9 Months Old

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

Length: 27 inches
Weight: 15 pounds 9 ounces... she is now in the 10th percentile for weight and going up!  She's growing perfectly along her curve and the doc was happy!  Yay!
Clothing Size: 6-9 month... I haven't gotten out anything bigger yet.
Fave Toy: My sister had one of those stand up play tables and she LOVED it.  A friend has one that I am going to borrow!  Gia loves to stand up these days.
Fave Outfit: By far, my fave outfit this month is the ladybug shirt I got her at Tuesday Morning.  It is a 3-6 month size, so I knew she'd only be able to wear it a few times, but I didnt care... its so cute!
New Moves: She is crawling lightning fast now, and standing/pulling up on everything.  She is even standing on her own for a few seconds at a time.  Just this week she has begun to move between pieces of furniture... walking is on the horizon.
Teething: Still just the two bottom teeth... I think the other top ones have been trying to come in for over a month now.
Eating: She's backed off of her love for baby foods but she's trying new finger foods like carrots, green beans and white beans. 
Sleeping: Still a challenge.  Though her doctor said that its not unheard of for breastfed babies to need to eat during the night through one year.  I guess I can make it three more months...I think I can I think I can I think I can.  Just reminding myself of all the money we're saving by not buying formula.  And really, sleep?  What's sleep?  Who needs it?
Talking: She is babbling like crazy!  It almost always sounds like "mamamamamamam mamamamamamamama"... I love it!  She gets more and more vocal every day.

We had Gia's 9 month appointment yesterday and I could not believe how fast time has gone by as I was making her one year appointment.  Crazy, I tell you!  We also had a follow-up appointment at the children's hospital with the eye doctor.  Praise God, all is well!  Her pupils are still a little different in size some times, but its far less noticable now.  The doctor gave her a clean bill of health, and sees no need for further follow up!  Yay!
