Watch Ayla grow! #2

Ayla has turned 9 months today! Where is the time going?
She is still 18lbs but she did grow an inch and she is 28 1/2 inches long. Should I be worried?
Anyway, below are pictures from 5 months until today. I am going to list some of her accomplishments with the pictures.

Ayla at 5 months.

During this month she started her solids and she started to sit up on her own. We would put her boppy behind her so she wouldn't fall back. And she started to yelling, "La, La, La!" all the time.

Ayla at 6 months

She still was perfecting sitting up, so the boppy is still there and she started to say, "Ba, Ba, Ba!" 

Ayla at 7 months

She cut her first two teeth. She had perfected sitting up and said her first word, "Dada." She also started to sit in shopping carts and high-chairs because she could sit up on her own.

Ayla at 8 months

 She started to say other words like, "Mama and Dog." She started to crawl and has gotten it down in the last few weeks. She has learned to crawl, stop and sit up and start crawling again. She is also starting to pull herself up onto her knees. She has also started to point at her books while I read them to her. Plus she has definitely learned the concept of "peek-a-boo." She will hold up material and hide her face and then pull it down after you say, "Where is Ayla?" Then she will pull the material back up after you say, "There she is!" It is so adorable. She has also started to make messes. Her favorite so far to do is, pull the diapers out of the diaper box and spread them all over the floor. The fun Begins!!!

This was taken today. She was just scanning the hall to try and find something she could get into. If you click on the picture, you can see her teeth.

My she has grown! I love you Ayla!!

Soooo cute!
Happy 9 months!
I had Mary's well check yesterday and she's only 20 pounds! 15% in weight and 75% in height. Tall and skinny. (jealous.)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh, how I wish Noah was only 18 lbs. Then we could use up all of those diapers he can's fit in anymore. You know, you saw them, they are taking up so much room.

Time sure have flown by, it feels like yesterday you were at Marie Calendar....asking for a doggy bag.
Give Ayla a big hug for me. =)

You are such a good mom! And you are so great at taking pictures of everything. I can never remember! Ayal is such a doll and she is getting so big. Oh and by the way I loved your Twilight cake. It was really amazing. You are so creative. I'm jealous you got to see the movie. I still can't wait to see it.

Heather...you are such a good mommy! I can't believe you have tracked Ayla's developmental milestones so closely! It was fun to read through and see how quickly your baby is growing. Having so many words at 9 months is something to brag about!
