17796062_828830187071_7587488411130825900_n

Stats: 19lbs (90th %), 27.5 in (92nd %), head circumference 18 in (>98th %)

Size: Had to move her up to 9 month size clothing (6-12 in other brands). Still in size 2 diapers but as soon as this box runs out I’m moving her to size 3.

Sleep: We ditched the swaddle and the bouncer, swing, and rock n play over the last few weeks.  She now takes all naps and sleeps overnight in her crib in a sleep sack. The transitions were no big deal at all. We close the curtains, turn on white noise, and she sucks her thumb and falls asleep quickly.  Most naps are at least an hour, sometimes 90 min-2 hours.  She still sleeps through the night most nights.  8pm-ish to 8am- ish since daylight savings time.  Gretchen often wakes up before her sister! She is usually awake for about 90 minutes between naps, sometimes a long stretch of awake time between 5-8. I don’t track them well but I think she takes 2 long naps and 2 short naps a day.

Eating: We moved to big bottles and she takes 6-8 oz per feeding now.  We offered her solid food for the first time, some sweet potato puree we had. She is curious about it but pushes most of it out with her tongue, swallowing very little.  She has also tried mashed banana and applesauce with the same result.  We’ll keep trying!

Likes: Sucking her thumb, sitting while we support her and playing with toys, rolling all over the place, playing in her activity center, blowing raspberries (especially at church!), toys that crinkle and make noise, chewing on things/drooling.

Dislikes: When she’s rolling and gets stuck somewhere.

Firsts: Solid food (sweet potato puree), first tooth (bottom incisor)
