Caroline, you are 9 months old! How did that happen? 9 months seems like such a big baby...it's sooo close to 1 year old!
But I'm not sad. Even though there's been rough days (or perhaps I should say nights since I'm talking baby here), I feel like I've made a very conscious effort to put my task oriented tendencies aside and really cherish moments with you. And each new phase is funnier and more exciting than the last so I do enjoy each passing month and seeing more of your little self emerge!
A few highlights are that you've started talking a bit. You say "mama" like it's going out of style, which I admit I L-O-V-E! You've also said "hi" a few times. But so far that's it. You do lots and lots of baby jabber though. I have this feeling you're going to be quite the talker.
9 Month Stats:
Weigh: 17 pounds (25th percentile)
Height: 27 inches (25th percentile)
Clothing: You still wear some 6 month clothes but are starting to move into the 9 month clothes with sleepers and when you're wearing a cloth diaper ('cause they're so bulky they make for a bigger baby bum)
Diapers: You usually wear cloth, but when you're in disposables you're a size 3.
Favorite Foods: Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin bread, black beans, grilled cheese, and homemade pizza!
Words: Lots of "mama" and lots and lots of giggling and laughing...you crack yourself up all day long. You babble something then burst into a laugh just as if you're laughing at your own jokes. And the other day you gave your stuffed monkey quite the talking too- it sounded like he was in trouble and you were letting him have it.
