Month 9

Dearest Brynn,

You are 9 months now.  I can not believe it.  So much has changed in 9 months.  You are no longer this little peanut, you are growing and changing faster than I feel like I can blink.

Your daddy and I say everyday...is it possible to love you more than yesterday?  Is it possible that you got cuter than you were the day before?  Its silly, but I think what we mean is that we are just amazed by you.  Amazed that we got to be your parents, and amazed at the abundance of love and completeness you have brought this family.  

We feel truly blessed beyond measure that God chose us to be your parents.  You have such a sweet little soul and you have made us better people the moment you entered our lives.
Thank you baby love :)

We love you to the moon & back.
xoxo
Mommy & Daddy


baby stats

Sleep: Sleeping through the night still. 12 hours...7 to 7.
Taking three naps.  One little one in the morning shortly after waking up.  One long one 1-2 hours around
lunch time and if you take a third it is a short 30 minute in the evening.
Feeding: You have become quite the little pro at self feeding.  You eat regular ol people food these days.  You just took to it right away and we have just gone with it.  You normally eat a pancake or waffle and some fruit for breakfast with a 7 ounce bottle.  Lunch varies...you love deli meat!  Dinner..normally whatever we are eating with some more veggies.  You have 3 sometimes 4 bottle a day.  Snacks: started with puffs but have moved on to cheerios and crackers.  You finally love the sippy cup and carry it around with your water in it.  You also pause during meals to take a little sip and then go right back to eating.  It cracks us up what a little person you are becoming.

Firsts: First time having dairy since we found out about your milk allergy at 3 months.  You have officially had cheese and yogurt with no reactions! This makes my mama heart so happy.  We got the go ahead to try you back on regular formula in hopes that you have outgrown this.  As soon as we finish this can we are going to try it out.  Im so nervous but also so hopeful that you can enjoy regular dairy.

Milestones: Wow where to start!  You clap your hands when you are excited or we say yay! You dance and bounce up and down whenever you hear music.  You self feed yourself all your meals using your little pincer grasp.  Finally took to the sippy cup.  You give sugars now upon requests.  You wave hi and bye.  You officially call us all by name.  Mama, dada and lilly.  You cruise from furniture to furniture.  You walked this month all by yourself on your little pushing walker and this week you started standing unassisted for little short periods of time before falling.  You are on fire girl!

Favorite toy:  Still your "beep beep" hands down.  You love that car!
