9 Months

Finley Marie...you are 9 months old!
This has been such a fun month. Your dad and I were just saying that you are at such a fun age right now and we love it!
What new with you this month?? Besides the fact that you are still our bald baby??

Weight and height will be determined on Wednesday when we go for your well-check
Still size 3 diaper but definitely need to be in a size 4, blowouts are coming out the back which is a good indicator :)
Still wearing 12 month clothes, you are pretty true to size
Sleep is still pretty much the same, give or take a few rough nights here and there. Always wake up once for your paci and will typically wake around 5am because you are hungry but will go back to sleep till 7:00ish. Bedtime is still between 7:30 and 8:00pm.
You take 2 naps a day, typically 10am and 2pm...every once in awhile we'll take 3 naps but that doesn't happen too often anymore.
You are now army crawling. Just in the last few days you have been on the move! I thought you were our little lazy baby because you were content just sitting and watching everyone else but now you want in on the action and go to whatever it is you want.

We moved your mattress down because I saw you pull yourself up on the ottoman the other day, but you quickly fell over. We don't want to take any chances so we decided to move the mattress down in case you learned how to stand in the middle of the night :)
You have been doing much better with eating regular foods. You still aren't a fan of fruits and veggies that I puree but you like to eat them in chunks. You like rice cereal though, so I'm not sure why you like that but not baby food.
Some of your favorites foods are: carrots, zucchini, avocado, peas, pears, apples, puffs, graham crackers, mum mum's, and we even tried some rice pasta this past week. Again, anything you can feed yourself, you love!
I also started feeding you 3 meals a day now and a couple snacks here and there.
Your favorite singer right now is Lady Gaga, because every time I ask you who your favorite singer is you say "gaga" :) ha! In general, you are talking a whole lot more and definitely have a lot to say.
You have 1.5 teeth. Your second bottom tooth is just coming in and luckily that second tooth wasn't as hard as that first one!
You have been a lot better with strangers. You aren't as attached to mom, which makes it a lot easier! Whenever anyone talks to you, you just get a big smile on your face.

I had to try your swimsuit on yesterday to make sure it fits and you looked so adorable!! I think we are ready for Hawaii!!! Obviously without the leg warmers though!
I still want to find another swimsuit with a long sleeve rash guard but I'm sure this suit will still get some cute usage.
And again, here is Cole and Finley, both 9 months. I still can't get over how big he was, but it's so fun to see the similarities too.
Happy 9 months Finley, we love you to pieces and can't believe you are getting that much closer to 1 year!
