Blaire is 9 months

  • Date: November 17th, 2017
  • Height: 27 inches
  • Weight: 16 lbs 15oz
  • Sleeping Pattern: She’s had a cold during the last week of this month, but before then she did 4 straight nights of great sleep! With the cold, she wakes 1-2 times where she is in bed from 7:30pm-9am. She only takes one nap (usually 1-3 hours).
  • Eating Habits: We haven’t added as many foods this month because she had another reaction to strawberries and cinnamon. The ones we did add successfully were yogurt, cauliflower, peanut butter and raspberries. We also go the okay to feed her soft table foods. Yay! Other than that, she’s breastfed and has one 4-8 oz bottle to top her off at night.
  • Development: Well, I wouldn’t doubt that she will be walking soon. She’s a speed crawler (especially to the dog food) and she is easily pulling up and walking while holding to furniture or walls. I even saw her make a standing transition from the bath tub to the toilet the other day! She’s getting her top four teeth at the same time which is cause for lots of clinginess and whining.
  • Mischief: She always prefers playing with her brother’s toys (and it drives them crazy). She just wants everything they have.
  • Cuteness: She gets so excited when we play pick-a-boo or when we chase her brothers around the room. She has also developed an amazing cheese-face (see photos above).
  • Talking: She finally says “mama” frequently. She also has “dada”, “nana” and “baba”.
  • Favorites: She’s still loving her pacifier and any toy that is not a baby toy. She’d rather play with the boy’s trains or books than any rattle or chew toy.
  • Firsts: It’s been a rough month of sleep thanks to three of the four top teeth coming in! The two middle came through first and her top right came in right after. I see the top left coming in and I bet it’ll be in next month!
  • Concerns: This girl isn’t a big fan of teething or having a cold. Thankfully both are short lived and hopefully we can resume some sense of normality soon!
  • A Day in the Life: This month, Blaire goes to bed around 7-7:30pm. She gets a bath and is then nursed to sleep and wakes up 1-2 times throughout the night until 7am. During the day she takes 1-2 naps. Towards the end of the month, she’s doing 2-3 hour naps!

P.S. Blaire had her 9 month check up a few days after turning 9 months and we got the a-okay to begin feeding her soft foods that we were eating. Since then, we are starting to blend whatever we’re eating up and letting her to try them.
