9 Months Old Today!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!… I had my 9-month checkup today and am happy to report that I am still healthy and strong!

  • I am 29 inches long.
  • I weigh 20 pounds and 4.5 oz.
  • I have been crawling since last Saturday! (I am very fast and I love being chased!)
  • I can pull myself up using anything… even just a plain wall surface!
  • Despite the carpet in our apartment, I can walk around in my walker.  No problem!
  • My two top teeth are almost totally in and my bottom two teeth just broke the surface of my gums.
  • Needless to say, sleeping is challenging right now with all the new activity and growing pains in my life.  I still only take (2) 30-minute naps during the day unless I’m napping with someone.  Now that I can pull myself up in the crib, it’s impossible for me to stay asleep at night for more than 4 hours without standing up.  Mama and Papa are trying to sleeptrain me again.  Uh oh!
  • New foods since I turned 8 months old: hard-boiled egg yolks, asparagus, yogurt, cottage cheese, whole wheat bagels, papaya, and my new favorite — Joe’s O’s cereal (Trader Joe’s version of Cheerios cereal)… I don’t really like fava beans or bananas.
  • My new favorite word = “JUICE!” (you have to shout it enthusiastically along with the sign language sign for it.)
  • I answer to my name and I know what “Papa” means.
  • I’m babbling a lot.
  • I have been to two movies in movie theaters.  I am a true LA baby!
  • I have been on two airplane rides and I’m about to go on my 3rd tomorrow when we visit Lola and Lolo in Sacramento.
