Hattie - 9 Months

The littlest munchkin is already 9 months old.  It's crazy when you have the first baby, everything seems to drag on.  You want them to grow up so you can experience all those firsts.  Then, when you have the baby, especially when the baby is the 4th baby, you want it to drag on and it flies by!! At 9 months, Hattie:

-weighs 18 lb, 10 oz (53%)
-is 27 in long (35%)
-has a 43.8 head circumference (51%)
-wears size 12 month clothing
-wears size 3 diapers
-drinks four 8 oz bottles a day
-has moved onto stage 3 baby food and usually eats 3 or 4 of those a day
-still goes to sleep around 7-7:30 pm and sleeps until 6:30 or 7:00 am
-can't quite figure out the concept of crawling..she'll get on those knees and rock like crazy but she can't figure out how to move forward and it makes her so mad!
-loves to eat the little Gerber puffs as a snack
-is starting to figure out how to drink out of a sippy cup...we're definitely working on that one!
-can't seem to shake her cold/ear infection..she avoided any kind of sickness until about 7 months but she's been sick since then.  She'll be getting better while on the antibiotic, but as soon as that runs out, it comes right back.  We're currently on her 3rd antibiotic which is supposedly a strong one so hopefully we'll kick this thing in the butt
-finally said "ma-ma" on January 3, 2014!! (made me so happy!)

I just can't get over how much I love this little girl.  She's definitely the apple of her momma's eye..she's so sweet, I just can't get enough!!
