June Marie :: 9 Months

Happy 9 months June Marie! Love are an absolute JOY. My heart could literally burst as I type this. What a privilege it is to be your momma!

Weight: 19 lbs 14oz (70%)
Height: 28.50" (82%)
Head Circumference: 45.25cms (84%)
Size 3 diapers
9-12 month clothes

Thank goodness for the tube, because June is back to sleeping through the night! She goes down for bed between 7:30/8pm and wakes up for the day between 7:30/8am. Sometimes she wakes up in the middle of the night looking for her paci (even though there are 3-4 paci's in her bed at all times), but she figures it out pretty quickly and goes right back to sleep. June transitioned to 2 1.5 hour naps (instead of 2 hour naps) a few days ago, so now she is typically napping from 10:30am-12pm and 2:30-4pm. She prefers sleeping on her stomach. I always put her down on her back, but she flips right over before I even have time to close the door to her room!

June is still on a 4 hour eating schedule. She typically takes a bottle at 8am, 12pm, 4pm and 7:30pm. She is taking less formula during the day since she is eating more solid foods. She usually eats about 4oz of formula at 8am, 12pm and 4pm and 8oz at bedtime. We started giving her table food at the beginning of the month and she is a HUGE fan. She definitely prefers table foods over baby foods. She'll eat just about anything we put in front of her! I still try and give her some baby food during each meal period, but it's not always successful. She's starting to get the hang of squeezies, so I'm hoping that will help. I've also started introducing sign language at meal times. We're working on "more" first. June just claps...but whatever! :)

Activity Time
June loves playing with Lucy, watching Lucy, listening for Lucy...pretty much anything Lucy is doing,  bath time, the bouncer, going on walks, swinging, being outside and chewing on anything she can get her mouth on! She has started getting a little frustrated when she can't reach something. She wants to move so badly, but she's no where close to all.

June's first tooth (bottom left) came through on 4/10/13 (the day after she turned 8 months). Her second tooth (bottom right) popped through about a week later. Teething has been a little rough, but she's been a trooper (thank goodness for Tylenol). She loves to clap and will start clapping when you say "clap." She will attempt to wave, but it looks more like a flapping wing. She will also reach out with her arms when she wants you to pick her up. 

June is still as easy going as ever, although I have noticed that she has started expressing her opinions a little more lately (especially if it's something she doesn't like)! She really is as happy as can be 90% of the time, which is pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Right now, she adapts well to change and hasn't struggled with separation anxiety yet. She's a little doll and such a joy to be around! 

Happy 9 Months Baby June! We love you more than words could ever express!
