Nine Months Old

Rebekah is nine months old already! It’s so hard to believe that time has gone by so quickly. Rebekah went to the doctor’s last week for her well-baby check-up, and she is certainly doing well! She weighs 20lbs. 9 oz. and is 29” tall. I haven’t checked Elise baby book, but I know that Elise wasn’t 29 inches tall until she was 18 months old, and I’m not sure when she broke the 20 lb mark. Dr. Otto was right when he told Elise that she wouldn’t be the big sister for very long. Rebekah has such a great personality and is happy and content most of the time. The only time she really fusses is if she’s hungry or overtired. Of course, she has shown her likes and dislikes, especially when we take something from her she shouldn’t have or when we’re trying to get her to eat something she doesn’t want. Just last week we hit two mobility milestones, which I’m really excited about! On Wednesday, Rebekah figured out how to get from laying down to sitting, and then on Thursday, she started army crawling. Bek’s pretty fast and adept at the army crawl, so we’re even more aware of what’s on the floor. I’m really excited for the mobility milestones, but the only thing bad about it, is that I’m going to have to clean my floors more often. I vacuum a lot, but Rebekah’s shirts have shown that I need to break out the Swiffer more often… *sigh*
