Rilyn Ann: 9 Months

21 May

Holy cow! Nine months already!

I love this age. You have such a sweet and gentle manner, but I think it’s absolutely hilarious that you’ve started to show frustration with certain things. Like when you want to play with your sister’s toys and she’s not in the mood to share. And how you show your frustration is even funnier. (<—click the link for a video)

And yes. I said funnier. Your mom is cool like that.

At nine months:
-you weigh 18.5 pounds and are 27.5 inches. 50th%ile for both
-you wear size 3 diapers
-wearing 6-9 month clothes, 9 month, and 6-12 month clothes
-you love pointing at things and are becoming a master of the pincer grasp
-you love looking at yourself in the mirror
-bath time is the best
-you can drink out of a straw! When you want to. Most of the time it just becomes a chew toy, like the bottle and sippy cups. You’re killing me smalls.
-you love being outside
-you love carrots and squash. you’re getting better at eating your purees, but i’m starting to introduce more finger foods into your diet. We’ve done peas, carrots, avocado, peaches, and puffs. You only seem to like the puffs, but you do pick the others up and put them in your mouth, they just don’t stay there long.
-you’re still army crawling everywhere
-I thought you were getting better with your sleeping, but the past few nights we’ve been back to waking up 2-4 times.
-Your naps are so good, though! Morning nap is about an hour and a half, afternoon naps is 2-2.5 hours. Often times I wake you up from your afternoon nap.
-your new favorite game is dropping an object just to see mom/dad/sis pick it up. Repeat 38 times.
-you are saying “dada”
-no teeth yet
-you are pulling yourself up onto your knees, but not all the way to your feet yet.
-your diapers have cleared up and we have successfully added shellfish back into my diet with no reactions from you! Next up for this month: fish, tree nuts, and peanuts.
-everyone comments on how you always have your tongue sticking out. it’s your signature trait!
-stranger danger is in full effect now. you’re especially leery of men.
-I think you’re starting to understand what “no” means. We shall see.
-The tv remotes, car keys, and iPhones are your favorite toys. Hence why you’re starting to understand the meaning of “no” :)

look at that determination

We love you sweet little Rilyn Ann! Your giggle is the best, and we could just squeeze those cute baby roll thighs and kiss on those chubby cheeks for days!
