Nine-Months Old

Sorry about the delay on this post; I do realize it's been over a week since she turned 9 months (2/23). We had some photographs taken and were waiting on those to get back before posting, but in the meantime, I'll give you her wellness stats:

1. Weight 19 lbs 9 oz. (50-75th percentile)

2. Height 27 1/2 inches (50th percentile)

3. Head Circumference 46 (90-95th percentile, which I hope just means that she has a big brain brewing in there!)

Here's what she's got going on:

1. We've officially counted her first word as "Hi", which she said a couple of times about a month ago and now she's actually associating it with holding her hand up and waving

2. She's still not a crawler, although she does tolerate tummy-time better (probably hard to hold that huge head of hers ;)

3. She loves to walk: she loves her walker; she loves holding our fingers and just making a mad-dash across the room (we think that she may forego crawling and just go straight to walking)

4. She pulls up on her own

5. She knows (and hates) the word "No". When you tell her "No" she yells back and protests (it's like having a teenage girl already!)

6. She's eaten puffs, her first official solid, which she didn't know what to make of at first but now she holds them in her hand, puts them in her mouth, and chews on them:

7. She's cutting her first teeth (the bottom front 2; finally, it feels like she's been teething forever!)

8. A new one that Lola just showed me today: she'll touch her face or lips to your face if you ask for a kiss (awww!)

9. She's had her first snow:

Just precious! She sounds so much like Payton - big head, not crawling, late teether! Ha!

Pictures are so cute! I just love her all bundled up for the snow. :)
