Happy 9 Months Melissa

Monday, March 17, 2008

Today Melissa turned 9 months old. She has been a busy little girl. I didn't know how much fun this age would be, but it's just keeping getting better and better. Melissa can pull herself up really well and walk from one end of the couch to the other with out even thinking twice about it. She loves standing up in her bed. We had to lower her bed to the lowest level and I still don't think that is low enough.She is eating more thicker foods stage 3 foods. She loves real bananas, not the baby food ones. She also likes the Gerber puffs. At first she didn't know what to think of them, but she can eat them up fast.
Melissa had her 9 month check up today and here are the measurements. Weight 21lbs 3oz (90%), Height 28 1/2 inches (75%) and Head 44cm (50%)

She did wake up this in the middle of the night with fever and congestion. At her appointment she didn't have any fever, that a good thing.

We took Melissa to have her 9 months pictures made. The pink dress is her Easter dress.
