Emma – 9 Months

My Baby!
I cannot believe how big you are getting! Where did my little baby girl go?
You learn so much every day, it’s so cute, but bittersweet, to see how much you are growing.

Mommy is so excited to spend all summer at home with you, I hope we have a lot of fun together and make awesome memories, which I know you won’t remember, but I’ll make sure to tell you all about it!

You still have no teeth haha! And you are very petite, but definitely growing and outgrowing some of your clothes.

It’s getting so hard to keep up with these monthly updates, since the older you are getting, not only is it harder to get you to sit still for pictures, it’s also harder to sit down and write about everything you’ve been up to.
But no worries, I promise to keep it up until you are 12 months old, which seems to be sooner than later. :'(

I love you!!!!

 Weight: Around 15 lbs
Height: Maybe about 26 in? You didn’t get measured this month.
Eye Color: I’ll say green.
Hair Color: Brown
Diaper Size: Size 2
Clothes Size: 6 Months
Sleep: This is exactly the same as last month… Sometimes you sleep through the night, and sometimes you don’t. Daddy is a sucker and can’t stand to hear you cry so he always brings you into bed with us. He falls right back to sleep, but I don’t because you want to be on top of me, and you want to nurse for comfort. I love it, but I’m not going to lie, sometimes when I’m really really tired and need to sleep because of work I get frustrated with the whole situation.. But then I just remind myself that this is temporary, that one day you won’t want to cuddle with me anymore.
Eating: 4oz of breast milk every 3-4 hours when Mommy is at work, then Mommy feeds you on demand when we’re together, in between you eat solids. You eat breakfast, then lunch, then dinner, with snacks, the rest is all breast milk. You eat a lot at grandma’s like ALL THE TIME!
Likes: Exploring, playing, watching your dogs.
Dislikes: Sleeping in your crib, green beans, hearing NO!
Milestones: You are pulling yourself up so much! You’re not ready to walk yet, but you are getting braver and braver.
Firsts: You went to baby gym and you loved it! So mommy took you a couple of times again so you could crawl around and play. You tried rice and beans and loved it, true Brazilian girl! You started eating banana oatmeal cereal. First time you slept for over 12 hours in a night, first time you tried Coca Cola, SUPER accidentally! You don’t really suck up from a straw, you usually just bite it, but that one time you actually sucked and got some Coke!
Personality: You are getting so much smarter every day, you’re like a sponge, and you pick things up quickly!

Emma’s Monthly Watercolor onesie is from Chicly Growing and can be purchased here.
It’s a whole 12 Month set. I like that they’re ironed on, and not stickers, so as she gets older she can’t rip them out! Love it!!!
