Gracie is 9 months old!

This age is hitting me hard. All of a sudden my baby isn’t so babyish anymore. She’s crawling around like she owns the place. Standing up like it’s no big deal and even letting go and standing on her own.

She’s like a piranha with these 6 teeth! She’s still biting me when she nurses and it’s so painful. When I yell at her she laughs.

She holds her own with Timmy, if anything the tables have turned and she’s the one beating him up. She’s very quick to turn around and slap you in the face.

Her hair is starting to really come in and she’s thinned out so much since she started crawling. When you look in her eyes it’s like looking at Tim, they have the exact same eyes.

She still loves bathtime and she is the ultimate mamas girl although I think that she’s getting better about that in the last few days. There were times when I couldn’t even walk out of the room without her screaming and no one else could hold her. It was all mommy, all the time. Just yesterday though when Tim came home from work she started wiggling to get down and she crawled all the way to the front door to give him a kiss just like Timmy does. Soooo sweet. That’s her newest trick giving kisses with all puckered up lips.

She loves truck and trains {I wonder why} and she looks at books like she really reading them.

Food has been a real struggle to the point where I was starting to get nervous. This week has been so different though. She suddenly is very interested in whatever you are eating. Tonight Tim was eating jello and she was twisting her neck around to look at it instead of nursing. She loves blueberries and sweet peas but hates anything banana. It’s so gross to her that she shivers when it gets near her.

Her facial expressions are so classic. She has the pouty lip down pat and she uses it to her advantage. It’s so sad and so funny at the same time. When she laughs it is the absolute best sound, she has such a girly giggle. Her tongue is out ALL the time like a mini Miley.

“Mama” “Dada” and “byebye” are what she’s talking about. Pretty sure that’s all Timmy’s doing. First thing he asks me when he wakes up is if we are going byebye.

Biggest milestone has to be the crib. It is official that she is napping in her crib everyday as of 3 days ago lol but still a huge deal in this house. She also is going to bed the same time as Timmy in her crib. Last night she did not make a peep about being put to bed. However she’s waking up every night at midnight to eat and then I let her stay in our bed. Even those 3 hours of alone time for me are a gift and I’ll take it. I spend most of those 3 hours staring at the monitor…

I guess it’s time to start planning her first birthday. It makes me very sad. It really does feel like yesterday I was dressing her in her little pink bear outfit to come home from the hospital.
