Big girl

We are in the middle of month 9! Ellie is cuter and cuter as the days go by. She LOVES her Tigers hat (thanks Becky) and enjoys watching the games with Scott and myself. She is very content to sit and hang out and doesn't show much interest in crawling. She LOVES to stand so I spend a lot of time holding her in a stance. She also wants to pull up on me and reaches out when I walk by. We are in no rush for mobility. When I was a baby, I didn't crawl until 10 months or walk until 15, so I think she might be taking after me. We don't care though, we are enjoying every minute of her development. What she lacks in mobility, she makes up in personality. She is always laughing and talking and pulling crazy faces. She now says MAMA and I couldn't be more thrilled. She says lots of cute combinations and we spend hours chatting. She's rediscovered her self in the mirror and talks and smiles at her reflection. She alternates head shakes and nods and cracks up with the other baby in the mirror does the same thing. She is starting to feed herself and loves puffs and cheerios, but she gets frusterated when she misses. She also gags on these, so we're taking a little break on figer foods. We've also stepped up into the DSLR world! Here are some pics on my (our) new camera. I've been having so much fun playing with all of the settings but Ellie is getting annoyed with me always in her face.
