I love this kid so much. I think I am finally beginning to really understand what it means to be a mother. I wish my mom was alive so I could tell her this.
Here are Ada's 9 month "stats":
Age: Exactly 9 months.
Weight: 21 lbs 8 oz. and 28.5 inches
Size (diapers, onesies, etc.): Size 3 diapers and 12 month old clothes (some 9 mos still fit and some 12 mos. are already too small)
Eyes: A perfect meld of mine and Tim's- deep blue rim on the outside , like mine. Green is the majority of the iris with tiny brushstrokes of brown around the pupil, just like Tim's
Hair: It's coming....the bald spot is less prominent.
Sleeping: Fewer naps and very recently has started to wake and wonder where we are in the night. This is a hard phase.
Milestones: In position. Ready...Set...Crawl!
Words/sounds: She is still in the pterodactyl phase. We understand that babies who are exposed to multiple languages are slower to start towards talking but once they get going there is no stopping them.
What we are looking forward to: Crawling, finger foods, talking, walking...O my God!!
