9 Months

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Age: 9 months

Birthday: August 7, 2012

Weight: 18 pounds even

Length: 25 1/4 inches

Sleep: Most nights it's 8:30 to 7 and she has officially moved into her crib in her own room! Total game changer!! 

My Bedtime: 8:30-8:45 depending on last nap time.

Favorite Toy: Wooden mixing spoon, lids to cashew jars, a stuffed Minnie Mouse her cousin gave her from Disney and she LOVES remotes, phones and swiping people's glasses off their face!

Clothes Size:  6-9 months, 9 months or 6-12 month if no 9 month size is available. 

Diaper Size: Size 3 in Pampers Swaddlers, the only diaper worth buying. Luvs are a close second for a cheaper option.

Milestones Reached:  There have been some big ones! First two teeth, kinda sorta crawls, pulls up to stand, mimics sounds, looks at people if you ask her where they are and waves hi.

Best Mood: Her personality is really improving most days. It's no secret that Caroline has not been the most pleasant of babies but she is starting to be a bit more enjoyable and spunky which has made mama much happier for sure!

Teeth: Got em :) Bottom two have both broken through and I don't think it'll be too terribly long before we're seeing those top two.

Words: Still no real words directed at anyone or anything just yet. She can make the ma, da, pa, etc sounds but doesn't put them together to call anyone or anything by name. I just can't wait to hear what her little voice will sound like saying Mama! Surely it's bound to be any day now, right? haha

Crawling: sort of a little bit but not really. Her little arms get to going and run away from her slow little legs and she just can't put them together yet. She's done a few steps a few times but usually ends up splayed out on her tummy ticked off about it. She's liable to just up and walk one day and skip this whole crawling thing haha.

This is 9 months in and 9 months out!

And a few outtakes from trying to take a good picture of my wiggle worm...


  1. OH my goodness your little one is just too cute. Noah is right behind her only 20 days younger. I cant believe what a difference going from 6-8 months has been for us. So many fun changes and new things!

  2. Thank you and this really is a fun stage. Their little personalities are starting to come out if time!

  3. She's so cute! My baby boy is 8 months and about the same size - everyone always tells me how tiny he is, so I'm glad to see a baby about the same size :) Adorable!

    1. That's so funny because my sister is always talking about how huge Caroline is compared to what her kids were! haha They're perfect no matter what size :)
