9 Month Update

Height: 29 3/4 in - 97%
Weight: 18 lb 12 oz - 50%
Head Circumference: 17 3/4 in - 75%
Movement: Wild woman crawler! You move so fast that in a blink of an eye you are in another room. Since you are now mobile, you don't care for your jump jump or your walker anymore. They are too restricting for you these days.
Eating Habits/New Foods: We have tried ground beef, ground sausage, banana/quinoa, chicken florentine, green beans, broccoli  and tons of new fruits...watermelon, tomatoes, pineapple, mango. As far as snacks go we have added goldfish to the mix of cheerios and puffs. You are eating a lot of bite size pieces instead of purees. Most fruits and veggies are bite-sized. You are drinking 4 bottles a day...3 4 oz bottles and then a 8 oz bottle for bed.
Sleeping Patterns: We are back on track with sleeping. We start the bedtime routine around 8 so you are asleep by 9. You sleep till 8 am most days. If I can keep you from taking your morning nap, you usually take a nice long mid-day nap for an hour or two.
Sounds/Words: No new words, but you are imitating everything we do! I was coughing all last month and now you do it to be is so cute. You also started sticking your tongue out and making spitting noises.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You wave really well now
-You walk behind your wooden walker really well
-You got 2 more teeth on top. On both sides of the big teeth, so that makes 6 teeth total!
-You can climb stairs really well. You haven't mastered how to go down on your belly but we are working on it.
-You also understand the word no and obey fairly well. You usually try it one more time before you listen :) stubborn like her momma!
-You LOVE playing with all of Mommy's bracelets
New Friends I've made: No new friends, or at least that I know of. You were promoted to the crawlers room at the nursery during Church. I shed a small tear because you are growing up too fast but I think you like it much more! You met a lot of Aunts and Uncles and Cousins for the first time at Auntie Joyce's birthday party.
Places you went/Adventures: You went to the zoo for the first time and really liked it! You got to pet a goat :) You also went to Orlando for Pop's convention and then to Auntie Joyce's 90th birthday party. Everyone loved you and thought you were so cute! You also went to the beach and crawled around in the sand
Clothes: You are in 12 month sleepers. These are your current sizes: Gymboree-6-12, Target- 12 months (The shirts are short), Carter-9 , Old Navy/Gap- 6-12
You are in a size 3 diaper.
