Happy 9 Months, Olivia!
Although you are not officially mobile via crawling yet, you can pretty much get to anywhere you want by rolling. You have been known to roll all the way down the hallway from the living room to get to the bedrooms and can roll over to where your toys are in any given room. You are also not pulling up to anything yet, but just this past month you began to LOVE to practice standing with either Daddy or I nearby to make sure those chubby little legs don't give out on you unexpectedly.
You definitely don't mind being on-the-go and this month you even took your first trip to the Children's Museum. You typically enjoy running errands with me and you are definitely the most well behaved at the grocery store and Target. In fact, you are so well behaved that I hardly even know that you are there. I think it is because there is so much to see and observe...in addition to the fact that EVERYONE always stops us to comment on how adorable you are. Plus, it doesn't hurt that you got to experience your very first cookie from the grocery store bakery this month!
You love to laugh and will always join in with your brother and sister when they are having a giggle fit. It is all the more fun for you if the giggle fit was induced by something cute that you did. You bring so much joy into our family and you always bring out the best in all of us. Whenever you are around, it is almost impossible to be in a bad mood or crabby because your smiles and giggles are contagious!
