Weight: We JUST got back from her 9 month check up and Isla is 17lbs and 5 oz.
Health: Low grade fevers here and there with her teething but baby Motrin seems to clear that up right away. Doctor says she is doing wonderful. We have a little case of cradle cap but we were given options to clear it up. I will let you know how that goes.
Social: Isla is loud! Very loud this month. She likes to sing, shout, scream and laugh just because she can. She has developed this shy and bashful side lately and it seems to be around men. She also has made strange with a few people but then is laughing with them a minute later. Isla is definitely a funny girl who knows that she’s funny and entertaining. She is cuddly, loving, smart and I have a feeling she may be a handful! Her personality is so big and she loves to be the center of attention and makes new friends whenever we are out.
Diet: We are still breastfeeding and solids are going well. Pretty much everything she tries she loves, especially the orange stuff: carrots, spegetti squash and sweet potato! I have been so nervous to give her pieces of food to chew but have started to give her banana, watermelon and cantaloupe. I really want to branch out with these foods and hopefully within the next couple months we will be totally done with purees. She is also finally figuring out her sippy cup and enjoying water. I also just recently read how great it is to introduce your little one to drinking out of a cup normally so we have been trying that too!
Clothes: We have been wearing 6-12 month clothing, 9 month Carter’s clothing and some 12 month pants and shirts. 12 month sleepers seem to be working better for us then some 9 months ones. She is growing so quickly!
Crying: We definitely hear cries more out of her. When she wants something you know it and when you take something away from her that she liked, you FOR SURE know it! She is very vocal about what she likes and doesn’t like. Crying is just her way of showing it.
Likes: Isla loves scooting around on the floor, dancing to “Runaway Baby” by Bruno Mars, dancing to the beat of any music, clapping things together, remotes and cellphones, reading, putting everything in her mouth, sitting up and jumping like a mad women in her excersaucer.
Dislikes: Taking things away from her and teething.
Milestones: Getting to where she needs to go even if it is done by rolling and pushing herself all over the place, sitting up by herself, getting up on all fours and chewing her food.
