9 Months!!!!

That's right.  Nine months.  Nine whole months.  I think I might pass out because there is no way my little bug can be nine months old already.  But as I look through all of her pictures, I have to admit to myself that it's true.  Time does really fly by with a baby. 

Kylie definitely is her own little person now.  She will reach for you when she wants you (which just about melts my heart into a big ol' puddle every time) and now waves hello to people by reaching one arm out as far as she can. 

She is fully mobile now.  Crawls around like there is no tomorrow.  Currently, she is doing laps around the living room.  She can get up to a sitting position from her belly or her back, and can pull herself up to standing by holding on to something.  Ky is even trying to stand now without holding onto anything as well.

Kylie babbles up a storm still.  She is adding more and more sounds to her repertoire, and loves hearing her own voice.  She can say mama, dada, no, and hey right now.  Ky loves singing along to the radio or one of our ipods.  Her favorites are classic rock and punk right now.

As of yesterday Kylie is 17 pounds 3 ounces (25th percentile), 27 1/2 inches tall (50th percentile), and her head is 17 inches around (75th percentile).  My long skinny baby :)

She is still breastfeeding and eating formula.  She is eating more and more solids and loves texture and foods she can feed herself.  Kylie loves eating any kind of Mexican food, eggs, fruits, veggies, beans, and rice.  She's not a big fan of meat.  Ky loves any kind of food that she can feed herself, like puffs, bread, and tortillas.  We are trying to get her to drink out of sippy cups but she is still loyal to her bottles.

We are full time cloth diapering Ky now.  I uses a part of our tax return money to buy 14 more cloth diapers, 3 wet bags, and 2 pail liners.  We have already saved so much money from not having to buy disposables.  Even Rex has jumped on the bandwagon and uses them no problem (he even likes the ones with snaps better than the Velcro!)  I'll try to have a post up soon about our journey into the world of cloth diapering.

Ky has her two front bottom teeth right now.  They look so cute, but they are definitely sharp!  She went through one week of biting everything in sight but luckily got over that quickly. 

She is wearing clothes that are anywhere from 6 to 12 months now.  I keep waiting for the weather to warm up so she can wear all of her cute summer clothes that her grandparents keep giving her!

Ky Bug is still sleeping through the night.  She will usually go down at 8 pm and always wakes up exactly at 7 every morning.  Her naps are not as normal.  On a good day she will take a one hour nap at 10 am and 2 pm, on other days she will take one 2 hour nap in the afternoon.

All and all, Kylie is a wonderful baby.  Rex and I are spoiled by her, and couldn't have been more blessed with a better baby.  She's our whole world and we wouldn't know what to do without her anymore.
