Mary-Margaret 9 months

Weight: 16 lbs., 20th%
Length: 27 inches, 18th %
Head: 44.5cm, 64th%
Mary-Margaret adores her big sister and follows her everywhere.  She will squeal and kick when HG comes in the room.

She started playing well independently this month (If she is well rested and fed).  Nursery workers always comment on how content she is. 

She is an observer and watches intently.  
She pulls up on everything, and is starting to cruise along furniture.  She has taken a few steps with her walker.
She started eating solids consistently this month.  Normal breakfasts include Cheerios, fruits, she has tolerated eggs but mostly plays with them, yogurt, fruit/oatmeal combo.  Her favorite lunch is mushed banana with peanut butter.  Dinner is some table food from what we are having, and a veggie puree.  She likes when I add quinoa to veggie purees.  She really enjoys shredded meats and noodles.

No teeth yet. 
Mary-Margaret is still not sleeping through the night, but we love her anyway.  She will usually wake once, yet some nights she wakes for a dream feed early and then again in the middle of the night.  She wakes for the day between 6-7.  She needs two naps right now, but morning nap is short and has to be adjusted depending on our schedule.   Afternoon nap is much more routine and she will sleep for at least 2 hours typically, and sometimes more :)
