While we were enjoying Hume Lake, Luke passed the 9 month marker. It was really amazing to see all he learned in the 2 weeks we were there. He learned to pull himself up on anything and stand without assistance (wish I could do squats like that!). His vocabulary tripled with the addition of "dada," and "mo" (more) to his very cute "Ha" while waving his hand. He'll also give you 5, if you ask.
What a blessing and delight!
