9 months- Crawling and more teeth!

Addison is 9 months old today! My, where did time go?; especially since Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Addison has been a little fussy the last couple of days. I realized Saturday that her two top, front teeth are starting to break the skin, but today I noticed that the teeth next to those are coming in too. That makes 4 teeth coming in at one time. Wow! She’ll be all teeth by Christmas time. She is also learning to crawl. She can crawl a couple of times then falls to her belly. She is enjoying standing and learning to pull-up but not so much the falling down.
Today is also Veteran’s Day! Thank you to my two grandfathers, Glenn, Zeagler, and of course my wonderful hubby for serving our great nation. There are countless other men and women serving our nation today, some abroad and some at home. Some people I’m thinking of are the guys from A Co who fought along side Tracy in his two deployments. It just seems like your “everyday job” but we know it takes courage to leave that wire every time, not knowing if you’ll make it back to your bed. It’s your bravery and resolve which inspire the rest of us in our endeavors which are much less life threatening. It’s because of men like you that I can rest easy on my sofa watching my baby girl scoot across the floor after her toy. We all enjoy relatively peaceful lives because millions of service men have fought for freedom. Keep on fighting service members and civilians alike. Your congressman and senator can’t know your opinion if you don’t tell them. They can’t vote your way if they don’t know it! Let’s all fight for freedom.

I join you in thanking all our veterans, including Tracy, Glenn, and my many uncles who served. I also thank you and all the loved ones left at home who also sacrifice so that I sleep in peace. It is truly a great thing to live in a free country. I don't take that for granted.

Good luck with the teething. That can be a real challenge, especially when they start to bite everything around them.
