Nine Months Old
My Appearance: I had my 9 month well check the day after my 9 month birthday. I weighed in at 19 pounds and am now 26.5 inches long. I am in 9 month clothes now and size 3 diapers. My hair is getting longer and is looking very blonde, although I still have a bald spot on the back of my head. My eyes are bright blue and something that everyone seems to notice right off. I still don’t have any teeth yet but it could be any day my Mom tells me. Since I have grown so much I don’t have as big of a belly but all my cute rolls are still around. I am a good eater so that helps me keep those around.
Milestones: I am defiantly a mobile baby now; I can roll, scoot, and turn and get pretty much where ever I want to go. This also means that I get stuck a lot and I also end up hitting my head on things more often. I have started moving my legs like I am crawling but I can’t get my belly of the floor to move. I am so interested in food and this past month I have been adding a lot of fruit onto the list of foods I can eat, I really like peaches. I am a mover when I sleep now and I always wiggle out of my blankets.
Daily Routine: This month I went back to 3 naps most of the time. This pushes my bedtime back to around 8 or later. I like this because then I get Mom and Dad alone for a little while after Blaiden goes to bed. During the day I get to play a lot, eat a lot, and talk a lot. I know now that if I want someone or something I can yell or cry and that seems to get the attention of someone. I like to go for rides in the stroller and also like to go outside.
Special Events: This past month I have got to do a few fun things each weekend. I got to see hot air balloons and watch them light up in the night. I helped Mom celebrate her birthday, and she told me it was her best birthday yet. I got to experience my first Football Hall of Fame weekend. I went to my first movie, Rio 2. I got my first high fever and had to go to the doctor for it. I also got to have a few play dates with some kids closer to my own age.
