growing like a weed

Adley is 9.5 months old. I took her to the doctor last week. She only had one shot and a prick on her toe. I thought for sure this would be the time she really fussed about it. Nope, she's tough, took it like a champ. Must not have been the stinging kind. She weighed 17 lbs. and is 27 inches long.
So she has been crawling for a while now and just learned a new trick in the past couple days. Ryan made her do a little squat "workout," and the next day she started pulling up on a couple things. And then yesterday morning, Ryan came in to this...

Actually she wasn't just standing there, she was reaching her very hardest for the nice ipod on her night stand.. Ryan said when she saw him she pulled her arm back real quick like she knew she wasn't supposed to be doing it. I think he just startled her.

Look at that sweet confused face. 

If she looks like she is about to cry or stick that bottom lip out, she is. She wants to be in her daddy's arms so bad and she just doesn't understand why he left her in her crib to go get the camera! So cute!

All day today she has been pulling up everywhere. I can't leave her anywhere, not even a minute or two before she is pulling herself up on something scary. I even set her at my feet in the kitchen (because I needed to keep my eye on her while I was getting dinner ready) and she got herself standing by the cabinet. I don't know how, there is nothing to grab there. I'm going to have to see if she will try it again tomorrow.

She obviously is changing so fast and learning new things. I want to pull her out and make her start all over again.. means I'm ready for another one right???.. Hah!
