Avery-9 Months

Our girl turned 9 months on the 26th. It is so hard to believe that she has been with us as long as she was in my belly.

Age 9 Months

Weight 20.2 pounds (75th percentile)

Length 29 inches (92nd percentile) maybe she has a chance at being tall?

Clothing size 6-12 month, 9 month sizes. She can wear 12 months but they are a little big. Size 3 diaper

Hair  Lots and it is so pretty!

Teeth 2 on the bottom. Drooling and chewing on stuff like crazy. She has to be getting more soon.

Sleeping She wakes up once or twice a night still. She has improved as we have started sleep training. She does pretty well for naps during the day and takes 2 to 3. She is waking up at 6 am or before and Mommy is tired. She is so different from Lily who slept through the night from pretty early on.

Eating She eats 6 ounce bottles every 4 hours or so. She loves to eat what we are. Even with just two little teeth she can eat like the best of them. She scarfs down whatever we put in front of her. She is not a fan of pureed baby food. 

Movement Avery is on the go all the time! She can crawl like a champ and pull up on just about anything. She has stood unassisted a few times and I think she could take off and try to walk any day now.

Milestones slept through the night once this month. I really wish she would start doing it consistently. 

Favorite toys/activities Anything that she can put in her mouth and chew on. She likes the activity table. Loves being outside and taking walks. Loves bath time.

Dislikes Sleeping, having her diaper or clothes changed. 

Words & sounds Lots of funny noises. She shrieks and makes funny sounds and purses her lips out. Can make the m sound and d sound but hasn't said anything intentional yet.

What we love Everything about her. She is such a sweet girl and doesn't fuss unless she is tired or hungry.

What we don’t love Her sleeping pattern

What we’re looking forward to next month More awesome milestones. Clapping, standing on her own, walking?
