Fiona - 9 Months

Fiona had her 9 month appointment yesterday. She is 27.5 inches tall (50-75th percentile) and weighs 20 pounds (50th percentile). No shots this visit!
Fiona is so close to crawling. Actually, I'll say that she's started to crawl because she'll move her knees forward, but she can't cover much distance. We bought a rug for the living room that we roll out during the day for her to play on as opposed to her rolling around on the hardwood floors. Fiona babbles a lot, covering many of the consonants. I think she also understands some words and their associations, but I need to work more with her on that. The biggest challenge with her over the past month has been her bottle strike at daycare. She absolutely refused to take a bottle for about two weeks, which meant she was up 2-3 times per night wanting to eat. Just this week, she's started drinking her bottles again and is already sleeping better at night. Fiona is also eating more solids, mostly jarred foods now, but we are starting to work with her on finger foods.
