Slow down...you are growing too fast!
It is hard to believe that our little baby girl is now 9 months old.
This month has been the craziest in terms of her growth/developmental milestones.
At nine months old, she has two teeth in the front. (So far she has handled teething like a champ--a teeny bit of crying, but it really hasn't slowed her down.)
She can wave. She loves to wave at herself (or the baby) in the mirror. She also likes to wave at random people she encounters and inanimate objects.
She can go to a sitting up position from her belly.
She can drink out of a straw.
She has gone from an army crawl to a real crawl.
Because of her crawling...nothing is safe. She loves the dog and his water bowl. She is constantly on the move.
She can pull herself up using a little assistance.
She does nap....typically two short naps and one long nap during the day.
Sadly, she has been waking up about 2-3 times a night this month. We have been out of town for most of the month, so her sleep schedule has been off. She has been waking up in the middle of the night, she will sit up and then doesn't know how to lay back down. Then she starts crying. I usually go get her. I rock her and put her back to bed.
I really don't know what is the answer to her sleeping issues, but I am pretty exhausted. We may try the cry it out bit, but we are also suckers for her crying.
She is such a happy baby, we hate to have her cry. (Don't I sound like a first time mom?)
Although I am tired, we are so amazed by these changes we see in our baby girl each day.
Hard to believe in less than three months she will be a year old.
