(*all of the pictures from this post will have to come from my phone…I decided I couldn’t live longer than three weeks without my “nice” camera and n brought it to me, but I have no way to edit and upload the pics onto here until I am back home 🙁 )
I turned around and suddenly she is nine months old!! So begins the last stage of infancy…
Nine has meant:
-new teeth (upper two peeking through). They haven’t affected her sleep or demeanor too noticeably, but that may change
-pulling up, crawling up stairs, standing with just one arm to support, cruising. It is amazing to me how fast we are flying through these milestones. She is a determined little thing as she goes back to the outlets (or the plants, or the stairs), over and over and over and just smiles at me both on her way and when I scold her. She’s going to be our handful 🙂
-hair has gone wavy/curly this month and I just love it! Definitely brought on more with the humidity out here and also coming in pretty shade of ash blonde!
-on a mostly set schedule now and while still flexible, she doesn’t nap as well on the go anymore. Taking a short morning and long afternoon nap, nursing 4-5 times a day and eating solids about three times a day as well
-loooooves puffs! She can feed them to herself now which also allows me to eat sometimes too :)They also proved a wonderful distraction on the plane. As of late, she also got the hang of the squeeze pouches as well!
-still doesn’t like to be “tossed” up in the air or the swing. But she does love this CA sunshine!
(And who wouldn’t)
Bea, you have truly lived up to your name and been a bright spot in the midst of this dark time. Your never ending joy is inspiring and engaging. We loved you dearly,
-sweet mama k
