8 & 9 months

Just when I am about to type Missy's 8 month post, she is already 9 months old! She is growing so fast! 

She has decided that sitting is finally okay, but is still alittle unsure of herself unless she is up against something or someone.

She would rather just stand all day. She loves to walk around while holding my hands. I am thinking she might walk before she crawls. Crawling is not even on Autumn's radar. If I try to put her up on her hands and knees she shoots her legs out straight and lays on her belly. 

She finally got her first two teeth. I am loving her smile with her little bottom teeth showing.  She still doesn't like to eat solid food. She gags on every baby food and on anything that is on a spoon. The only foods she will eat are apples, watermelon, crackers and the Gerber rice puffs, and she has to feed them to herself.  

She is still tiny, but growing steady. She was 13lbs 13oz and 26 inches long at her 9 month check up. We are working with an Occupational therapist to help with her eating and crawling aversion.  

Missy sleeps about 8-9 hours straight at night. She goes to be around 7-7:30 pm, wakes up to eat around 3-3:30 am then goes back to sleep till 7 am. She takes two naps a day, usually from 10-11 and then one from 2-4. The best way to put her to sleep is to play some music and sing to her.

She loves dogs and gives Oli and my dads dog Buddha hugs all the time. 

She sat in the cart for the first time this month!

She absolutely loves bath time. She laughs and splashes the whole time. I get soaked every night. She loves books and thinks it's fun to scratch the pages as we read. 

She loves to look at the window and look at herself in the mirror. She could do that for hours!

 Miss tiny is such a joy to be around and I am so thankful I am her Mother!
