She’s 9 months old! Time sure is flying by. It’s hard to believe that in just a few months she’ll be turning 1 and Grady will be turning 3! It seems like just yesterday Grady was a newborn and now I’ve got 2 kids!

Development

She’s a super fast crawler now. She was pretty slow starting out and did this weird legs together crawl, but she’s got it down now and makes a bee line for whatever I don’t want her to have – like cords. She’s now crawling up the stairs, too. She loves it. She tries to go up every chance she gets. And she’s cruising along. Takes little side steps when she’s standing near the couch and our ottoman. She’ll pivot and go between the 2, too. She tried to momentarily let go and balance the other day. She stood for a few seconds before falling. I wonder when she’ll go for her first steps? So exciting!

Eating

We’re still breastfeeding and that’s going very well. I’m still needing to use nursing pads – which is super annoying. At least I know there’s enough there, lol. I don’t remember leaking this long with Grady though. Each baby is different I guess. She’s doing great with solid food. She’s pretty much just eating finger foods and some pouches here and there (so convenient!). She loves mandarin orange segments, sweet potato pieces, and blueberries the most. Oh, and I think some more teeth are about to pop through, too.

Sleeping

Miss Haley. When will you sleep through the night? I don’t think it’ll be any time soon. I have a feeling it will take night weaning her for that to happen. She’s just like Grady. He didn’t sleep through the night until 18 months when he night weaned. She’s up on average about 3 times per night. She wakes up, nurses, and quickly goes back to sleep – so it’s not horrible, but I do miss uninterrupted sleep!

Siblings

Grady’s become very protective of her, especially when we’re around other kids on play dates. He doesn’t like any other kids coming near her that he doesn’t know. He’ll like block their path. It’s kind of funny. I think he’ll be a great big brother. :)

What was your baby doing at 9 months old? Do you have a younger baby? What are they doing now? I’d love to hear!

P.S. Onesie stickers c/o Buddha Bellies // Onesie is from Carters // Headband was a gift so I’m not sure where it’s from. It may be Carters since it matches so well. :)

  1. Aw, she is just gorgeous! My son is 7 now. I think he started crawling around 9 months. I remember freaking out thinking he should be walking, because my mom always said I walked at that age and I thought that was the norm. Honestly, I think she got my age wrong, lol! I think it happened later than that!

  2. Beautiful photos! Sounds like she is going to have a great protector in her brother!

  3. She is adorable!! I love this age!!!
