9 Months Old


You are nine months old today! You wear 6-9 months clothing and will probably move onto 12 months very soon.  You are now in a size "3" diaper and still wearing size 2 shoes.  You weigh 17 pounds. You are drinking 3, 8 ounce bottles a day.  You are eating baby food three times a day and love it!  Your favorite is butternut squash and apple.  You are still taking two naps and now sleep 11 hours straight from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. (knock on wood...).  You have 4 teeth on top and now have 4 on the bottom.  You FINALLY crawled TODAY!  You have been inch-worming around for awhile now and can pretty much get where you want to go, but are now trying to get good at crawling.  You've still been babbling a lot and mostly saying "mama" yay!  You also say "a-gah" and that's when I know you are fixing to do something sneaky!  You have definitely been asserting your independence lately.  You now HATE to have your diaper changed or clothes changed.  I mean HATE!  Also, when we take anything away from you, you totally throw the BIGGEST fit imaginable!  You are so so so curious!  You LOVE playing with the door-stopper!  That's definitely your thing!  You also LOVE putting necklaces in your mouth.  I just adore your little personality!  You are so cute and sweet!  I just can't put into words how much I love you!
