I took Lacey in for her 9 month update. I look at her and wonder "where on earth did my baby go?" This is not a baby this is a mini-toddler! Time seriously flies.
She now weighs 19 lbs 8 ounces (only a 2 lb 2 oz gain in 3 months).
She is 28 inches long (grew 3.5 inches in 3 months!)
She's made quite a bit of strides in the past month.
Lacey can now:
CRAWL!! Mom and Dad have been waiting forever for this one.
Pull up to a stand
Cruise around furniture (okay, so its more like inching around furniture...)
Run while holding on to mom or day
Drink out of a straw.
Feed herself her bottle and sippy cup with ease.
She can drink out of a regular glass without spilling most of the time.
Take off her own diaper (this is not cool).
Says 4 words: Mama, Dada, All Done (Ah Dah), and duck.
Points to her mouth when asked.
Points to lights when you ask her where are the lights.
Points outside when asked.
Waves "hi' and "bye" on command. (usually)
Dances to music on the TV or background music at the store.
Smiles at everyone she meets...no stranger anxiety here yet.
Still ZERO teeth and zero on the horizon from what i can tell.
Lacey still is taking 2 naps regularly. One at arournd 9:15 am and the other around 2 pm. Her normal bedtime is between 8 and 8:30. She is still eating mostly jarred baby food because she prefers it to table food. She isn't very interested in feeding herself, which is still fine by me because there is carpet under her high chair, so the longer i can avoid the mess the better. She'll try anything once and doesn't seem to be very picky about much. She is drinking 24-26 ounces a day.
