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.
We hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Little "E" turned 8 months last week! What a big girl she is! This month was full of adventure for Elin. In ten minutes flat she can stand at the dishwasher & empty the silverware, get into a magazine basket (literally) in the living room, & make it to the utility room to be found chewing on one of Loa's collars! Yikes, she's fast! We took a family vacation to Sea World & she got to meet a third set of great grandparents, Gigi & Big Papa! She loves to yell, I mean sing at the top of her lungs, dance to any music, & she always has a quick smile (especially for daddy and brother). Elin, I hope you always have an easy, quick smile. We love you baby girl!
