9 Months!!!


I'm back and I am 9 months old!! Can you believe it? I'll give you a minute to pick your jaw up off the floor. I know, I know. It's crazy, right?? You blinked and I'm practically off to college tomorrow. Things have been going well in my kingdom. Everyone calls me "princess" so I might as well play along and refer to my little world as a kingdom :)

Here are few big things that have been happening over the last month:

-My chompers. I have 5 teeth so far. Started out with the two bottom. Then my two (fangs/K-9's) came in (which left me looking like a little vampire for awhile!) and now I have a front top tooth coming in. So it's official! All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth people!
-I am sitting up on my own. Completely on my own and loving it! My new favorite thing is to ride in the front of a shopping cart. It's a blast.
-I must grab at every single thing I see and sometimes I must taste it too. But my little hands are quite busy playing with toys and reaching and grabbing everything. Mommy's hair is fun to pull at :) And who needs toys when I can play with Daddy's necklace!
-My exersaucer is the bomb. Seriously, you guys should try it. I have so much fun bouncing up and down and playing with all the gadgets. It's great for chilling out and watching a DVD too.
-Food. I have to say I do not have a big interest in solid foods yet. I will eat jar food, but it's not that exciting to me yet. Mommy has tried mum-mums and puffs and fruit in the mesh thing, but I am not a fan yet. I gag on most stuff.Someday soon probably I will enjoy it, but for now I would much rather play with the highchair straps and anything else I can get my hands on.
-Sleep. What's that? Unfortunately for Mommy I am not much of a sleeper. Naps are here and there and I'm still getting up about twice a night. This is a work in progress. Mommy is hopeful that I am going to sleep through the night as my Christmas gift to her. Last I checked sleeping through the night was "out of stock." So we'll see. No promises :)
-I love to smile and laugh! Still have my fussy moments here and there but for the most part I am a happy baby! It's so fun to hear my own little voice so I am constantly yelling and making noise :)
-I am starting to do better in the car! No more screaming fits! Which my parents are pretty happy about. I usually use the car time now to catch some beauty sleep or listen to Christmas music that Mommy plays over and over.
-I'm still not a big fan of tummy time, but I am putting more effort in now so that I can get my move on soon with a crawl! I have a two month buffer here with my milestones so I am taking my time! But oh boy will it be fun to play "catch me if you can" with Mom and Dad.
-Last time I was at the doctor's I was about 14lbs 4oz. So I bet now I am nearing 15. Still a peanut. Mommy is considering putting me in a custom onesie for outings that reads "Yes, I am cute. Thank you for saying so. How old am I? I am 9 months old. Yes, I am so tiny. I was a preemie." Mom has this convo all the time in stores since people are always shocked at how small I am. I'm thinking of a custom onesie that says "Small but mighty." What do you think??
-My new little cousin Dax was born this past month!
-Did you all hear about the Elmo scandal? Yeah, I don't even want to talk about it. I hope my beloved Elmo lives on. Still enjoy watching Sesame Street though!
-My First Thanksgiving was great. I did a great job sitting like a big girl at the table in my highchair. Mommy tried to feed me some mashed potatoes and I gagged on them.
-No real words yet, but my parents think they've heard me say "Daddadadadadada" but I haven't done anything on purpose yet. I may throw them a curve and have my first word be "Toys R Us" or "Honey Boo Boo" or something. I have some time to think about it.

Things that are coming up:
-Follow up developmental appointment this coming week!
-Getting my picture taken with Santa!
-My First Christmas!
-And my surgery in January :( Booooo.

All in all, it's been a good month and I happy to be a big 9 month old!!! Here are my 9 month pictures that Mommy took of me! She has way too much fun with this stuff. But I have to admit, I kind of love it too :) Mom says she'll post our Christmas card later in the month. Thanks for stopping by!

I wish you all a very merry Christmas...

So cute!

Aw love this update, I think Sam got your sense of humor :) 9 months is an awesome baby age, they love just sitting and playing and smiling! Enjoy every moment before she busts out some moves and is crawling everywhere and talking your ear off :)

Erica said...

she is just so PRECIOUS!!!! One thing of being a Momma of boys... no tutus for me :(

Mrs. H said...

That outfit is just to die for! Happy 9 months!

Sarah said...

Happy 9th months Samantha! Love the reindeer outfit and pics!

Rebecca said...

Had to show Samantha's photos to my husband. "Poor kid" was his reply to seeing them. LOL

Joys Truly said...

The reindeer pic is too much! Love it!

Faith said...

Too cute! That rudolph outfit is just too much!

Stephanie said...

CUTE pictures!! Oh my gosh, what a doll! That's great that she's doing better in the car, and I love how fitting the "all I want for Christmas" song is for her. I guess that would work for Chloe too. Heck, any teeth would be nice!
