Charlotte is nine months!  She is crawling, pulling up, and cruising.  She has four teeth:  along with the two on the bottom she has two "vampire teeth" on the top - just in time for Halloween!  She loves to play peek-a-boo.  She is very social and has two BFFs at school.  She is starting to eat table food and even ate a beignet (sans sugar) a few weeks ago.
At her nine-month check-up, Charlotte weighed 17 lbs 2 oz, which puts her in the 25th percentile for weight.  She had dropped down to the 5th - 10th percentile at her 6-month check-up, but she is now back to where she was.  I think that she was just a little behind hitting a growth spurt.  At 17 lbs, she has gained a whopping 10 lbs since birth!  She is 28 inches long, which puts her back in the 50th percentile.

Several weeks ago Charlotte had tubes put in her ears.  Her surgery went well and the staff at Children's South took excellent care of us.  Just a few days after the procedure she started making several new noises.  I guess she just couldn't hear before!  She now says "bye-bye" (while waving "bye-bye"), Dada (and sometimes "Daddy") and she occasionally says "Mama."
I couldn't resist snapping this picture when I went to wake Charlotte up one morning.  It looks like she's about grown out of her 6-month jammies.
To Joey's delight, Charlotte is finally big enough to ride in the "beep-beeps" at Publix.  And now I have room to stow the groceries, unlike a few months ago.
The girls sit and play together.
 "Too tight, Joey!"
 This tired girl fell asleep at the dinner table, puffs in hand.
 Charlotte got many compliments on her Halloween costume.

  1. Got the dress up trunk with all the costumes for my daughter's 4th birthday. She opened it three (3) days ago and has enjoyed playing dress up. Most of the blouses have already split at the seams. Very poor quality. She isn't rough with toys or apparel, it's just that the costume pieces are sewn very poorly and will come apart quickly.
