Ollie’s ninth month has been a month of movement.
This month has flown by quickly! Ollie is crawling like a champ, and we are either chasing her or she is chasing us, everywhere. This month also brought us two fairly sharp bottom teeth (and lots of drool). Ollie has become quite the chatterbox and we love carrying on silly conversations with her.
Ollie is an observant, tenacious, and very busy 9 month old. We are extremely blessed parents.
You can read about Ollie’s eighth month here.
