Stats: Our scientific guess is 16 lbs. 6 oz. and 27 inches tall.
Clothes: Shopping with you in the future is going to be incredibly difficult. Most of your clothes are 6 months, but you still wear some 3 month short-sleeved onesies… and you’re about to graduate to 9 month pants. Just… wow.
Nicknames: Your daddy calls you Gorgeous. That always makes you (and me) smile. 🙂
Sleep: I almost don’t want to write this for fear of it changing. Between 8-8:30 p.m. every night, you are a Miss. Grouchypants. We have to let you fuss, and try to find ways to keep you awake until 8:30 p.m., or we’re in for a very early morning. If you make it until 8:30 p.m., you sleep until 6:30 a.m. We can handle this. Keep at it, kid.
Favorites: You love your hand. It is always in your mouth, which makes for a constant drooly mess. You now notice and reach for the cats, and smile every time they get close enough to you. Let’s just say they’re in trouble as soon as you’re mobile.
Other Fun Facts:
– You’re officially eating baby food. So far, your favorites are sweet potatoes and pears. You’re not sure about carrots, which is not very dbunny of you. Unfortunately you’ve learned how to blow raspberries when you eat, resulting in a giant mess at every meal. It’s hilarious, but we’re trying to not let you know that.
– You’re a Disney baby. When Mickey Mouse walks on screen at the beginning of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, your eyes light up and you just smile. Thank you for justifying a return trip to Walt Disney World sooner rather than later.
– Indiana has experienced approximately one day of Spring this year. We’ve made the most of it by taking walks around the neighborhood and playing on the playground. You love it just as much as I do. If it ever gets warm again, I can tell we’re going to have a fun summer at the neighborhood pool. Momma needs a tan. 😉
– You are finally interacting more and more with people. You smile at everyone you meet, you talk all the time, and have already learned to “play” with your bestie. It’s apparent that you two will be trouble very, very soon.

This mama needs a tan, too…and if the 10 day forecast down in Gulf Shores doesn’t start looking up, I’m going to be one unhappy lady drinking all the margaritas on vacation…haha! I love these posts. I wish that I would have found the time to blog when Stella was a baby. I still have a super long page in my notes app in my phone with details like this, but I haven’t done anything with the info. And we have had the same problem as far as clothes. Stella was off the charts and is still in the 95th percentile in height but she is a skinny minny. We had a bazillion hand me down jeans from Children’s Place that she couldn’t wear because the ones that actually fit her in the waster were high waters! Leggings have been our friend! 🙂
