9 Months

I'm sorry, what did I just type?!  How are you 9 Months old?!

Here is what you are up to!
-You weight 17 pounds 12 oz (only gained 7oz from 8 months)
-You are 25 1/4 inches long
-You are in size 3 diapers
-You are still in 6 months clothes but we are going to be making the switch to 9 month clothes this weekend.
-You are in bed by 7/7:30 and up by 7 sometimes you'll 'sleep-in' until 7:30 or 8 (that is rare though!)
-You are eating yogurt for Breakfast; at 7oz bottle about 10/10:30; lunch at 12/12:30, which consist of deli turkey, a slice of cheese, half a banana, yogurt melts and some gerber cheese puffs (if we are at home I give you applesauce); for dinner you get a 3rd food dinner and fruit.
 -I've been giving you a sippy cup with water in it for a few months now.  I try every few bites to give it to you and you will suck once or twice and then let the water run out your mouth...you think this is SO funny!  Well Mommy pulled one over on you! I put a tiny hint of apple juice in your cup and it's like you can't get enough.  You are definitely your momma's daughter.
-You celebrated your first Valentine's Day!  You got a book and a new Wubbanub.
-You are playing with all your toys, you are so interested in what they all do!  Noni bought you a little kitchen and you absolutely LOVE it!  It makes so much noise and every time you touch any part of it, it sings.  You just giggle!

-You think that kids are the funniest thing.  Chloe and Carsyn really get you going.  Carsyn is so sweet to you and he always tells you bye and wants to give you a kiss and hug.  Chloe is such a good big sister, she is ALWAYS playing with you, talking to you and she makes you giggle the most!
-You are noticing Gizmo more and more.  He is only interested in you when you have food (go figure!) or a dirty diaper :)

 -You are SO close to crawling!  You will reach far for a toy and flip yourself to your belly and then you get on your hands and knees and then you freeze!  It's like you get stage fright and don't know what to do next!  I bet by 10 months you are crawling!
-You are saying 'dada' and a few (very few) times we've heard 'mama'.
-You have gotten 4 RSV shots and you will get one more in March and you will be done.  I sure hope that the sickies are gone!!  They have been ramped this year and I am praising God you have been so healthy.

We are just loving all the new things you are doing.  We can't believe we are close to celebrating your first birthday, that is hard to say without a lump in my throat.  Sweet Harper we are blessed beyond words and we are so lucky God has chose us to be your parents.

Love you!
