Kate is 9 Months Old!!!

   Kate Alaina, You are 9 months old!!!!!  This has been an exciting month with huge growth for you!

    You have took off with baby food now.  You have tried Momma's carrots, broccoli, green beans, corn, and mashed potatoes.  You've also had some store bought baby food: pears, peaches, apples, cereal, carrots, sweet potatoes, and lots and lots of prunes. 

     You are now nursing just three times a day.  You've been trying to drink a little juice out of a sippy cup but you haven't quite figured that out yet. 

We can finally see some teeth coming through.  You have two on the top. 

 Blurry picture but this is your classic Kate face with lots of crazy sniffing and snorting!
   You are scooting all over the house.  And you are as close to crawling as you can get without actually crawling.  You will get on all fours and rock.  You have no trouble going from your belly to sitting position.  You are a pro at sitting up now!  

     You are trying to pull up now but you haven't been able to yet. 

     You are sleeping through the night now.  Woohoo!  Mom finally took a stand and when you woke up midnight was going to let you cry for 15 minutes before she comforted you.  You didn't even make it through the full 15 before you were back asleep.  You were probably ready for this MONTHS ago but mom was babying you!

  Most days you take a morning and afternoon nap. You wake up around 7AM and go to bed at 7PM. 

    You are wearing size 2 shoes (although they are getting snug), you are wearing a few 12 month clothes but mostly 18 months now.  You are still in a size 3 diaper. 

    You've had some problems with constipation this month. (You will love me one day for putting that on the world wide web).  Momma has been feeding you prunes at least once a day and trying a little bit of apple juice.  I think we have it figured out to give you some relief. 

Happy nine months, sweet girl.  We love you!
