Where on earth have the past nine months gone? Its seriously flown by in a blink of an eye. You have nearly been alive the same amount of time you were cooking for seeing as you were two weeks overdue. It's only 3 months until your first birthday! You will be ONE! I am still trying to think of you as my little tiny baby, I know you are growing and it is fun to see but I would love to treasure those moments just one more time.
I think this month we have seen the most change in you. You are now a little person. You have your own personality and are such a little madam! I love watching you do something new, for example this month you figured out you can turn the TV on and off and on the LCD screen and as soon as it goes off you turn and look at me and giggle then turn it back on, then back off again so I can't watch anything - not that I have the time too! You have also figured out you can scream to the top of your lungs, which I didn't think was possible as your screech is so high pitched already! I honestly have no idea how a sound that high comes from someone so small! You love it when we play peek a boo and laugh so much! You can now say both mum and dad. You love to shake your head when your angry or don't want something and you throw everything we give you if you don't want it.
I'm not too sure how much you weight right now but my guess is around 20-21lbs as you don't really feel or look any heavier. But you are definitely average for your age. You are still in size 3-6 and some 6-9 month old clothes. 9-12 months are still big on you. But shoes wise you are in 9-12 and even those tend to be pretty small on you so I reckon we need the next size up. Your feet are big just like daddy's and we think you will tall when you are older. I just hope you're not as tall as daddy otherwise that will be strange!
Your hair is FINALLY growing yay! I can't wait for it to be a bit longer so I can put pretty hair clips in it and match them with outfits. I reckon by the time you turn one we will see much more hair...I hope anyways! Your eye colour is still blue so I think you will be a blue eyed girl and your hair colour is more of an auburn colour.
You have even more teeth popping through. You already had your bottom two and your top ones have been trying to get through for a while now. It looks like you have 4 on the top! I can clearly see and feel 3 of them through but one is lacking behind! You are going to look so funny with even more teeth. You are still drinking mummy's milk. 9 months on and we are still nursing. Which is such an achievement. I didn't think we'd manage this long but we have! I'd love to go ahead to a year but we will see how that goes. Luckily you have stopped biting now so you never know! You love your baby food now too, we have tried lots of different snacks and fruit and vegetables and it seems your favourite vegetable is carrots and fruit is strawberries! I really hope you're not fussy like I am when you're older.
You still LOVE bathtime and are no longer in your baby bath seat, we actually stopped using it a couple of months ago after you climbed out of it! So now we just fill the bath with a little bit of water as the first time we let you sit in it you face planted the bottom and drank lots of bubbles! We are hoping to take you swimming again soon as you haven't been since holiday when you were 6 months old so we need to get you back into it. You use to love it so I'm sure you'll be fine and it will be much more fun now you're older. We still haven't really got a routine as such well definitely not
I look forward to seeing what you get up to this next month. I'm sure you will be walking real soon as you can already stand by yourself and have taken a few un-aided steps. You also love pushing your activity table around the room and walking with it. You got to see snow for the first time this month and we're hoping to go out in it tomorrow as we now have a baby snow suit that fits you. I am already planning your first birthday and have a lot to do for it but I am so excited!
All my love,
