Our sweet youngest is 9 months old! She has brought us so much joy in the past 9 months...we are so incredibly blessed. We cannot believe how much she has grown. And thinking back to the early days of her life when she cried almost all. the. time., I simply cannot believe what a happy baby she is!
At 9 months, Harper is...26.5 inches long
Weighs 19 lbs 3 oz
*Clap her hands purposefully
*Scoot on her bottom all around the room
*Push herself backwards
*Reach for objects with purpose
*say da da da, da deeee, da deee, heeeeee, yay (not with meaning), hiiiii, lots of vowel sounds and other fun sounds. She isn't saying ma ma and I think it's on purpose. Ha! I try and try to get her to say ma ma and she just responds with a smile and "da da". Grr! Haha. :o)
*feed herself puffs, though she'll usually hang onto them for a while before eating them
*almost crawl! Any day!
*any kind of animal...and if she gets to pet it, even better!
*about 10-12 ounces of breastmilk throughout the day and then nurses 3-4 times a day
*oatmeal, prunes, sweet potatoes, apples, oranges, carrots, peas, green beans, pears
...and she gums it all. She still doesn't have any teethies!
She is growing like a little weed! We cannot wait to see how she continues to grow!
Happy 9 months, Harper! We love you SO much!
