Nine Months

 Mary is already nine months old! She's extremely talkative and loves to mimic our words. She's also crawling all over the place. (Her crawling style is a bit rough around the edges though. It's hard to get a bottom that big off the ground!) She's just started trying to pull herself up on the furniture. The biggest news of the month is that Mary now routinely soothes herself to sleep and doesn't need to be nursed or held until she falls asleep. This is a huge development!

Here are the things that Mary loves:

• Eating grown up food, especially tacos, spaghetti, grilled cheese and spinach
• Eating dinner and lunch, but not much breakfast
• Mimicking sounds, especially da-da, ah-ah, hisses and raspberries
• Drinking from her sippy cup
• Riding on Daddy's shoulders
• People watching
• Shopping and running errands
• Going for walks
• Mauling the cats
• Bags and boxes
• Knocking over towers of blocks
• Electric cords
• Taking books off her bookshelf
• Sleeping on her tummy
• Playing peek-a-boo

Here are the things that Mary hates:

• Being bored
• Being fed with a spoon
• Feeling grass against the back of her head

Milestones this month:

• Routinely soothing herself to sleep without parental intervention
• Flipping over to sleep on her tummy
• Using a pincer grip with both hands
• Pulling herself up on my legs

Mary weighs 20 pounds, eight ounces and is 28 inches long. We love you Mary!
