9 months!

My sweet little girl turned 9 months old yesterday! She’s officially been outside of me longer than inside!


She had her 9 month appointment the other day and here are her stats:

Weight: 14 lb 13 oz.—2% for weight

Length: 25.5”—4% for length

Still a shrinky dink, but at least she’s consistent.

She has sprouted two little teeth on the bottom, which caused her ZERO pain or discomfort, which meant ZERO pain and discomfort for me. And so far, I haven’t been bitten. Yet.


Some of her favorites include:

  • Playing peek-a-boo
  • Drawstrings of any kind. If there is one on your person, she will find it. And then chew it.
  • Food of any kind. Pizza, waffles, squash, pasta, yogurt, fruit, Frosty’s…. You name it, she’ll eat it. And she’ll feed herself now! It happened overnight. This past Monday night she couldn’t get the food in her mouth. Tuesday morning, every piece went straight into her trap. It’s really cute to watch.
  • Pulling off her socks
  • Smiling and laughing
  • Her new favorite game is leaning forward into you until your foreheads touch. Then she looks you in the eye until she starts laughing. It’s so funny.

She also says “mama” all the time which of course I love. She doesn’t know what she’s saying (maybe?) but I don’t care. All I know is she’s not saying “dada” yet. :) Her hair is getting SO long in the back, but don’t worry, we won’t be sporting any mullets just yet. She rolled over for me yesterday for the first time, and then did it twice. But no more since then. She still doesn’t crawl, which is ok with me.

She sleeps 12 hours at night, then gets up to eat then goes right back down for another couple hours. She’s a great napper, but is still a champ even if she goes all day without one. (Unlike her mother.)

She’s super nosy (like her mother) and is always craning her neck to see what’s around the corner or just out of her line of vision.


Her little personality is really starting to show, and we just love it. We have had so much fun with her lately and we know it’s only going to get better.

We love you, Bugaboo!

K-you are SO SPOILED to have such a fabulous little girl. I love watching her change and grow. She seems like such and easy going girl, just like her mama.

Wow another amazing pumpkin shot!! Love it.
She is so little but so adorable! I am used to having monster sized kids... they are all Eric when it comes to size.
