Audrey at 9 Months

Nine months old, can you believe it?! These days it’s hard to get Audrey to sit still long enough to take her picture. She’s Army crawling all over the place, eating lots of different foods, exploring new things, cutting four new teeth and laughing/smiling all day.

I think I say this every month but this might be my favorite stage so far. I like that she’s more mobile, more “chatty,” and more engaged with us. I can tell she’s starting to understand me a little. For instance, she can tell from my tone when I’m playful and when I’m serious. While playing on the floor, she frequently looks up at me to smile or show me a toy. She loves to be with Dan and I wherever we are, and she crawls after Willie kitty until he runs away. It’s hilarious to watch!

Audrey’s had a few adventures this month, including another plane trip this time to Kansas for our annual Kansas State University (my alma mater) Homecoming weekend.
