Look who's standing up!
Playing with Daddy in the park
Our little girl turned 9 months old yesterday! To celebrate, we took her to the Long Beach Aquarium - she loves to look at all the fish. The sea lions were also entertaining and playful! Throughout the day, Kyra gave us her "Marlon Brando" face, as I've been calling it. For some reason she keeps sticking her chin out, making this silly little face. I think she's discovering more areas of her mouth and how her teeth feel against these different parts of her mouth. It looks hilarious. I'll have to get a picture of it. She's also figured out how to pull herself up to a stand, and she's definitely practicing her new skill! I think, pretty soon, it'll be time to put the legs on her music table and, soon after, show her how to use her pre-walker push toys.
The pictures above were taken last week at the park, during an unseasonable heat wave in Southern California. Kyra definitely enjoyed the warm weather, but I've been enjoying putting some of her cute little jackets and long sleeve shirts on her now that it's cooled down a bit. The photo below shows just one of the cute jacket outfits we found discounted at Ross a few months ago. I've been waiting a while for it to finally cool down enough to pull the jackets, corduroy pants, jeans, and long sleeve shirts out of the closet! I'm sure we'll get a few more chilly days this winter, so we'll have jackets at the ready!
Last weekend, Kyra got to play with her BFF, Natasha, and the girls had a great time together. They'll see each other again tomorrow for a Birthday party, so hopefully we'll get some pictures of the girls together.
Enjoy your weekend!
