Oh, and we got to play on Wrigley Field at Big League Dreams in Phoenix. Four of our five games were there.
The big news though is Marissa's development this last month. She's gone from not being able to crawl two days before her 9 month birthday, to pulling herself up at will by her 10 month birthday. She stands, sometimes unaided, for as long as she wants, which is usually dependent on how long it takes her to get into something she shouldn't be getting into.
She's also making various animal noises when you ask her "what does a ........say?". She can do lion, dog, snake (really!) and turtle. Yeah, that last one is a bit odd, but there's a story behind it. LL's parents have a picture of a turtle eating leafs which they took down in the Galapagos. So when they were showing her the picture they made a chewing motion with their mouths and Marissa does the same. It's adorable.
Marissa was a pretty good traveler, despite two 4 a.m. wake up calls.
She loves to play on the table that Joisey Ken gave her for Christmas!
And here is Marissa with her cousin Aaron.
