Earlier today, Nova was having some milk and bananas. She likes us to sing everything and she dances most every time. She also dances to any music she likes. I caught 9 month old Nova on video (BELOW) dancing to the random milk song I was singing to her as she enjoyed her milk and bananas. She says "milk" near the end of the video. At 9 months old, she is a very smart baby, always dancing and saying too many words to keep up with. She likes copying just about everything everyone says if she can.

Nova says Happy Thanksgiving... OK not really... but it's still cute!
Nova's getting so big! She got to play with her Nuby stacking cups today and she absolutely loves them! She played with them in her Graco SimpleSwitch Convertible High Chair. The high chair is so comfy and the cups were so fun that she enjoyed them for quite a bit. The two videos below, as well as the pictures above depict how delighted and interested she was.

Nova really enjoy laughing with Nathan and has pretty much since day one. Enjoy these fun pictures and videos of brother and sister laughing away.
Yesterday, we decided to buy some early Halloween decorations before the good stuff was gone. Nova apparently thought the skull ghoul was hilarious and wouldn't stop laughing at him. Thanks to big sister Aja for grabbing my phone and getting it on film. This is the first time Nova has laughed this hugely. She's done some smaller laughs here and there, but nothing like this.
Leave it to one of my kids to have a first laugh at something Halloween-related. It's my favorite holiday and around here we celebrate Halloween as whole-heartedly as some celebrate Christmas. Looks like she is fitting right in, as well as developing quite the personality. We did not expect that response from Nova when Aja took out the skull ghoul.

We discovered recently that Nova is probably teething and got a video of her being silly with her dress. Here's another fun video of almost 3 month old teething Nova. This time, she's talking about and chewing on her teething blanket.

Today Nova decided she wanted to be silly and "eat" her dress lots and lots. We think she might be teething because she's been putting everything she can reach into her mouth and biting it. The videos and pics show a little bit of her silliness with using her dress as a teether today.
From using it in her support seat, to our laps, to the car seat and stroller, she's been insistent upon chewing up her dress all day. Well, more like gumming it since she has no teeth haha.
She's got plenty of teething toys and two teething blankets, but her dress seems to be her favorite of the day.
