9 Months

Alayna Jane you are 9 months old today!

You are more beautiful everyday and more sweet too if that's even possible.

You got your first tooth (your bottom right) on April 9th. You don't let many people see it though.

You can easily go from your tummy to sitting.

You can almost crawl, but you haven't done it yet. I am in no rush, so don't feel the need to start. I enjoy not having baby gates and feeling good about turning my back. Once you start crawling you'll be everywhere. Then before I know it you'll be walking :(

Ever since the hospital you have had a real attachment to mommy, but I am loving it.

You are better since the hospital, but you still seem to have an issue with ear infections. You're as happy as can be though!

You weigh 26 pounds and you're 28 inches.

Your only word is dadda, which by the way he loves hearing you call his name.

You enjoy crackers, or more like you light up when we say cracker. You also have had carrots mashed and you like those too!

You can hold yourself up for quite a while, and you're so proud of yourself too.

You flip over when you sleep now and it's always a mystery where you'll be in the bed when we come get you.

You sleep all through the night from about 8-8 give or take an hour.

You nap in the morning and you nap in the afternoon for about an hour and a half sometimes three in the afternoon.

You don't like dogs. You have always seemed scared of them, but when I took you to the pet store yesterday and you saw the dogs you almost scratched my shoulder off trying to get away. Don't worry no dogs in the future for now!

You love bath time especially with Preston, he splashes and you splash back. That's my girl!



  1. Oh Caroline - she's just so beautiful. Such a gift from God - as all of your sweet babies are. I'm so jealous of her sleeping patterns. Bo just doesn't like the idea of a good night's sleep - for him or mommy!

  2. What a doll!!! I can hardly wait to see her. I hope she won't be leary of us. Can hardly wait!!!!

  3. Awwww, she is so cute. God bless her.

  4. She is a doll baby!! I love those legs!! I could just eat her with a spoon, she is so sweet!!
