Miller Kate || 9 months

Dear Miller Kate,

You are now 9 months old.  9 months now I've had the honor and privilege to be your mommy.  9 months now that I've spent most every single day with you.  I didn't have this same opportunity with your brothers and it is not something I take for granted.

You are still pure joy.  So happy and content 99% of the time.  You only fuss when you are hungry and really tired.  I can't comment enough about how content and easy you are!

You are still a great eater.  You still nurse 4-5 times a day and are eating 3 meals of baby food.  Still mostly pureed foods but we are starting to give you some soft table foods and letting you feed yourself and you love that.  You are also starting to figure out how to drink some water from your sippy cup.

You are still a great sleeper!  You take two naps a day - morning and afternoon - usually between 1.5-2 hours each.  You typically go to bed between 6:30-7 and sleep till about 6am. I rock you to sleep most nights but just lay you down for your naps and you just roll over and go to sleep.  You prefer sleeping on your tummy and your side.

You are wearing size 4 diapers and mostly 12 month clothes. We had your 9 month check up and below are your stats:

Weight: 18 lbs 14 oz.
Height: 26.75 inches
HC: 17.75 inches

You aren't crawling or even going up on all fours, so I'm totally enjoying just being able to sit you down and you staying put.  You love to sit and play with toys and you still like to play in your walker and exercauser some too.  You love to be outside and swing. You have 2 bottom teeth.  You are jibber jabbering more and more but still only saying dada.  You love to clap and play patty cake. You love your brothers and they make you laugh the most.  You still love sucking your thumb. 

We cannot get enough of you!  You are perfect! We all love you so, so much!
