9 month check up

We took Sophie for her 9 month check up this week. She was so good at the doctor's office! In fact, she cried when the doctor left the room. I think she really likes him! All is still going well. She's growing like she should and there were no concerns at all. The doctor said she can eat anything now except for fish that is high in mercury, raw honey, and nuts. Otherwise, she is free to go! He also said that we need to start practicing more with a sippy cup because she'll stop using a bottle in just 3 short months. It is really unbelievable that my baby has grown so quickly!

She now weighs 20lbs, 4 oz (75th percentile) and is 28 and 3/4 inches long (90th percentile). Her head circumference is 44 1/2 cm (60th percentile). She did have to get a finger prick to be sure that she's not anemic and the last in the series of Hepatitis B shots. She was not happy when we left. Here she is once we got home.

 Last night, I decided she could have some cheese pizza for dinner. She loved it and got very messy in the process! She had a good bath afterwards! 

I feel like I always have to mention how fun it is to watch her grow and change, and it still is! She is such a funny little girl and she knows it. She knows how to make her daddy and me laugh and melt our hearts. She's also quite a sassy little child, but can be so sweet and lovey. We are so excited to celebrate her first Christmas this year and soon after, her first birthday!
