9-10 Months

Well, I'm a little behind on my entries here... seems I've been so busy the last couple months! We went to Nebraska over Labor Day weekend to visit Gramma and Grampa Andreasen. They got to babysit me while Mommy and Daddy went to the NE football game. They said someday I'll get to go too!

Later in the month, Mommy and I went to Le Mars for an extended weekend. Mommy was there for work for a couple days so she brought me along while Gramma and Grampa Ryan watched me. THEN, just last weekend, I took my first plane ride to San Antonio! Mommy's cousin got married so we stayed a couple extra days and checked out the town! I was really good on the plane. I took my nap when I was supposed to, then entertained the people around me for a bit.

Mommy and Daddy can't believe how big I'm getting! I'm crawling really fast now and even took my first 3 steps by myself last week! I get pretty daring moving and cruising around and have even taken a few stumbles, but it doesn't hurt for long. I almost have 4 teeth now! The top 2 are about half way through. I'm eating more solid foods now, and even some table food. I definitely like fruits more than veggies and I LOVE baby yogurt and cheese puffs! I like to be very vocal and most often you'll hear me say "Da da da da da"! Sometimes I say "De de" which Mommy and Daddy think means "Sadie". I'm waving (sometimes with both hands) and clapping now too!

A few weeks ago, we went to a pumpkin patch with our church group where I got my first pumpkin. I got to see some chickens, pigs and lambs, and even went on a hayride! I had fun, but didn't understand why I couldn't pet the lamb like I do Sadie!
