9 Months + 2 days


The nine-month milestone is a little special because now it means that Baby Sis has been living on this earth just as long as she was living inside of me:-) She is 16.4 lbs (10% group) and 27.5" (50% group). The ped wants her to gain more weight but with her chunky little rolls, I don't see why. It may just be that she was sick for the last 10 days with a bad cold/cough and she lost a little. Hmm. Oh well. She's definitely more vocal about her likes/dislikes and I will soon be weaning her as she's almost lost interest in breastfeeding unless it's a random 2am wake-up or her first morning feed. Once she's ten months, I'll start feeding her whole milk.

She's not crawling yet but she rolls around the house like a champ and loves to pull up on her toys with some assistance. The big difference from Russell is her love of swings. Even now, he's not a fan of them. Her, on the other hand, is just thrilled with the motion. Ah... our wild child;-)

Happy 9 months Camille. Rolling and swinging, sound like a wild child to me!

She is SO beautiful! I want to hang out with her more. I feel like I need to get more acquainted with her and little miss Sophie both. :)

So cute!! Happy 9 month birthday! Do you think that she's lost interest in nursing because of teething, maybe? I know that Kai struggles sometimes because he's got teeth coming in. Some well-timed Tylenol seems to help. Another thing I've noticed with Kai is that he cannot be distracted at all, or he won't eat. And then, oh man is he cranky!!

Funny - Kai's already two pounds heavier than Camille and he's two months younger than her! Crazy kids.

She looks perfectly healthy to me!! what does the pedi want you to do, force feed her? why would you do that. I wouldn't worry about it at all!

Happy 9 months Camille.

So cute! I just found a pic of Russell at 8 months (with his pumpkin shirt on) and just had to smile because he was just as chunky cute as his sister! ~April
