Sweet baby, you are 9 months old today!! You are getting smarter, stronger, and more beautiful with each and every day. You amaze daddy and me constantly. Daddy bought you your first motorcycle (walker) this month, and after a few days you became a champ at pushing it all over the house. You are standing and getting bolder and bolder each day. Bathroom doors now have to stay shut because someone has discovered they can use the toilet to stand up and that makes mommy want to vomit. You had your first laugh attack over something Mackie was doing. You just laughed and laughed till you couldn't breath! And then you laughed some more. I videoed it, and it melts my heart to hear your sweet giggles. Some of mommy's best friends have little boys around your age, so you have dates a few times a week.
Dislikes: Being on her changing table. It's like she is being murdered at every diaper or outfit change.
7:30/8:00- wake up
6:30-Bath, books, boob, and in bed by 7:00
9:30-dream feed her before I pass out.
She nurses when she wakes up in the morning, as well as from her naps.
We read her Bible and Panda Bear, Panda Bear every night. Often she'll stop nursing and sit up and look from her nightstand to me until I grab one of her books. Then she'll lean back against me and sit so quietly until I finish both books. Only then will she resume nursing. Being the bookworm that I am, this totally melts my heart.
Dinner consists of an organic grain-based pouch/tofu/cooked beans, fresh fruit and veggies, and puffs. A few times a week she will also get some organic shredded cheese. Naturally most of the food ends up on the floor, but she is doing so well at feeding herself. I give her a light snack after she nurses at breakfast and lunch, with the purpose of getting her into the habit of 3 meals a day. Sometimes I dice her food, but normally it's given to her in big chunks that she can easily hold.
