Nine Months Old

My youngest, Lydia, turned nine months old today. What a ride it has been with her so far. Her curiosity gets her into everything. She’s a quick crawler and keeps everyone in the family on their toes. She’s getting her top two teeth in currently and doing fairly well with it. She loves eating peaches, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and anything on my plate! Her favorite music is Pancake Manor, Parry Grip, and Wintergatan.

Her favorite teether is the Safety 1st featuring Mombella Ellie Elephant Teether. She loves looking out the back window and chatting away at the chickens. She’s been growing in bounds and leaps already wearing 12 months clothes. We’ll have accurate weight and height later next week after she visits her pediatrician.

Words she says are Mama, Dada, Bawk Bawk (can you tell she likes the chickens?), bye- bye, uh oh, and yay. She enjoys playing peek-a-boo, if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands… Favorite book is Where’s Babies Belly Button and Peek-A-Who.

Lydia can stand without holding onto something but only briefly. She’ll get there in her own time and we aren’t rushing it!
