9 Months

This last month was a big month. I feel like Fynn has grown by leaps and bounds in the last month. So here goes this month's update.

Dear bitty baby who isn't that bitty anymore,

Little girl, you are growing up right in front of my eyes. I love watching you discover and learn each and every day... but I wish it would just slow down! There are so many new things that you've done this month, here are just a few:

  • You're 28 inches long and 18lbs 10 ounces... which is just 10 ounces larger than you were 3 months ago... I'm blaming the slowdown in weight gain on your incessent crawling the last month or so... you're definitely getting in a good daily workout. 
  • You crawl! It was amazing. For weeks you did the inchworm across the floor. You'd pick up your butt and rock back and forth, but not get anywhere. Then one day I went to pick you up from daycare, and you were crawling around like you've been doing it for months. Since then you've just gotten better and better at it
  • The day after you figured out crawling, you also figured out how to pull yourself up on things. Now you can get up and stand using just about anything. Our legs, the couch, random toys. You name it, you use it to stand.

  • You can stand pretty well. You wobble all over the place, but you can stand for a minute or too usually before you lose your balance
  •  You've become really clingy lately. You love Mama and always want to be held by me. Which is adorable, snuggly, and a little obnoxious (sorry kid, but I'd really like to be able to pee without you either in my lap or clawing at my leg... just saying)
  • Still no teeth... maybe you will just never had teeth. You can be the only baby with dentures instead. 
  • You wave sometimes. It's hard to tell, but when we tell you to say "bye bye" you will often raise up your hand and move it around like you're trying to wave... it's just not quite a wave

  • Talk more. You make new sounds with vowels and multiple syllables
  • Love dog food... like you want to eat it... we spend a LOT of time redirecting you away from the dog bowl
    You make this face all the time, it kills me
  • Figured out how to open cabinets. Thanks a lot. Now we have to have those stupid locks on all the cabinets... which means I can't really open them either
  • You play with Zoey. As in actually interact with her. The two of you like to play tug of war over toys. It's hilarious because you two each pull on it and then when Zoey gets it and runs away, you crawl after her and take it back!

  • You do NOT like your jumper any more... any time we try to put you in it, you fight us and make it impossible for us to put you into it. 
  • You're sleeping so much better now. You go down easy at night and only get up once during the night. Sooo much better then when you were up 5+ times a night. 


  1. She is so cute! My baby does that half kind of wave thing, too! Stopping by from NE bloggers!

    By the way- I do a Mommy Mondays blog hop and would love for you to link up with us tomorrow! You can post about whatever you want about mommyhood/family/kids etc!

  2. Thanks for linking up to mommy mondays! Good luck with those cabinet hooks! They were SOO hard for us to install. We got them under the kitchen sink where the chemicals are and under one bathroom sink and that was it. Now I just spend a lot of time picking up tubberware from the floor and the occasional pot lid... But seriously that's easier than installing those stupid things :)


The best part of blogging is hearing from my readers, so share your thoughts and ideas... or just say "hi"!
