{9 months}

9 months!  Holy cow!  She's officially been on the outside as long as she was in the inside.  CRAZY.  This girl is busy these days, let me tell you.  She is officially on-the-go, all the time.  She is so much fun right now!  And she's starting to look so grown up...FINALLY her bottom 2 teeth have cut through.  I was starting to wonder if she was ever going to get teeth.  They've just barely popped through the gums, so you can't see them much yet, but they're coming in!  We had a few rough days/nights because of it, but she is definitely on the upswing and {almost} back to her happy self!

This month included 2 celebrations ~ Mama's birthday, and Lilly's first Thanksgiving!  My birthday was pretty low-key this year {I'm officially old.}, but it was fun to spend the day with my girl.  Thanksgiving was a hit, probably her favorite holiday to date since it all centered around eating, and that's one of her favorite things to do these days. She eats just about anything and everything, and loves it!  In fact, she gets quite upset if you eat in front of her and don't offer her any. :)

Her little personality is really starting to come out, and she's interacting SO much now, I love it.  She plays peek-a-boo, does "touchdown" anytime the word is spoken, crawls everywhere, may or may not have said her first word {she says "hiiiiiiii" all the time, and at least half of the time says it to someone, but we haven't officially counted it as her first word yet...}, she's just an all around good time. I'm sure I'm just a typical mom here, but I feel like she is SO smart.  She is really starting to understand things, repeat things we do, and it just amazes me.  I love watching her learn. :)

Stats ~ 19lbs 3 oz (65th percentile)
             28 1/4" tall (75th percentile)
             17 1/2" head circumference {75th percentile)

I don't know if she's actually lighter than she was a month ago, or if it's just the difference in my scale at home and the scale at the doctor's office.  I wasn't sure they read it right when they said 19lbs 3oz, Matt and I both were expecting her to weigh more.  The doctor even said she looks chunkier than that (in the nicest way).  She is crazy active all day now, though, so she very well could be getting leaner.  Looks like she may be tall and skinny. :)

Size ~ mostly wearing 9 months, a few 6 month things still fit

Sleeping ~ we seem to have finally turned a corner in the sleep department, once we got past the teething nightmare.  That caused us several nights of a million wake ups, and a lot of snuggles.  I don't mind the snuggles, but I hate seeing my baby in pain. Luckily that only lasted a few nights, and since then we have slowly been getting better nights of sleep.  I hope this trend continues. :)

Eating ~
  she still eats breastmilk 5-6 times a day, eats dinner with us every night, and has a snack usually at Grandma's house.  I stopped keeping track of the new foods she tries, because at this point it's almost something new every day.  She eats what we eat for the most part, and I usually add in a fruit or veggie for her.  She loves veggie sticks for a snack, and I don't think she's tried a food she hasn't liked yet.  Some things she definitely favors over others (cheese, yogurt, bread, bacon, avocado), but she's tried everything we've given her and never turned anything away.  Atta girl!

Likes ~
 waving, saying "hiiiiii" (in the sweetest little high pitched voice), the remote, watching Daisy play ball, hearing various animal sounds (for some reason the monkey and dog really crack her up), reading books (Daddy reads to her every night before bed, and I often catch her when she's playing by herself "reading" - turning the pages and babbling to herself, pointing at the pictures), food, standing, socks (but not on her feet, she just likes to carry them around...), pointing, banging toys together, I could go on...

Dislikes ~
 diaper changes or changing clothes, the carseat, laying down on her back in general, not getting a bite if you are eating in front of her

Current Nicknames ~
 boog, boogie, Moe
