9 months old already?! What?
I know…I can hardly believe it either. But, it’s true. My sweet, happy, kissable baby girl is 9 months old!
Spencer at 9 months (please go look at his eyelashes even then!)…
and Maxwell at 9 months…
It’s fun to go back and read the 9 month updates on the boys because things are so similar now. Samantha naps 2 times a day – 9:00 and 1:00. She goes to bed around 6:45pm and we get her up around 6:30 am. She has her pacis and her lovies and couldn’t be happier in her crib. We always say she’s having a party in her bed! She’s nursing 4 times a day and is starting to eat real food despite having no teeth yet! So far, bananas have been the biggest hit but she’s also gobbled up butternut squash, muffins and a variety of other things.
She’s a crawling machine. She can get on all 4s and will get across the room in no time. Her favorite thing to go get are her brothers’ stinky dirty shoes on the floor! eew!
She really is happy all the time. Well, except when someone besides me tries to hold her! 🙂 She’s definitely on a momma kick and I don’t mind one bit. She’s my best girl.
She’s developed the cutest little giggle and laughs the most at her silly brothers. Spencer can especially get her going. He loves it when I put her in his bed with him. He’ll get right in her face and always say “tap tap baby!” I have no idea what that means but it’s really cute. Both he and Maxwell just think she’s the best thing in the world. They’re very protective of her too and help me watch her to make sure she doesn’t get herself into trouble. I hear “no no baby!” a lot!
Hanging with Honey Bunny!
Her best trick right now? Waving bye-bye! She waves all day and it is precious! I think she even said bye-bye the other day while waving! for real!
Every day with this bundle of love is better than the last. We are so, so thankful to have Baby Mantha in our family!!
We love you sweet Samantha!
