Rachel: 9 months Old

Precious girl, the past nine months have raced by at a speed that seems to amaze us more and more each day as we see you move and grow faster then we could have imagined possible.  You are now rocking back and forth on your knees trying to figure out how to scoot around the room, for now your solution is to roll around like a little tootsie roll.  Of course you still favor rolling to your left and get upset when you get up against an object and you don't roll back to your right to go back where you want to go.  Since I last posted about you on the blog, you have started eating baby food and drinking juice.

You Weigh: 14 lbs 14 oz.
Length:  26 1/2"
Head:  15 3/4"
(This puts you in the 50% in weight and 75% in length on the DS growth scale.  ON the normal growth scale you are 3% in weight and 25% in length.)
You Wear: size 9-12 month's clothing and a size 3 diaper
(you can still wear some of your 6 months clothes)
Feeding:  6 - 8 oz bottles, Similac for Fussiness and Gas x 4 and you are eating three meals of baby food a day, you generally have one 4 oz bottle of juice each day.  So far we have not found a fruit or vegetable that you don't like, we did try to increase you to stage 3 foods recently, but you didn't care for the extra texture.  Your a very greedy happy eater, it's like feeding a little bird because as soon as we get done with a bite your ready for the next one before we can even fill the spoon.
 We bought a gate for your bedroom door so that we could put you down on the floor to play in your beautiful room without your brothers coming in to take over your toys and playtime.  You love playing on your rug, I think it's the various textures and colors.
In May you took your first big road trip to go an celebrate your grandparents 50th Anniversary.  Besides the happy couple, you were the hit of the party and I had a hard time getting people to lay you down in your pack-n-play so you could nap.  I think your favorite part of the weekend was the pool at the hotel and going to see the polar bear at the zoo.
In just a few more weeks you will get to meet your Daddy's side of the family when we go to New York, it will be a big trip but it will be wonderful to introduce you to that side of your family for the first time.  You will also get a chance to meet Mommy's best friend Erin and I can't wait for her to love on you.

Your growing, changing, and showing more of your personality each day.  Your brothers are so very much in love with you and love playing with your, kissing on your, and holding you whenever they can.  In three more months you will be a year old, which is so unbelievable, and I am no hurry for the next three months to pass!
