Another Month Older

Oh... my little baby Kins is now 9 months old, our BIG little girl.  And it was time for another doctor check up. Dr. Karaman said she is doing great, she is doing everything she is supposed to be doing, even ahead of her game in some regards. She is almost two pounds heavier than at her 6 month checkup, weighing in at 18lb 13 1/2 oz. She grew another 1 1/2 inches, and her tiny head gained another inch as well in circumference. Way to GO KINS!!! I do however purposefully fail to tell the doctor every time that she is still sleeping in our bed, she hardly eats anything other than booby milk, and that she pretty much runs the show. I know what they will say, "you need to get her sleeping in her own crib, and you need to introduce her to the bottle, and let her know who's boss, otherwise they will assume the position." I know all this, but I will do all this when I am ready! She actually has just begun to eat really well, wanting whatever we are eating. She loves avocado, french fries, sweet potato, cup cakes, banana, pickles, orange peels, and even likes lemon. And the word "no" occasionally comes out of my mouth, but only when she puts our shoes in her mouth. Maybe I'll work on working this word into my vocabulary. 

She had a little 9 month birthday celebration, although the importance was masked by the fact that it fell on Father's Day. (So no pictures of her with a cookie and candle unfortuately.) I had to give that occasion precedence, as it only comes once a year and it was Kris' first one. He is such an amazing Father and he deserves nothing more to be celebrated. I can only celebrate him one day a year though cause it's exhausting. :)

I thought I would share some photos with you all, all taken within the last few days. We had some fun days at the park and outside our little home now that summer is here. It is so much fun having a little one around. I can't wait till she is running around, and we can go to so many more places.

  1. Hi Kristin - I enjoyed your blog write-up again this week. And those first two pictures in the group especially of her are just adorable. She has such a sweet smile, and is truly beautiful, just like her mother!
