Blakely's 9 Month Update

Height: 28 1/4 inches - 73%
Weight: 16 lbs 13 ounces - 25%
Head Circumference: 17 3/4 inches- 82%
Vision: You see good as far as I know. Dr. Mary has never had any concerns at least.
Movement: Big month for this category. You went from immobile to crawling...atleast a little bit. You can go about 4-5 crawls before giving up. Sometimes your legs slide out from under you and you end up on your belly. Thats the worst because you can't figure out how to sit up again once laying down. You can go from sitting position to crawling and vice versa. You are going to be flying around here in no time.
Eating Habits/New Foods: Still doing 3 ounces of milk every 3 hours throughout the day. We have made sure you get 3 meals a day though because you are hungry. You are starting to do more bite size foods. New foods we have tried this month are: cheese, yogurt, pears from a fruit cup, cheerios, deli meat, pork, ground beef, strawberries. You are still doing lots of pureed food. I made a second batch of food and it only lasted about 3 weeks so we are definitely in need of a cooking session.
Sleeping Patterns: Nothing new in the sleep department which is nothing to complain about, because you are a great sleeper majority of the time. You wake between 7:15 and 7:30, take a nap around 10,  take a 2nd nap around 2 or 3 pm, and go to sleep around 8 pm.
Sounds/Words: You still say Mama and Dada, but no actual other words. You are starting to imitate sounds that Delainey or I make. I am working on hi and bye bye as we speak.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You did your first 2 signs! They were milk and more
-Your can crawl
-You celebrated your first Christmas and did great in Christmas eve service. You definitely wanted to sing with the choir
-You met Santa for the first time and did good sitting on his lap.
-You went to your first Mickey's Xmas Party and stayed awake until we left the park at 11:45 and saw the Osbourne lights at Hollywood Studios.
-You did your first hayride through Luminaria in Avondale
Places you went/Adventures: December was packed with activities. You did the Julington Creek boat parade, a live nativity at Christ's Church fleming, met Santa at Delainey's school, went to Orlando for Mickey's Christmas party and to Hollywood Studios for the Osbourne Christmas lights, went to story time, played a lot with your cousins Walker & Waylon who were in town, went on a hayride for Luminaria, celebrated Christmas eve at church, had Christmas morning at our house then dinner at Gammoes.
Clothes: You are in 9-12 month clothes. They are a little big, but they definitely are doable. Most leggings and jeans are 12 months. We are in 9 month sleepers now. Still a size 3 diaper, but definitely ready for size 4. I am finishing that box of 3s though by golly! lol
Sister updates: You are obsessed with your sister. She blows on your belly or sucks on your fingers and makes you laugh hysterically. You are starting to imitate her by yelling if she yells or making sounds similar to what she does. She is such a good babysitter and is always willing to help whenever I need something.
