Jeanette was 9 months old on October 23rd but I have not had time to post her update!!!
Height: I can't find my measuring tape but I know she's gotten longer. We will find out at her 9 month appointment next week.
Weight: 18 1/2lbs as of Thursday, she's getting so big!
Clothes/Diapers: Jeanette is mostly wearing 9 month clothes and 12 month pajamas because she needs the extra length. I still need my mom to take in most of her pants because they are too big in the waist but she needs them to be longer. She's still in a size 2 diaper and again, I don't see that changing anytime soon.
Sleep: Jeanette has had a few days were she did not want to take a morning nap and others where she did not want to take an afternoon nap. She still sleeps well at night, from 8:30pm to 7:00am most days.
Feedings: We are still doing three bottles a day and solids three times a day. She loves to eat and is starting to express to me that she is ready for more finger foods. We have been doing the puffs and have also tried pieces of banana and some unseasoned, baked french fries too. She loves that she can feed herself! We tried meat once and she almost threw up so I've decided to wait and try again. I haven't given her juice or cows milk yet and plan to ask the pediatrician about when/if I should do those things. I also made her some baby food pancakes today and she LOVED them! I stored some in the fridge and freezer for later :)
Worst Moment(s): Teething has not been fun! Poor girl has four bottom teeth and I think her top eye teeth are going to come through soon. It's hard for her to nap on the days her teeth hurt and she sometimes wakes in the night and needs rocked back to sleep. We also found out that our sitter won't be able to watch Jeanette anymore after mid-November and have had little luck finding someone else.
Best Moment(s): Watching Jeanette's little personality develop has been so much fun. She changes by the day and it's amazing to watch her learn and grow.
Development: Jeanette is crawling well on her hands and knees, she can pull herself up on the couch and chair onto her knees but hasn't gotten on her toes yet. She can clap her hands, say mama, dada, baba, caca, and dat. She can pass objects from one hand to another and her pincer grasp is getting really good. She can put food into her mouth without much effort and can recognize the faces of her family members.
Jeanette Likes: Eating is probably her favorite thing on earth right now along with music, bath time, chasing the cat and dog, ripping up papers, moving to music, being snuggled and clapping her hands.
Jeanette Dislikes: There aren't too many dislikes besides the failed attempt at trying meat.....
|I wanted to get some outdoor photos of Jeanette in her Carhartts|
and finally did this weekend. She's such a ham when the camera
comes out and it's adorable!
|I only managed to get one good photo with her belly sticker|
before she ripped it off and tried to eat it!
