9 Months....

This past month has been so much fun with our Lucy girl! Time continues to fly by...we'll have a 1 year old before we know it! Happy 9 months Lucy Kate are simply the best and we love you like crazy!

9 month updates....

Weight: 20 lbs, 4 oz (75%)
Height: 29" (95%)
Head Circumference: 45.09 cms (75%)

This past month, we transitioned to 2 1.5 hour naps (from 2 2 hour naps). About 2 weeks ago, Lucy started having a hard time falling would take her 15-30 minutes compared to the usual 5 minutes or so. I figured this was the sign to start decreasing her nap times. So, I gave it a try (started waking her up after 1.5 hours of napping) and sure worked! Now she falls asleep quickly like she use to!! So, Lucy's new sleep schedule goes like this...wake up at 7:30am, 1st nap from 10-11:30am, 2nd nap from 2:30-4pm, bedtime at 8:00pm. And she is still sleeping on her stomach!

Her eating has not changed much from last month, although she's taking a little more solids at mealtimes. For breakfast at 7:30am, 6oz formula and 1 3.5oz container of fruit. For lunch at 12pm, 6oz formula and half of a 3.5oz container of veggies (mixed with oatmeal) and half of a 3.5 oz container of fruit. For her afternoon feeding at 4:00pm, she'll take 4-6oz of formula. For dinner at 7:00pm, she'll eat 1 3.5oz container of veggies (mixed with oatmeal) and 1 3.5oz container of fruit. After dinner and bath time, she'll take about 6oz of formula right before bed. We have introduced a lot more table foods (usually at dinner when we're eating), including chicken....she'll pretty much eat anything we give her! Lucy loves puffs, yogurt melts and mum mums for snacks. We're still working on the sippy cup...she really enjoys playing with it, but she really hasn't figured out how to drink from it yet. I think she recognizes the sign for "all done", but she hasn't done it on her own yet.

Lucy can pull up on things and she is so close to crawling!! She can turn herself around, get on all fours and slowly scoot backwards. We're working on the forward movement! If she really wants something that is out of her reach, she'll roll to girl! She is clapping, waving, pointing and starting to give (open-mouthed) kisses. She does not like daddy's whiskers...just like mommy! When she babbles/talks, she says a combination of da-da, ma-ma, la-la, na-na, ba-ba, ga-ga, pup-pup and i-da. When she gets really excited, she squeals and clenches her hands into fists! She laughs so hard when daddy is holding her and I chase them around the house....she gets the biggest kick out of it!

Lucy cut 3 front teeth this month! She has 5 teeth right now...2 bottom and 3 front. She is working on cutting another top tooth.

She is wearing size 3 diapers and mainly 12 months clothes.
