We had her 9 month check up and she is right on track:
-Weight is 17.12 pounds
-Head is 43.45
She had 2 shots and barely cried at all, she has such a huge tolerance for pain :) And she has 2 bottom 2 with another 2 coming in on top.
Eating: She is still really into purees and not liking bits of food like avocado or blueberries, so I am still feeding her homemade baby food from the Beaba: Sweet Potatoes, Strawberries, Avocados, Spinach, etc and she is not liking the leafy greens but we still try to get her to eat them, and we mix everything with her cereals so she gets iron. I've introduced some egg and chicken and she likes some of that, but pureed meats are still kind of gross to me, so I am sticking to veggies for now. She is also still breastfed about 3-4 times a day (and then her night snacking of course :)
Sleep: Sigh. The poor thing had her first ear infection on 2/14 so her sleep this month has been terrible! She still wakes up every 3-4 hours at night, which means I am getting up too, but it's much easier for me to get up and feed her for 10 minutes and we all go back to bed happy. Todd wants me to let her cry more, but at 2am, just kind of hard to do! She is taking 2 naps, morning around 9:30am -11am and an afternoon around 1:30-3:30pm. I try to get both girls down at the same time so I can lay down too, but sometimes it's just a 30 minute break, ugh. Sleep when the baby sleeps just doesn't happen when you have 2 kids :)
Physical: This girl can move! She started really crawling around the 15th of Feb. And pulls up too, cruising around. She also is into WAY more stuff than Luna was, like pushing things out of the way to get to it- the other day she pushed our speaker out to get to the back wires! I guess you have to be quick and fearless when you are the second born. Check out the video below. I have tried to film her pulling up so many times, but each time I tried she saw my phone and wanted to play with it!
Social: She is all smiles is all I have to say! She smiles at everyone and tries to get people's attention like she's 19 months old and not 9! She also loves her big sister and copies everything she does. She does great in the car seat now and not many fussies at all, hard to believe she used to be super colicky!! She also loves to clap and loves patty cake. She hasn't really had much stranger anxiety at all or separation anxiety yet. Just a few times gets upset when we sit her down on the floor and walk away :)
She is our angel baby!!
