Happy NINE MONTHS Brooker!!!

 I know every parent in the history of the planet asks how in the world their children grow up so fast but S.E.R.I.O.U.S.L.Y how is Brooke already 9 months old and looking like a toddler.

Remember when she was just a little spiky giving me attitude?

 -At 8.5 months she started standing up all by herself (using the table to pull herself up).

-She says da da da da da all day long even though I try desperately to teach her to say mama.  

-She claps after she does anything extra cool (she learned that from me because I clap after I do cool stuff too).  

-She is obsessed with other kids.  She could sit and watch them all day long.  

-She completely sleeps through the night now!  It is hard when you live in an apartment building to sleep train your kiddos but my sister helped me out big time when I was staying at her house to get her to sleep through the night.  I feel like a whole new woman.  

-Her crawling is getting crazy fast.

-She would be content living on a swing in a park.  I would be content watching the smile that she gets when she is on a swing in the park all day every day.

-You wouldn’t believe how fast her little legs kick around when there is a dog within 1/4th of a mile of her.  I think that should be a sign to Billy that we need a dog.  

-Her favorite foods include oatmeal,salmon, yogurt, gold fish, cheerios, avocados and apple sauce.

-She likes wires and electronics.  She gets that from Billy.

I feel as though she has been in the teething stage for at least 8 months but still no teeth!

And her favorite little move that means in baby language:  I am really happy and excited about life.  

                                                                   

It is amazing to me how interactive she is now.  I love watching her learn new things.  Just when I think it couldn’t get any better it does.  This little girl of mine is the best.

My son didn’t get his first tooth until about a week before his first birthday! I felt like he was teething forever! Even now at 14 months old he only has two!

He also loves cords. :)

She is getting so big and is always so darn happy!
My nephew is almost 9 months – he is obsessed with electronics!

He’ll sit on the floor staring at you or mind his own business but as soon as a camera or cellphone is set on the floor he speed crawls to it! I was sitting on the floor with him across the room. I set my camera down and he came scooting over, then I pulled the camera around my body in circles and he chased it around me about 4 times before he gave up. It was hilarious! Silly kids!

I’m always shocked, too, at how quickly babies grow up, especially if you don’t see them every day. Sounds like Brooke is picking up new tricks all the time! She looks like such a happy, content baby. I’m sure she’s a joy to be around. Maybe you should get her a new calculator for her 9 month birthday. ;)

she needs to stop growing up so fast! Love her. Love you! happy 9 months

She seriously does look like a toddler, she is so adorable and I am loving the bows/pigtails you have been doing in her hair. Happy 9 months Brooke! :)

I can’t believe how much hair she has for a 9 month old! I was bald until I was 2! This may be the fact the I’m Australian so I am a little culturally different, but she likes eating goldfish…?

Reply

Haha! I’m pretty sure Janae means goldfish crackers….little cheese flavored crackers shaped like a fish that are very popular in the US.

Happy 9 months Brooke!

You’re a lucky lady to have such a wonderful family. :) Happy 9 months!

Happy nine months Brooke!!!
I swear the pictures that you post if her are cuter and cuter every day!
I’m pretty sure Brooke and I have all of the same favorite foods :)

Adorable! I love her little leg roll wrinkles!

Reply

Happy 9 months, Jacobs family! Any sleep training tips you would like to share would be greatly appreciated. My 6 month old is a great napper, but doesn’t love to sleep at night.

Reply

Brooke definitely needs a dog. I mean, I grew up without one until I was 9 and I definitely feel like I was deprived. That’s why I made it a contingent of getting married. I told Mike I wouldn’t marry him unless I could get a dog ASAP.

Reply

My little guy is about 8 months old and seems to be teething forever too but no teeth. You can see and feel one about to come through but still nothing :(.

Reply

She is just so adorable. Happy Nine Months to her! :)

Reply

Adorable!! I’ve really enjoyed watching her grow thru your blog. Amazing! She makes me so excited for our Baby B!

Reply

You make me so excited to (hopefully) have a daughter one day. She is beyond beautiful and seems like a wonderful little lady to spend all day, every day with :)

Reply

Happy 9 months, Brooke! It really does feel like it flew by. She just keeps on getting cuter though. :)

Happy 9 months!! She is so cute!!

I’m seconding the requests for your sister night sleeping tips. I’m in the middle of a major sleep regression with my 7 .5 mo old.

Reply

Happy 9 months!!

Reply

Happy 9 months, Brooke! I love how in love with her you are :D

Reply

aww really cute post :) I am such a weirdo obsessed with your blog. It just makes me happy and I feel like I know you. I seem like a creeper lol

Reply

Brooke has very good taste in food! Lol. Happy 9 months to Brooke and her little palm tree pig tails! You should tape record yourself saying “Mama” and play it while she sleeps to enhance her vocabulary ;-)

Reply

Just the cutest. It is actually really sobering how fast it goes. It hit me the other day that my son will only be with us for another six years…I can’t stand it!

Reply

She is adorable, and yes, it really does fly by!! My girls just turned 9 and 7 in April, and I still remember my little one doing that same bouncy move that Brooke is doing in your video clip like it was yesterday. Every age and stage is amazing, but man, what I wouldn’t give to step back in time for a day or two and hang out with my girls at 9 mo. old again :) Enjoy every second!!

Reply

She is just perfect Janae!

Reply

Sleep tips from the sister!! Yes please!

Her baby blue eyes melt a person. She is getting so big!

Reply

Brooke is adorable! If she loves dogs, I can’t wait till she meets Ernie, Webb’s dog! Ernie is great with little ones :) Looking forward to meeting you too!

Reply

When can we get together?!?

Reply

Soon!!! I’ll have to get Webb on that!

Reply

Aww I feel like we get to watch Brooker grow up! I don’t like kids at all, but I think she is the cutest thing ever. 9 months went by sooo crazy fast!

Reply

It’s true that late teeth will mean healthy good teeth!!!
Both of mine got them late – they lost them late too. Hasn’t been a problem until my 13 year old is not happy that she’s just now got braces when her friends are getting theirs off LOL.

Please send your sister to Florida to help me with sleep training. I promise to pay her in candy :D
Happy NINE MONTHS Beautiful Brooke!! XO

Reply

She is precious, and time flies! I would love to hear how you sleep trained as well. And, I know every baby is different, but I would love to hear how you travel with her if you don’t mind….when how she naps, how she sleeps at night, etc. I’ve got our first trip with my first baby coming up and am so nervous!

Reply

Happy 9 months! Enjoy this while you can. Brooke is such a doll, you and Billy make the cutest babies. Please make more! No hurry of course :-P

Reply

9 months! So exciting. It only gets more and more fun! God is so good :)

I need those sleep tips!!
