9 Months

Ok, so I never posted anything when Jillian turned 8 months so I'm playing catch up now and feeling guilty as I write.

Here is what Jillian has been up to the past two months:
-Can say "mama" and "dada."  She will even repeat it after us if she is in a good mood.
-Rolls EVERWHERE!  She has started pulling up so she is on her knees but not on her feet yet.  She gets on her knees like she is going to crawl yet but still not moving her hands and knees at the same time to make it happen.
-Had her first ear infection this month. :(
-The week after Christmas she got her top two front teeth.  We were at Meemie & Papa's house and she was out of sorts half the time.
-Loves to be sung to.  Loves any toys that make music.
-Still likes her paci when she goes to sleep or is upset.
-Has four bottles a day and 2-3 "meals."  Favorite baby foods are peas, carrots, blueberries, pears, corn/sweet potatoes.  She has also tried a few finger foods like peas, corn, carrots, apples, and bananas.  She doesn't act crazy about any of them but definitely likes feeding herself.
-Likes to feed herself puffs but her favorite are mum-mums.  She also LOVES to chew on/sip water from her sippy cup.  She can also sip water from a straw.
-Sleeps good at night and at nap time.  We usually put her down awake with her mobile on and she goes right to sleep.  In the last couple of weeks, she has started sitting up and playing in her crib during nap time.  Sadly, she ususally falls asleep propped up on her bumper and then wakes up earlier and upset.
-Wears size 4 diapers, size 3 shoes, and mostly 12 month clothes.

Our little girl is growing up!

Height: 29 3/4 inches - 98%
Weight: 19 lbs. 6 oz. - 65%

Isn't this a fun age? We are enjoying all of Seth's new tricks, too. He even has a word for Ian! "Bwa-buh!" for cute!
