i seriously don't know why it's so hard for me to stay on track and update on time. nine months has come and gone and remi girl is growing like a weed and learning new things every day.
weight: 17 pounds (30th percentile)
height: 29 inches (80th percentile)
at nine months, remi loves:
-pulling up on anything and everything
-sitting on brooks' push bike
-playing chase with brooks
-taking a tub
-being in a room alone
-when she doesn't get her way
-when the food doesn't come fast enough
-getting her diaper changed
our little rem dizzle is so hilarious these days. she is spunky and full of personality. she already throws fits and tantrums like she's a three year old (heaven help us). this month, she has started making the funniest scrunch face on command. she scrunches her nose up, squints her eyes, and then blows out of her nose. it is the cutest thing and makes everyone laugh.
remi has really taking off with crawling. she actually bear crawls 80% of the time and she's quite fast. she has mastered pulling herself up on anything and everything and likes to walk along furniture. towards the end of the month she has started standing on her own and balancing really well. she will squat and stand back up and back down again. i'm thinking that she will probably start walking before she turns one.
she has started giving kisses, clapping, and waving bye-bye. she can say dada, eye, and baba. she likes to imitate sounds and she can be one loud little lady. she loves, loves, loves to eat anything that we are eating and she especially loves to sit in the high chair and eat food by herself. there has yet to be something that she doesn't like.
at nine months, remi is wearing size 3 diapers and clothes ranging from 3-12 months. her hair is starting to come in and i think she is going to be a blondie like her brother. i have tried really hard this month to get her to take only two naps and it's going okay. she generally naps a total of 2.5-3 hours total a day and then she sleeps about 11 hours at night.
