Simone 9.5

She's nearly ten months old. scary.

Lucky for us, she's not crawling yet, so we can still run circles around her. Before long, she'll be flip the tables on us, and then we won't know what to do.

Today was a beautiful spring day, so we decided to do some yardwork. We conned a friend's kid into mowing the lawn (woo-hoo), and did the weeding and pruning ourselves. Simone even tried helping out - she got her first taste of grass.

mmmm.... grass....

mmmm.... phone....

Dad, stop taking pictures and help me up!

She's obviously sitting up and grabbing things. She's actually gotten to the point where not everything immediately goes into her mouth. She looked at the grass for quite a while before tasting it.

Simone's laughing lots more, and still gurlges on command. Just this week she learned how to make the clucking sound by ... um, well combining your tongue and the roof of your mouth.

She's playing the piano, and drumming any two things she has in her hands together. The favorite toys seem to have moved away from the mint tin and wooden ring to a quarter cup measuring cup.

Each day is an adventure.
