Nine Months Old

Here she is 3/4 of a year already! Wow - it really does go fast. She is army crawling around our house like a storm. Clapping is a regular habit and gets especially excited when we cheer and clap with her. She loves to open and close books, hold little balls, pull up on things and can easily go from laying on her tummy to sitting up. We often find her sitting in her crib playing after a nap. Speaking of which. She takes pretty good naps. A long morning one - around 9 or 9:30 that lasts for an hour and a half to two hours and then an afternoon one. Usually around 2 or 2:30, but this morning her morning nap started late and went long so who knows when her afternoon nap will start. Its almost 3 and she is still crawling around playing with her books.

She loves the dog although if he is in her way she will yell at him. He doesn't take her toys but is not happy when she takes his - which she loves. She enjoys splashing her hand in his water dish, even when he's drinking from it. She feeds the dog from her highchair and he occasionally lets a low growl out when she gets a bit too close to his breakfast and dinner. We have been trying to separate them during his mealtimes so as to discourage this behavior.

She sleeps well from 7:30/8pm to about 5/5:15am and if we are lucky for an hour to an hour and a half, she will go back to sleep after her morning feed. She only nurses three other times a day - before both naps and before bed. She is now up to three meals a day - yogurt for breakfast, fruit and oatmeal/cereal for lunch and veggies and cereal for dinner. I need to add in more meat but I will talk to the doctor about that at her next appointment.

Sorry if all this information is boring - I'm not good at keeping a baby book so I figure this is the only way to record all this information and not loose it before it all gets forgotten again.

Oh yea - and still only the two bottom teeth - one she got over mother's day weekend and one over memorial day weekend.
