Last Tuesday, the 24th, our little Avery turned 9 months old & she is hitting all the developmental milestones right on cue. She is officially crawling, not very fast but she is mobile & thrilled to death about it. She mimics our sounds & words, she watches our mouths when we talk & is saying, "Bye, bye", "Mama", "DaDa", "Hey" and "Uh-Oh" but not intentionally yet. She really enjoys self feeding & will probably be off baby food soon if she keeps rejecting it & asking for what we are eating instead. Right now her favorite things to eat is fruit & yogurt, but she will try most anything. She is down to only 18 oz of formula a day & is starting to get the hang of her sippy cup.
She still takes 2 naps a day, loves her paci & blankey Minnie while she is sleeping & maybe teething. She has been quite fussy this week & not sleeping well, so we shall see if any teeth pop thru. We lowered her crib mattress Tuesday since she started sitting up in her bed. She is also becoming more aware of strangers & strange places + more attached me Mama.
