Lena is 9 months!!

Lena LOVES her little play-table Dad bought her! she can hold herself up and play for a long time. The past week, Lena is learning how to stand alone for up to 20 seconds at a time! She did it quite a few times this morning and will soon stand all by herself, all the time!! It seems she is changing to us so quickly the past two weeks.

She is starting to "crinkle" her nose, and over-exaggerates it about everything, it is hilarious! I'll have to post a picture of that soon.

Mommy is trying to learn how to do her hair, but Lena's babysitter, Heidi, is much better at it than I am. Heidi was trying to teach me last night when I went to pick Lena up, but I'm going to have to practice! My pigtails never turn out as cute as Heidi's. I new skill I need to learn....

Lena has her little "pincer" finger grasp down and is starting to eat those little star-shaped cereals. She is a great eater of the fruits and veggies, but still doesn't like babyfood meats.

At the pediatrician's office 2 weeks ago, Lena's checkup was great! She is in the 45th percentile for weight, and 60th for height.

Papa and Lena reading a little scripture.....

This is Mommy's first attempt at doing Lena's hair. What you can't see in this picture is that 2 minutes later, the loose pigtails came out :)

This video is the first time Lena tried chicken....
