9 Months Old!

Loving on Daddy

You love your books!

Eating Blueberries

What a Big Girl!

Our little Emily Jean is now a big 9 month old! Every day Todd and I comment on how we slowly see our baby changing into a toddler. I know she is still a few months away from that, but she is very tall, and her hair and 6 teeth make her appear to be much older!

So what are you doing now Emily??

Here are your 9 month stats: 19 lbs. 12 oz & 28 3/4 inches long

Eating: You quickly dropped the baby food and zoomed straight for the solids. Your Dr. has approved all the foods we have given you. :) You enjoy Crackers, cheerios, bananas, green beans, carrots, pears, ham, chicken, cheese and toast. We will begin giving you little bits of what we eat and see how you like some of that!! You still take about 4-5 bottles a day plus your solid meals.

Play Time: You spend most of your days crawling everywhere and pulling yourself up onto EVERYTHING! You have recently conquered climbing the stairs ( with Mommy following right behind), playing with your kittys, and reading books! You can't get enough of your books and turn the pages for Mommy and Daddy now. Some of your favorite toys are your pull horse, Leap Frog Table & your Baby Einstein Videos. But nothing can beat playtime with Daddy where you use him as a jungle gym and climb on him over and over again!

Talking: You repeat 'mama' 'dada' 'baba' & 'nana' . You also enjoy sticking your tongue out and making silly noises while spitting everywhere, it is messy but pretty cute! You also respond to any and everything by saying a quiet 'ha'. It is pretty cute and you always talk to mommy from your car seat while we run our errands.

Sleeping: You are a wonderful sleeper. Your bedtime is anywhere between 8 & 8:30 and you usually sleep until 9 the next morning, which is pure bliss for mommy and daddy. You enjoy your bath time routine with Daddy, and fall asleep all by yourself in your crib. We love you for that!

Emily will be getting her 9 month pictures done next week, we are very excited for that!! We are also looking forward to Easter, and several upcoming Birthday Parties and Baby Showers!!!
