My 9 Month Old



My 9 month old baby! I can't believe it! She is the sweetest little baby and is full of smiles and energy. She definitely keeps me very busy now! This month she has started so many new things!!


We went to the doctor and Amelia weighs 18 lb 10 ounces (50-75%) 28" (75%). The doctor said she has great hand-eye coordination and she may be an early walker (WHAT?) We have been very blessed that Amelia has been pretty healthy so far.


Amelia is just taking bottles now. She usually takes 6-8 ounces 3-4 times a day. She loves food! She still loves bananas, cheerios, pancakes, and spaghetti. She gets a banana every day and demolishes it. She still will eat baby food but I don't think we can get it to her fast enough. And baby girl loves making messes. She takes at least a morning nap and an afternoon nap and sometimes an evening nap. She also sleeps through the night every night. Praise Jesus!! We just lay Amelia down (after lots of kisses), give her her blanket and pacie, turn on her sound machine and leave. She usually cries for a couple of minutes then settles down. The fun thing is we have a video monitor and it's funny to watch what she does when we thought she was sleeping. She normally goes to bed around 7:30 and gets up between 7 to 8.



She also is becoming way more independent. And also starting to have a preference in things. She has her favorite toys, her favorite blanket. And now she hates changing clothes again! But likes being naked.



Another kind of sad thing is that she's stopped sucking her thumb! I loved her little thumb but she likes her pacie. She also loves her Daddy. Joe went to Thailand for 10 days. The first time she crawled she crawled to the iphone to video chat with daddy!




She is also quite the little babbler. She has said some things that sound like dada but not when he's around so does it count? Everyday we work on saying mama!


We are now a crawling machine! This is my view most of my days! And baby girl loves getting into everything!! We need to get more baby gates to help corral this little explorer.  She pulls things off of shelves, loves the remotes and pulls up onto everything she can manage. She will take a few steps with me helping but not coordinated yet.

Alison, I couldn't find your email address to respond to your comment on my blog. I did get the email deal for Stork Stack, but I already get a couple other subscription boxes each month and I just can't justify doing another right now. They sure are fun, though! P.S. Your daughter is so adorable!
