Growing and Changing at Lightspeed!

Since Christmas, it seems that Alice is growing and changing so fast, it is hard to keep up with it all!  We are all having lots of fun with her, each and every day.  We have had a busy few weeks - here are some of Alice's highlights:

We attended Lisa's cousin Jen's wedding shower.  Here is Alice, playing with a balloon:

Scott bought a cable that connects the computer to the TV, so here we are skyping with Auntie Vicky and Miranda - lifesize!

While Alice is still nursing, she now eats three "real" meals a day as well.  She loves fruit!  Here is a photo of her, still learning to love her vegetables!

She just moved into her size 6-9 and 9 month clothes.  Here she is showing off her new 9 month pajamas from Auntie Bethany and Uncle CJ.  Such a fashionable baby!:

Now that Alice is soooo close to crawling, we are trying to give her some time to hang out in her play area with bare knees and feet so that her clothing won't hinder her efforts.  It's too bad that it is not warmer out right now, or this amount of time would not be so limited!  Look at that big baby!:

Alice has the crawling form mastered.  She just needs to get the forward motion going, and then she will be off!  Here she is, trying her best!:

Daddy found a really neat item at the store recently for Alice.  It is a pacifier with a mesh "sucker" so that we can put any sort of food in the pacifier and Alice can gnaw on it and get the flavor without any risk of choking.  Here are Alice and Daddy, sharing an apple:

Additionally, she has started to stand herself up, if she is playing in her crib or when she is playing in the front room, against the ottoman.  We haven't gotten a photo or video of that, but it is sure to follow soon!

Here is a link to the rest of the photos from the past couple of weeks.  Enjoy!
