Clara at 9 Months

I intended to be one of those awesome moms who takes a picture of their child in the same place once a month to watch them grow. Then, I was going to write little tidbits about milestones and developments. Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans...

Clara turned 9 months yesterday. She is hilarious and full of spunk.

She loves to eat "big people" food. We had a hard time getting her started on solids but now she'll happily eat anything. She learned her first sign--more! She may be a tiny little thing but she can sure put it down.

She is now almost exclusively bottle fed, much to my chagrin. She prefers real food to bottles. It's going to be a struggle to get her to drink her bottles for another 3 months.

She loves her big sister. They have fun dance parties and wrestling matches. They are good little roommates. I got Clara up yesterday morning and when Abby woke up she was upset that Clara wasn't in the room. She said, "Can you not get Clara out tomorrow?"

She is still behind in her gross motor skills but she can usually get where she wants to go with the combination of rolling and rotating. Her physical therapist still comes once a week and she seems pleased with her progress. We hope she can learn to crawl soon so she won't get so frustrated.

She has the cutest, cheesiest crinkle-nose grin and she knows when to lay it on.

She is a sweetheart and we love her to pieces, even if her favorite sound to make is DADADADA.


  1. Love that sweet little face! And those cheeks are finally getting chubby!

  2. I LOVE that grin! I will totally give her whatever she wants because of it! Can I see you this Christmas?
