Riley 9 Months

First of all let me say that I am SO far behind on my blogging (and reading other's blogs). I may try to go back and post some pics from Christmas. For now I'll stick with current events.

Riley turned 9 months old on the 16th. She's growing up so fast! I don't remember time going by quite this fast with Sawyer. It'd hate to see how fast it goes if we have a third!

Some things Riley has been up to:

  • She has left backwards-only and crab crawling styles behind! She is now full steam ahead! And the heads straight for the totally not baby-proofed play room.

  • She is back to eating the full array of stage 2 baby foods. She is also eating some things from the table. But I think there is as much food in the high chair seat that ends up in her mouth. However, she is not that crazy about stage 3 dinners so far.

  • She weighed 22 lbs 4 oz and was 29 inches long at her 9 month check up. She is in the 90-95% for both. Sawyer weighed 21 lbs at a year old. She did still have fluid in both ears, so if she still has fluid in a month we will visit the ENT for tubes.

Check out those legs!
  • Riley is babbling a lot but no "real" words so far.
  • She loves to clap and shake her head "no-no."

  • She attempts to pull up, but has not been very successful so far. She does love standing up and playing though.
  • She has SIX teeth (2 on top and 4 on bottom) and loves to brush her teeth.

    I just love this pouty face!
  • She has been on soy formula since I stopped pumping, but we are successfully adding milk-based formula (and some whole milk today) to her bottles and she's tolerating it just fine!
  • Her hair is starting to grow in much more now.

She is a sweet, happy, easy-going baby. And Sawyer is a wonderful big brother. I am so blessed!
