happy 9 months to my love bug


 Sneak peek of Mia's 9 month photos!
- Mia has started to stand on her own! She doesn't last more than a few seconds but it's so fun to see her figure this stuff out! The funniest thing? She stands the best when she's completely naked... no diaper, no nothing! But I don't blame her. That diaper would totally throw my balance off, too :)
- She nods her head and it's just the cutest! I don't think she knows what it means, she just sees us doing it and while she's playing or eating she'll stop, nod, then continue. So cute!
- Mia LOVES to clap! Sometimes she claps and nods at the same time just to entertain herself. Other times when she is proud of what she's doing she'll hesitantly clap a couple of times, look at us for approval, then smiles so big our hearts could burst and claps enthusiastically :) I love her personality! 
- This girl loves her food! She is eating everything now! Fresh fruit and veggies, string cheese, meat and the occasional bite of ice cream ;) She loves to eat "grown up" food but still eats pureed baby food a couple times a day. It's so awesome to just feed her what Eric and I are eating for dinner! She still nurses 4 times a day.
- Her hair is too long on top to stand up and I kind of miss that little mohawk, ha! But I don't miss it enough to cut her hair :)
- Mia is so incredibly social and I LOVE it! She loves other people but her favorite are toddlers! She gets so excited when she sees them that she squeals :) She does her best to chase them around while crawling and to pull herself up on them. I would think that toddlers would be intimidating for a little baby, but not for Mia!
- She is so giving with her wide open mouthed, slobbery kisses and I can't get enough of 'em!
- Mia loves to crawl around with toys in her mouth. She looks like a little puppy and it cracks me up every single time!
- I finally pulled out the 6-9 month clothing and washed them! Her 3-6 and 6 month clothes fit her perfectly right now but I'm determined to have her wear the 9 month summer clothes before summer ends! I'm excited for new, fun outfits!
- She still wears size 2 diapers.

I was just thinking this morning how much I love knowing that when I wake up I get to spend my day with our perfect daughter. Eric and I are so blessed and we love Mia SO much!! We are trying to soak up every moment we can with her because she grows too quickly!

Such a Tiny thing. Savanna is almost 4 months and I feel like she could wear 9 months if she really wanted. Love those two baby teeth. PRECIOUS!

So sweet! The growing up part is the worst! But it's so fun to see them at each new stage :)

Cute post!
Can't believe she's standing up by herself already! Granted it ain't for long but I'm sure she will be walking pretty soon! Babies are really impressive when it comes to leaning new skills :)
And her outfit is so adorable and Mia even more!

She is so cute! I used to crawl around with a mini basketball in my mouth. I guess I had to have my toys with me at all times. Haha!
