Ali turned 9 months old on Thursday. She is such a sweet and precious baby! No teeth yet, and she is still not crawling. But, just yesterday she started rocking back and forth on her knees so it won't be long. She will get up on her knees and instead of moving forward she rolls over. She can scoot around on her bottom really well. She is "talking" quite a bit. Da, da, da, ba, ba, ba and hi (although she doesn't know what she is saying, of course) are some of her "words". She enjoys watching the baby Einstein videos and she laughs and talks to the TV. She is eating small bites of food and finally figured out how to feed them to herself. And she can hold her own bottle now too. We discovered on vacation that she loves guacamole. She is still a great sleeper and always has a big bright smile for her brother and sister.
