Baby Update: 9 months old!

Another month down! Our little princess is 9 months old today! I can barely handle how fast she is growing. 😦

Height and weight: We had our 9 month check up the other day and Aurora is now 27 1/2 inches tall (which is crazy since she always has her legs bent, we never knew she was THAT tall!) and she weights a whopping 20lbs 11oz. Little chunk! She is still, consistently, in the 75% percentile across the board. ❤

Clothing: We have not moved to 9-12 month clothing yet, which is nice for Mummy and Daddy to have some clothes last a bit longer than usual). We are slowly wearing less onesies and more pants/shirt combos…with the occasional tutu. 😉

Sleeping: We started daycare last week, which means naps are rare. On a plus, that makes bedtime easier and less tossing and turning during the night. Tired baby equals for some deep sleeping.

Food: Aurora still drinks milk every 3 or so hours, we also sometimes suppliment the last bottle depending on if Mummy can keep up with the amount of milk Aurora likes to drink.

As always, this little chub LOVES all food. She is now at the age where she knows when we’re making and/or eating food and makes a fuss for us to share.

Noises and sounds: Lots of babbling these days. Sounds like “da”, “ba”, and “ya” are the fun ones. Giggling and screeching is also a normal noise that comes from Aurora regularly.

Milestones: Still no crawling, just lots of butt scooting and rolling. However, yesterday Aurora pulled herself up to her knees for the first time! I see trouble in our near future! 🙂

Favourite things: Aurora loves being held in the air, tickled, and pulling people’s faces and hair. She loves playing with her toys, anything to do with water, and eating anything we will share.

We also enjoy being a social butterfly and making friends and playing with them.

Dislikes:  Sleeping is a pretty big dislike. She fights us for a while on naps and bedtime now. Other than that she is a happy, loving little pumpkin.

Fun things!: Our little peanut’s personality is showing more and more. With all the rolling, she has become curious about things and gets into some mischief. When we tell her “no” she thinks it’s funny. Cheeky little trouble maker.

She has also realized that if she makes enough noise she can get the dog to join in the noise making. She also finds this funny, even if it drives Mummy and Daddy crazy (currently happening as I type this…).

Mummy and Daddy’s favourite moments: Daddy’s favourite moment was Aurora saying “dad dad” as her first word. Mummy loves how Aurora goes with an open mouth for kisses now! 

Both of us also enjoy how she is starting to dance and jump when music comes on! She loves music. 

Can’t believe Aurora is officially 9 months old! Our baby is growing so fast! Can’t wait to see what happens this month! ❤️
