9 month stats

Grace had her 9-month well baby appointment Monday.
She weight 18 lbs, 8 ozs and is 28 inches long.
She is the 50 percentile for weight and height and still has her tiny 25 percentile head.

She got a toe prick and 2 shots. She cried for about 10 seconds. The doctor was impressed by how easier Grace can go from her stomach to her back to sitting up. She's been going it so long and so easily that I forgot it was a milestone! The doctor was also impressed that Grace is cruising. She will pull up on anything - couch, cat, Nolan, table... - and start walking around it. She is starting to climb stairs, but has no idea how to get back down.

She babbles all the time. She moves all the time. She is just HUGE ball of energy squeezed into a tiny body. She so badly wants to be a big kid like her brother. She loves playing with him (until he pushes her away). And she loves stealing his food (until he pushes her away).

This would be a great place to insert a 9 month picture of Grace. Some one should take one....
