9 Months

Ivy has officially been outside the womb as long she was inside!  Here are a few updates about Ivy.
  • She started crawling two days before Christmas, so just she was just a little under 8 months. She had been scooting and army crawling for quite a while before that, but that was the day she started crawling with correct form.
  • She pulls herself up on anything, even if it is just a few inches higher than the ground.  She loves to stand.  
  • She is a huge fan of jumping.
  •  She has recently learned how to clap and will often do it on command without someone showing her first.  Sometimes she will clap when I enter the room, which is the greatest self-esteem booster ever.  
  • She loves music and loves to dance to just about any song she hears.  She loves this video of Carol of the Bells.  We may have a cellist on our hands.  She loves when Abby and I sing to her and her favorite song is definitely "The Itsy Bitsty Spider."  She is so fascinated with the hand motions.
  • She and Abby are becoming better friends everyday.  It is so fun to watch.  No one can make her laugh the way Abby can.  Abby is a very good big sister.  She is Ivy's best cheerleader and is always looking out for her.
  • Ivy scrunches her eyes and nose when she smiles.  We love it.
We sure love her and hate that she is growing up so fast!
