Jayla ~ 9 Months

Jayla is 9 months old! We can't believe that in 3 short months, she will be 1!

Jayla loves to smile for the camera - the problem is getting her to sit still! She is constantly on the move!
Gizmo decided to hop into the picture too!

She loves to walk ...

... and is incredibly proud of herself that she can do it with her toy!
And, if we turn our backs for half of a second, this is what we often find ...
... and she is once again, incredibly proud of herself that she can crawl into the chair and stand up on it.
What is new with Jayla?

Jayla ...

... weighs about 22 pounds.

... wears size 3 diapers and mostly 12-month clothes.

... loves to eat. I think I have mentioned this 9 months in a row. :) She is especially loving table food! She will eat about anything we give her. She still needs quite a bit of help to pick it up, but she loves to eat it! She also LOVES puffs. She can sit and feed herself puffs for the longest time. She gets very excited when we put them in front of her.

... takes her bottle well, but we can't always figure out how much to give her. Sometimes she'll want 4 ounces, and the next time she wants 8. There really isn't any consistency on when she wants a smaller/larger bottle. Daycare says the same thing. Some days she'll drink all 8 ounce bottles, and the next day she won't finish 4 ounces. We're not worried though - she's healthy and obviously getting plenty of food!

... loves to drink water from a sippy cup. Between water in a sippy cup and puffs, she can stay entertained for a while in the high chair.
... is on the move all. of. the. time. We cannot get her to sit still! Right now her favorite place to go is to the steps. She is very fast at crawling up the steps! She will cheer for herself. :)
... knows how to wave and clap her hands when we ask her to, and she always does it with the biggest smile!

... enjoys playing with blocks, her computer, books, the farm set/tractor, the Elmo doctor kit (which Jordyn so nicely allows her to play with), and her basketball hoop.

... wants to do everything that Jordyn does!

... has been a little hit or miss with sleeping lately. Some nights are really good and others we are up 2-5 times.

... is enjoying swimming lessons. She has gone twice. The first night wasn't great, but the second time was! She loved it!

... can make anyone smile with the sparkle in her blue eyes and her gorgeous smile!

Happy 9-Months, Jayla! :)
