9 Months

I can't believe it's been another crazy month in Sora's life! In the past month, she's been to her first two weddings, she's been to her first pumpkin patch, she's played with her cousin Dylan in the park, and played at a baby cafe!

Sora had her first shot-free visit at the doctor's office in a while! It was great, until I got there and she decided that she needed to eat instead of be poked by the doctor. Sora weighed 17 lbs 7 oz (although Kyle and I think she weighs more), in the 25th percentile, and was 27.5 inches long, in the 50th percentile. Everything's going well and the doctor gave us the go-ahead for more finger foods and not to worry about her party-girl late night ways (although since we stopped worrying, she's gone to bed before 8:00 three nights in a row!).

She is currently:
  • pulling herself up on anything she can find. She loves the bookcase and can cruise along it and the couch. She also pulls up on people's legs.
  • is saying "dadadadada" a lot. Maybe this means she will start saying "dada" soon?
  • is eating anything she can get into her mouth! We just started giving her puffed rice cereal, and when she can get her pincer grasp right (which she is still working on), she gets rewarded by actually eating a piece! A lot end up on the floor though. She does like mangos now, which she didn't like last month, and has been eating chicken and turkey as well.
  • crawling super fast! She gets side tracked easily, so she usually doesn't go very far. But she's started following us when we leave the room.
  • is wearing 9-12 mo. clothing, and some 6-12 mo. clothing.
  • still without any teeth.
  • still experiencing separation anxiety. This is significantly worse when she's tired and only wants mom. Although it's nice to be needed, I'm looking forward to the day when she outgrows this.
  • still waking up 3-5 times a night and taking 2 naps per day. We've decided to make sure she doesn't nap after 4:00 in hopes that she'll go to bed for the night at a decent time (and so far, for 3 days, it's worked).
