Linden-Estelle-nine-months-old-6
Linden Estelle turned nine months old today. I can’t believe how fast time is flying. To ensure I remember all these special moments I will be taking a “birthday” picture every month for her first 24 months as well as charting her developments.

Summary of Linden’s development this past month:

  • She will point and say “Mama”, “Dada”, “Ivey”, and “Hee Haw” (which is her word for “play”)
  • Will often sit “funny” as demostrated in the above picture.
  • Will surf around the house while holding onto furniture
  • Will rather furniture surf than crawl
  • Is still breastfeeding during the evenings and weekends
  • Still has a total of four teeth

In the last month Linden has eaten all kinds of food. And loves to nosh on large pieces of artisan bread.
