Hope is now NINE months old! She is a busy, busy baby: crawling everywhere and pulling up on anything she can reach. She now announces she's done with a nap by standing in her crib and yelling until someone rescues her! She has two teeth and tried a lot of new foods this month, even getting the idea of how to feed herself. She got to spend time with her Mimi and Pop Hamilton AND Kitten and Papa Cook, who all came to Mobile to help us get settled this month. She was reunited with Penny and Ellie after two months apart during the move, and she thinks they are the funniest things ever and likes to steal their toys. She weighs 16 pounds, 3 ounces and is wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes. And she is finally (usually) sleeping through the night!
She is happy, happy, happy: our little burst of joy.
