Kate is 9 months!

Kate turned 9 months at the beginning of June. I took her on Friday, June 1st to the pediatrician for her check up and I am proud to report that she weighs 18 lbs, 9.5 oz , measured 27" in length and her head circumference was 47"! She was in the 25-50% percentile for height and weight and in the 90% percentile for her head -- she's definitely smart and full of personality!

Her two bottom teeth are in! She also says Ma, Ma and Da-da! :) She said Da-da first.

It's amazing to witness her accomplishments -- at nine months, she is very mobile. Her confidence in her balance and being able to stand without holding on to something is getting stronger each day. She's increased the time from 3 to almost 6 seconds before she realizes that she's doing it on her own and then plops to the floor.

In other news, Kate moved to the older infants classroom at Primrose. She is in a class with babies who are crawling, pulling up and starting to walk. She loves it. On her progress reports she is hardly taking any naps during the day - which is great for us because she usually conks out early and sleeps through the night!
