9 MonthsPosted: August 18, 2011
9 Months… I just can’t believe it! My baby is NINE MONTHS OLD! This one is the hardest for me yet, probably because in three short months my baby isn’t going to be a baby anymore, she’s going to be a toddler!
This month has been all about Kylee perfecting what she does. She crawls faster, she stands up anywhere, she cruises around everything, she pulls everything out of cabinets. It’s just amazing how independent she is now. Just recently we started letting go and letting her stand on her own. One time I counted 8 seconds (and not cheating and counting quickly, these were slow counts). At first we would let go of her hands and she would just sit down. Now she is starting to get a little more adventurous and will let go on her own. She even is so brave that she is trying to take steps while not holding on. She doesn’t get far but I’m so impressed she is trying.
One new feat this month is she started saying mamma!!!! I was so excited when she started doing it! One thing I wasn’t too excited about was her waking up in the middle of the night. And now that she can stand up so easily, instead of putting herself back to sleep like she used to, she will stand up in her crib to keep herself from falling back to sleep. We keep thinking and hoping that it’s her teeth bothering her, but like all the other times we thought she might be getting teeth, nothing has popped out yet.
Kylee has discovered doors. She loves to open and close anything that will. Our big doors, kitchen cabinets, drawers, you name it! And oh is she getting HUGE!! We went to the doctor yesterday and she weighed in at 18lbs 7oz. She is 27 3/4 inches tall too. Her doctor cracks me up because every time we go she has to show me her growth chart because she is right on the 50th percentile for both height and weight.
Well here is what you’ve been waiting for, the pictures. This month was a little more difficult to get Kylee to cooperate now that she can get around freely. That’s part of the reason this blog is coming out so late. But here they are…
