9 months

I know I say this every month, but really? My sweet, newborn baby that I swear I just brought home from the hospital is 9 months old? In three months she will be one? Hard to fathom.

We are really enjoying this stage in Caroline's life. Her personality is shining through, she's a happy baby, loves to play and wants to be with someone constantly - she's not a loner:) She's on the move - she can army crawl with the best of them and when she adds her mad rolling skills, the girl can GO! Life on the move!

She had her 9 month check up today and is doing well! Here are her stats:

18.12 lbs - 50-75th percentile

27 inches long -25-50th percentile

18 inches (head) - 90th percentile

Happy 9 months, sweet child! Here are some fun things you're up to these days:
  • you are sleeping better this month. January seems to have been a big development leap month for you - as well as teething. You're back to sleeping from 7 p.m. - 6:00 a.m./7:00 a.m. You still have an early morning a couple of times a week, but we'll take it!
  • you are starting to eat finger foods - puffs and some soft fruits and veggies. You are eating baby food 3 times a day and a snack of yogurt in the late afternoon. You still nurse 5 times a day. You are a great eater!
  • you are on the move! The days of sitting you on the play mat and knowing you'll be right there when we come back in the room are over - you can army crawl and roll to any place you desire.
  • you can say Dada and Mama - you say Mama a LOT - and Mama LOVES it:) You say Dada over and over and over when you are mad - ha!
  • you are super close to being able to wave bye-bye. We're also working on blowing kisses.
  • you think playing peep-pie is so funny!
  • you are starting to pull up on things, but you can't pull up to your feet, your knees are typically where you stop.
  • you chuckle all the time - you do three little quick chuckles anytime you're concentrating on getting an object or crawling. It's super cute!
  • you're napping two times a day - and sometimes you still take a quick catnap after school on the way home.

Sweet child, you certainly complete our joy! We love you to the moon and back! And just a few parting shots of how hard it is to get the wee one to sit still these days:

"I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete."
