Date: July 3
Stats: At her 9 month check up (which was at 9.5 months) she was 17 lbs…right on the 25th percentile for both height and weight.
Sleep: I recently stopped doing the dream feed before I go to bed and she sleeps right through it until about 5am! So now she is going 8-9 hours, doing a big feed, then back to sleep until 7:30/8am. We got a little off with sleep and she has been needing to nurse to sleep since the roseola/vacation/throwing up (yes, it was a fun couple of weeks).
Feeding: Breastmilk and solids. We had an incident of throwing up from something she ate. It was horrible! We've been easing solids back in, but she seems to be doing well. She is really a great eater and tries everything we give her. We are so grateful for that! She had a phase of not wanting to nurse much, but now she wants to do it more than ever, loves her milkies. Still breastfeeding and no end in sight! :)
Clothing size: 6-12 months/9 months depending on the brand. She has a few 12 month things that fit too. (She's been in these same sizes for a while now!)
Likes: the ABC song (she's obsessed with it!), pointing to buttons, her sand toys and bucket, riding in the ring sling
Dislikes: anyone trying to hold her hand, headbands, getting dressed/diaper changed
Teeth: One tooth on the bottom and the upper tooth is coming in now. She grinds and clinks them together!
Biggest changes: She is constantly rolling r's and making new sounds. She says dada, mama, hi, bye and waves. She's gotten much more giggly with us when we do silly things. She now sings along with us, especially to the ABC song. She has become extremely clingy to mama and cries when she sees me leave the room. At first it was cute, now it just makes things difficult. She also has more hair now, so I can finally use hair bows! Still not walking, but is standing on her own for longer periods of time.
Emma had her first vacation in San Diego this month (will post pics soon!), was sick for the first time (once with roseola, then the throwing up from food), met one of her 2nd cousins for the first time and went to the art museum for the first time. It was a really fun month!
