E is 9 Months Old Today!

Today, my dear sweet baby is nine months old.  I can hardly believe that 9 months has flown by already.  She’s no longer an infant, she’s a baby well on her way to being a toddler.

What's up mama?

At 9 months, E is:

17lb’s 9oz (smaller end of average- but a huge accomplishment considering how much weight she lost due to illness)

27.5″ long (smaller end of average- she’s always been a peanut)

– Wearing 6-9 month clothes and Sleepers (for the most part- for some reason she wears 12 months in Children’s Place because their clothes are super short)

– Wearing size 3 diapers (disposable) and size Medium Cloth Diapers at night

– Taking a 6oz bottle every 2-3 hours

Enjoying Tollerating Puree’s with Pears and Sweet Potatoes being her favorite

– Starting on table foods (Cheerios’, cooked rice, cooked macaroni, etc)

– Stating all kinds of sounds (mama, dada, baba, nono, mimi (towards our dog Miley) to name a few)

– Riding in a convertible car seat (has for about 3 months now)

– Crawling up a storm (seriously girl can move)

– Pulling herself up on everything

– “Monkeying on the Wall” (holding on to anything and everything as she walks around)

– Waiving, Clapping, and playing Peek-a-Boo

– Playing/Entertaining herself when we set her down to play with her toys (sometimes she gets mad when Mommy/Daddy try to play with her)

E Loves:

– Grammy & Pop-Pop (seriously mommy and daddy are chopped liver compared to them!)

– Tangled & Christmas with the Kranks

– Cuddling with mommy and daddy

– Bath Time

– Miley

– Her teachers and friends at school

– Playing with/Looking at herself in the mirror

– Riding in her Ergo

E Dislikes:

– The car seat (we had hoped moving to a convertible would solve this)

– Being held down (changing her diaper/getting dressed)

– The Emergency Room (unfortunately she’s already been there 3 times)

– Being in her stroller to long (thank goodness she loves her Ergo)

9 Months going on 16

Baby girl- your mama and daddy love you very much (Miley too)!  You are the absolute best part of our day and while it breaks my heart to watch you grow up so fast, I fall more in love with you every day as you continue to define yourself and your little personality.
