Nine Months

Size Diapers: Size Four. 

Size Clothes: She wears 6-12 and 12-18 months in leggings. The length fits perfectly but the waist is a little big.

Eyes: Still blue with a light hazel/yellowish around her pupil. I'm so happy we have a blue-eyed baby. Both my grandpas have blue eyes but none of us got blue eyes. Can't believe two people with hazel eyes (and genetics of course) FINALLY got a blue-eyed babe.

Hair: Brown with a hint of red..? I see it when she's in the sun. 

Sleeping: Same as last month | She's sleeping throughout the night. Yay! She'll go to bed anywhere between 7-9 p.m. and wake up around 7:00-8:30ish a.m. When she wakes up I make her a bottle, she plays for 30 minutes or so and is ready for her morning nap. She usually has around 3-4 naps a day. 

Eating: She's been drinking 7oz (Gerber Soothe) and eats Earth's Best organic oatmeal for breakfast with fruit added into the oatmeal. She loves apples, pears and bananas in her oatmeal. She's been eating Organic Beech-Nut baby food and seems to like most flavors. She tried steamed broccoli for the first time and loved it. 

  • She has four teeth coming in at the top 
  • She pulls herself up on things.
  • She's crawling and scooting. She's not the best at it but she's getting the hang of it. I sometimes get worried that she's a little behind but I have to remind myself not to compare her with other babies. I honestly feel like she'll skip crawling and go straight to taking steps.
  • Says "mama" "dada" "baba"
  • She understands us when we say certain words. For example, when I say "bottle" she'll start whining and wanting her bottle.
  • She hardly wants to be held anymore. If you're standing up she's fine but as soon as you sit down, she'll try and scoot off your lap.
  • She's getting more spots of eczema all over her back, shoulders, arms and neck. We picked up a new shampoo/body wash and we limited bath time to every other day. We also try not to leave her in there too long, which is sad because she loves bath time. 
  • She's getting a lot better at picking her apple puffs up and other miscellaneous items up off the floor. She's so fast at it! 
  • Sometimes its hard for her to fall asleep for her nap and if we watch little baby bum videos, she'll just stay up even though she's exhausted; so we've been watching Fixer Upper (love that show) and she usually falls asleep quick.

Nicknames: We call her by her name.

  1. My daughter suffers from eczema pretty bad! I know it's different for all babies but one thing they have really recommended we do is the bath every night and let her soak 15-20 then pat dry and use aquaphor or something similar all over to seal the moisture in and then put her in 100% cotton pjs. I think the eucerin ezcema relief cream helps a lot when she itches and we use seventh generation free and clear laundry detergent!
