9 Months

Happy 9 months Ellington!!! I can't believe you are so old! :) You are the light of our lives and we love you so much.

What are you up to at 9 months old?
  • Weight & Height (will fill in after our dr.'s appt. next week!)
  • You wear size 9 month clothes, 12 month footie pjs, and size 3 diapers.
  • You usually have two 6 ounce bottles during the day and an 8 ounce bottle before bed.
  • You have three baby food meals a day.
  • You have tried a few teeny tiny bites of table food: baked potato, french fries, bread, and Daddy gave you a few bites of Key Lime pie when we were in Florida!
  • You aren't too sure about food other than your baby food. You usually spit out Gerber Puffs when we try to get you to have a little snack.
  • You take two naps a day and they usually last 1-1 1/2 hours. Thank goodness you haven't been doing 30 minute naps lately!
  • You usually go to bed anywhere between 7:45 and 8:30 and sleep 10-11 hours. I would love to say you always sleep through the night, but you don't. Most night you do, but not always (like last night and the night before!).
  • You love people watching!
  • You still love fruit and tolerate you vegetables (but NOT green vegetables!).
  • You babble, squeal, and giggle all the time. You say three "words", but don't use them in the proper context yet. :) You say: da da, ma ma, and uh oh.
  • You have gone on your first vacation and have dipped your feet into the ocean. :)
  • You have 2 teeth.
  • You are usually happy as long as someone is playing with you. You don't really like playing on your own.
  • You love playing with random objects more than your toys: empty water bottles, plastic containers, empty kleenex box, etc.
  • You have started giving love. You lean in with your mouth wide open and kind of halfway close your eyes. It's the sweetest thing EVER!
