9 Months

Kathryn Grace is 9 months old! She is getting cuter by the minute and so incredibly active.  She is seriously all. over. the. place. I can barely keep up with her and she isn't even walking yet! Just look at her---you can tell she is a stinker!

She weighs 17.7 lbs and is 27 3/4 inches long.  Her body is in the 25th percentile but her head is in the 80th...what a brain! 

I can hardly keep up with all of the things she can do now.  Crawling, talking a lot ["mama", "dada", "baba"--the dog], pulling up and letting go so she can stand for a few seconds, feeding herself, many big girl things!

She notices e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.  Whether it's a teeny tiny crumb or a dustbunny in the corner where the vacuum didn't reach, she will find it.  And put it in her mouth.  Of course. Here she is examining something.

Favorite activity: standing up, climbing on us while we're laying on the floor, swimming, pulling books off the shelves
Teeth: no signs of any teeth so far [which I'm ok with since we're still nursing strong]
Favorite foods: yogurt, whatever we're eating. She thinks she should be able to drink out of our cups and pretty much loves everything.  I've been making more of her food and she seems to have liked all of my recipes so far.
Sleeping: I don't want to talk about it.  I'm tired.  That is all.

What I want to remember most about this month is how determined she is when she crawls after me, saying "mama" over and over again.  It's so sweet.  When she first started to crawl she'd forget that she could follow me so she would fuss a little.  I tell her to "Come on!" when I'm going somewhere so she can follow me.  She'll get to where I am and then tug on my leg so I will pay attention to her.  It's so sweet.


  1. Teeth don't have to mean the end of nursing! Kaylee is still nursing strong at almost 17 mos! Thankfully she is not a biter with her 12 teeth :-)

  2. I'm so glad to hear that! I guess I'm initimidated because we have had so much trouble with nursing. Kaylee is so big!
