Monthly Updates: Month Nine

You're just days away from being in our arms for longer than you were in Mommy's belly. Such a great milestone!  We love you and the energy that you bring to our family--you are always up for an adventure! 
Your smile can still light up a room and it can instantly make everything all better! You're such joy...I'm so thankful that you are mine!
Here are some special highlights for your NINTH month:

Weight: 20.3 pounds (67%)
Height: 28.3 inches (60%)
Head Circumference: 45 cm (56%)
Clothing Size:  You are wearing 9 and 12 month clothing. Your shirts are usually 12 months and your shorts/jeans are usually 9 month. You scream and kick when we get you dressed. You do not like to stop to get dressed.
Diapers: Size 4 Target brand
Feeding: You are starting to self-feed and you are eating most of the food that we eat. We will occasionally throw in a baby food jar during meal time so we can ensure you are getting all your veggies and fruits. You've also mastered the sippy cup and we are working on drinking out of a straw. You are so proud of yourself when you grab your sippy cup and tilt it back to get a drink!
Hair/Eyes: Bright blue eyes and light blonde hair. 
Sleep: You go to sleep around 7:30pm and you are up at 5:00am for a quick bottle and then you'll go back to sleep until Amelia runs in the room to wake you up. You will take a quick (30-40 minute) nap in the morning and a longer (1-2 hour) nap in the afternoon. You aren't much of a prefer to lay down in your bed so you can stretch out. You prefer to sleep on your belly, in the left end of your bed.
