Happy 9 Month Birthday!

I'm a little late in posting this, but oh well.  Kate turned 9 months old on May 10th so here is her monthly update (finally)!

She went to the doctor the day after she turned 9 months old and weighed 21 lbs 2 oz, which put her in the 89% for her weight.  She was 29 1/3 inches long, which put her in the 95% for her height.  Can't remember her head circumference but it was along the same percentiles.  I guess to sum up the stats, she's definitely still on track for being much taller than her 5' 1" Mama.  

She LOVES to eat and it does seem like she's wanting less and less formula and more and more solids.  She definitely wants table foods, and we try to let her have small tastes of our meals.   

She still sleeps well at nights.  Normally she goes to bed between 8 and 8:30 and wakes up around 7 or 7:30 in the mornings.  Naps are another story.   She hasn't been napping as well the past week during the day and basically fights taking a nap.  Then she'll go to sleep as soon as Kevin gets home with her and then sleep from 5:30 til 7:45ish.  I've had to wake her up from naps to feed her dinner and give her a bath before bed.  So we're still working on the whole napping thing.  However, today she took a 4 hour nap so maybe she was just saving it all up for the weekend. 

We THINK she's teething and are looking for her top teeth to pop through any day now.  She's been putting her hands in her mouth a lot- especially her thumb.  She'll have her thumb in her mouth facing up and just push against her top gums.  She hasn't been especially fussy but she's had a LOT of dirty diapers the past week.  Isn't that a sign of teething too?  So it's either the teething, or those sweet potato puffs that we just realized were sweet potato.  :) 

And what's a monthly update without lots of pictures?  So, here they are...







Oh Kate, you've grown SO much in the past 9 months. I can't believe that in just a few more months, we will be celebrating you being one year old!

  1. what an adorable little girl!! she's just so cute.

    and it does sound like she's teething...each kid responds differently, so maybe your lucky with Kate! hopefully, she won't get super fussy. one of my twins would run a fever and basically cry for days when a tooth was coming in. the other two were more easygoing with teething.
