9 months

My blue eyed girl.

9 Months old! Only three more weeks and she will have lived outside of my body longer than she did on the inside. Which is very strange to think about. On her birthday, I allowed the pang of sadness to wash over me in thinking about Isabella being 9 months now, sent Michael the "I can't believe our baby is 9 months!" text, and then moved on to how much we are enjoying her.

Over the last month she has really started moving all over the place to get to things she wants. Which is usually to press the buttons on the DVD player! She isn't getting up on all fours yet, but has begun trying. She has been attempting to pull up on things, but not with much success. At her 9 month appointment she weighed 17lbs 13oz and was 27 inches long, putting her in the 25th percentile. It was our first time to go to the doctor without Michael. I guess we are both big kids now! I did all the parts he usually does and entertained her for 50 minutes (!!!!) while we waited for the doctor to come in. This is no great task for a baby that is now mobile and just wants to go all the time. She now has two teeth, both on the bottom. She babbles a lot and likes to see how loud she can make her voice go. She became extra clingy over this last month, and even cuddly at times. She is so smiley and that has blessed us and a lot of people we see while we are out. I love seeing her many expressions and tiny glimpses of what her personality might be like.

On to our monthly zebra/chair pictures:

Getting quite boring.


The wave.
Isabella started waving about a week ago. You would think our child just graduated from Harvard with the joy this new skill gives us!
Love you Isabella Grace!
