Sofie celebrated 11 months by suddenly learning how to crawl up the stairs! Yikes -this girl can get everywhere. It's a good thing Asa and Ida are so vigilant about doors being closed, and small toys staying away from her! She also got to meet all the Wilkins fam. Uncle Bray became a favorite - the 12 hour car ride probably helped with that.
This pretty much sums up their relationship at this point.
And here's her crazy face hand clasp - her method for signing "please."
Sofie hit 10 months last month but I was remiss in posting about it! She has 6 teeth, eats anything (another kid with Mike's metabolism and love of food), she tries hard to crawl after the big kids (even when she's the 'Sofie Monster'), plays duplos with Ida and remains as chipper as ever.
The loud and crazy side has been steadily emerging as well (just look at that picture!)
She's stood by herself a couple times - but no steps yet.
Well our cutie patootie just leapt into 9 months old! She went from being a pretty expert (but slow army crawler) to full speed crawling, getting into everything, and pulling up on all the furniture.
She's now 28in tall (75%), 17.6 lbs (30%), and a head diameter of 17.75in (75%). So she's starting to skinny out.
We are all double checking to make sure the basement and bathroom doors are closed, that playmobil toys are nowhere near her, and making sure she's not attempting to eat rocks out of the plant.
(Poor Asa- he might develop an ulcer over how bold and daring she is - either that or it's concern that his tiny lightsaber will be swallowed. Recently a googly eye from the craft supplies Ida was playing with made it's appearance a few days later. This has left all of us on high alert.)
She's mastered "Dada" and "Mama." And if you ask for kisses, she'll basically lick your face. The kids of course love this trick and will sit in front of her saying "kisses" over and over until she gets their nose.
Our Sofie girl is 8 months already! She's growing up quicker than allowed!
She's at a grand total of 4 teeth - two bottom and two side ones on top which is allowing her to be quite the expert at chewing on her special crackers and eating food.
Her army crawl is surprisingly quick and we have to watch out (so do the kids) since she'll sneak up behind and start stealing toys. She says "dada" and the kids both claim that she's said "Ida" and "Asa." I wouldn't put it past her.
