The Quickest 9 Months

Can you believe Hannah has been in our lives for just as long as she was in my belly? Let me tell you, these 9 months definitely passed way faster than it did when I was pregnant. It felt like I was preggo forever but now it seems it was only yesterday baby girl was born. It's unbelievable to me that she is already 9 months old and this month, she learned to do so much!

That is her 9 month sticker crumbled up in her hand, so mama had to write it on the picture instead.

She's crawling around like a pro with different techniques for carpeting and hardwood floors. She can also pull herself to stand now... I know, I'm in for it. The best new thing she does is whenever she hears music, she DANCES. It's hilarious to watch. She loves to sing (it's really just yelling) and dance! She's also working on learning to clap.  Overall, she's still a super happy baby, still not a great sleeper, and still loves to eat. And I'm still the proudest mommy ever.


At 9 months, she loves:
+ Eating, eating, eating. Her favorite are puffs, yogurt melts, and apples. But really, this girl will eat anything... especially if it's something mama and dada are eating.
+ Waving hi.
+ Listening to music and singing/dancing along.
+ Standing.
+ Playing peek-a-boo. She'll hide herself under a towel until we say "where's Hannah" and then she'll appear and have the proudest look on her face.
+ Going wherever mama goes.

She hates:
+ Getting dressed.
+ When you won't let her play (like when you need to get her dressed).
+ When mama leaves the room without her.


Up next for us is getting ready for our first Christmas together! We're so excited to start new traditions with our girl and watch her open all her presents. Yes, mama went a little wild with the gifts, but you only get to celebrate your 1st Christmas once, am I right? And yes, I do realize she will probably enjoy the wrapping paper much more than the actual presents. Follow us on instagram for more photos!

To all those who celebrate, have a very Merry Christmas!

It is INSANE how fast time flies. It seems like I just had my oldest baby and he is starting his first job today! Reilly is already 7 months old and my other two are catching up really quickly to their older brother. Just enjoy as much time now as you can. She is such a little cutie! Love that last pic! LOL

Awww...go Hannah!! After the standing all the "real" fun starts. Get ready Momma :-) She is such a doll. B wants to eat whatever we're eating too. He gets sooo pissed when we don't give him any (if it's something he can't have). The 9 month mark was definitely crazy.

I'm SO excited for Christmas too. B is OBSESSED with Christmas lights so it's been reallllly fun already!

She is such a cutie pie!!! My little man did not sleep through the night until I let him cry it out when he turned one. I remember the first year was just no sleep for the hubby & I.

You've got a lot to be proud of--in her and your little family in general. Her playing peek-a-boo is so cute! I like it when little ones wave and say hello. I always wave back (it would be rude to ignore them), but some parents don't like that so much--so I never make a big deal out it. Just a wave, a smile and a quick hello.

Merry Christmas!!!

Maiken said...

I am sooo happy for you, your baby girl is too adorable. She's really smart for being able to wave and play peek-a-boo so well at 9 months! And my son is 18 months, still having some separation anxiety *hehe* Well, looking forward to holiday pics! xo
