9 Months

Adalyn turned 9 months old on August 9th. (20 days ago...I'm a bit late posting. oops) We were in Florida and I posted a couple pictures from the actual day in the Florida posts. When we got home we took a few more 9 month pictures in her normal poses.  Well, the normal poses were a bit of an effort since she barely sits still long enough to stay in the camera frame.  She's constantly on the move so half of the pictures I took were blurry! And she was not into sitting in the normal picture spots.  But we got some cute pictures (thanks to daddy helping).

Adalyn has 4 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth now!

Adalyn still wears sizes 6-12 month or 9-12 month clothes (depending on brand). She actually has a 0-3 skirt that she wore in her 9 month photo shoot with Jes! Her onesies are still 3-6 month.  She never wears shoes, but when I measured her for shoes for the fall, she is a size 2. And she's still in size 3 diapers.

Adalyn didn't have to get shots at her 9 month appointment but we did get her stats. She has stayed in the same percentiles as her previous appointments.
Height: 28 1/8 in. 50-75%
Weight: 17 lbs 3 oz 25%
Head: 16 1/4 in. <5%

Adalyn is such a great eater.  She has really figured out how to feed herself and is quite good at it! She loves Puffs. She hasn't tried meat yet, but she eats lots of different fruits and veggies! On our vacation, she tried non-homemade baby food for the first time.  I got a couple packets of organic/no-additives baby food to keep in the car and in the diaper bag in case we were somewhere where I couldn't thaw out her frozen homemade baby food.  We needed them a couple times so I was glad I had them and she loved them. I was worried that by her eating them that she wouldn't like her homemade stuff, but she went right back to eating them! She's pretty serious about eating and is up to eating two fruits and oatmeal with breakfast, two veggies for lunch and two veggies and a fruit for dinner!

She pulled up in her crib, so this past month we lowered her mattress.  She learned to crawl the day after she turned 9 months. She's pulling up on everything now!

She took her first trip to Florida, saw the ocean, met her extended family and had a very exciting month this past month!  She's so much fun and has such an infectious laugh. Every month I say this, but I love this age so much! Her little personality is showing so much now and we just can't get enough of her! Can we please stop time? :)
