Our dear sweet Rowan is 9 Months old. Over the last 9 months I have called her a handful of nicknames, but honey baby, little honey, sweet baby, little cheetah, and pumpkin seem to be the most reoccurring. I can’t help it. She is so darn sweet. The love names just come out.
We brought her to her 9 month appointment last week and within 5 mins I think the doctor had already said like 3 times, “boy, she is going to be a handful.” haha. Rowan does not stop moving, looking, grabbing, exploring for even a second. She is always on the go. The #1 thing that everyone always says is she is so alert. I think I have heard that like 50 times from people. They are right. Her big blue eyes are always inspecting what’s going on. She does not want to miss anything.
Her current stats are: Length 29 1/2 inches. Weight 21.1 pounds. That puts her at around 90-95%. She is clapping and waving up a storm lately. I love it when she waves. It is so cute. She is getting good at doing it at the right time too. When people say hi or goodbye to her, she waves at them. She is a crazy wall walker. She canvases our place all day long, back and forth and back and forth. She has even started to let go of things to stand there for a second by herself. Rowan does not like help. She wants to do everything herself, including eating. She has started giving us a really hard time eating pureed food. She only wants to eat what we are eating. We have started giving her more real food like cut up avacado, rice and beans and cut up fresh fruit.
I honestly can’t believe how big she is getting. Every day she seems less and less like a baby and more like a little girl. I know we still have a while before those toddler years, but they are creeping up fast.
Her Beavis and Butthead laugh is contagious. It is strange to hear such a throaty laugh come from such a little girl, but it is just too funny. She loves playing with blocks, having Kev read her stories, going for walks, dancing to the hot dog song from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, licking our fruit popsicles, looking at framed photographs and seeing other little kids.
We really couldn’t imagine our life without her.
