most of our kiddos are 9 months (or close to there) so I figured this would be a good time for a quick update on how our LO's are doing..
Height/Weight- no idea with height. The nurse measured her last week at 29 " but the ped said that was completely wrong (it would have bumped her up from 65th to 90th percentile. I am not tall.) so I'm guessing maybe 28"? Weight is 21 lbs.
Food- still on the formula-4 bottles a day, ranging from 4-8 oz. Usuually 20-24 oz a day. She eats 3 meals a day and some snacks randomly. Breakfast is usually pancakes I've pre made or egg yolks and cheese; lunch is usually chicken and a veg; dinner is whatever we are eating. Once in awhile if we are out she sucks purees out of her pouch.
Language- no words! Lots of babbling and making sounds but no specific mama and dada yet.....
mobility- right now she's starting to get into an unassisted standing position either from already holding onto something, or if she pushes off from something off the ground (i.e. if theres a box, she'll put hr hands on it and get stand up from there) and can stand with toys in her hands. She walks with her lion walker but isn't interested in "cruising" along furniture. Crawls like a demon
social- oh geesh. LOVES to smile and wave at everyone...if someone is looking at her she'll start babbling at them and laughing.....loves peek a boo, playing tag and roughhousing with daddy. I actually saw her engage with him in play-i've never seen her do it! He was picking her up, tickling her and gently throwing her onto the couch...and she would sit up, laugh and then LUNGE at him to do it again. It was so funny. no kisses or hugs but she's not super affectionate unless she's tired or feeling shy. oh, and she throws MAJOR fits. it's pretty funny but definitely going to be an issue-she starts hitting our hands and if we redirect her hands when she's reaching for something she shouldn't, she throws herself down on the floor and cries.
toys she loves- I feel like she's abnormally apathetic to toys. She might bang some stuff together, but she prefers to crawl/stand/walk in her walker and explore then to play. Usually i just let her roam free in my room and she pulls drawers open, gets clothes out, etc. Sometimes she rolls a ball back to me but usually isn't interested. How is everyone else's LO's playing with toys? Makes christmas hard...we got her a piano and then a talking dog that she loved and something she can stand on and throw basketballs into and it gives her a lot of noise when she does it.
How's everyone LO's doing??
Little Riley-our first little girl coming March 1st, 2013 (or sometime around there;)
