Natalie: 9 Months!

DISCLAIMER: Natalie is actually 10 months old, I'm just now posting this because it took me forever to edit these photos now that Picnik is gone. I hope that PicMonkey gets their "collage" option soon, because it was very frustrating. And I have to turn around and do it again next week....JOY.

Dear Natalie,

You are now a BIG nine months old! Lots of exciting things happened this month that I can't wait to tell you about!

We celebrated your very first Easter this month, and you showed off you new skills, which include last months sitting up on your own, which you are now a PRO at! But we'll talk about the rest of those later.

You are down to a routine with your eating now. You have fruits and oatmeal mix for breakfast with a 6 oz bottle, one 8 oz bottle around 5 pm and veggies and an 8 oz bottle for dinner/bedtime. You are now using only fast nipples, because the medium ones started to frustrate you and you would suck so hard on them that you actually flattened them!

We added to the list of stage 2 foods:

Chicken Noodle
Chicken and Rice
Turkey and Sweet Potatoes
Turkey and Rice
Vegetable Chicken
Vegetable Beef
Sweet Potatoes and Corn
Garden Veggies
Mixed Veggies

Mixed Berries
Cherries and Apples
Strawberry Banana Apple
Pineapple and Banana and Mango
Blueberry and Apple
Banana Plum Grape
Pear Pineapple

So far no allergies! You really love the macaroni and cheese and of course your favorites are still sweet potatoes and peas. You also really love the mixed berries, and of course still anything with banana! And you really love to try to feed yourself, even though most of the time you grab the spoon, eat the food off of it and then just continue to chew on the spoon!

You are also doing something AMAZING! You are already holding your bottle all on your own! Momma kinda feels sad because she feels like you don't need her for much anymore!

You have been more active sleeping at night lately. I'm not sure if it's because you are teething or if it's because you've recently become more mobile and have been sitting (and standing) a whole bunch! You still sleep straight throught the night though, so Momma can't complain!

You are babbling alot more lately as well! You also laugh at yourself alot, and it's really cute! You also started making fun of Mama and Mawmaw when we were sick/coughing, and you would cough back at us! So far we think you have said:

Good Girl

You are still in between sizes, you can wear a wide variety depending on the brand. You can wear anything from 3 month to 6 month. Momma can't wait to dress you in a ton of sundresses this summer! We already bought you a bathing suit as well!

We are thinking about moving you up to size 2 diapers in the next week or so, because it seems like they just don't hold your stuff as well anymore and we think you need more room! (It feels wierd to talk about your poop!)

You LOVE bathtime! You have been very playful with everything lately, but you really love to splash!

Momma and Daddy really think that you are going to be walking any day now! You are starting to learn to walk assisted (on Easter you took your first assisted steps) and you really have no desire to crawl yet, so it will probably happen at the same time! And of course like I mentioned before you are a STELLAR sitter now! You can pretty much sit on your own without ANY help from us at all!

Those pictures above were from Easter! You had a blast with your cousins and going on your very first Easter Egg Hunt!

I can't wait to take pictures of you in the cute little sundresses we bought for you! I have a few more in mind that I haven't told Daddy about yet! hehehe =)

I hope this next month is just as exciting as this past month was! And that it goes by SLOWER!!

Momma and Daddy love you more than yesterday and less than tomorrow!
