9 months

Ella turned 9 months on Friday and we had her check up that morning. She is a growing girl! So much has changed this month and life definitely looks different with a very mobile baby. Ella started army crawling around 7 1/2 months and I guess she got pretty good at that and wasn't so interested in crawling on her hands and knees, but that has changed very quickly this month! About a week ago she took off and is EVERYWHERE on those little hands and knees. She is getting very fast, too! Also, around 8 1/2 months she got very interested in wanting to stand on everything she could reach. Nap time definitely looks different since every now and then she will stand up and call mama or dada...good thing she is really cute. 

She has also grown a lot since her last check up. She weighs 17 lbs. 6 oz and is in the 50th percentile for weight! She is our petite little one, but we are so thankful that she is continuing to grow. She loves solid food SO much and eats just about anything. 

This month she has been saying a lot of mama, dada, and other babbling and lately she has started saying nana....which my mom loves! 

This month has been filled with a lot of milestones and learning how life looks different with a crawler. We are loving each stage and seeing her grow brings us so much joy! 

Here are some random pictures from the month and from her monthly pictures...

 Pulling up on everything!
 James was able to work his magic and get the camera and flashlight to work together so we could capture this little snuggle bug and how she likes to be close to her sheep and bunny at night. 
 Happy October!
 Such a goofball!
 Always loves that thumb!
 I think we might have more teeth coming in...
 Loves her bunny!
 Reading...lots and lots of reading around here
Loves her baby

Here's to hoping time will slow down just a little....
