9 Months

Mckinley is 9 months old today. She has been out of my stomach for as long as she was in it. Well, in a week that will be true since she stayed in an extra week. :)

I love love loved having her in my belly but I love her outside of it even more. Look at that face, how could you not?

Anyway, we went to the doctor today and here are her stats.

Weight: 18 lbs 6 oz (43%)
Height: 27.5 inches (49%)
Head: 17.75 inches (81%)

At 9 months Mckinley:

  • Crawls!
  • Is a pro at giving kisses.
  • Is starting to wave a little.
  • Likes to copy you when you say "Ah!" (she'll copy you over and over and over, it's so fun)
  • Pulls herself up on anything she can and walks along it.
  • Finally got to meet her Grandma and Grandpa Bishop!
  • Still just has two teeth on the bottom (although I think I can see one of her top teeth getting close).
  • Doesn't say very many words with consonants but she loves to jabber.
  • Understands a bunch of words and does lots of tricks.
  • Will always turn her head and search for him if you ask "Where's Daddy?" She L.O.V.E.S. him.
  • Can be found standing up in her crib now when she wants to get out (like twice in the last half hour since I put her down).
  • Still wakes up in the night to eat, but last night we decided to put a stop to that. Brandon hung out next to her crib at 3 in the morning this morning till she went back to sleep. And she had her record night of 13 hours!
  • Loves to go to sleep with her binki but we have lost 2 out of 3 of the ones she likes so once the 3rd one is lost, it's all over.
  • Takes 2 good naps every day, and sometimes a 3rd nap in the evening.
  • Loves to eat anything we're eating, but still loves rice cereal and baby food.
  • Has almost eaten more cheerios than her body weight.

Anyway, we just love this little girl so much and are so blessed to have her in our lives.

I can't believe how fast she is growing up! It still seems like just a couple weeks ago that I saw you in the hospital and she was just a tiny baby!
