9 Months

WOW...where have we been and what have we been doing?? Well, Kynlie turned 9 months old a little over a week ago. I still can't believe how time is flying by us. I'm loving every minute of it!
The weekend Kynlie turned 9 months, she got sick. She ran up to a 103.6 fever (scared me to death). So we didn't do much but take her temp, give Tylenol and Motrin, and rock my sweet baby all weekend. I had to miss 2 days of work due to her being sick, but I wouldn't have wanted her to be with anyone but mommy while feeling bad. Sunday she slept ALL day long in my arms. It was a wonderful feeling to sit and hold her all day, I just wish she wouldn't have been so sick.

Is that not just the sweetest picture of her sleeping in my arms?

Well the week went on and she got a lot better. We had her 9 month check up on Friday the 12th. It went really well. We have a tinny tiny tot on our hands. So, she only weighs 16lb 15oz and 27 1/2 inches long. She's only gained 10oz and 1 inch. She didn't grow much since her "6th month" check up at 7 months. But the doctor is perfectly fine with it. He does not see anything wrong. He did say, he would like to see a growth spurt by 12 months. All in all the doctors visit was great, NO SHOTS!

This getting ready to go to the doctors visit. I just love her watermelon outfit!

Saturday, I went and got a pedicure with my mom. Long time over due! It was wonderful to get out and enjoy a little pampering. Then we headed over to Wal-Mart (of course) and shopped. I bought Kynlie a "walker/stroller" It's for her to put her doll in and for her to use as a walking devise, as she learns how to walk. She pulls up on everything, so I thought this was perfect for her.

How cute is this? I put Minny Mouse in there for her...she loves Minny Mouse!
She sits in front and plays with it more than she pulls up on it. I think she gets a little scared when it starts to roll, so she sits down really quickly. But I do think she likes it. She played with it all weekend.

Sunday, we went and had lunch at Chili's and then we came home to relax for a little bit. Later that afternoon, we pulled out Kynlie's blow up pool and filled it up so she could "swim" (sit) in it and splash around. Daddy mowed and I just sat on the hot driveway and watched my girl play in this hot Texas summer weather (which by the way, is my favorite time of the year). It can't get any better than this! We "red necked" it and only put her in her swimmer diapers and no bathing suit (with lots of sunscreen). She still looks like a cutie pie!

What is Kynlie doing at 9 months:

She is crawling all over the house
She is pulling up on everything she can
She eats everything we feed her
She still goes to bed at 8:30
She still sleeps through the night
She is still in her bed, in her room
She smiles and laughs at everyone and everything
She love puppies
Her favorite sound to make is GRRRRRR GRRRRRRR (it's so funny)
She still loves her bath time
She walks along side the coffee table by holding on
She says Da Da all the time
She is very interested in my mouth and nose.
She is starting to throw fits when she gets upset or something is taken away from her
She is still wearing 3-6 month clothes
She is still a breast fed baby
We have moved her up to number 3 foods
She loves her Gerber bits
She is very active and hyper
She talks up a storm and carries on conversations with her self all the time. (so stinking cute)

She's growing up on us. I love everyday with her. She's an amazing little girl to be around. I'm so looking forward to her 1 year party. I'm already planning it! Only 3 months to go.

Sooooo CUTE!!! It looks like you guys have so much fun at home with your little Kynlie. I love her little pool. I don't think they had that when my kids were babies (you know, such a shallow pool). She looks like such a happy little baby!!!
