I posted about all of her sickness during her 8th month and her 9th month continued on the same trend for a while. She finally got over her second ear infection but before she finished that round of antibiotics she started running a fever that lasted for several days. The day the fever ended she broke out in a horrible rash all over her head, face and torso. We went back to the pediatrician for the 9th time I believe in a month and a half and she said immediately she had roseola. It is just a virus that has several days of high fever followed by a measles looking rash for several day. Brooklyn had a textbook case. Once the rash cleared up she was back to her normal self. Since then she has been pretty healthy, thankfully! She started having a runny nose this week but hopefully that doesn't turn into anything else.
We had her 9 month well check up today and she checked out great! She is ahead of schedule on several developmental things and is growing great.
At 9 months Brooklyn:
*weighs 18 lbs 5 oz (50th %)
*is 27 in tall (25th %)
*is wearing mostly size 9 month clothes but starting some 12 months as well.
*is wearing size 4 Honest diapers
*is nursing 4-5 times a day and getting 1 - 4 oz. bottle of formula before bed.
*is eating 3 meals a day with us. She loves pretty much anything I give her but is especially fond of chicken, turkey, fruits, puffs, yogurt melts, and oatmeal.
*for most of the monthstill woke up once in the night to eat but the last 2 nights has slept for 12 hours!! WOOHOO!! She goes to bed at around 7 pm and has been waking up at around 6:45 am.
*is still taking 2 naps a day. The first one is usually around 10 am for an hour and then the second one is around 1 pm and is anywhere from 1-2 hours.
*is crawling all over the place and is in to everything.
*is pulling up on any and everything she can.
*loves pulling toys out of the toy basket and will sit and play by her self for extended amounts of time.
*loves bath time, especially with her big sister.
*started saying Dada this week and is making more and more consonant sounds so I know the word will start building up soon!
*still loves her paci but will occasionally suck her thumb as well.
*has 4 teeth. the 2 top middle and 2 bottom middle.
*gives the sweetest open mouth baby kisses on command. I love it.
*will typically start dancing when she hears a song.
I that about covers it for 9 months. I can't believe she will be 1 in just 3 months. I have already started thinking about what I want to do for her party :D. This is such a fun stage with her. I just think she is sweetest little thing ever. She has the most gorgeous blue eyes. I am so thankful for all the love and joy she brings to our family!
