While we were gone, Avery turned 9 months old! Usually I take her photos on that day, but since we were gone I waited until we got home.
Yesterday Avery had her 9 month doctors appointment. She didn't get any shots, but boy was she a beast! She screamed for most of the appointment---the good news is that the doctor said she's developmentally ahead-he doesn't expect that behavior until they're one years old! So it'll be interesting to see how she does at that appointment! Yikes! She is currently 28.5" long and weighs 16lbs 13.5oz. so she's tall and thin! Everything with her looks great which is good!
She's still eating 2 meals a day-lunch and dinner. She has started some finger foods-Cheerios, puffs, pieces of waffle and toast, American cheese. She tried squash, cauliflower (which she loves!), kiwi, and some meat (mixed jar food).
She is crawling in full force these days and gets around very well! She has pulled up to her knees and standing a few times, but doesn't do it on a regular basis yet. She babbles away saying "dadada", "nanana", "mamama". She has started waving "bye bye" and giving kisses this month as well. She is also becoming impossible to change-clothes and diapers are a chore now! She is such a wiggle worm and wants nothing to do with lying down. It makes it a challenge that's for sure!
Her sleeping is getting better. She still naps twice a day and has been doing better at night. If she wakes up to nurse, it's only once around 4-5am. She has a good number of nights that she sleeps through without waking or wakes up then puts herself back to sleep. Hopefully that continues!
Here are her 9month shots. Again she didn't want to sit still!
Pulled the ears off of her head:
Then she found the sticker on her:
The rest are my favorites that I took....
The look on her face cracks me up!
