This is you at 9 months old:
You are eating all sorts of "real" food, now and trying lots of things off of Mommy and Daddy's plates.
You love noodles.
You love these:
Mommy loves these, too, because they dissolve easily and teach you how to chew and swallow without choking.
You still eat a fruit combo in the morning (with Oatmeal) and a vegetable/protein combo at night (with Rice cereal).
You usually have a yogurt as a snack after you wake up from your nap.
You are now eating about 6 oz of milk for daytime feedings and before bed.
You usually take at least one good nap a day.
You are so happy when we come to get you in the morning or after nap time.
Your smile makes our hearts burst!!
You are still going to bed by about 9pm and sleeping until about 8am...on average. Sometimes you have an off night, but who doesn't.
You cried when we got your ears pierced, but not for long. You don't play with them or pull on them at all.
You are still so vocal and are talking and screaming all the time.
You still put everything in your mouth.
You have really started showing us your personality and react to us taking things away from you or saying No.
You love to try and get our keys and the TV remotes.
You are still drooling, but I feel not as much. It may be just because I am so used to it. Who knows.
You still go through about 3-4 bibs a day.
You are crawling!!
You are always moving and don't sit still anymore.
You are getting into crazy places now that you can move and crawl.
You are also pulling yourself up on things.
You have started to really walk along things and from thing to thing.
You still love your jumperoo, but lately you prefer being on the outside of it, instead of the inside.
You don't like being restricted and not able to move. Go figure.
You love to try and walk with your musical walker.
You still have deep, gray eyes.
Your hair is still growing and Mommy had to give you another bang trim.
You are growing right on track, but are still our peanut.
You are wearing mostly 6-9 month, but some 12 month clothing and pajamas.
You love your puppies and think they are so hilarious!
Your giggle is the best thing in this entire world.
You are wearing size three diapers.
You have your two bottom middle teeth and now you have your two top middle teeth.
You love to make funny faces.
You still don't care for your nuk at all. I can't even remember the last time you had it.
You love when we hold your hands and you stand up.
You immediately start walking when we do this.
You still LOVE bath time and like to kick your feet and splash. You are still in the infant tub, but we will probably try it without soon. Mommy still gets nervous, so we will see.
You are so alert and people comment on it frequently.
You love cuddle time in the mornings with Daddy while watching cartoons.
You are just the best thing that has ever happened to us and we love you more and more everyday.
We love you so much!
