{9 months}

Ok hold on a sec - I am pretty sure I JUST posted 8 months?! Where the heck did this month go?
Delainey thought the same thing as she did not want her photo taken for this month! Thankfully Justin was home and he got her to smile a few times as I was getting a whole lot of 'heck no Mom'!
14lbs 13 oz
At her 9 month check up our doctor with 100% happy with her. She is a wee thing but going up on her charts which is all that matters and healthy as can be.
28 inches
She is sleeping great at night. Goes to bed between 7-8pm and sleeps until 6-7am.
She is starting to have a longer morning nap (sometimes) - if she does she will only have 1 morning nap and then a short afternoon nap.
She is a great eater! Eats lots and isn't picky right now at all. She is eating breakfast, lunch and dinner and nursing in between all of those. We do a mixture of purees, mashed and small bites of food. She is getting much better at putting small bits in her mouth and loves to eat off her tray, make a mess and share with Cruz. She also loves water and drinking from her cup with a straw.
{diaper size}
Size 2
{new foods eaten since last month}
cottage cheese
greek yogurt
tastes of ice cream!
Plum Organics food pouches when we are on the go - she LOVES these!
Such a mix! Still in some 3-6 month dresses and tees. But 9 month jammies and pants mainly. Most of he closet is 6-9 months.
{hair color}
Medium blond

{eye color}
Very blue
[yarn does not taste so good!]

Standing & Climbing on everything (walls included)
Climbing the stairs
The dishwasher
The pantry being left open so she can play with the pop cans
Being outside
Cruz and Cruz's toys & water bowl
Being chased
Making a mess with her toys and diapers
Diaper changes - in her mind this is pure torture.
Followed closely by putting pants on
And then by having her face wiped - it's tough being a Delainey
Getting told no - pout central
[I will take care of this sticker Mom!!]

So patient. Can't say that enough. We are very lucky but I think labs are just awesome with kids.
{what's new}
She's fast. All over the place and before you know it she is gone or found you in the bathroom.
Climbs the stairs
Plays in a squat position
Stands for a few seconds not holding on to anything
Well Miss Delainey you are growing up too fast for your own good but we love each and every day with you. You are so funny and it's like you know exactly what we are saying already. We love your constant chatter and silliness. Your smiles and giggles make the fussy monkey moments so worth it. We love that you just go with the flow with whatever we are doing. You are such a perfect addition to our family - we could not be luckier or love you more!

I cannot get over the pigtails! I love them. So adorable.
I think tiny is perfect :) A and her are so similar in size for their ages, I bet A is under 15lbs for sure still and obviously shorter.
Awesome job standing D!
I cannot wait to see you guys this week, D can maybe show A how to crawl ;)
