9 months

I can't believe Eva is 9 months old today! Now that she's 9 months, I'm faced with the reality that she'll be turning 1 before you know it!

Yesterday we went to the doctor - it was actually for a sick visit. Since she has an upper respiratory infection, we'll have to go back in a couple weeks for her 9 month check-up and shots :( But we did get some measurements of her today:

Head: 18.5"
Length: 28.5"
Weight: 24 lbs 4 oz

I had a feeling she was about 25 lbs, because it's definitely getting harder to lug her around! On another note, the physician assistant was so surprised that she was there for a sick visit because baby girl was all smiles. Kind of like this:

Here's what Eva has been up to this month:
  • Can stand and hold herself up, like on the coffee table or her play pen
  • Babbles ALL.THE.TIME. I have no clue what she's saying, but I'm certain that once she learns real words she will be a motormouth!
  • Has finally 'grasped' the pincer grasp (picking up objects with index finger and thumb)
  • Is actually chewing on food, so momma is trying new stuff out all the time
  • Eats 3 meals a day and at least one snack. She's also nursing more frequently these days, so it's either for comfort due to being sick, or someone is going through a growth spurt!
  • Does NOT crawl. She rolls and scoots to get where she wants to go.
This is such a fun age, and I'm loving it. I'm so thankful to God for this time to stay home with my boo and see her learn new things everyday. Wonder what next month will have in store for us...
