I Know She's Mine But...

As the heading reads, I know this baby is mine but, she really is the sweetest little thing ever...

Just wanted to make a quick post about some of Annie's little milestones I don't want to forget.

She's 9 months now and she really is a petite little thing. She's in the 26th percentile for height and weight and is wearing size 6 to 9 month clothes and size 2 or 3 diapers. She has just in the last week cut her top two front teeth (which she ran a small fever and had diarrhea along with!)

She is eating baby food, puffs, and cheerios and can eat a real banana. She loves cheerios and puffs the most along with her cereal. She's OK with baby food but would prefer puffs!
She still has an occasional touch of eczema on the bends of her ankles, but the rest of her skin is doing well as long as we stick to the scent free dye free detergent's, soaps, etc (which we do for the bigger kids anyway)

She really loves her big brother, likes to watch lilly from a distance (HA) likes to play with Daddy but is really a Mommy's girl at heart. She likes to know that I'm near and sleeps wedged right up next to me. She is still getting up alot during the night, but she is a lot like Noah as a baby and he was just not a sound sleeper and neither is she. Lil was a champion sleeper, the other two not so much! But it passes so we're dealing!

Most people say she looks like me or Noah and I must agree (her baby pictures look alot like mine!) She definitely has the "Stevenson" look.

She is crawling like a manwoman and does the funniest thing. She cocks one leg up under her when she crawls like she would like to stand up any minute. She is also pulling up and I think will be crusing the furniture any day.

She is the only one of my children who have ever had to be strapped into their high chair. The other two would sit like they were supposed to. Annie has figured out how to pull up and sit on the tray, she's a little monkey!

Anyway, she does have the sweetest little disposition unless you try to take her too far from her Mommy and then she will let you know about it, and I kind of like it that way! HA!

what did we ever do without our sweet youngest baby? Love this girl
