9 months




9 months stats:

teeth: 2!
weight: 18 lbs. 6 oz./42%tile
length: 28 inches/60%tile

the doctor has a mirror on the wall that runs along the little bed/table. haven was IN LOVE with herself, laughing and kissing herself. it was sort of unreal, but we realized the only mirror in our house is the bathroom vanity, so this was totally new and exciting for her. the doctor thinks she's "a vain little thing" and the nurse said "my sister is the same way." i tried to take some pictures of the flirtation going on (with herself) but all i had was my camera phone, so they're pretty lousy.

she's starting to babble a lot and even gets out some mama and dada's. she's at that age where we're really starting to fall in love with her. we've loved her from the start, but now is when it starts to get fun and her personality really starts to show. the only thing i'm sad to report: her cheeks are deflating. noticeably. so we're trying to enjoy what's left of them while they last...

Ditto to gina. I love her shirt. She's a little angel. Don't get any bigger before I come back, Havey!

at least she has a big brother to deflate her growing ego- he'll be sure to point out all of her faults. something my brothers rather enjoyed doing when i would bring over a new boyfriend. oh the joys... can't believe she is getting so old!

I can't believe how grown up she is looking. She still has some pretty good cheeks - I just want to kiss them. I love that she is so enamored with herself. Happy nine months, Haven!

she's a beauty alright...those eyes are to die for! When my sister was little and upset, she would stand in front of the mirror and cry and cry...she and her "friend" could work up to a pretty good hysteria together!?

I just noticed her weight is 42%. My doctor might be smoking crack unless boys are different than girls. She says he is 25% but he was 19.4 pounds. It makes more sense cause I think he's a chunky monkey.
