Nine Months

These months keep getting shorter!  Bianca at nine months feels like such a milestone.  For one, she "talks" all the time.  In the last two weeks she went from saying a couple words on repeat to saying many different things.  She also likes to sing which is pretty much the cutest thing ever.  She's very vocal which is something she gets from me.  Let's hope that's a good thing!

She's been crawling for a little while now but keeps getting more mobile everyday.  She can get to the other side of the house in a few seconds, she's freaked me out a few times!  She can also pull herself up (not so new) but find her way down without falling.  She can also "walk" when either hanging onto our hands or clinging to a couch or table.  I can tell she's really trying to get walking, I think it won't be too long before she masters it.  I am very scared for that day!

I am no longer scared for her low weight.  Her appointment is today, but last we checked she was almost 17 pounds.  She's really chunkered up!  Any food that I put in front of her is eaten, she is not picky at all.  In addition to the pureed food I make her, she now eats little pieces of things I eat as well.  She loves bread, turkey, cheese, watermelon, potatoes, and beans.  Like I said, I have yet to give her something she doesn't like.  I'm still breastfeeding pretty frequently.  I haven't lost any production at all which is such a blessing.  If I had to give her formula I wouldn't have an issue with it, but I'm pretty proud to say she's never needed it.  I think I'm going to breastfeed until she's a year old.  I'm not looking forward to the weaning process though...

Sleeping is still an issue.  She's not even close to sleeping though the night!  She does fall asleep in her crib, which gives me a few hours alone with Kevin and a few hours without her in bed.  But she wakes at least twice to feed which means she wakes up in my bed every morning.  If I really wanted to sleep train I think I could get her off her late night feedings.  Let's be honest though, I absolutely love the bonding experience we have when we sleep together.

I kind of want to freeze this period of time with her.  She's so aware of her surroundings and she's somewhat independent but she's also very attached to me.  Like the last nine months, I know the time will fly but I'm doing my best to enjoy every little moment.  I know I'm going to miss her being this small!

  5. Ah, she's growing so fast! It was so hard to get Asa to stop nursing at night, but having him sleep through the night is such a blessing for my sanity, haha! And really, it only takes a few days of slowly pushing the routine nursings back by fifteen or thirty minutes, and then they just don't wake for the nightly feeding. I do miss the bonding times, though; Asa nurses less and less now, and I'm pretty sure he'll have self-weaned by the time he's a year old.
    B is growing into such a doll! I love reading these posts on her progress.
