Stella: Nine Month Update

Nine months. She has officially been out of my belly just as long as she was in my belly. It’s crazy to think about. Aaron and I ask each other all the time…What the heck did we ever do before we had her? She seriously makes us so happy. What’s going on this month:

She now says dada. We first heard her saying it at 5 am over the monitor one morning.

She loves for us to help her walk!

Her favorite toy is a baby doll, she loves to give her kisses.

She loves when we put her in her crib for nap or bedtime. She smiles, squeals, and waves as we walk out. Who would of thought?

She got sick for the first time…bronchiolitis and croup.

If we walk away from her, she usually follows closely behind.

She has perfected whining when she wants something! But she is seriously the happiest baby ever.

She doesn’t like staying still for a diaper change or getting dressed

Her favorite thing is waving to everybody. Any where we go, she is constantly waving to strangers.

Stats: 19 lbs 8 oz 27 3/4 in

Hair: Blonde, it’s getting pretty long!

Diapers: size 3′s

Clothes: 9 month, 6-12 month clothes

Eating: Sweet girl LOVES to eat. She is always happy when she’s eating. She eats everything that we do now. No more purees. She still nurses 5-7 times a day. We have five teeth now! She’s got the whole pincer grasp thing down…no more putting her whole fist in her mouth to get a piece of food in there!

Sleeping: bedtime is still 7:30 and she sleeps 11-12 hours. She naps twice a day, anywhere from 1.5-3 hours each. I feel like she sleeps a lot for how old she is!
