9 Months Old
Harper is really becoming her own little person and everyday her personality comes through more and more.
Weight: 19.4 lbs (70th Percent)
Length: 28.3 inches (80th percent)
Diaper Size: 4
Clothes: 12 months mostly
Food: Harper is an eater!! She loves sitting in her chair and eating. We have moved to more table foods and she loves items like raspberries, veggies, shredded cheese, cottage cheese, turkey, eggs etc. She always wants to try what we are eating! She typically has cereal after her first bottle in the morning, eats some kind of stage 3 baby food when she wakes up and then again at 5ish!
Sleeping: Harper takes to napes a day. Usually the first one about 2.5 hours after she wakes up. Around 3 she goes down for her afternoon nap and sleep till 5 and usually dad is home so she gets very excited when he gets her out of her crib. Concerning her sleeping she has learned a couple of new tricks. She will through her pacis over her crib. The other day I pulled her crib out from the wall and found 5 pacis behind there! I wondered where all those pacis were going to!!!! Harper also now stands up in her crib on the end of her crib that is nearest the door and will watch us walk and then starting hooting and hollering! She is a smart little girl!
Some of Harper's favorites:
-SWIMMING!!! She loves when we go to the pool or if we fill up her own little pool in the backyard!
-Playing in the laundry basket. who needs expensive toys to play with when you can sit in the laundry basket while mom folds away all the clothes.
-Kitchen items: When I am out in the kitchen cooking Harper loves to be given some measuring cups and a pot and she makes her own little tune to music
HARPER HAS A TOOTH! On her bottom front gum it emerged almost 2 weeks ago. I was so glad ot see it had arrived because she had been working on it for so long!
Harper isn't just crawling backwards anymore! She is on the go and it has changed the game around the house! We have to watch her alot closer!
We love this sweet girl very much and are blessed with her everyday!
