It's hard to believe Little Miss Mei Li is really 9 months old already.

* She loves being chased and tickled.
* She hates having her diaper changed (because she wants to crawl away and get chased and tickled)
* She loves the plants in the living room.
* She hates it when her brother gets in her space or makes her feel unstable.
* She is 22 pounds.
* She loves broccoli and most of her vegetables.
* She's not overly excited about many fruits.
* She desperately wants free reign to explore the great outdoors.
* She loves taking a bath and has discovered the joys of splashing.
* She's into shoes - for their flavor, not their fashion (notice her smudged nose).

* She's recently gotten a kick out of letting go and standing alone, and she is ever so close to taking some steps.
* She has gone from being a wonderful sleeper to waking up twice a night demanding to be fed (we're working on that one).
* She's waving, shrieking, belly laughing, but not trying to talk yet.
* She loves her daddy and tries all means of grunting and straining to get picked up by him.
* She's a speed crawler and likes to chase down the broom (or the dirt being swept by the broom).
* She's been wearing 9-mo clothing for a couple of months already.
* She has gray eyes with brown in the center and they don't appear to be changing anymore.
* She is a fairly contented little girl, but gives me moments of wondering how strong-willed she might end up being.

We sure love this little girl.
