- Pulling herself up on everything
- Standing by herself for seconds at a time
- DEMANDING to take your hands to walk around. She only crawls if she has to.
- Increasing her vocab to include “nananananana” and “doy doy doy”
- Eating more solid food like shredded chicken, cheerios, chunks of potato and fruit, etc…and making a BIG mess in the process
- Getting diaper rash so bad it blistered :(
- Getting her first bad cold (then giving it to mommy, then to daddy, then to the grandparents)
- Using a sippy cup by her self (this one is scary to watch…it makes her look so big!)
- Having her 9 month check up – 28 inches and 20lbs 3 oz
- Growing out of clothes to the point that Mom and Dad actually had to go buy more
- Going swimming for the first time
And I’m sure much more. All I can say is that my favorite part of life right now is being able to go home after work, feed Bella (and JT) then have a good solid chunk of family playtime. The only thing that tops that are weekends where we can have hours on end of family playtime. All we have to do is let her loose with some of her toys and it is hours of entertainment. I can’t imagine it getting much better than this, but I know it does – which makes me very fortunate!
