Martha Ann….9 months and still absolutely precious! Trying to get a sweet shot of her was challenging. She is on the move and does not see the value of sitting in one spot. There is just too much to see and do.
Martha is cruising everywhere. She is now boldly traveling down the hallway to see where the other kiddos keep going. She loves to sit with Mary and help play the piano. And the kitchen cabinets are always fun to explore.
At 9 months, Martha has one little tooth and we think a second is on the way. She is not interested in eating yet. This distresses my older kiddos greatly. Martha will grab food on my plate, look at it and then drop it. I keep reminding them that when she is ready, she’ll eat at the table. No rush!
Over the past few days, Martha has shown that when the mood strikes her, she can stand on her own. I can see her definitely walking before she is a year. If you ask her about it, I’m sure she will just play her “poker face”. She saves the smiles and laughter for home. She has earned her first bruise. Yeah, Martha!
And I’m pretty sure we have another red head with Martha. How can you resist a face like that?
Happy 9 months, Martha Ann!
