9 Months and 3 Years 9 Months

Von turned 9 months last weekend. He is finally crawling and loves to eat real food. He still has no teeth, but his hair grows like weeds. He just had his 4th haircut. At his 9 month appointment today he was 22 pounds and 2 ounces and 30 and 1/4 inches long. Which makes him in the 95 percentile for height and 75 percentile for weight.

Yes, she is wearing a swim cap (nerdy, I know, but she loves it) and yes, she is a great swimmer. I think she can hold her breath longer than I can. Seriously.

Is she ready for preschool or what?

Addi has officially started preschool. We went last Friday to meet her teacher and then again on Wednesday for parent orientation, where Addi also went to her class for an hour and a half.
After school on Wednesday, we were driving and Addi says, "Mom, school is good." I said, "so you want to go back on Friday?" Addi said, "No, now Mom."
We went again today, for her first "real" day, where I drop her off and leave until noon. She did great. Ran into her classroom excitedly and was happy for me to leave her in her new environment.
These were taken on Wednesday, she refuses to pose for me these days.
She had a chance to play on the playground a bit before class started today. She thinks that every kid is her friend and joins play effortlessly.
In her classroom.
With her teacher Miss Laurie.
