All 9 month clothing. Most bottoms are either getting to short in length, or too snug if they are shorts (girlfriend has some junk in the trunk ;) ). Size 3 diapers
The last week or so, she has been working on a top tooth. Man, this thing is hurting her. She is either fussy or super clingy. We got out the teething gel and tylenol for this one. Hopefully it comes in soon. Other than that, still dealing with the eczema. Although, we've noticed a huge improvement this month. Hopefully this is a sign it is going away for good!
Charlie started a spoon/puree strike this month. She only wants to feed herself. She has loved about every single thing we've given her. We found out that she does in fact like proteins, just in finger food form. We found this out by giving her tilapia that was in our fish tacos, while out a restaurant. We were shocked to see she loved it. We are doing 2 bottles a day (one morning and one at night) and the rest sippy cups. She gets 2 snack times (usually puffs, yogurt bites, teething wafer, etc.) and 3 meals (morning is usually lightest as she is not as hungry, lunch of fruit or vegetable, and dinner of protein and fruit/veggie).
I'm glad to report that it is the same thing here! So thankful that teething has not disrupted her sleep. One new addition is her puppy which goes to sleep with her. As soon as she sees it, she says "ruff."
This month Charlie was an extremely happy baby. We have dealt with the whining from the teeth the past week, but other than that, this was a great month!
Puppy, books, flashcards, Pop up toy, VTech walker
Music/dancing, eating, babbling, water, toys that make noise, stuffed animals, walking around things
Being frustrated (for example, she has learned to put things inside of other things and if she can't get it in, she cries), boredom
This month was a busy one for our Charlie girl. She is learning to interact with her toys and people a lot more. She knows what "inside" means and will stack smaller boxes in larger boxes. She is also starting to try and say a lot more words (although we have no idea what she is saying) rather than just saying "mama" or "dada." She has taken a couple more steps by herself and we know that walking is right on the horizon. We also know that she is starting to comprehend what we say because she will listen sometimes when we say the word no. Some times she is rotten and keeps on doing it!
Charlie, this may have been my favorite month. You were so incredibly enjoyable every day. I can't believe of how much stuff you are working on at once! From your eating, to talking and walking, you are just changing by the second. We have taken you to the zoo a couple times and checked out the aquarium. You were so great at each place and just love to be in the backpack carrier. We have also started taking your walker outside to see how far you are able to walk. You've made it completely around our cul-de-sac. However, we always have to carry you home. You are just adorable pushing that little walker down the sidewalk. You make us so proud every day. We are looking forward to what the next month will bring!
