Our sweet Emma is 9 months old today.
In the morning when Emma wakes up, this is how I find her. Standing and waiting for me to get her.
For breakfast lately we have been making this for Emma. Baby oatmeal with cinnamon applesauce warmed up. She loves it and eats the whole bowl.
She eats best when Carly isn't in the room or when she is standing right next to me. Emma LOVES watching Carly or following her where ever she goes.
Emma loves: Carly, daddy, mommy, eating, being outside, chewing on a brush, leaves, walks in the wagon, paper, baths, being held, playing with Carly and the toy kitchen.
Emma does NOT like: being left when we go into another room, her car seat, getting toys taken away from her, getting dressed (she is super wiggly).
Emma can now eat almost anything we give her. It is so nice that she doesn't choke! (Except a piece of Dorito I gave her yesterday :( She gums food really well so she can swallow it. She has recently tried and loves rice, spaghetti, fettuccine alfredo, salmon, green bean casserole.
New things with Emma: she has three teeth! You can see two of them in the picture below.
She can also walk with her walker! She goes slow and doesn't have any balance, but she can do it!
The only baby food that we buy for her are her vegetables. Just because raw vegetables that we eat are too hard for her and we want to make sure she is getting her veggies.
Her favorite snacks: yogurt, string cheese, cheerios, blueberries, bananas, grapes, watermelon, veggies straws,
|I always think that I put these Halloween window decorations up high enough. She reaches so high!!|
Emma has been doing so well with her sippy cup! She just drinks water out of it. She loves when Carly leaves her empty sippy cup on the ground, she will crawl over and suck on it.
Sleeping for Emma has been getting better. She sleeps from 7p.m. to 1:00a.m. and then wakes up again at 6a.m. Sometimes she will go back to sleep at 6:00a.m. but sometimes she is up for the day! But will take a nap about 8:00, 10:30, 1:00, and then again at 4:30. Her naps are only about 30 minutes. But when she wakes up she is happy and ready to play!
|The only way I get a shower, putting her in this jumperoo. It has been a lifesaver!|
I love my three teeth, smiley, grass eating, slobbery, nine month old baby!
