9 Month Update - Ava

October 27, 2016

Little Ava is already 9 months! This is my favorite age. She interacts with people, sits up, laughs, eats and so on. My baby is getting so big!

Height: 2 ft 3.5 inches (45%)
Weight: 15 lb 5 oz (8%)
Head: 44 cm (55%)
  • She loves food. She's grabbing at everything in her sight. She's like a ninja, grabbing things off the table so fast!
  • She sits up on her own now.
  • Not crawling yet.
  • She loves standing and bouncing.
  • She throws her body around when we're holding her now. We need to be careful and hold on to her tightly, otherwise she'll try to jump out of our arms.
  • She has terrible constipation. It's actually really sad. Poor thing is eating more solids now, but she's getting more constipated too. Started giving her water in a sippy cup during meals.
  • She has two teeth (bottom). I think the top two are coming soon.
  • Her sleeping has been a little up and down, but its getting back to normal and she's sleeping better at night. Her naps have always been good.
  • She just learned about splashing water. Bath time can get quite messy.
  • She enjoys clapping her hands and waving.
  • She has this goofy crooked smile.
  • She sweats easily (just like Dad).
  • She likes swatting at your face, grabbing your lips and pulling your hair.
Ava is such a character. She's sweet, impatient and goofy. She loves being around people and watching everything around her. She smiles at anyone and anything. She gets so excited when she sees something she wants or likes and she has this goofy little smile. She wants to be around Erin all the time. It's pretty darn cute. I love that she hugs me, reaches for me and lays her head on my shoulder intentionally. She doesn't cry much, but yells quite often. Changing her diaper is a HUGE task now because girl won't stay still anymore. She's eating all sorts of things now: beef, rice, breads, yogurt, all sorts of fruits and veggies, and etc. She LOVES all foods but strangely doesn't gain weight.

In 3 short months, little Ava will be turning 1. Can't believe how fast this year went by!
