9 Months!

We have our 9 month well baby check next week, so check back for updated stats
Weight: 21 lbs. 15 oz (92nd percentile)
Height: 30.75" (Above the 100th percentile)
In the advanced areas for all her developmental milestones

That's right, I have a smart little girl :)

-Claire started crawling right after she turned 8 months. We are busy now! If she sees something she really wants, she goes for it, and gets there quick! It surprises me sometimes how fast she is.

-She is pulling herself up on everything lately. It definitely makes me a nervous mama, worrying about all the potential head bumps that come with this new, wobbly, skill!

-Claire usually naps twice a day. The first nap around 9:30 for about an hour to an hour and a half, and the second nap 1:30 or 2:00, and then bedtime between 7 and 7:30.

-Claire discovered a new sound this month as well. Her face had me cracking up; too funny!

-We've mastered waving this month. It's now Claire's favorite thing to do. She waves to us, people in the store, and sometimes just to her toys. It's too adorable! If you tell her 'say hi' or 'say bye' she knows to wave. Here she is mid-wave:

- Claire took her first trip to feed the ducks this month. The second time she was way more interested!

-Clare's been eating about 28-30 oz in a 24 hour period, and eats solids 2-3 times a day, with oatmeal before bed and snacks of puffs and other finger foods throughout the day. She loves vegetables (thank goodness)! Butternut squash, green beans, and mixed veggies are her favorites. The favorite finger foods right now seem to be puffs, black beans, blueberries, cheese, and banana, but surprisingly she'll eat almost anything. Except avocado....crazy baby!

-Each month brings new challenges, as Claire's attitude and personality get bigger. We are still working on throwing fits when something gets taken away that she's not supposed to have. We're also working on sharing. Obviously I know she's still a little young, but we're trying to start young, and tell her she can't just take things out of people's hands.

Miss Claire, you are such a joy and your daddy and I have so much fun watching you discover the world around you. Everyday that passes brings something new and exciting with you. We feel so blessed to have you in our lives!
