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.

Would you be so kind to send a vote our way today! You can vote each day. Thanks!
She is adorable. My son is 14 months old and I still get a little excited when he claps and waves. It’s so cute. It’s even cuter when he says bye bye in that little baby voice.
She is such a cutie!! My little girl is doing the same thing right now when it comes to purees, she is not digging them at all anymore haha! Its crazy how fast they grow!!!
She seems like such a fun little baby! I think she looks SO much like both of you… And boy is she cute! I really think she has the best cheeks ever. It is weird when they start getting to the walking point and becoming ‘real little people’. My friend’s daughter Lily is now 2 and a half and it is so crazy to hear her speak in sentences and converse and run around like a child and not just a baby anymore, but it’s so fun when they can interact that much!
So hiper cute! Totally a doll, I love the photo that she shows her belly
Happy 9 months, little Rowan!!
I can’t believe she is already 9 months! Those rosy cheeks are too cute!
She is beautiful! What lovely cheeks 🙂
Oh my goodness, those adorable cheeks!! She’s such a beautiful baby 🙂 Happy 9 months, Rowan!
Gosh she’s so special! Sounds like you’re savouring every minute….
really, 9 months already? she is THEEEE cutest little ladybug i’ve ever seen. seriously. i think im partial to the cheeks because thats what i looked like as a baby!
ahhh she is just so CUTE I wanna explode!
she sounds like such a beautiful, healthy girl. I love your posts about her!
The hot dog dance cracks me up. Goofy’s is my favorite. those ears!
have you looked up Baby Led Weaning? it’s about just giving baby pieces of what you eat. Real food, which it sounds like Rowan wants. I read about it on chronicles of a babywise mom, but there’s more info out there.
p.s. my not-yet 9 month old weighs at least 24 pounds. what sort of crazy curve is she on?!
She is just SO big all of a sudden! Right?!
She is adorable!!! Sheâ€™s turning into a beautiful little lady.
Hope you are enjoying your trip and the game last night 😉
Rowan is such a cutie – and that vintage dress – so pretty 🙂
After finding your blog almost a year ago now (you were pregnant with Rowan when i found it) I never wanted to be a mother so badly. I’m so excited that i finally got a positive pregnancy test and i’m seeing the doctor tomorrow to confirm. I’ll be looking back at all your baby posts again! You really have been such an inspiration 🙂
Eek! I love the pic of her showing off her belly 🙂
gosh – she is just so darn cute. i cant even handle it! hope you guys are having an amazing trip! xox
Those rosy cheeks are darling!
Beautiful little baby. She has the sweetest face, with her chubby rosey cheeks. You got the “hot dog” song stuck in my head now, hahaha. I watch that show with my baby girl too. :o)
Anon, don’t be rude.
She’s so adorable! I love her little dress and those big blue eyes!
She is sooo cute! She looks so like kev in some of these pictures 🙂
Awe she’s so sweet! Those cheeks kill me!!
Both my kids stopped eating baby food about the same age. SO much easier, but now I barley get to eat a whole meal..two beggers at my plate. 🙂
She is the most beautiful little girl! So so sweet.
She is so precious! I love those cheeks…
