9 month check up

Anna Grace had her 9 month check up about 2 weeks ago. We got to see our fav doctor ever.....Dr. Simmons! He makes our drive to Lowell so worth it!!! He always takes lots of time with us and makes us feel Oh so special!!:)

She had an animal cracker in her mouth....

and lovin' it!!!

LOVE this chubby face....

and her precious little smile;)


Head: 43.50 cm- 70th percentile

Height: 64.70 cm- 25th percentile

Wt: 17 lbs 13 oz - 60th percentile

She is my happy girl and has the sweetest disposition about her. Even people who meet her for the first time in the grocery store make comments to me like.....she just seems to be a very content little baby! They are exactly right too.....she really is!:)

She has 8 teeth......4 on top and 4 on bottom

She likes baby food okay but really prefers table food more!

She eats some of the lunches at daycare. The girls always text me each day before lunch to check with me about the menu. I am about to highlight the foods she can eat for now....that way it will make it easier for them at daycare;)

They tell me she LOVES her snacks....animal crakers, graham crackers, ritz crackers....IMAGINE that! She is her mother's child;)

She has always been a really easy going baby until bedtime where she would just fight it so bad. Well, Cody and I have been trying to break her out of this and we have come so far! As much as I would love to snuggle and rock her sound asleep.....she would prefer to do it herself!

So now, we always do her bedtime routine after she eats dinner each night. She knows after her bath.....she gets to nurse and bedtime is right around the corner. For about the past 2-3 weeks, either Cody or myself will just rock for a few minutes and lay her in bed. She may cry out a few seconds or not at all. Usually on daycare nights, she is exhausted. Sometimes, if she stays up too late or past her bedtime.....she fights her sleep more i have noticed so we try real hard to be consistent and stay on schedule if we can. It makes her more happier and our life much easier too! Her bedtime is anywhere from 7:45-8:15. She sleeps all night for the most part and wakes up around 7. She has been a great sleeper from the beginning.....thank goodness!

She wears Size 3 diapers and wears anywhere from 6-9 month clothes. She has some 12 month outfits as well. She has short legs which make it hard to find pants that are not too long. We sometimes just have to roll her pants up so they don't get in the way of her crawling and pulling up. Leggings seem to work best for her which I love anyway;)

She is crawling super fast everywhere and walking around our ottomon.....pulling up from sitting to standing and easing her way back to a sitting position with no problem. She even walks well behind this push toy of Reed's! It probably won't be long til she is WALKING......oh my!!!

Here she is sitting in big brother's chair like a big girl!;)

Our little red head;)
