9 Months


Once again the 6th rolls around and we cannot believe you are another month older! You are such a treasure and a joy. You had your 9 month check-up this morning and got a wonderful report. You are healthy and growing and are above the 95th percentile from head to toe. Here are your statistics compared to your last check-up at 6 months:

Length: 28.5 inches
Weight: 19 lbs 13 oz
Head: 45.5 cm

Length: 30.5 inches
Weight: 22 lbs 15 oz (looks like mommy & daddy were a little off!)
Head: 48 cm

Your 1st Christmas was last month and you loved it. You loved all the wrapping paper and tissue and surprisingly loved getting some new toys (we were not sure if you would be that interested). We look forward to being able to explain more to you about Jesus and His birth next year. You are a VERY active girl. Here are some things that are going on with you:

- You where a size 4 diaper and size 12-18 month clothes.

- You are still nursing well and love eating fruits, veggies and crackers.

- You are not sleeping well right now. We are trying to figure out what we can do to help you sleep better.
- You clap your hands all the time and wave sometimes when people come and go.

- You can go from your tummy to the sitting position (it is so weird to find you sitting up in your crib when I come to get you from your nap)

- You "dance" when you hear music.

- Your stranger anxiety phase is in full force.

- You are really good at picking up even really small things with your fingers (we say you have little pinchers).

- You say "mama" all the time.

- You love bath time.

- You play really well by yourself.

- You currently have 2 (lower) teeth and are getting 4 on top as I type!

- You LOVE other children.

- You LOVE to scream. It is a happy scream, but it is LOUD.

- You are very curious. You like to get into anything that is in your reach.

- You like to share when you are having snacks. You will feed yourself a puff and then feed me one... it is very cute.

- You are a good eater (nothing new there!). We are excited to start introducing you to more foods.

- You are very vocal and are always talking.

You are getting so big and are acting more and more grown up all the time. We just cannot believe in 3 short months you will turn 1 year... crazy!

We love you SO much,

Mama and Dada
