you are 9 months old! you are the most fun, laidback baby i know. so fun and smiling all of the time. you are getting so big! we just went for your 9 month check-up and you weighed 18 pounds 7 ounces and were 27 1/2 inches tall. i can't remember your head size, but it's in the 75th percentile... you have a big noggin right now. you are wearing 6-9 and 6-12 month clothes and size 3 diapers. you LOVE to eat, but are super picky. you hate most vegetables and aren't a big fan of trying new things. right now, you are loving peach yogurt, cheerios, any fruit, and apples with chicken. you love to bang toys on everything and make noise, climb the stairs, and get into everything. if mama tells you "no", you just laugh and get into everything even more. you say mama and dada now (you said dada first) and love to clap. you think it's hilarious when you clap and people say "yay!" makes you clap even more! you still think your sister is the coolest person you know... i hope this lasts for a while! you are crawling like a madman, standing up for long periods of time (holding on to nothing!), and have started standing up from a sitting position without pulling up on anything. it's only a matter of time before you start walking and our lives become even more chaotic! you are such an incredible blessing to our lives, and we love having you around!
mama, dada, and hadleigh
