Mallory is 9 Months Old!

Mallory is 9 Months Old!


20.6 lbs


27 inches


Still wearing size 3


A couple of 6 months outfits still work, but you are mostly in 9-12 month outfits and started wearing some just 12 month clothes


You have tried so many new foods! You have 4 bottles a day. You love your oatmeal. I mix fruit in it every morning and you eat it up! Your favorite snack for sure is Cheerios. You get so excited when you see me grab the big yellow box from the pantry and give you some. I'm so glad you are liking and are able to enjoy more food. I make green beans, peas and other veggies so you can feed yourself. Most things you will only eat if you can feed yourself. You also love your fruits, string cheese, well, you will basically try anything and there's really not a lot of things you won't eat.


Baby girl, I love you but remember when you would wake up, find your pacifier and go back to sleep in the middle of the night? You still go to bed around 8:30 pm - 9:00 pm but sometime in the night, you will roll over on your back and then not roll yourself back over and scream because you don't want to be on your back. Good times. It's ok if you fall asleep on your back or if you roll back on your stomach. Your dad and I would appreciate it. But your naps are still good. Most of the time you will take a short cat nap in the morning and about a 2 hour afternoon nap.

Other fun things

You love to talk! You said your first words: Bye-bye, Mama and now you are just stuck on Gaga which isn't a real word but you love to say it over and over. You don't have a volume control either as our friends and family have come to find out. When you want to talk, you just speak loud for all to hear!

You aren't crawling but you are leaning forward to get on your hands and knees. This just happened in the last couple of days. If you need to get somewhere though, you usually figure out a way to manuvere yourself there. You love to stand and would do that all day if you could. You like to stand on the outside of the exercauser and play. You are starting to move your feet more and not just stand in one position. Some people say you will walk before you crawl. Either way, it's fun to see you learning all these new things!

You got your new carseat! At first you didn't know what to think but now you love it because it's more room. You still will fall fast asleep if you are in there for a while. It's definitley nice not to have to carry you and the carseat out everywhere. I wasn't strong enough for it!

You love to clap and love to play with your bottom teeth. I haven't felt anymore making their way in but I'm hoping one does soon so we will have an explanation to the extra whining this past week. I love being home with you, seeing you everyday and making memories!

Look at you Grow!

Happy 9 Months Mallory! We Love You!
