Nine Month Update





Age: Nine Months

Height:  25 1/2 Inches

Weight:  17 lbs. 8 oz.

Milestones:  This little lady is changing by the day.  She is officially a mobile, interactive, and super curious baby girl - and definitely nothing like that newborn that we brought home nine months ago.  She can pull herself up and does just that on just about anything that she can get those little hands on.  Waverly is more vocal everyday and can now say both momma & dadda.  She will continuously repeat both, and at this point, our hearts still melt every time.  One of the cutest milestones so far?  Waverly now claps her hands when we clap ours.  It is so fun to watch her imitate and clearly understand what is going on around her.

Sleep:  Our sleep situation is still unpredictable.  We have had some nights of pure bliss (uninterrupted sleep), and others when she was literally up every hour.  On the hour.  Naps are another area that we could certainly use work on.  Since Waverly goes to quite a few different places each week, it is really hard to get her on a solid schedule.  We are so lucky to have family that can watch her everyday, but I am really looking forward to being off this summer and getting her on a routine. 

Eating:  This girl LOVES to eat.  We have no problems getting her on a good meal schedule, and if anything, I'm pretty sure she would like to eat just about all day long (wouldn't we all?!).  Current favorites are the Gerber yogurts, Yogurt Melts, Puffs, Cinnamon Maple Wheels, and Mum-Mums.  Sense a theme?  She is a total sweets girl, just like her momma.  We are SUPER excited to start table food this month and see just what else those little taste buds crave. 

Favorite Moments:  I have said it before and I'll say it again ... each month gets better & better.  Waverly now clearly has her own personality and it is SO much fun to watch it develop more by the day.  Her sweet laughs are contagious and I just can't help but be my happiest when I am around her (duh?!)  Some of her favorite things right now are being outside, playing with my IPhone, Ipad or any other technology, her Wub-Nub, and getting her hands on anything & everything.  A highlight of our week remains our Sunday morning class at our kids gym - Waverly lights up when the music comes on & just loves being around other kids.

Worst Moments:  I have been convinced about ten different times that Waverly Maye is teething.  It is seriously the joke of the house (that every time Waverly is less than 100% happy she has a tooth trying to poke through).  The only low moments of this month have been when she was "teething" for a few days.  All the signs where there and she was totally unlike herself, but it is now a couple of weeks later and she is back to normal and all toothless.

Extra Comments:  This has been such a big month for Waverly Maye.  We are having so much fun with her, and seriously can't stop talk about how wonderful she is.  Each month, we always say that it feels like the BEST age ever.  This one really does feel like it.  That is, until next month ...

  1. We have the same running joke at our house about teething....she's had several bouts of what seemed like it could be nothing but teething, but here we are at almost 11 months and NOTHING! Just wait until you see all the new stuff she is going to do/learn in the next month! Sadie seemed to grow up so much during this 10th month and it's so crazy how much she seems to understand and how she interacts with us differently! It's so much fun!
