At 9 months, she is weighing in at about 20 pounds, but we will get all her measurements next week at the doctor when she gets her shots. Nora has learned lots of fun new things this month and her personality is blooming to the max! These may not all be milestones per the doctor, but they are milestones in this Mommy’s heart!
1. Crawling – just a few days after she turned 8 months old, she took off after a trail of Cheerios and hasn’t looked back since. She is incredibly fast on all kinds of surfaces and can now go and get things for herself. It’s fun watching her pick out which toys she wants to play with.
2. Clapping – well, it’s only the cutest thing ever. She started out clapping to music, but now she claps to show her approval of something she has done. She is a little prideful of her accomplishments, so she claps a lot 🙂
3. Waving – if you say “hi” or “bye-bye” to her, she’ll give you the sweetest, chubby wave you’ve ever seen (and then clap, because she is proud of herself). Even if she sees someone she is interested in, she will start waving to get their attention. Lots of waving going on while we truck through the isles of Wal-Mart. I think she is practicing for when she becomes Cinderella at Disney World 🙂
8. Lip smacking – this goes on all the time. And its adorable.
