N I N E months of Jo

Our sweet Jolie is nine months!
That could only mean one thing....the first birthday planning is officially in full swing.
While, Jolie is just getting more fun by the day I can't help but be a little sad by just how fast time is flying.  I mean even faster this time around. ugh.

With that being said, nine months is the best so far.  Our little bit has conquered so much in the last month.  We are officially crawling, standing, side stepping furniture, clapping, saying mama, dada, yayyyy and hi!  You have waved bye bye a few times, but you really have to concentrate on it to make it happen, so funny.  We had your nine month doctor visit yesterday, along with your sisters 3 year well check.  You were a very happy girl until shot time, but who can blame you.  Your sister stood by you and held your hand the whole time, telling you repeatedly to be brave. melt. my heart.

Height: 27 inches 21st percentile
Weight: 20 lbs 80th percentile
Hair: sandy blonde
Eyes: Hazel???

Clothes size: I put you in anything from 6months to 12 months.  Bubbles I have been buying 18 months so you can wear through the summer.  Jammies you are still in 6 months with your tiny little legs.

Diapers: size four.

Feeding: Still the same with bottles. three 6oz and an 8oz before bed.
We started weaning off the baby food the past two weeks...starting to eat mostly people food.  Haven't found anything you won't eat yet haha.

Sleep:  You are an excellent sleeper and give me no problems.  You take a morning nap around 8:30 (1 hr), then 11 (2 hrs)  and 3 (1 hr).  You go down for the night at 7 and wake up between 6-7 in the morning.  Knock on wood, you never wake up in the middle of the night and are so happy when we are reunited in the morning :)

Play:  now that you are crawling and climbing you are all over. You are constantly trying to keep up with your sister, following her everywhere.  You always want in on what she is doing..whether thats coloring, puzzles, tea are right there in the middle of it.  Standing has made you more interested in the play kitchen and the food inside of the little oven.  You love to crawl to the little train car and play the piano keys on the front.  You love love love the pool and will just chill and float around in your little float forever.  You also love to swing with your sister on the swingset.  We bought a little mermaid sprinkler last month and you also love that, when puddles form on the ground you love slamming your hands in them over and over again.  

Firsts: first trip to Disney, first trip to Gulf Shores.
First time at Splash Park.

Milestones: crawling, clapping, giving sugars on demand.
saying hi and yay.

Dearest Jolie,

My sweet tiny little lady, you are growing so fast.  I can't believe all you have mastered this past month.  In a few short months we will be celebrating your first birthday, holy moly!  I am soaking up all your baby days, your squishy cheeks, soft skin and chunky little legs.  You are the biggest cuddler, lover and snuggler.  You totally know the way to my heart with the way you smile and lay your sweet head on my chest and wrap your arms around me.  I swearrr you are giving hugs and know how much I love them :)

You are still the happiest little munchkin, it takes next to nothing to make you smile. You are such a go with the flow baby and I am so thankful for that.  You are so content to be on the go, such a little people watcher you are.  With that, you have also perfected your judging face, and often totally grill strangers who are talking to you!  It takes you a while to warm up, but once you do its like you have always loved them. 

You are cutting so many teeth this month and are a little extra clingy and cranky pants.  While I am not used to this side of you...not being your usual happy quiet self...I am trying to soak up all the extra cuddles that you want.  You are sweeter than sweet my little bit.

We love you our little Jolie Bean.  You are the light of our lives.

We love you so so much,
Love Mommy & Daddy.
