Sariah Update

I realize that I haven't posted in a while, so here is an update on Sariah!

* 9 months old!
* Standing and balancing with no hands for about 3 seconds
* 8 teeth
* Still not eating "big people" food - she's just not interested! She'll eat in her own time.
* Continues to be as cute and fun as ever. She loves life, loves her dad, and loves the dog!

She has started playing with stuffed animals and realizing that a face means something. She has these really soft stuffed animals that Grandma Wilkes gave her and she is attached to them. She sleeps with one every night, and totally cuddles with it. When she's awake, she kisses it, talks to it, plays with its tale, and drags it around the house with her. Here she is, sleeping with the monkey:

Here's a cute picture of her sleeping with her bum in the air (just like her dad used to do!):

She LOVES Baby Einstein. I don't show them all, and the TV isn't a babysitter. However, once in a while, there will be an evening where she is cranky and just needs to settle down. I'll put in the animals video and she'll eat her bottle and relax. There's this cute dog puppet that she LOVES. She squeals, claps her hands, and will crawl as close to the TV as she can when she sees it. Here's a cute video of her watching the puppy. You can hear it sniffing in the background!

What's better than a dog playing with a laser pointer? A baby playing with a laser pointer!

One of her latest tricks - fart noises on the ottoman! My brothers would be so proud.

Baby Einstein is the greatest! :) Reagan still loves watching them, especially her sign language DVDs. Thank goodness for those, since that's how she communicated with us up until last summer. Sariah is adorable.
