Felicity 9 months

9 months old

Something about the 9 month birthday seems momentous. We carry our babies for 9 months (or longer), so to see them reach the 9 months mark outside the womb is special.

Felicity is a little ball of sunshine. She smiles all the time, everyone is her friend. She loves her family and thinks daddy and brother are so funny. From the time she gets up she just lights up our world.

Not sure how much she weighs or height- I'll know that at her well baby appointment tomorrow. She's still in size 3 diapers and moving into 12 month old clothes.

Her new favorite things are eating and books--but thankfully, not really eating books! The baby-led weaning light switch has turned on and she is gobbling everything she can get in her mouth. Half of it ends up in her bib and chair, but she is trying. All the food! Favorites include strawberries, yogurt and chicken. 

She lovessss reading. Board books with flaps are so fun for her. We'll sit in the glider in her room and she will peek around me to look at her books when she wants to read. She picks the book, and is animated about reading, turning pages, etc. She squeals and claps and talks to the book. I love it! Her favorites right now are baby lit pride and prejudice, where is baby's belly button and Sophie the giraffe.

She has slept through the night many nights. Usually sleeps 8 pm to 7 am, and sometimes she'll get up once or twice. However, she doesn't nap too well. We are lucky to get one hour nap. Even if she's tired.

She has two teeth and is working on some more. These photos crack me up, you can tell her mouth is hurting her a little by the way she's smiling!

Surprising to me, she's not craving yet. She gets up on her forearms and knees, and she can rotate on her tummy or on her bottom, but she doesn't make much movement yet and it frustrates her. She likes watching everything from a seated position and she can reach REAL far out to grab something. So flexible!

I feel so blessed to have this sweet baby girl. She's my little side kick and i just love going places with her. She went on two photo shoots with me this month just because of logistics, and she did great. She loves going to baby showers and parties with me. Felicity is just a joy, and I'm really loving this stage in her life. I wish I could freeze time for a bit!

Here are some photos from today! She's pulling bits of fuzz off the horse to eat, of course. :-)
