Happy 9 months, Vida Magnolia! I’m officially in First Birthday mental planning mode. Unbelievable.
AGE | 9 months
STATS | 15 lbs – she gained her weight back after being in the hospital. She’s a healthy 27 inches tall.
WORDS | A lot of babbling and “Dec-Dec.”
FAVORITE FOOD | Seems like everything. This girl just likes to try new things. Declan shares crumbs of his muffins with her; it’s the cutest. She’s way better at holding food now and bringing her hand to her mouth. Still waking up at night to drink milk.
FAVORITE THINGS | Being carried around. I mean this little lady will not let me pass her without picking her up when I walk into the house from work. She loves watching other kids play at the park and the museum. She loves cuddling with her big brother. The first person she looks for in the mornings is her favorite guy, Declan.
LEAST FAVORITE THINGS | If we take something from her that she shouldn’t be playing with; she’ll rock her head at you.
SIGNATURE MOVES | Stretchiiiiiing to reach for things while we’re carrying her. She stretched so far the other day she knocked down a cup of coffee at my father-in-law’s house. She means business.
This month her personality has really developed. She’s equal parts sweet and tough. We nicknamed her Warrior Princess. Happy 9 months to our Warrior Princess Vida Magnolia!
