Amelia: 9 Months

dsc_0216

Dear Amelia,

What a month! It hasn’t just been crazy for us; it’s been crazy for you too! But despite all of the changes and moving around, your personality has completely blossomed. You are super happy these days, pretty laid back and curious as ever. We’ve obviously noticed a big change in you but so have others that you see pretty regularly.

We spent most of your ninth month on-the-go. First, we headed down to Nashville for Uncle Josh’s 30th, then to Evansville for Daddy’s work and a day trip to Holiday World. After, we flew out west to Montana to explore Glacier National Park. And last but not least, we made our way back down to Evansville to see your aunt, uncle and cousins that were unexpectedly home from Guam. Of the 30 days of your ninth month, we were gone for EIGHTEEN!

While we’ve been on-the-go as a family, you’ve been doing a lot of moving on your own too! You started crawling just a few days before you turned nine months and began pulling up on us just two days later. You’re still moving slow, thank goodness, but we’re so proud of you, baby girl!

As always, we love watching you grow and learn new things, but I’m getting a little sad that it’s all happening so fast. I wish I could keep you a little nugget for a while. We love you so much, Amelia Rose!

Love,

Mom & Dad

Weight: 16 lbs, 7 oz
Height: 28 in
Clothing size: 6 – 9 month clothes

Amelia Likes: Crawling, laughing, flying on airplanes, playing with Charlotte’s big girl toys, remotes and phones and pulling all of her books off of her bookshelf.
Amelia Dislikes: Getting ready for bed, being woken up and being in a car seat for too long.

Firsts: Airplane ride, Knight summer vacation and crawling!

Diapers: Amelia is still in medium cloth diapers at home and size 3 disposables. Like I said above, she is such a little nugget!

Sleep: She still sleeps from about 7:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. and takes three naps a day. We are hoping to drop that third nap sometime in the next month though!

Feed: We are still nursing four times a day, followed by baby food at breakfast, lunch and dinner times. We’ve tried introducing real foods for the last few weeks, but she has a TERRIBLE gag reflex and sometimes throws everything back up. It’s at least getting better, though. She is able to do puffs and yogurt melts really well now — so we’re moving in the right direction!
