Madeline Grace: Forty Weeks

As unimpressed as you look in this picture, you are actually a thriving nine-month old!  We went to the doctor this week, and you are hovering around the 90th percentile in both height and weight, at 30 inches and 20 lbs 13 oz.  You are clearly not hurting for nourishment, and I love that this dress shows off your rolls!  That's my least favorite part of winter-all of your rolls get covered up!  Those little elbow creases kill me.  You still have no teeth, so you look like a little turtle when you eat.  Generally you are all about doing it yourself, but if we are eating something that looks delicious, you stick your little chin out like a turtle to take a gummy bite.  Your current favorite is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches-thankfully you are not allergic to peanut butter because you stole your sister's sandwich one day and started chomping down before I could grab you!  Sneaky girl.  You are as playful and mischievous than ever, and I am starting to get the feeling that you are going to keep us on our toes a bit more than your rule-following sister!  Especially when the two of you get together and get to egging each other on with your giggles.  Today we got a balloon at the grocery store, and you thought it was the best thing ever to grab the string and bounce the balloon off of my face, which obviously had Lilly cracking up.  It's so much fun to watch the bond between the two of you grow, but boy does it make me nervous!
