well. Juniper enjoyed playing with the table paper and I repeatedly
prevented her from eating the little pieces she ripped apart.
9 months and 3 weeks old
19.4 lbs, 25.5 inches long
She had a vaccine injection and only cried for a few seconds, then was
okay. She is getting super mobile, though still not technically
crawling. I saw her pull herself up from sitting to standing today,
which is new.

Her naps have decreased from 3 or 4 per day to about 2 per day. She has started showing us the sign for "milk" (American Sign Language). Although she did the milk sign on Monday when I waved good-bye to her, so at first we thought that was her wave. She opened and closed her hand toward herself near her mouth. Since then she seems to do that when she wants milk, so we are still figuring out how to interpret her signing and also still teaching her the distinctions. She is also still learning the different words and meanings. It is fun! We have been so excited about this new way to communicate. (We have a DVD and book by Garcia to give us basic tips for teaching baby to sign.) This week was the first time that she has clearly been signing back to us. Thanks to Aunt Squishy who has been a great teacher!
