9 Month Checkup

Everything looks great!
Our little 9 month old is 22.2 1/2 lbs. She's 29 1/2 inches long. That is 92nd percentile for weight and 97th for height.
It's just madness to try to get her to sit still for these monthly pictures, but I often think the ones where she moves the most end up being the funniest.

Macie, what are you doing this month?

You have started taking baby steps! I'm not ready for a full-fledged walker, but you're on your way. Usually if I have something you want (like the remote control that you're not allowed to have) you'll take more steps. right now your record is 6 steps.

You stand up on everything, and you've had a few spills, but nothing serious. I think that comes with learning to walk.

You don't say any words yet, but you babble a bunch. Lots of dadaddadads and gagagagagas. No mamamamamams yet, but I'm still hoping.

Before bedtime you go crazy. You're laughing at everything you think mommy and daddy are hysterical! You just laugh and laugh. It makes it hard for us to put you down to bed because that's probably my favorite time of day.

You currently eat about 20-25 oz of forumula a day and a serving of cereal, stage 2 fruit, veggie and meat. The dr. says since you have such a 'healthy' weight to maintain you will gradually eat more and drink less milk. We'll probably start some table food this month, but I'm not in a big hurry because my friends largely say that once table food starts baby food is out the window and I'm not excited about that. Baby food is expensive but easy!

You're daddy and I love you more than you can imagine. We are so proud to be your parents and are looking forward to a lifetime together! We give praise to God each day that He brought you into our lives in His perfect timing.

Love that dress! Glad to hear her appointment went well. And taking steps already!? She may be an early walker!
