Nine Months Old!

Today Penny is nine months old!  Where is the year going?  Penny had a check-up with the doctor today, and received one shot.  She is one big girl!  Her measurements were 19 lbs and 29 inches long.  That puts her in the 75th percentile for weight and the 95th for length!  It seems Penny is taking after her daddy in height.  In the last month, Penny has mastered pulling up and cruising against furniture, crawling up and down steps (EEK!), and is now making all sorts of sounds.  Penny has also learned to when Cooper knocks her over or steals her toys (which he does A LOT), she lets out an indignant scream, which naturally gets me running.  Also, yesterday she sort of waved bye-bye!

Penny is also steadily eating 3 meals a day of solid food and is even experimenting with finger foods.  She likes applesauce, cereal, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, peas, peaches, chicken, and carrots.  She also can feed herself cheerios, crackers, and sometimes mashed banana.  She is also still taking around 5 bottles a day, which could account for her amazing growth!  I am also happy to report that Penny steadily sleeps through the night from about 8 p.m. until about 6 a.m. and takes one short morning nap and a longer afternoon nap.

We are so thankful Penny is doing so well!
