I’m writing this up a day late because it has been a BUSY week at the house. Last night was the 2nd surprise birthday party of the week for friends of ours, and you have been such a rockstar with these events. Granted you weren’t too psyched about the kazoos and “Surprise!” being yelled, but once you got over your shock and crawled around on the grass with your buddy Liam for a bit, you were all better.
This week the funniest new development in your life is your fake cough.
The double cough means we are definitely not paying attention to you fast enough. It’s pretty great, except for at 2 in the morning.
We also went to the peds doc this week for your 9 month well child check this week. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?! You continue to grow by leaps and bounds. Your head is in the 99% percentile now (wow! you started at 31%) and you are 29″ long, which keeps you in the 90s (93%). Your weight has always been in the 60s, but at this appointment you were up to 20#3oz, which jumped you into the 81% percentile. I think Baby Led Weaning agrees with you. 🙂
You are getting faster and faster every day, little girl. Your favorite piece of furniture to pull up on is a rickety old side table that your uncle Ben built in jr. high. We have since took it down, because you kept pulling it over onto yourself! You also still head straight for the dog bowl, the back steps, the iPad charger cord…you name it, if you’re not supposed to touch it, you go for it. You’re a troublemaker like your Daddy already!
This week was full of fun activities for you – from going to your first rodeo the to multiple BBQs – and it was another great week with you in our lives!
I love you so much,
