9 months

So tomorrow marks Emmy turning 9 months!!!  Wow where has the time gone.  We will be flying to Indiana to visit family for a week so I will be absent from the blogging world.  I have been keeping a journal of Emmy's milestones in a handwritten journal but figured since I have started to blog I would just journal her growth here.

Growth- Well we won't know your exact stats until we get back from vacation and go to your 9 month check-up, but I can say that you are growing like a weed.  You are wearing 12 month clothing and are in a size 3 diapers.  You are such a little chunky monkey and I just love it!

New Happenings-This month you have been learning to crawl, stand, and walk with assistance.  I really cannot believe how active you are.  You definitely keep your mommy and daddy busy :)  You are so independent and just want to go! You said 'dadda' and 'mama' this week and I was so proud :)  You love to babble away and don't have much volume control as your daddy would like to say...just like your mama!  You are too smart for your own good and are in to everything.  You love anything that is not yours, ie: mommy's cell phone, cups, magazines, remotes, etc.  You have so many toys but choose to go after anything you shouldn't have.  You love to wave bye-bye and love to look at yourself in the mirror...a little princess in training!
Likes-Your favorites are watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the mornings, your lambie wubanub, sleep sheep for nap time, mommy's cell phone to chew on, remote controls to change the channels, eating (you would prefer to eat whatever mommy and daddy are eating but can't yet), standing and trying to walk around, taking baths, and many more things I could list.  You really are at such a fun stage :)

Dislikes-You hate going to sleep, you fight it like a warrior. Getting into your car seat is also a struggle.  Once you are in you are fine but getting you in is another issue.  Having your diaper changes by mommy.  I am not sure why this is but with everyone else you are okay but love to throw a tantrum when I do it.  You dislike being sat down.  You always want to be in the mix of things and when you aren't you get very upset.
Eating and Sleeping- You love to eat!  You love trying new things and would honestly like to try everything if you could!  Your favorites are sweet potatoes, green beans, apples, teething biscuits, and lots more!  Sleeping is getting better once you finally fall asleep.  You generally go to bed between 7-8:00 every night and then wake up around 3:30-4:00 to breastfeed.  You like to wake up by 5:30-6:00 every morning just in time for mommy to get ready and go to work.  You don't really nap though.  If anything you are a power napper and sleep for 10-15 mins. and then are up ready to go! 
You are such a sweet baby and love to be around people.  We are so lucky to be your parents and enjoy watching you change and grow each month. I am excited to take you to Indiana this week to see family and to introduce your cuteness to everyone :)

We LOVE you lots and lots Mimi <3  Kisses, Mommy and Daddy
