9 Months

9 months!
It makes me sad to say Hadley is 9 months old.

I could have had another baby in this amount of time.
That's a crazy thought.

Everything has happened so fast, I can't really remember it.

I can't even remember our life without Miss H.
She is such a great blessing.
We have had our hard days but, being a mom has been amazing!

Hadley's 9 month achievements:

-Weight: 20 lbs. 3oz.
-Height: 27 in. long
The Dr. said she is highly advanced for her age (almost walking, talking, etc) That made me feel a little good inside that she is learning so well. Lets hope that's how it is as she gets older.
-Stands alone
-Tries to walk
-Says "yaya" (pretty sure its dada)
-Loves to crawl thru &under chairs, legs, etc.
-Carries things in her mouth like a dog
-Plays "Peek-a-boo" by herself with anything that she can cover her face with (blankets, clothes, dish towels, etc)
-When she gets mad she grunts really loud
-Now shakes her head and does what looks like a push up when she 'dances'/hears music
-When she has things in her hands, she squeezes as hard as she can
-Climbs!! (OH NO!)
-Likes to grab, bite and touch noses
-She has learned to scream, not like throwing a fit scream, but just to scream because she can..especially in places where it echos
-Clicks her tongue
-When she hits/bumps her head she looks at you, scrunches her face and says "ooohhh"
-Loves to play with my eyelashes
-We got her a new carseat (front facing), but after we bought it, someone told us they aren't supposed to be in it until they are one year!?
-LOVES her cousin, Cooper who is just one year and 3 days older than she.
-Shares things with others (binki, bottle, food, etc)
-Wearing 9 months, some 12 month and even some 18 month clothing :(
-Still takes about 2-3 naps a day that range from 1-2 hours
-Still not a very good sleeper. She wakes up about twice every night

Miss H. is at such a fun stage...but a hectic stage. I can't let her out of my sight because she is always getting into trouble. I absolutely L O V E to watch her learn new things. She is so smart and catches on quickly. She's the sweetest little girl I have ever met. She loves everyone she meets (almost anyway) and the attention that they give her. She is a princess & she sure knows it!

Mommy & Daddy love you so much Hadley Shay!!
