9 Month Statistics

Alex's 9 Month Statistics:
Height: 28.5 inches (80th percentile)
Weight: 20lbs 14oz (82nd percentile)

Alex did so well at her doctor's appointment yesterday! She was talking, and singing to the doctor who was impressed with her vocals even while Alex tried to take her stethoscope. Alex also tried to roll off the examination table but luckily there were enough people there to prevent it. We were really happy that Alex was up to date on her vaccinations so that she didn't have to have any shots! Hurrah!!Alex is such a happy baby especially when she's singing :) I just can't believe how big she's getting and that she'll be 1 year old in only three short months!!

Week 40

Week 40 Updates:
1. TEETH!! Alex's first two teeth have broken through her gums this week. She has been pretty good for the most part and we didn't even realize that she was teething until Grandma Prusso pointed it out on Saturday after the first tooth had broken through. Tuesday was a pretty hard day for little Alex since that is the day that her second tooth broke through but I think that she is handling it like a champ!
2. Alex's hair is starting to lay down flat!
3. Whenever we go to pick her up, Alex will now lift her arms to us which is so stinkin' cute!! 
4. We get to celebrate Daddy's birthday as a family for the first time (today actually).

9 Months Old

Today our beautiful little Alexandria turned 9 months old!! I can't believe it! She is such a funny girl and we are so happy that she is in our family! Today was especially great because we found that Alex's first tooth has come in!! No wonder she has been so grumpy lately...She is growing so fast and it's hard to believe that in three short months, she'll be turning 1. Where did the time go??? We are so blessed to have this beautiful girl in our lives and we are loving every minute.

Week 39

Alex playing with the computer chair!

Week 39 Updates:
1. She's here, she's there, she's everywhere! Alex is mobile she still just can't go forwards yet. She has thoroughly explored our bedroom and the downstairs. She especially likes going under our computer chair. Its really cute to look up and find her in funny places. 
2. We had the first play date at our house this week and ti was a lot of fun! The babies seemed to enjoy rolling around the room and grabbing each others faces (mostly Alex grabbing other babies faces). Hopefully we can host more play dates in the future.  
3. It's amazing how fast she's growing and how fast she's growing out of her clothes! She's starting to grow out of her 9 month pj's and she is starting to fit into her 12 month pants! I'm not sure why she is so long since Chris and I aren't exactly tall.

Week 38

Week 38 Updates:
1. Alex celebrated her first Easter and got a cute new outfit!
2. She has learned how to clap. It's so cute!!
3. She still loves to move about a room by scooting around. She is also now pushing up on her knees and rocking back and forth. I think that she will be crawling around soon and not just scooting!

Week 37

Week 37 Update:
1. Alex went swinging for the first time this week and she wasn't quite sure about it.
2. Although she is not crawling forward, she is "army crawling" (crawling with her arms only, not her legs) backwards and she can change direction pretty well. 
3. She has decided that rolling over is pretty fun. She has started doing it more and more and she will often roll over several times in a row.
