Harper is now 9 months. We went in for her 9 month visit this morning and found out that she is . . .
27.5 inches, a little under the 50th percentile
17 lbs. 9 oz, around the 25th percentile
She has only gained 1 pound since her 6 month appointment, but her doctor said that this isn't unusual for breastfed babies around this age. The doctor was a little surprised that she isn't crawling. He kept asking, she's not even scooting? Or rolling? Nope. We are now under orders to sit her in the middle of the room every day with her toys beyond her reach to see if she'll be motivated to move. I doubt it's going to happen anytime soon, she's pretty content just sitting there.
Her latest skill is that she now not only enjoys removing blocks out of the box, but now she likes to put them back in.She also gets really excited about copying us and saying "da da da da da" really loud. I am relatively sure that she now understands the following words:
I'm not really sure about anything else.
Harper is really a great baby and we feel so lucky to be able to hang out with her everyday!
