Emma - 9 Months

Height: 26 inches
Weight: 16.5 pounds

Emma chunked up!! She gained 1.5 pounds this month and moved from the 6% to the 22%. What a chunk!

But Olivia was 2.5 inches taller than her at this age. She might be a squatty chunk.

Sleep: Sometimes she sleeps through the night. Sometimes she wakes up once. I feel like we are getting there.

Eating: This chunker is eating 35+ ounces a day. Which is a LOT! Plus all table foods. She has her pincher grasp so she can pick up small bites of food. Also, dog hair and tiny pieces of mulch. And a rock once.

Milestones: She's pulling up completely and walking around the furniture. Climbing the stairs. She drinks out of a straw sippy cup and can feed herself a baby food packet and her bottle. When did she get so big!

Clothes / Diapers: 9-12 months and size 3 diapers

Best Moment of the Month:  When Emma officially learned to pull up. She is so happy now that she can play around with Olivia and look up over the coffee table, or whatever is in the way of her view. 

Parent of the Month: This one goes to me. I left the girls in the playroom for not even two minutes to put dinner in the oven. Olivia excitedly yells, "mommy, come quick or you'll miss it! Good job Emma!" I ran down the hall to find Emma up three stairs! Time to use the bottom baby gait too. 

Favorites: Emma has a little table like this to stand at while playing. We still love our ikea high chair. Other than that, we don't use many baby items anymore. Emma just wants to hang out with her big sister and do the things she does. 

My favorite is when Emma laughs. If she's excited, she kicks her feet. And when something is really funny, she scrunches up her face and her eyes and laughs like she's sniffing / hyperventilating. So cute!!

Emma baby, please stop growing up!


  1. What a big girl!! I feel like these 2nd kiddos blow through the milestones to keep up with their big sisters. Olivia is such a good little cheerleader. Please figure out a way to slow down time because these kiddos are growing up too fast. Hope you had a great weekend with your girls (and Dan:)

  2. Oh, she is so cute and pretty. So lovely and wears a beautiful fashionable pink dress . Here is to inform that I have seen many fashionable kids wears like this on boutiqueken . She is looking so cute wnd wonderful in this look and outfit. The butterfly on her head is so wonderful.
