My goodness!

There must be something about the 9-month mark that your kids just start learning like crazy. Like in a week's time Lucy has learned to feed herself (with fingers), clap her hands, and last night - crawl! We had to catch it on video tape so we can say she did it because she usually resorts to some kind of butt-scooting instead, but there was actual forward-moving crawling going on last night and lots of it. It could have been the combo of fleece pajamas on carpeted floors that helped her 'stick' better. She's so cute with the hand-clapping though, this morning I asked if she was all done with breakfast and she clapped her hands. So sign language is in her near future if she's getting hand movements down. I could be mistaken, but I think she signed "mama" to me yesterday but it looked more like the sign for moose/donkey instead (Beth will know what I mean).

Oh yeah Lucy!!! You're getting to be such a big girl. Wait until you learn how to say, "I don't want to." That will come when you hit about 2 years of age. hehehe Tell your Mommy and Daddy to cherish every single moment and every single little thing you do because it happens so fast. See you in church on Sunday!!

Maybe "Moose/Donkey" is her nickname for you! ;-)

YEA LUCY! Pretty cool if your first sign is Mama! HaHa Daddy. :) Hope's first sign was "more" on the flight home from China (the final LA to MSP leg). It is so incredible when the communication develops past having to understand different cries.

Have a great night - dream of where you'll crawl next, Lucy. :)
