Emma: 9 months

Date: June 3

Stats: Her 9 month check up is in a couple weeks. We weighed her a few weeks ago and she was 15 lbs, but I think she's gained weight since then. She's been eating a lot more food!

Sleep: It's become very consistent. 7:30-7:30 at night (dream feed at 10pm, wakes up to feed at 5am). Two daytime naps that are at least 1.5 hrs each. We're pretty much on a 2-3-4 schedule (nap after 2 hrs of being up, another nap after 3 hrs and bedtime after 4 hrs of being up). The consistency and predictability have been great!

Feeding: Breastmilk and solids. We are getting adventurous with her food and have introduced eggs, salmon and ground beef. She loves all of them! She loves all her veggies and most fruits. The only things she hasn't liked are peaches and mangoes. Soon we will start giving her brown rice and quinoa. We try to give her all organic, but some things are hard to find.

Clothing size: 6-12 months/9 months depending on the brand. She has a few 12 month things that fit too.

Likes: pulling up to stand next to everything, eggs & salmon(loves them!), swimming, anything that is not a toy, magazines, books, songs, anything new

Dislikes: getting her diaper changed (hates lying down or sitting still!), strangers, standing/crawling in grass

Teeth: She has her first tooth on the bottom! Looks like the other bottom tooth is coming in too. She bit once before the tooth was really in and it hurt, but she hasn't done it since!

Biggest changes: She only wants to stand up, all the time! Pulls up to the sofa and is almost walking while hanging on. She's getting better at standing one handed and can stand on her own for a couple seconds. She says mama, dada and hi but we can't tell if she's just babbling or actually saying those words.

Emma absolutely loves swimming and the water! We took her on a mini trip to Tucson with my parents and she went swimming for the first time. Our trip was a little preview of what our San Diego trip will be, she did great!
