9 Months Old!

9 Months old??  I have a 9 month old???  Officially 3 months until I have a 1 year old?!  This just doesn't make sense to me!  I guess someday it will feel real...I'll keep that in mind.

Yes, I have a 9 month old and she is growing so fast!  Annaliese's 9 month check up is July 19th, so I'm not able to report her official weight and height stats just yet, but that post is sure to happen.  I do know that she has grown a lot since her last visit to the doctor.  She is in 12 month clothes and even some 18 month clothes.  She eats 3 baby food meals a day, which includes a fruit for breakfast- usually with some oatmeal, a veggie for lunch- and sometimes some lunch meat in small bites, and a meat for dinner.  She also enjoys her puff snacks in between along with some water from a sippy cup.  Although she is still very new to the sippy cup, I'm pretty sure she does get some of it in her mouth when she drinks.  Other than that, it's on her shirt.

Annaliese has also made a lot of progress on the floor.  She definitely has the crawling position down but has yet to master the art of removing one arm or leg at a time.  She either takes both arms down or both legs down and still tries to crawl with her face.  Haha!

BUT she has done very well with the baby walker.  At first she was just able to push herself backwards, but as of yesterday she is able to also push herself forward!

She also has so much more personality now!

She will shake her head "no" or stick her tongue out when she doesn't like something...

 She laughs at the cat constantly...

She uses her teddy bear blanket to fall asleep...

She often sticks a toy in her mouth and rests her hands on her legs (one of the cutest and funniest things ever)...

She can stand up on her own if she is leaning against something...

She is turning into quite the little person.  Every evening I think to myself, this will be the last time that she is this small, because every day she grows and grows.  She "talks" a lot more now and has figured out some new sounds to make with her throat and voice.  Some sound like she struggling to breathe...which is NOT FUN for Mommy and Daddy, but she's ok...just testing out what she can do...and Mommy and Daddy's reflexes, I guess.  She is such a happy baby 95% of the time and such a joy to be around.  Guess it's time to start thinking about her 1st birthday times! :)

Your Friendly Mama,

    1. Thanks, Kyra! It's been a working progress, but with some research AND meeting fellow bloggers here, I've almost gotten it to where I want it. :) I can't wait to read a more "inside scoop" about the Tanners :)
