9 months

In the blink of an eye, my infant is now a TODDLER.  9 months and on the move.  She's got a mind of her own, this one!  What a funny, smart, determined little girl she is!
Mom, you're want me to lay there on that blanket for you? Do you know me?
How about I just come over here and play with my doll, will that do?

I like this doll, I think I will take her with me.
Ok, Ok, I will lay here just for a minute while I laugh at your funny faces....

Wait a MINUTE!  What is this here on my shirt?!?

It tastes good...

Real good.

I believe I need to remove it immediately.

Got it.  Uh, oh.....Mommy saw me!

Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!  Must have it back!!!!!!!!

Just a day in the life. :)

LIKES: Putting little balls in her dinosaur toy, feeding herself "Puffs," peek-a-boo, remote controls, opening up cabinets, her furry "brothers" Buddy and Max (they are constant laughs), standing and cruising all day long, books books books!, splashing in the bath, clapping, taking a few steps alone, and smiling with her TWO adorable new little teeth!

DISLIKES: diaper changes (staying still is for woosies!), being put down in her crib to sleep (sleeping is for losers!), being strapped into her high chair (are you seeing a trend here? :) ), riding in the car (praise Jesus for Yo Gabba Gabba videos on the iPad, man oh man.), having a "toy" taken away from her (what, I can't eat this piece of paper or throw your cell phone on the ground?)

Naps:  2 naps a day (around 9 and 1)

Night time:  6:30 ish bedtime, 5:30 ish wake up.  We had  a few rough nights there the week before she turned 9 months...Once the doctor told us to let her cry it out, we did....we had one REALLY sad night, but she has slept straight through for the past 3 nights.  Whew!  Worth it.

Eating:  She eats solids 3 times a day, nurses morning and night, and takes a bottle 2 times.  We started supplementing a little formula since I couldn't seem to keep up....not sure that's going over so well.  Hmm....

Well, I hear little shouts coming from someone's for a snuggle.



  1. Sounds like life has changed SO much for you guys this year. She's adorable.

  2. YAY FOR SLEEPING through the night for 3 nights so far! WOO ABBY!

  3. Thanks, Brooke! She is so fun.

  4. Em, feel like a new woman! Shoulda done this months ago! Haha!
