9 Months

Rose turned 9 months on the 12th. This has been such a fun month and I feel like Rose has learned so much!
She loves table food and is quickly getting tired of baby food. She has been eating toast, cheese toast, waffles, mandarin oranges, strawberries, grapes, peaches, mango, banana, pear, peaches, peas, green beans, steamed squash and carrots, vienna sausage, cheese, cheerios, puffs, yogurt, and she even tried lasagna (which she looooved!)
I bought her a little play set of food that came in a mini shopping basket and that is by far her favorite toy right now. It keeps her occupied for what seems like hours on end!

Rose crawls a little bit. She scoots a lot and gets around her little play area pretty well. She's starting to show interest in pulling up and can pull up on her knees easily. She really likes her activity table toys that allow her to pull up. A few weeks ago she figured out how to push herself up to a sitting position when on her tummy.
Rose is napping 1-2 times a day. She usually takes a decent morning or mid-day nap (1-2 hours), and sometimes takes an afternoon nap.
She has finally mastered sleeping through the night!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!! Around her 8 month birthday, Rose started sleeping 7-7. It was amazing! Now she goes to bed around 6:30 and will sleep until 7:00 or 7:30. I can't tell you what a full night's sleep does for this pregnant mama!
Rose still loves bathtime and she now bathes in the big girl bathtub. She creates a wave pool with all the splashing she does and she loves pulling the drain out!
Rose imitates me when I shake my head "no" and when I stick out my tongue. Its so much fun to see her face when she realizes she is copying me and I get so excited! Oh, she also learned how to click her tongue and she'll copy me when I do that too.
(She doesn't hold her own bottle...she was just practicing one day and I thought it was a cute pic)

She loves the mobile in her bed and she's learned to turn it on by herself. When I get her from a nap, she is usually sitting up in the crib, with her paci, watching her mobile or playing with her toys. Its really cute how she entertains herself when she wakes up. Sometimes she pulls it down into her crib so I might have to take it away :(

Rose has 4 teeth now. She just got the top middle teeth this week.

Ok, I think I'll spare you the rest of the details! I just wanted to write down all the new things Rose is doing at this very fun age!
Rose, Mommy and Daddy love you more than anything in the world and we think you are the most special thing on earth. We can't wait to see you grow and change during the rest of your first year!!

@ the mobile. We have that one too and you can just take the stick/mobile part out of the music base so that it is still a music box. Chambers loves his still!
