9 months

I know I say this every month, but seriously, how is Tatum already 9 months old! It is crazy how fast it goes. As you can see she was super excited about this milestone.
Haha, okay so maybe she wasn't.  But I'll still share some pictures and give an update on Tatum's growing up.

Her stats:

Weight: 15 lbs 12 oz (13th percentile)
Height: 27.5 inch (49th percentile)
Head circumference: 43 cm (25th percentile)

And what is she up to?

-She can now walk along furniture.  Brennan was hoping she'd walk on her own by today but I think that is still a little ways off.
-She has two teeth! They have been coming in for a couple of weeks, and now you can actually see them when she smiles.  It's pretty cute!
-Her "hand thing" has definitely turned into a wave. She does it whenever it is time to say goodbye.
-She loves dogs.  She starts panting (I don't know how else to describe it) whenever she sees Duke. 
-She still loves her baths but always insists on standing up.  It sort of defeats the purpose.
-One negative development in the last month is the start of fits. I had no idea it would start so young. It is actually kind of funny to see how dramatic a 9 month old can be.  If she is unhappy she will throw herself back on the floor.  And she cries every time we change her diaper.  She also cries for about 15 seconds every time we put her in her stroller. She is crazy.
-She likes it when we say "I'm gonna getcha." She gets really excited and swings her arms up and down.
-She has really mastered feeding herself small finger food and loves the cheerios, puffs, and yogurt bites.
-She is a better napper but still gets up once or twice at night-my goal is to end that when we get back from vacation!
-She is definitely still obsessed with my hair. She plays with it while she falls asleep, while she nurses, pretty much anytime it is within reach.
-When we get her out of her crib in the morning she will give a big hug. It is pretty much the best way you can start a day.

Happy 9 months Tatum!


  1. I can see Rachel in her eyes in the top picture. Maybe it's just because she is mad haha.

  2. Love getting to know her a little better since I don't get to interact with her on a regular basis. She sure is cute!

  3. I love her so much!!! I just wish I could kiss her right now! So cute!
