Motherhood: Month 9

Just a few days ago, my Ava turned 9 months old! Here is an update on the latest and greatest!

Ava has six teeth now…yes six. I know I’m a little slow to incorporate more solid foods, but the gagging scares me! She still loves these puffs, Stage 3 purees, and eggs. We tried this yogurt for the first time and she loved it! We are eating meals 2-3 times a day. When Ava is awake, she is busy. Like, she wakes up and doesn’t stop until nap time. I love her energy and seeing her excitement for all things. Gone are the days where she would be content just sitting. This girl is crawling, pulling up on everything, and “cruising” while holding onto the couch or table.

We had another double ear infection this month, but the pediatrician stated it was common of daycare babies. During that appointment, we found out she was 16 lbs! She’s still in size 3 diapers, and 6-9 month clothes.

She still loves shaking her head no, saying DADADADADADA, and baba. We’re still working on mama. I think she’s playing with me because every time I ask her to say mama, she smiles and shakes her head no. She is seriously the happiest baby ever. Sean and I joke (kind of) that she might be an only child because we don’t want to test it with another baby. We say if we have another, they will be an absolute terror.

Sleeping is still the same from our 8 month update. A few things she has really loved this month are petting Wayne, splashing in the pool/bath tub, and having her wubbanub in her mouth at all times. I know we need to switch this out for another pacifier, but I’m dreading the tantrum that will come from it.
