9 Months!!

Saturday, July 11, 2015

Our Dearest Stella,
Sweet baby girl, this has most definitely been the hardest month for me! I feel like 9 months sounds so old. I mean, gah, when Wyatt was this old I was already pregnant with you. I just want to keep you little forever. You are getting so big and growing too fast! You're working on becoming mobile and I am not ready for that, at all.
What you did this month:
  • You are weighing about 15 pounds and roughly 24 inches long.
  • You are wearing 9M and 6-12M clothes. You wear size 6/9 M and 9M in pajamas.
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers.
  • You nurse about every 3-4 hours now. And eat solids at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • You love eating food and really prefer to feed yourself. You're still eating some purees, yogurt, and pieces of food that we're eating. Your favorites are any (and all) carbs, yogurt, cracker, and chicken nuggets.
  • You take a morning nap around 10 for an hour to hour and a half. Then you take an afternoon nap around 1:30 for about 2 hours.
  • You go to bed around 7:30 at night and you've been waking up around 11:30, 3:30, and then you're up for the day around 8.
  • You started sleeping in your "big girl" room this month!! You're doing ok and thankfully have not woken your brother up.
  • You're rolling over now and can even go from lying to sitting, sometimes.
  • You move yourself around on your booty, using your feet to scoot.  
  • You love when mommy sings and rocks you to sleep. And I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
  • You and Wyatt are starting to interact more and he's taken more of an interest in you. It's really sweet how he likes to play with you and even holds you some. Although most of the time he's trying to push your head down so you'll lie down.
  • You love animals! Your face lights up and you're so happy when they come around.
  • You've also become quite a jabber box. We're pretty sure you're saying kitty, which comes out "ki" when you see the cats.
  • You're quite the little swimmer. You really enjoy the water and actually like being in the floatie; Wyatt always hated it.
  • You visited the beach for the first time this month and celebrated your first 4th of July.
