Harper Robin - 9 Months

Monday, May 16, 2016

Nine months . . . how the heck are you nine months old? Harper is growing and changing so much! She's wearing 9 or 12 month clothes and the 6-12 month clothes and just moved up into sized 4 diapers. Her second tooth finally popped through on her 9 month birthday and boy was she grumpy the last few days due to those teeth! Although I didn't mind the extra snuggles because of it!

Loves: Harps is still LOVING the pets and I really think that love grows more and more each day. It's funny to see the different relationship that's growing and developing between each of the three animals. Cooper (dog) likes to watch her and lay close by while she plays, Lucy (cat) loves to play with her and is constantly following her around, and Calvin (cat) only watches from afar and makes sure to keep his distance!

Harper still loves the outdoors, and we hope to continue to spend more and more time outside as it stays nicer out! We joined baby boot camp this month and she so far has done pretty well at those outdoor classes since she gets to be outside and watch some of the other kids!

She's constantly on the move and is definitely getting more exhausting by the day! You can't turn your head for a minute or she's all the way across the room! She loves being able to be on the go and to explore everything around her!

Food: This month she sat in a high chair at a restaurant for the first time and is definitely loving it when we take her out! This makes going out to eat much easier for us parents!

Sleep: Still doing good sleeping in her crib. We've had a few nights where she is fighting going to sleep, so just trying to make sure to put her to bed before she's overtired is key! On Mother's Day she took nearly 2 and a half hours to fall asleep, and this mama can't handle too many nights like that one!

Firsts: This month was huge for Harper! She learned how to wave, pull herself up and crawl just a few days later. I can't believe how quickly she's changing and how fast she's growing! Slow down Harper!

Photos from this month: 

Harper, being your mom is the greatest job I've ever had and the best thing I've ever done! Life with you just keeps getting better and better and I can't imagine how much happiness and joy the future with you holds!
