nine months

  • you weigh 16 lbs and 8 oz.
  • you are 27.5 inches long.
  • you are in a size 2 diaper, and i think after we finish this box we will move to 3's.

  • you wear mostly 6-9 month clothes.  some clothes are sized 6-12 month, and those are a little big on you.  some just say 9 month.
  • you wear a size 2 shoe.
  • you don't have any teeth yet!  i got really excited a few days ago because i thought that i could feel a bump, but now i'm not so sure.
  • you are a speed crawler!  you can get from point a to point b in a blink!
  • you are starting to recognize words.  some that i know you understand are dada, mama, juice, eat, milk, punkie, and go.
  • you are still mostly eating stage 2 baby foods.  since you don't have any teeth, we've been taking it slow with introducing "chunky" things.
  • you know to look down to find something if you drop it.
  • you are pulling up really good now, and taking small steps behind your shopping cart.  you still act like you're not quite sure what to do!
  • you love to make loud screaming noises.  we try to make the same sound back and you, and you just laugh and laugh at us.
  • you still want to be rocked to sleep every night.  i will admit, i get soooo tired of it sometimes, and wish that you would go to sleep on your own in your crib, but i know years from now, i will give anything for you to want me to rock you to sleep.  i try to enjoy every day and night!
  • you sleep from about 9pm until 3am.  i nurse you and you go right back to sleep until around 7am.
  • you eat breakfast at 9, lunch at noon, snack at 3pm, and dinner at 6pm.  in between those times, you nurse, and again before bed time.
  • you make a growling sound, and i'm pretty sure that you learned it from sydney.
  • you are such a girly girl with your earrings and bows.  i adore it!
  • you have decided that you don't like green beans anymore.  everything else you will usually eat without a problem.  
  • you love juice, and are doing so well drinking out of your sippy cups!  you've had apple, pear, and white grape juice.
  • you went on your first long road trip.  we went to georgia for the weekend, and you did absolutely fantastic.  i couldn't have asked for you to have been a better traveler.
we absolutely adore you!
