Emily at 9 months




Emily (aka: Little Tiny),

This month has been our favorite so far (minus the bottle strike), you are the happiest you have ever been and you are so curious and funny!  You are outgoing and brave when we are here at home and you are surrounded by people you know.  As soon as we go somewhere new you clam up and observe everything and everyone around you until you are 100% comfortable and then you are your normal (wild) self.


You are learning your sense of humor and this never gets old.  You'll hide in corners or behind walls and peek around to make us laugh.  You will do anything repeatedly if it gets a laugh from your dad and I.


You have given us quite the fight when it comes to eating.  You don't want your bottle and we have to distract you to get you to eat your big girl food.  You would rather be playing and chasing the cats and dog. Your favorite thing to eat are raspberries, you would have them for every meal if we let you.


You started to crawl this month and took off like a pro!! You are trying to pull up on everything but haven't quite mastered this skill yet- you've done it once and I know you're going to be doing it a lot more very soon. 


Our favorite things this this month are your cuddles and kisses.  You will give a kiss if we ask- always with an open mouth.  You love books, knocking down blocks, chasing the animals, and trying to find anything you aren't supposed to be getting into (cords, remotes, cell phones, and ripping up magazines).

Your least favorite things are getting your diaper changed and having anything taken away from you- this means serious tantrum time.

You have become a very good sleeper (hallelujah!!).  You take two naps a day and you are sleeping from 7-6:30 at night.  We are hoping this continues!




We love you so much sweet girl!!

  1. She's rockin' the ponytail, I love it! Glad to hear she is sleeping great and hope the eating strike comes to an end soon. Open mouth kisses are the best, aren't they?

  7. I keep hearing that 9 months is many parent's favourite month and it definitely fits for your little one!! She sounds like so much fun. I can just picture her purposely hiding behind things then peeking around to make you laugh. That just has to be the cutest thing ever!! Kisses sound great too! Great to hear that she is sleeping well. She is such a beautiful little girl... love the ponytail! :)

  9. I love the wagon picture of her...adorable! I'm sure she's even more adorable when she's sleeping well--yea for Emily!!!!

    Happy 9 months, "Little Tiny"--she's been out longer than she's been in! It's hard to believe!

    Don't you adore the tantrums? That's something we've started at our house and giving her something to replace the thing we took doesn't seem to work because she knows that the item is just behind us somewhere. These little ones are just so smart!

  12. Emily just gets cuter and cuter! Mira also hates to have her diaper change. Too many better things to do!

  13. Ugh she is ridiculously adorable. Hope the food difficulties end soon, but I guess if the trade off is having an awesome time with her and loving every second, then I would say it sounds so worth it!

  14. O my gosh, I have to laugh at her at the 'Y' page of the book. My littlest boy Bennett does the exact same thing with the same book!
