Nine Months

Miss Norah is Nine Months Old Today! She is so full of energy, but thankfully still taking two naps a day. Her crawling has really taken off and she no longer stays in a room with me which is really too bad. She crawls over, under, and around just about anything. Or pulls herself up to standing holding on to the furniture. She will walk a few steps holding on to things or all over the place if someone holds her hands.

The babbling baby talk is pretty constant. Recently her favorite has been DAdadadadadaddddddaaaaa, which George loves. She also makes some coughing monster sounds which I don't really like, since it sounds like coughing, but she thinks its very fun and does it a lot. My most favorite development has been the snuggling. She likes to lay her head on your chest or shoulder, mostly when she's tired or just randomly when you are holding her. I Love It.

Bedtime has gotten better. Daddy does baths mostly by himself now :D. Since he is gone all day it's one thing that they can routinely do together. She's been waking up once a night to nurse, but otherwise sleeping for 10ish hours. Sooooo much better!

She is getting so big. I had to sort and shuffle her clothes again. Things that I've had tucked away now fit and some outfits that I loved are too small. We switched her carseat about a week ago so no more infant seat! That day we also decided no more baby bathtub. Now she gets baths in the big tub. Who said she could grow?! George and I were both very suprised when we realized you hardly have to bend over when hold her her hands and walking around. Her wellchild check up is on Monday so I'll have her height/weight stats later.

She not a big breakfast eater, just some milk and cherrios!

I am seriously in awe of what a good mommy you are. You are so outstanding! I knew Georgie would be cute Daddy...I just didn't know how GOOD we was going to be. WOW!
I am just so proud of both of you.
I can't wait to see Miss Norah. I just can't believe that I feel like I missed out on so much of her 'triumphs' so sad...but so much fun to 'watch' online. :)
