Tirzah is 9 months old (yesterday)!!

Yesterday Patrick came up to me while helping Tirzah walk--she was holding onto his sleeve only to steady herself!  She has taken a couple steps on her own, but is not really ready to venture off without holding on to something.  She turns her feet in and walks on the sides of them, so she doesn't quite have the balance/coordination down.

Tirzah, at 9 months you
~want to get into everything
~try to copy the things that everyone else is doing
~bump your head a lot as you learn to balance on two feet (or two knees)
~will not fall asleep by yourself
~like to be held over my left shoulder (or Micah's, Eden's, or Patrick's) and patted on the back
~like to sleep near Mommy all night long, even if you're not nursing
~go to bed at night around 9 pm and get up around 7 am
~take one or two naps in a day, sometimes 2 hours long

~love to play in the pantry (see the mess you made out of my onions!)

~love balls
~pull up on everything, even things that are not stable and cause you to fall
~are learning how to go DOWN and up the stairs
~think downstairs is the best place in the world to play
