Nine Months Old!


Olivia,

You are nine months old today! What have you been up to?

You are wearing 9 month clothes and still in size 3 diapers. I think you’re over 20 pounds but we’ll have to wait until next week to find out your stats. You love to eat and you get very excited when you can feed yourself finger foods. You also love to drink out of a big cup.

You are still sleeping 12 hours a night, but you will not go to sleep unless I rock you to sleep. Big change from last month!

You will give Mommy kisses. Sometimes you’ll kiss Daddy, but usually it’s only Mommy.

You are cruising all over the place. You will move from the couch to a chair that’s a foot away. You’re walking with assistance and since you got a stroller for Christmas you love walking behind it. You’re very brave and will stand without holding on to anything for about five seconds. You play a lot in an almost squat. I think you’re very close to just standing up on your own.

Your first word was “cat”. Every time you see the cats you say cat and get so excited. If we ask you want a cat does you’ll hiss. It’s so cute. We also think you are saying “hi” to us, but we’re not sure.

You are very good at imitating. If we show you something a couple of time then you will try it out. You are starting to use your pointer finger to start toys and push shapes in your shape sorter.

We put you in a walker when we’re in the kitchen and you walk all over the place. You’re starting to explore and soon we’ll have to put latches on the cabinets.

You love to wave a people. You started out using your entire arm to wave but now you’re starting to just use your hand. You are also clapping and will sometime raise one arm for no reason.

You are very curious and love to watch everything that goes on around you.

You are still talking up a storm. You always have something to say. You love to talk on the phone. You get so excited when you hear a voice on the other side, but will not say anything until we take the phone away from your ear.

I can’t believe that you are nine months already! You are growing up so fast.  I love watching you explore and learn new things. I love snuggling with you and hearing your sweet laugh. Your daddy and I love you more and more each day. I love you my sweet Livie!

Mommy
