9 month well check

Bella had her 9 month check up today. Everything looks and is going great. She's still small, but Dr. said it is perfectly normal for breastfed babies and she looks great! She weighed in at 15 pounds 15 oz (10th percentile) and 28.25 inches long (90th percentile).

Bella is crawling everywhere now!! And my friend Jaycie reminded me last night to give her some pots and pans; she had just done the same with her son Morgan and he had a blast. ...And she loves it. She bangs on them with a big spoon. Then with any other toy nearby. Anything to keep her sitting still for two seconds! She is fast!

We had a busy day at the doctors office, then Kroger, then at Cactus for TWO HOURS (they are so slow!) getting the oil changed and car washed. After that and making dinner, I am pooped! I really need to get to bed earlier. Especially since doc can't fix a wake-up time for Bella. I've been in denial, but I think her internal clock is fixed - at 6am on the nose. I keep hoping it is the 4 teeth that are coming in. We'll see once they're all in if the time changes back to 7:00 or 7:30. I've just never been a morning person, but I guess I gotta start. Think I'll start tonight.

Here's us having a self-portrait today:
