9 months

Miss me? I have been gone for a while, but I am back. Adam is now studying to take his LAST CPA exam. He passed his third of four in the fall and then took a little break during the holidays.

I can hardly believe that my little baby is now 9 months old. In just a few short months we will be having a birthday party.

Eat: Lilian nurses every morning, before and after every nap, before bedtime, and then maybe twice during the night. She loves eating solids now. She eats small pieces of fruit and veggies. Most recently we have added full fat yogurt and bits of cheese. She sits in her high chair and feeds herself during all our meals. It is fun watching her eat.... It is not so fun cleaning her mess. :)

Sleep: Lilian wakes (typically) between 7 and 8 then takes a nap at 9:30-10:30, 12:30-2:30, and 4:30-5:30. She usually goes to bed around 8. My big girl sleeps in her crib every night now... Well until she wakes up and Adam brings her to me in bed where she spends the rest of the night (last night she stayed in her crib till 3:30).

Size: Right now she is wearing 12 and 18 month clothes. (she is wearing an 18 month target brand outfit in above pic)

Stats: She weighs right at 20 lbs

Likes: Getting into the cabinets, unrolling toilet paper, playing with her sister, assisted walking, and jumping on the bed (assisted).

Dislikes: diaper changes, getting dressed, when her sister is upset, and having to sleep (she thinks being awake is way more fun).

Firsts: Lilian celebrated her first Christmas. She loved everything about it except Santa. She has gotten good at cruising along the furniture and toys and pushing her walker around. Her biggest new thing is talking. She has started saying mama and dada to the correct people. The only other unprompted things she has said are hi, dog, and monkey (she likes curious George). This past week she started repeating words that we were trying to teach her done, pear, peach, Emma, Nonnie, Babu, Pampam, fish... She is really good at mimicking words. I am curious to see which of the words she will say on her own next.
