Nine Months

Sleep:  Beatrix goes to bed at 7pm and we get her up for the day betwen 7:00-7:30am.  Some days she sleeps all night, some days she does not.  I don't feel tired every day anymore, so that's a good thing.  She takes one 15-90 minute nap around 9:30 and takes another 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon.

Food: She takes 4 6oz bottles a day and loves to eat "real" food.  She eats a full meal at dinner and something small at lunch.  Right now her favorites are broccoli, shredded cheese, spaghetti, cooked carrots and veggie straws.  We still feed her purees, but she would rather eat what we're having.  I've just introduced her to pureed pouches, which will be nice when we're on the go.

Play: She's clapped before, but this week she's been clapping ALL DAY LONG.  She loves it, especially if you comment on the fact that she's clapping.  (Obviously that calls for more clapping.)  She sometimes waves.  She's been getting louder and likes to make Ma-ma-ma and La-la-la sounds, among others.  She still enjoys her jumperoo, but only if someone is watching her congratulating her on her great jumping skills.  She smiles at everyone in grocery stores and makes friends wherever she goes.

Movement:  She crawls all over the house now.  Miraculously, she waiting until after Christmas, so we took our tree down shortly after the 25th.  She is starting to try to pull up, but usually stops when she gets to her knees.  She easily gets herself into a sitting position on her own.

Size: On our home scale she's still just over 20lbs.  Her appointment is on Tuesday, so I'll update this then.  I packed away the 9m(6-9m) clothes a couple weeks ago because she was too tall for them.  She fits into 6-12 and 12m(9-12m) clothes nicely.  She's wearing 6-12m shoes and I moved up to size 4 diapers(But that was mostly a logistics thing, I think size 3 would fit for about a month still.).  Her first tooth finally popped through on Wednesday and other is half-way through today.
