9 months and counting....

Smiley had her 9 month well baby check yesterday. (Yes, I know, she will be 10 months in a couple of days.)

She is a very healthy, happy, tall and lean little girl.

Check out her stats:
Height: 30 1/4" ~ 95%
Weight: 17 lbs 8oz ~ 10%
Head: 45.5 cm ~ 75%

And now, just to compare:

Sassy at 10 months:
Height: 28 1/2"
Weight: 16 lbs 12 oz
Head: 45 cm

Action at 9 months:
Height: 29" ~ 75%
Weight: 16 lbs 11 oz ~ 5%
Head: 43.5 cm ~ 10%
They are consistantly long and lean!

Back to Smiley.
She is crawling although usually it's army style. I would think it would be easier to crawl around on all 4's, but she does it her way. She is sleeping through the night ~ ok, has been since she was 5 weeks old basically but I am still appreciating it (Action still gets up most nights to use the bathroom or get a drink) She loves to eat and will eat about anything I give her. She is becoming more independent and like to eat finger foods. However, she isn't real keen on getting her fingers too messy. For example, yesterday for lunch ~ pasta with a tomato sauce and chicken puree ~ not loving the fact that I expected her to feed herself. She kept looking at her hands and was very happy when I took over with a fork! She has pulled herself to standing but doesn't quite know what to do after that. She is becoming quite a noise maker. Words I can make out are "dada", hi ~ more like "ha", and mama ~ "nana". She likes to play pat-a-cake and think she's hot stuff when she pulls a blanket over her head and plays peek-a-boo.

She has 1 bottom tooth all the way through and one beginning its way with many more on the verge.

(please excuse the very messy face, but can you see the teeth?)

And this baby loves to dance ~ most times she bops up and down, but last night she was shakin' it!

Anyway, Smiley is an amazing gift from God and she brings me joy everyday!
She is growing and changing so quickly that I need to remember to slow down and enjoy every moment!

Love you baby girl!
