Nine Months

9 Months
Getting so big.

That face.

Her serious face.

Oh, and that smile. Even behind the paci.

Weight:Weight: 22lbs
Height: 27.5 in (I may or may not have measured her with a piece of paper since we are living in chaos and I don’t have a ruler handy. And then as I’m writing this, I see the toolbox with the tape measure in it. I think I like my way better).

Sleep: She’s a great sleeper. Over the last couple of weeks, she’s started screaming at her naps, but since we just moved and her life’s kind of crazy, it’s understandable. At night, though, she’s a champ. She sleeps all night long, and sometimes even sleeps in until 7:30am.

Size/Diaper: She’s in size 3 diapers and size 9-month clothes. She also wears 6-9-months size and can squeeze into some 6-month clothes. I bought her some 12-month clothes recently – so crazy. 

Diet: She’s drinking formula and eating lots different foods. She’s gotten pretty good about feeding herself. She really enjoys eating puffs and her teething biscuits.

Baby Gear Love: I really like the play yard. It’s nice to be able to put her somewhere safe where she can play, and I can get something done.

Milestones/Firsts: She has two teeth! The first one broke through right before her 8-month birthday, and the second one just came through last week. They are the 2 front bottom teeth. It’s adorable when she smiles, and you can see them.
She’s standing with assistance like a pro. She can pull herself up on just about anything, and stand while barely hanging on. I have a feeling she’ll be standing on her own and even walking soon.

Likes/Dislikes: She likes standing up and she loves getting into everything. She’s constantly moving. She loves moving/dancing to music. Her favorite right now is the Gilmore Girl’s theme song. She also loves giving kisses.

She’s not a fan of her play yard. She’ll play in it for a while, but she just hates being confined. She’s so curious and wants to move.

Things I don’t want to forget: The way you can see her two little teeth when she smiles. How curious she is and wants to get into everything. How she picked up and spilled the dog’s full water bowl and put a piece of his food in her mouth (I got it out ASAP, in case you were wondering). The way she whips her head around to look at the TV whenever the Gilmore Girl’s theme song comes on and starts dancing and smiling. The way she gives kisses, which are usually more like tongue stamps.
