Guess whoooo is 9 months old! I can't believe we are 3/4 of the way through her first year. It is just going by so fast. Look at my growing girl...I can't believe she is getting so big.
Harper learned a trick this month...but, it wasn't crawling, pulling up or getting to a seated position on her own. We are so close to all three of those...she started getting on all fours and rocking back and forth so I am sure the crawling is right around the corner. Her new trick of the month is waving - I just think it is so cute when she waves at me and waves to her caregivers at daycare when she leaves. She always seems so proud of herself when she does it.
She really enjoys playing with her toys and one of her favorites is her Stride to Ride dinosaur. She loves for us to push her on the dinosaur back and forth between me and Tony and she squeals with delight.
Harper went to to zoo for the first time this month and the whole family had a great time. She went for a ride on the carousel and just had the best time. I know she is going to love Walt Disney World in two months.
Harper is wearing mostly 12 month clothes and size 3 diapers. We are so thankful it has warmed up around here (except for today and tomorrow) because we have lots of cute short sleeve clothes we need to wear before we outgrow them. And, it seems like she either has short arms or her clothes just have freakishly long arms because I always have to roll her sleeves under when she wear long-sleeve clothes.
So far, she has only rejected one food - avocado. The poor little girl was just gagging away...but, she chows down on everything else. She has eaten apples, pears, bananas, peaches, mangoes, strawberries, yellow squash, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, sweat peas, broccoli and carrots. I guess we need to start introducing meat in her diet as well. I hope it goes just as well as everything else.
During this last month, Harper got completely off the bottle and I have daycare to thank for that one. I sent some juice to school in a sippy cup and by the next day, they sent all of her bottles home and from that day on, we have never gone back. She is a bit picky with the cups though...she will only drink out of the Nuk cups. Silly girl!
Harper loves her books - and we have discovered some amazing ones this month. Her grandmother bought her a new book that is a Magic Ribbon Book about Rainbows...it is a cool concept that she loves! At the Oklahoma City Zoo, we found a book called Tails that is so neat...it has different textured tails to touch and Harper loves it. She barely wanted to go to bed tonight because she wanted to keep feeling the tails. I love that girl!
We are ready to see what the next month brings - we love you baby girl!
