The stats are in. At her 9-month check-up today Anna is 28 inches long (50th percentile) and weighs 17 lbs. 10 oz. (25th percentile). I so had to laugh when I saw the numbers come up on the scale. Conner weighed that same amount at 4 months! I'll have to pull out his baby book to compare what his length was. As far as growth she's stayed somewhat consistent on the charts for height, weight she's going down, and her head measurements are climbing up a pretty steep curve!
She's still a happy girl (I half-heartedly type that as I'm listening to her scream in her crib -- very unusual, she usually goes down without a peep). She crawls all over the place and lately I've had to stick her in her high chair with cheerios while I vacuum so she doesn't mess with the cord behind my back. She pulls herself up on everything. She loves her brothers (and they love her back most of the time). She is addicted to graham crackers -- can't get enough of them. She's trying out table foods -- mac & cheese last night and then french toast tonight was a hit. She naps 2x a day, nurses 3x a day. She's learning how to drink from a sippy cup. She has 6 teeth. She has started to jabber "da, da" (despite our "ma, ma" training sessions that have been going on for months). She loves bananas. She goes nuts for her baths -- just shaking in anticipation as she watches the water fill up the tub. (She just got quiet). She has a great laugh -- the one where it sounds like she's gasping for air. She's our little girl and we love her to death!
