Watch Me Grow: 9 Months

Evelyn turned 9 months old on October 10th.  Yep, over a week ago.  Better late than never with an update though!


Evelyn had a busy month.  She finally got her first tooth!  Unfortunately, that hasn’t meant that she’s sleeping any better.

Thankfully she’s a good napper and a very happy baby.


Evelyn started waving this month, and loves waving at everyone in the house and everyone sitting near us in church. 

She is still content with her army crawl.  We’ve seen her get up on all fours and take one or two crawling movements at a time, but then she goes right back down to her belly.

Girlfriend babbles up a storm.  I really think we’ll be hearing a first word soon.  Evelyn is a daddy’s girl, so I think Jarrod may get the first word this go-round.


Evelyn also likes to sing along with the choir at church.  Luckily she stops when the songs end!

We are totally off reflux medication.  We also decided at Evelyn’s 9 month appointment to try to slowly move her onto a gentle milk based formula to see how she does.  Our fingers are crossed that this goes well!

I think we’re going to have another gymnastics fan in the house.  Evelyn loves when I help her do front rolls and already knows to tuck her chin!

She is a mischievous little baby and loves getting into things that she’s not supposed to; namely paper, cords, and dog toys.  Who needs baby toys?

I’m not sure how we have already made it through three-quarters of a year with this little munchkin.  We have enjoyed (almost) every minute of it!


Weight: 20 pounds, 8 ounces (78th percentile)
Height: 28 1/4 inches (39th percentile)
She’s a bit of a roly poly!
Drinking: Between 25-30 ounces of formula a day and about 4-6 ounces of water
Eating: Still getting mostly purees, but she’s also eating some table food too.  She loves grilled chicken!
Clothes: 9 months
Shoes: I have finally started putting shoes on Evelyn’s feet!  Problem is that she’s between sizes.  2’s are too small, and 3’s fall off of her feet (unless it’s boots).
Diapers: Huggies Little Snugglers size 3
Sounds/Words: No words yet, but lots of babbles.  I think we’re getting close!
Teeth: One!  (But you may be able to spy a second tooth that made it’s debut a day after she turned 9 months old)

Adorable. Time is flying with all these little babies in blog land!!

Look at her smile!!

She is adorable! And the more roly poly a baby is, the better :)
I loooove the name Evelyn. We are 90% set on a girl's name if baby #4 is a girl, but Evelyn is the contending name…and we always tend to waffle towards the end, so who knows!! So pretty :)

So cute, I know I say it every month but she's growing so fast!

Laura Darling said...

What a doll! I love that she sings at church!

Courtney B said...

Oh sweet girl.... she is such a beauty!! But I wish they didn't grow so fast... Mia will be 2 in December! These kids, man!

She is so cute! I love when you do your posts because it is so fun to see how her and Grace are growing similarly and hitting different milestones too.
