9 months

Tomorrow, Parker will be 9 months old. I can hardly believe that time has gone by that fast. I feel like she was just born. She is very much in the fun state right now. Even though she is into everything she is still so much fun. The first of January, she will be going to her 9 month appointment so I will have more information on her height and weight. She is growing constantly so that is a good sign. Some things she has accomplished so far are:

She is eating like a champ. She still has around four bottles a day, baby food as well as "people food". There are so many things that she enjoys to eat. It is neat to watch her try all kinds of things.

She has been a great sleeper the last couple of weeks or so. She is going to bed in between 8 and 9 and sleeping until 7 or 8 am. Those are usually the days she and I are at home, the weekends. Other than that I have to wake her up to go to daycare, :(. She sleeps in her crib but she now can stand in it and pull things off of the wall, yikes! Good thing it is only plush.

Her mobility is great. She can crawl extremely fast, pull up and stand, stand by herself for a second or two, climb a flight of 12 stairs and of course sit up from her stomach. She is doing wonderful developmentally. She can wave bye-bye but only when she feels like it, play pat-a-cake, peekaboo, and many more things. She is saying mama, dada and night night. I am trying to slowly incorporate some sign language as well. We are still working on the sign for mama. Maybe in a month or so we will move on to something else.

She is doing absolutely wonderful and I couldn't be more happier. We are going Thursday to FINALLY have her pictures taken for Christmas. She has a beautiful red Christmas dress all ready to go. We can't wait to go to Conway and DeQueen for Christmas to see all of our families. Here are a few pictures of her playing in the kitchen, eating and etc. Enjoy!!
