Our little nugget is 9 months old!
Here’s a little look into Brynn at 9 months old:
GROWTH: Brynn had her 9 month check-up yesterday. And as expected, she is still a shrimp. Like, really a shrimp. She’s only 25 inches in height, which is the first percentile. And she’s 14.0 lbs, which is off the charts. She was the first one in our family to catch the awful stomach bug going around, and spent all day Friday vomiting. Her pediatrician says she could have lost up to a pound with that virus, so she’s choosing not to be too concerned on her weight. But wow, so small!
SLEEP: Still doing well with nighttime sleep! Brynn’s been either sleeping all night or waking once. The one time is typically between 5-7, and if she sleeps all night its around 7-7. On the weekends, I put her back down and she’ll usually sleep until after 8 which allows us all to sleep in a little! For naps, she’s napping between 0-30 minutes a day when at school. But on the weekends, she’ll nap 2-3 hours! Girl just likes her naps to be dark and quiet.
MOVEMENT: We’ve got a fast army crawler now! Still no interest in knee crawling, but she can suddenly fly across the room with an army crawl. She tries to pull up from laying on her stomach and is getting close to being able to do so. Brynn’s also fascinated with the edge of everything. She peers off of the edge of the stairs, her chair, or anything else. We have to keep a super close eye on her. I’ve been debating putting a gate at the top of the stairs (we have one at the bottom), but for now she’s never on her own upstairs so it isn’t a problem. We’ll see!
EATING: We’re holding steady at five bottles/boobs per day. She’s getting four ounce bottles when I’m not around, and nursing for around 15-20 minutes with me. As for food, she’s getting as much as she wants and at this point we’re letting her eat most table foods. Her favorites are meatballs, lasagna, rice, and scrambled eggs. But really she likes anything that she can eat with her hands!
DAYCARE: Daycare is still going great. She has her little crew of babies her age and its so cute when they all sit around and play together. Love this age when they can sit there and play before are mobile enough to steal each others toys.
