So since I am so far behind, and Mady turns 9 months old tomorrow, I thought I would just combine the 8 and 9 month posts!
Here is Mady at 8 months...
And here is Mady at 9 months!
The biggest change has been the addition of teeth! Her first tooth broke through the day before she turned 8 months and the second one broke through the day before she turned 9 months!
Mady went to the doctor today and here are her stats. She weighs 16 lbs 4 oz and is 27 1/4 inches long. She is in the 10th percentile for weight and right between the 25th and 50th for height.
Mady is a eating machine! Tonight we started her on 3rd stage foods and that seemed to help her get full. We also let her try out yogurt melts and we bought her some of the Lil Crunchies. She hasn't tried them yet, but I am sure she will love them! She absolutely loves puffs and we really haven't found anything she doesn't like. The girl loves her food!
She still sleeps great. She has also learned to hold her bottle, which I absolutely love! She looks adorable holding her bottle. (I am not sure why this picture is sideways or how to turn it)
She has also learned to clap. She loves it when you say, "Yay Mady!" This is also a picture of her first pigtails!
Her daddy and I went on a little vacation and Mady got to spend the week with her grandma! She was great for her and I was so happy that she remembered me when I got back! The day after we got back, April 19, Mady started army crawling! She is on the move and there is no stopping her now. She still rolls like crazy but now she scoots too!
She is still her sister's #1 fan. She just adores her! They play together and Kendyl pretend feeds her, which really just makes Mady mad. She doesn't understand why there is no food on the spoon! I am so happy that they love each other as much as they do.
So here's to hoping I will get better at updating this. I am sure there are tons of fun times to come!
