9 months old, let's get moving!

So I'm a bit late, but in order to simplify my life I scheduled Peyton's 3 year well child visit and Sierra's 9 month well child at the same time.  She has really made a lot of progress this month in the mobility arena. She's crawling all over the place, pulls up to standing like it's nothing, and is starting to try and cruise.  She's more verbal than ever and is eating like it's going out of style.  All that eating makes for thighs to write home about.  No one who sees Sierra's thighs can go without making a comment.  They are HUGE!    So she weighed in this month at 18 lbs 13 oz.  She's 27 1/2 inches long.  So she's around the 50th percentile for each.

It seems she may finally be growing out of her dairy allergy.  She's had yogurt puffs and I ate a bite of ice cream on Peyton's birthday and she had no reaction.  Tonight I ate some sushi with cream cheese so we'll keep our fingers crossed.  She's started waving spontaneously, clapping, and dancing.  This is such a fun stage.

She is such a happy child, but so snotty!  I don't know if she has allergies, has sinus issues because of GI issues, is teething or what but I feel so bad for her because she is always either stuffed up or her nose is running.  She still HATES anyone touching her nose, so she is one of those kids that constantly has snot or crusties around her nose and there's nothing I can really do about it.  She's also been sleeping a lot so I think we may be in the midst of a growth spurt.

We changed babysitters recently.  She's doing great.  I hate that they have to go twice a week to a sitter when she is still this young, but things are different than they were when her brother was young.  I at least feel comfortable that she's in a safe environment and getting plenty of stimulation.

That's our baby girl.  We love those smiles so much!
