Peyton is 9 months old today! I can’t believe it. Just knowing that she will be a year old in 3 months makes me so sad! She is getting so big, so fast! She has already been here longer than she was in my belly 😦 It seems like yesterday but also seems like forever ago.
She has been doing something new every day. She has just started clapping her hands! She HATES when you try to make her do it so I stopped trying LOL She has finally started doing it on her own though, which is exciting! She is very independent and likes to do things herself and be in control, for sure. Just like her mama. She started swaying back and forth and clapping to music! I was watching the movie “Bridesmaids” and at the end of the movie they play “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips and she LOVES IT. I was cracking up! Now when I play it she puts a big smile on her face and sways back and forth! She likes women empowerment songs, what can I say? 😉
She has also been army crawling and trying to climb up things! She is taking on so much at once and it is incredible to watch! This has all been within the past week! … Except for the crawling, she started doing that a few weeks ago. She also started giving us kisses! We can say “gimme kiss” and she leans her face in to kiss us! 🙂 It is heart melting ❤ She is so sweet, I can’t even explain it. She is still not very cuddly though, unfortunately for me lol She is when she is tired or in the mood… otherwise she wants to be free. Although it makes me sad that she doesn’t wanna cuddle much anymore, I appreciate her little personality and her desire to be a free spirit.
We had her 9 month well check yesterday! She did great. She is right on track developmentally. She is on the smaller side of the percentiles, but that is nothing we didn’t expect! She is just tiny like her mommy 🙂 Her stats will be in the questionnaire! ❤
I plan on doing a 6-9 month baby “must haves”! I’m debating whether I should write a blog about it or do a vlog about it on our YouTube channel! If you are interested in those types of things, please message me or comment and let me know which one you would prefer to see!
