9 months

I just love this age! Faegan has started imitating us and we have had the best time learning what she can do. She can stick out her tongue and smack her lips on cue.

Faegan has added some sounds to her vocabulary. For the longest time we just had "mama", but last week (this post is old, so this was just as she turned 9 months) she just started saying "ba ba", "wa wa", "ga ga", and finally "da da". Ben was thrilled!

We finally had that hard headed front tooth push through this week, making a total of six teeth.

We have seen the beginnings of a little temper and impatience. When we are getting our pajamas on after bath, I can tell Faegan to push her arms through the arm holes and if she can't get it through in what she thinks is a timely manner, she gets mad and starts fussing. Heaven forbid we take something away from her that she doesn't need to be eating {ie. newspaper, magazine, dirt on floor, grass} - full out fit will be pitched. My dad will be proud that we have finally taught our baby how to cry.

Books make for yummy treats, and if you aren't paying attention, will have a nice hole in them in no time.

Bath time is scream time. Not the angry scream, the I'm-so-excited-I'm-in-the-bathtub scream.

Still not crawling, but you are trying so hard. You have started pulling up on things and just started being able to stand up all the way when you want to!

We are still in size 3 diapers and wearing 12 month dresses, 18 month bubbles. At our 9 month checkup, you were 19 pounds and 27 inches. That puts you on the 50th percentile for height and weight for your age, 75th weight for height.

She still loves all things food and continue to be a great eater. Our favorites right now are grapes {I have to hold out on these until the end or nothing else gets eaten}, blueberries, good strawberries {she throws away the ones that aren't juicy}, green peas, still loves plums, LOVES yogurt {will eat an entire YoBaby if hungry}, mandarin oranges, all baby food that is green {broccoli, pears, and peas; spinach, pears, peas}, and anything that is on our plate!

You are waking up at 6, napping at 8:15 until around 10, napping again at 1:15 until around 2:30, and bedtime at 7. You drink milk at 7, 10, 1, 4, and 7 with meals in between.

Bedtime routine includes reading a couple of books. You are so sweet and will lie back and listen to Good Night Moon and On The Night You Were Born. One night this week you kissed every page of Good Night Moon. I hold up the books to let you decide what book to read first and you look back and forth at each book until you make your decision. You also will turn those pages with a passion.

I don't know if I have ever mentioned this, but your hands and feet are CONSTANTLY moving. You move your feet in circles all the time.

We love you, sweet Faegan!
