Nine Months (+)

WOW! 9  months is such a pivotal time in a baby's life. I carried Catherine for 9 whole months! I loved her for 9 whole months BEFORE I even saw her sweet face!

Now, 9 months later, I love her more than I ever imagined. At 9 months old, she is such a little person with such a "real person" personality.

We had Catherine's 9 month check up with Dr. L. Of course, she is 17.8 lbs (25th percentile) and 28.5 inches (75th percentile). She is long and skinny!

At 9 months old, she is pulling up on EVERYTHING! She is cruising down the length of the couch. Catherine is an eating machine (which isn't obvious from her weight). She loved veggies, Club crackers and Animal Cookies.

She STILL only has two teeth and only says two words (Dr. L said that is COMPLETELY normal...especially for a 3rd child).

She loves music and dances all the time. Catherine's favorite person is definitely her Mommy! (Makes Daddy SO sad!) She has quite the temper and HATES to be put down.

Catherine is the best sleeper in the house. She goes to bed about 7 and sleeps until around 8 on the weekends. (I wish her older sisters would get into that routine!)

Sadly, Catherine is going on strike against her headbands. Her mohawk is still too thin to wear just hair bows and it's becoming so hard to get her to keep her headbands on. (This Mommy is VERY sad about that!)


NINE WHOLE MONTHS! WOWZA! I cannot believe you are growing in to such a big girl. I love that you want me to hold you all day (even though sometimes I seem a little annoyed). I love to rock you to sleep and could hold you in that glider for days. You are so special and have completed our little family perfectly. I love you so much!

BTW...her future husband thinks she is pretty! I saw Colton looking at her in class with that "special" look! LOL
