Every time I look at Margot's face it makes me so happy. It's hard for me to believe that she's so close to a year old--I feel like she's going to be a baby forever. She has become so wiggly and crawls everywhere in the house. She pulls up onto her knees and gets into a sitting position that way too. She loves bread and string cheese right now. She has also mastered the straw, which is exciting for me. She waves, and claps by slapping one hand on top of another. She loves to babble, and usually has a distinct "ma-ma-ma" for when she's hungry. She hasn't had her nine month appointment yet, but she is definitely a tiny thing--I recently measured her length at 25 inches, which is small for her age. I'm pretty sure she's under the 10th percentile for height and weight, but she looks well proportioned to me (with chunky thighs to boot). She's finally started sleeping through the night more regularly, which is amazing. Still has no teeth. Still a bit clingy, but getting better. A few people held her for a while at church last week. Maybe it was just me being extra clingy? Probably. Margot loves to move her arms to music, and squawk like a bird. We call her "Lady Bird" so much that Theo usually calls her that, which is pretty cute.
