Lainey 9 Months

Size: You weigh 17 lbs. 4 oz. (35%), you are 27 in. tall (27%), and head is 42.5 cm. (16%). But you have been 27 in. tall since you were 7 months old. Hmm, I wonder if they measured you correctly at past appointments?

Likes: Cambry is still your favorite to watch. You like to grab hair and earrings. Well anything really. You like to do v-ups, as we call them. It is this abdominal exercise you do where you lift your legs off the ground while lifting the upper part of your body and arms. I think you are wanting to go from laying to sitting but you aren't sure how so you just hold this crunch position. At this rate you will have a 6 pack soon. You like baths and your legs will kick non stop. You like the ipad but I think you just want to eat it more than watch it. 

Dislikes: You still don't like tummy time or getting dressed. You are also VERY dramatic when you get hungry. You can cry LOUD. 

Working on: You can now roll over from tummy to back. Your sitting has improved. If you are being still and focused on a toy you can sit for a couple minutes, but you still sometimes topple over quickly if you try to move around a lot.

Sleeping: I must say, you are the easiest baby to put to sleep...most of the time. I'm sure this won't always be the case, but you are usually so good about going down for nap or bed. We put you in your sleep sack, give you your paci, and most of the time you just go right to sleep. So thankful for this! You take 2-3 naps a day. If your naps are both long you will probably just take 2, but if they get cut short you will take a 3rd cat nap. You go to bed between 7:30 and 8:00. You usually wake up for a bottle around 5am and then go back to sleep until about 7am. You wake up usually once needing a paci, but there have been a couple times lately where you have not woken up at all until your early morning feeding. 
Update: I drafted this a few days ago but for the past several days you have not needed an early morning feeding. One night you slept completely through the night until around 7 or so, and a couple of nights you have woken up around 4, I gave you the paci, then went back to sleep until your normal wake up time. Maybe this means we are done with night feedings :)

Eating: You take a bottle about every 3 hours and eat a little baby food once or twice a day. You like most fruits and vegetable purees. One of your bottom teeth has popped through and I think I can see the other just below the surface. You still have reflux issues, but after seeing a couple of doctors this past week we have increased your dosage of medicine. I am hoping it starts to help you feel better.

We love you tons Lainey bear! I love your chubby little cheeks, your chin dimple, your long lashes, and your crazy kicking legs. Happy 9 months sweet girl!

It looks like Lainey has bows in about half of these pictures...not sure which way she is trending but I love that baby girl pulls them out (occasionally). This is of course because my baby girl pulls them out every time!
