Luca is 9 months old!
Today Luca turned 9 months. Poor kid has been dealing with a bad cold for over a week now, so she wasn't in much of a mood to celebrate, but we DID go out to Italian in her honor.
She's still creeping around like a wild woman, and seems to have decided that crawling is for the birds.
Her legs are very strong, so she loves to army-crawl over to us and reach her hands out, and when we grab them she contorts her body and pulls to standing. She also pulls herself up on the exercauser.
She has also discovered the joys of grabbing the spoon from us while we feed her, which often results in pureed fruits and veggies all over her face and the highchair.
And, she has truly found her voice recently.
She repeats sounds like 'mama', 'dada', and 'baba', but also has repeated sounds like 'yeah' and 'puh'. It's pretty dang cute. Even cuter is when you sing a song to her and she 'sings' along.
She continues to be the most amused by the dogs, especially when we are telling them 'no'. I have a feeling she won't be so amused by 'no' when it is directed at her.
We fall more and more in love with her every day. We're always being stopped by people when we're out so they can comment on her beautiful eyes and sweet smile. Even cuter is that she can be in a BAD mood, but the second someone calls her pretty, she smiles. I swear she knows what it means!
We also took Luca on her first trip to the voting booth for the Presidential primaries.
It's been a great 9 months!
