Nine Months











Size Diapers: Size Four. 

Size Clothes: She wears 6-12 and 12-18 months in leggings. The length fits perfectly but the waist is a little big.

Eyes: Still blue with a light hazel/yellowish around her pupil. I'm so happy we have a blue-eyed baby. Both my grandpas have blue eyes but none of us got blue eyes. Can't believe two people with hazel eyes (and genetics of course) FINALLY got a blue-eyed babe.

Hair: Brown with a hint of red..? I see it when she's in the sun. 

Sleeping: Same as last month | She's sleeping throughout the night. Yay! She'll go to bed anywhere between 7-9 p.m. and wake up around 7:00-8:30ish a.m. When she wakes up I make her a bottle, she plays for 30 minutes or so and is ready for her morning nap. She usually has around 3-4 naps a day. 

Eating: She's been drinking 7oz (Gerber Soothe) and eats Earth's Best organic oatmeal for breakfast with fruit added into the oatmeal. She loves apples, pears and bananas in her oatmeal. She's been eating Organic Beech-Nut baby food and seems to like most flavors. She tried steamed broccoli for the first time and loved it. 

Milestones: 
  • She has four teeth coming in at the top 
  • She pulls herself up on things.
  • She's crawling and scooting. She's not the best at it but she's getting the hang of it. I sometimes get worried that she's a little behind but I have to remind myself not to compare her with other babies. I honestly feel like she'll skip crawling and go straight to taking steps.
  • Says "mama" "dada" "baba"
  • She understands us when we say certain words. For example, when I say "bottle" she'll start whining and wanting her bottle.
  • She hardly wants to be held anymore. If you're standing up she's fine but as soon as you sit down, she'll try and scoot off your lap.
  • She's getting more spots of eczema all over her back, shoulders, arms and neck. We picked up a new shampoo/body wash and we limited bath time to every other day. We also try not to leave her in there too long, which is sad because she loves bath time. 
  • She's getting a lot better at picking her apple puffs up and other miscellaneous items up off the floor. She's so fast at it! 
  • Sometimes its hard for her to fall asleep for her nap and if we watch little baby bum videos, she'll just stay up even though she's exhausted; so we've been watching Fixer Upper (love that show) and she usually falls asleep quick.

Nicknames: We call her by her name.

Eight Months










Size Diapers: Size Three. 

Size Clothes: 6-9, 6-12 Pants 6-12 are getting small. Old Navy 12-18 month leggings fit perfect. 

Eyes: Still blue with a light hazel/yellowish around her pupil. 

Hair: Brown but I do see golden/light brown in the sun. 

Sleeping: Same as last month | She's sleeping throughout the night. Yay! She'll go to bed anywhere between 7-9 p.m. and wake up around 7:00-8:30ish a.m. When she wakes up I make her a bottle, she plays for 30 minutes or so, and is ready for her morning nap. She usually has around 3-4 naps a day. 

Eating: She's been drinking 7oz (Gerber Soothe) and eats Earth's Best organic oatmeal for breakfast. She's been eating Organic Beech-Nut. Her favorite is apple, raspberry & avocado mix. I do have to mix a little bit of apple sauce or pears in with her vegtables. She also loves fresh avocados with banana. One of her favorite lunch meals but I don't like to give it to her often because it constipates her.

Milestones: 

  • Two teeth coming in at the top
  • She loves to clap her hands and claps her hands when we say "GO BRONCOS!" 
  • Boy oh boy, does baby girl have a temper. 
  • She's starting to rock back and forth on her hands and knees. Hopefully she starts crawling soon! 
  • She says MAMA and BABA
  • Starting to give kisses. She brings her head close and makes you do the rest! haha. 
  • She's been hitting people in the face (not hard of course) but I've been saying "No, no" and she listens. Sometimes. haha Don't know why she does that. 

Nicknames: We call her by her name. Sounds so strange but I do call her "bubus" a lot. Don't know why.
