9 month check-up

I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated here. The second half of the summer went by in a haze of sleepless nights with Rose teething (she got 4 teeth in all at once, doubling what she already had) and with me returning to the freelance design arena.

But yesterday was Rose’s 9 month check-up at the doctor’s and I figured an update would be a good way to reboot.

Rose, 9 month checkup

age: 9 months, 2 weeks
height: 30.75
weight: 22.75

Rose is continuing to grow like a weed. She’s above 95th percentile for height and between 90-95th for weight.

always smiling!

She is essentially mobile these days. While she’s not doing a traditional crawl on her hands and knees she sort of scoots military style on her elbows, pushing off with one foot. Sitting up isn’t even a challenge for her at this point and she is beginning to pull herself up to stand on some things. We have found her standing up in her Pack-n-Play on many occasions. Problem is that she can get up but can’t figure out how to get down again. One thing is for sure, she is definitely more aggressive in developing her skills than her sister was.

She is also becoming a very stubborn strong-willed little girl. She refuses to eat baby food off the spoon these days and isn’t partial to trying too many new foods. She likes her crackers, rice puffs and Cheerios just fine, thank you very much. The doctor told me to be tenacious about giving her different foods to eat and I’ve also been adding some cereal to her bottles just to fill her up. I hope she turns around because I don’t think I can deal with another picky eater.

The past few nights she has been sleeping great, so we’re hoping this trend continues so that I don’t have a nervous breakdown!
