Well, I’m posting this a few weeks late… but our girl is 9 months old! I can’t believe it. 9 months feels like such a milestone. I spent 9 months growing this kid and now she’s spent 9 months on this Earth. Weird? Maybe. Crazy? Definitely!
Blaire is still babbling all the time. She said “mom” for the first time a few weeks ago. Every time she says it, it melts my heart. She also says “mama” and I SWEAR she has said “dog” and “kitty”. Lol. She still says “dad” “dada” “daddy” “hi” “hey” and “yeah”. She still just has her bottom two teeth, but is working on some more. She has been teething like crazy this past week. She LOVES to eat. She’s started getting really angry when someone else is eating and she’s not. Especially if you’re eating something with a spoon. She just assumes food on a spoon is meant for her, I guess. So far, her favorites include pizza, mashed potatoes, cucumbers, egg (yolks), cottage cheese and most fruit. (Still not a banana lover, unless it’s mixed with something else.)
She’s always on the go… Crawling and pulling herself up on to anything and everything. The poor animals are always having to watch their backs because she loves to pull their hair and try to cuddle with them. I will also note that it’s now terribly hard to get a non-blurry photo of her. I wish I could say she was sleeping through the night. Between her cold, her teething and her growth spurt she’s still up at least twice per night. On nights when her congestion or teething are really bothering her she’ll be up for hours at a time. (Insert zombie emoji here.) It’s rough! But it really makes you wonder how you did it during those newborn months. In the past few weeks she’s been sleeping on her side and stomach a lot, which I know I’ve mentioned before. But it’s just so cute! It makes her seem so grown up.
Blaire’s personality is even sweeter than I ever could have imagined. She lights up anytime she sees Jason or I and it just melts my heart every, single time. She has started giving slobbery kisses when you ask her for a kiss and it is obviously one of my favorite things. She brings me more joy than I ever thought possible. Every time I look at her little face and she smiles back at me I know that I was meant to be her mom.
Do you remember your little one at this age? Which age has been your favorite? I’d love to know! Have a great week! xo
