Amelia- 9 months

Happy 9 month birthday to Miss Millie! We just can't get enough of this sweet, easy going gal. She is certainly growing up and we need time to slow down!
  • Millie loves sitting in her high chair and LOVES to eat! She nurses 5 times a day and then eats solids 3 times a day. She loves eating tiny bits of pretty much everything we are eating...recently tried french toast, meatballs, and chicken. She loves bread, yogurt, and fruits and veggies the most! She loves watermelon and cantaloupe. We are trying to teach her to make the "more" sign...but for now to say more she bangs on her left hand on her high chair tray. It's pretty cute!
  • Millie is talking like crazy! She has a lot to say!  She has also found her voice and is starting to yell pretty loudly when she wants something or needs attention. 
  • She continues to be so grabby. And especially loves to grab grass and try and eat it. I love how in many of the pictures we took this month she is doing just that. 
  • She loves playing at her round about and is getting really good and pushing herself around to play at the different little play stations. And she is discovering a lot of new toys. She loves finger puppets, her little kitchen, Sophie, beads, our Fisher Price farm, and anything that makes noise. She also adores riding in our wagon when we go out for walks. 
  • Has 4 teeth. And numbers 5 and 6 will be popping out any day!
  • Sleeps from 7pm-6:30am and takes 2 naps...8:30-10am and 1-3pm. I am very lucky!
  • Wears mostly size 6 months clothes but just pulled out a few 9 month things that aren't too big. Is now wearing size 3 diapers. 
  • Millie is also starting to move...she isn't crawling yet but is really good and getting around by rolling and doing a backwards crawl (pushes herself backwards).
  • Weighs 16 lbs 7 oz (20%ile)
  • 25 inches long (0.26%ile)

  1. Millie is sure growing up. It is hard to believe that she is already nine months old. These photos are precious! We love the information on what she is doing now. We love you and miss you.
