Everything Emily: 9 Months

Size: Emily is now wearing 12 month clothing! Crazy! She's still in size 3 diapers.

Sleep: Emily usually goes to sleep around 8:00 pm and stirs every few hours but doesn't fully wake up (just enough to let me know she wants to "nurse" for a few seconds- basically I am her pacifier because she doesn't take one) until anywhere between 5:30 am (ugh) and 8:00 am. She takes two 2 hr. naps on a good day but I think she might be shifting into one nap a day.

Eating: Breastfeeding, finger foods, baby puree, cream of wheat, puffs. Still doesn't drink much from a bottle or cup.

Playtime: Emily loves to crawl around and get into things she knows she isn't supposed to (cords, dog bowls, etc.). She also likes books, walks, swings, bouncy balls, getting into Mommy's purse, sitting in laundry baskets, getting pushed/pulled around in laundry baskets, and crawling through the activity seat instead of sitting in it.

Learning: Emily is a pro at crawling now and she is quick too! She is also learning to express herself by saying "ma ma ma ma" or mommy and "da da da da da" for daddy. She says "do do do" for dog, "num num num" when she is eating, "yayayaya" for when she is having fun. Her daddy taught her to do a raspberry and she also learned to smack her lips. She does a growl type noise when she is frustrated and wants something like more food. Another big thing she learned to do is pull herself up and stands on her own! She pulls up on everything.

In summary: Emily has changed a lot this month! She has two teeth now, grew into bigger clothes, she sits up (now we can put her in shopping carts and high chairs at restaurants), crawls, bounces in her jumperoo, pulls herself up, talks nonstop, eats a lot of finger foods herself, and more!
