Elin Kate: Nine Months

     I can't believe that Elin is already nine months old.  These precious months have just flown by, but all the same they have been wonderful.  This month, Elin got her first tooth, signed her first word, and said her first word.  She signed "more" for delicious sweet potato puffs.  It is super cute how she does it too. She turns her palms up, kinda waves at herself, and then brings her hands together while saying, "ma."  Her first word is undeniably "mama" and thus far it is an endearing "mama" and not a demanding one.  Ha! Don't feel too bad for Keith, Jake's second word was "dada" after "ball" of course.  He didn't call my name until he was like 18 months old!  So I'm obviously enjoying the sweet, "mama"(s) I get from "E."
     Elin is also standing for a few seconds without holding on to anything & following us through the house; especially Jake. She also LOVES her baths and near throws a fit to get in the tub when Jake is taking his bath or when it is time for her to get out of hers.

     Keith and I also traveled to Knoxville, TN this month as our family will be relocating there at the beginning of the new year.  Elin got to tag along as we looked for a home.  She did great & actually seemed to really enjoy having a little extra attention!  Let me just add, we are very excited for this adventure the Lord has placed before us; but we would appreciate lots of prayer as we did not find a house and this move is NO simple task.

We hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
