Madelyn: 9 Months



Happy 9 month birthday!

Cannot believe how big and long you are getting.  You've had many changes this month.

-Weighing 19lbs and 27.5" tall

-You are in size 3 diapers, 6-9 month and some 9 month clothes.

-You still scoot around a lot and can crawl backwards, but not forward yet.  You're getting there though.  I know you're ready to chase the doggies around.

-You're still a chatter box!  Love to talk to anyone and anything. 

-You had your first cold last week-a stuffy nose and cough.  The cough is still lingering a bit, but we can tell you're feeling better.

-You are eating 6 oz. four times a day.  We're guessing the doctor will want to lower that even more after your checkup.  You love to eat and try everything we put in front of you.  Your new favorite this month is turkey.  You'll try some more yummy favorites at the end of this week (on Christmas)-definitely some cheesy potatoes and ham!

-You sleep between 11-12 hours at night.  Going to bed at about 8pm and waking up between 7am-8am in the morning.

-You make noises when you eat (like your Uncle G used to!).

-Your naps haven't been as good as usual since there are houses going up all around us.  It's been pretty loud around here.  We're trying to drop your third (evening) nap, but recently you've needed it since your afternoon nap has been pretty short.  The workers have normally gone home by the time your third nap rolls around.

-You celebrated your first Thanksgiving!  This is when you had turkey for the first time.  Along with some green bean casserole and dressing.  You cleaned your plate!

-Big happening this month....your first tooth has come through!  It's on the bottom.  You look so cute.  The tooth next to it should pop up any day now.

-You've tried drinking out of a sippy cup.  Just water though.  We won't do juice for a couple years.  You'll drink a little bit out of the cup, but then try to chew it.  You'll get it eventually...especially when your bottle goes away!
