9 Months Old

Avery Lynn is so much fun these days. I can't believe that she is nine months old. We went for her 9mo check-up today and she weighed in at 16lb 1oz (13th percentile). Length was 27 inches but that is what she measured in length at her 6th month appt and I think that had something to do with the fact that she was screaming by the time the nurse was measuring her and stretching a baby out when they are pitching a fit isn't the easiest way to calculate length. So I assure you that she is longer than she was 3 months ago but we just don't know how long. : ) Her head is also growing, coming in at the 95th percentile so it looks like she might just have a big o noggin like her big brother. Hopefully it will be filled with brains as we like to think that Caden's is. Anyway here is what Avery Lynn is up to these days...

  • Speech: She can say Mama, Dada, Hi, & Bye-Bye. She has started jabbering sentences. Obviously I don't know what she is saying but what I mean is she started using more than just one sound/word over and over again. She changes it up and makes multiple sounds sounding more like a sentence.

  • Sleep: She sleeps about 11 hrs at night and naps morning and afternoon for about 1.5 to 2hrs. She is a great sleeper!

  • Food: She does all kinds of baby food and still nurses 4 times a day. She also likes crackers, puffs, cheerios, & shredded cheese. She likes a sippy cup with water. She has five teeth(six someday really soon).

  • Movement: She is good at sitting up on her own but hasn't decided she is ready to crawl just yet. She will turn and wiggle a bit while on her stomach to get a toy that is out of reach but she is pretty content just staying put. She loves the Johnny Jumper that hangs from the door frame. She is a bouncing fool in that thing.

  • Other Fun Fact: She loves to give kisses (wide open mouth ones). She can clap her hands and sign "more" when she wants more food. She likes waving Hi. She loves her big brother, he can always make her laugh. She loves pulling hair (especially brothers).

Here are some pictures of our cutie from the last few weeks.

Trying on a hat from her closet!

Dressing her up.

Happy as can be!
