Sweetie at 9 Months

This little lady has had a developmental explosion the last month. She started really getting her army crawl on right after she turned 8 months. Then she would get up on her hands and knees, but not really go anywhere on them. Over the last two weeks she has started to hands and knees crawl. And now most recently she is pulling herself up. It has been crazy. The Mister was gone for an overnight trip and she had mastered pulling up while he was gone.
As demonstrated by these pictures, she rarely holds still!! Diaper changes are tricky for sure!!
We also just made the big switch to having her sleep in a crib in Shortcake's room. While I wouldn't have minded keeping her in the bassinet in our room for a bit longer, her movement made me worry about her safety in there anymore. Also, we are trying to get her to sleep a bit longer at night and we thought that not being right in with us might help. So far she is doing okay in the crib. The first night she rocked it in there and I was hoping that would do the trick, but since then she is up a few times a night. I am trying to be good about not bringing her in our bed when she wakes up at night. While that is super easy, it probably is time to wean her out of that habit.
At her nine month appointment she weighed in at 20# and is inches long. She has been doing really well with the solid foods. She really likes to eat.
Even though she is number four, I am still amazed at God's design for the human body and growth! She is still a little sweetheart. Super content and chill most of the time. (Although she is good about letting us know when she is sad. Just look at that face!!) She is such a great fit for our family!!
