Nine months? Are you kidding me? Remi is three months away from turning one! Where has time gone?!?
Our little Rem is just turning into little miss personality! She has been so cheesey and silly lately, and it's been so fun to see that side of her come out! She's always been a pretty happy baby, but the silliness is a new thing and I'm loving it!
We've been having a few little struggles with the little Rem lately. She started trying to wake up for the day around 6:00 a.m. Not okay. I've been wondering if my milk is starting to drop a bit, and she's just more hungry earlier in the day. Seems like it'd be an easy fix, but girlfriend STILL refuses to take a bottle! We're going to have to keep working on that one! Since being on vacation the past two weeks, she's also started having multiple nites where she wakes up to eat during the nite. Soooo not normal!
We do have Remi enjoying her baby food now, though! She still averages about half a jar at each feeding, or two halves if she's having a fruit and a veggie, but she eats it willingly and I think that she's starting to like it! She also really loves her puffs, yogurt melts, and mum mums. We've started giving her quite a bit of real food, though, now. It's so fun to get to that point! I've loved watching her try new foods.
Remi has five teeth now! She's got three along the bottom, and her two front teeth came in right before Christmas! We all thought it was kind of funny that she got her two front teeth for Christmas. :) As I've said before, Remi really doesn't do well with teething. Along with her two front teeth, she's got at least three more teeth along the top that are white and looking ready to pop through any day. Before those two front teeth came in, we had quite a rough week with a very needy, clingy baby who only wanted her mommy. If it's this bad with these teeth, I can only imagine how horrible her molars will be! But, she looks so cute with her two front teeth dropping down. It really changes the way she looks! Cute girl!
I really think Remi is going to crawl soon! She definitely wants to move, and she is trying really hard to figure out her body and how to use it to get where she wants. I can't believe she is going to be mobile soon! She and Reece are going to have a blast together!
The snuggling has stuck around! She loves to lay her head on my shoulder when I sing to her before bed. She also has started doing it when I'm holding her and she is feeling shy when someone talks to her. It is sweet and cute, and I don't ever want it to end!
Remi still uses her pointer finger as her primary 'feeler' when she is feeling and touching things. It is really dainty and cute when she does it.
Remi and Reece continue to just love each other and have so much fun playing together. I love to hear them laugh and think it's going to be so neat to watch their relationship grow as they get older and understand each other more.
At nine months Remi likes:
- watching Reece/other kids
- baths and splashing
- baby food!
- 'real' food: cheese, bread, crackers
- toys: laptop, seahorse, balls, plastic animals
- having air blown in her face
- playing with paper
- getting kissed on her tummy and neck
- being silly
- feeling things
- being held
- being sung to
At nine months Remi doesn't like:
- being left alone for too long
She's just the sweetest baby girl, and I'd sure appreciate it if someone would make time slow down a little bit so we can enjoy our little baby awhile longer!
