Our girl is 9 months old!

YES this post is extremely overdue... better late than never!

Our baby girl is 9 months old! I am beside myself. That means 3 more months until her first birthday... WHAT?!?!?!

Hailey is moving along just fine... by "moving" I mean MOVING =) You can't really keep the kid in one spot anymore. She's not exactly crawling, more scooting on her butt and she gets up on her hands and feet and rocks back and forth. She's so ready to go!

The kid is talking up a storm... she's still saying daddy, dad, baba and she's added some new words like baby, keke, wikka wikka, etc. Still not giving up the MAMA very often. I think I have heard it about 3 times total. Come on Hailey!

She's got more teeth coming in. We thought she had just her two top teeth poking through and daddy realized that she had 4 top teeth coming! That makes 6 teeth total. I have to say, I am SO impressed with her and the whole teething thing. I have heard horror stories of poor babies being so miserable and I can totally relate, teeth coming in hurts BAD. Hailey has been a little fussy here or there but nothing that has even really made me think she was in any kind of pain.

Also, she thinks that since she has 6 teeth now she can shovel whatever she wants into her mouth. LOL She's eating pretty much anything we eat and she hates eating things one at a time, she would rather stick it all in her mouth at once and chew later. We are working on that!

9 month stats?
Hailey is weighing in at 22lbs and is 30 1/2" long. She's growing like crazy. She's off the charts (so to speak) in those areas for her age.

The girl is definitely keeping us busier, which is to be expected. She's learning new things everyday. We are loving every minute. I am afraid that as soon as this whole crawling thing happens, life is going to change as we know it!

Hailey LOVES the water!

Yes my kid is all up in the shoes, gross I know! BUT LOOK AT HER WANTING TO GET UP AND GO!

Look how proud she is of herself!

Don't worry doggies, Hailey will set you free!
