Ella is 9 Months!

Ella is nine months old now.  It's hard to believe that she is already so big.  We visited the doctor on Monday, and here were her stats:

Weight: 14 lbs. 13.5 ozs (less than 3%)
Height: 27 1/4 inches (45%)
Head: 43 1/2 cm (25%)

Here are some things Ella is doing now:
  • Started rolling all the way over and over again (traveling quickly by rolling)
  • Can sit up from laying down (pulls on things or rolls to her side to get up)
  • Trying to get on her knees and pull up to her knees on some toys
  • Sleeps on her tummy
  • Says "ma ma" and "na na"
  • Says "nai nai" when tired (for night night)
  • "Sings" very loudly (in church or when someone else is singing)
  • Makes the "milk" sign for something to drink and (a form of) "all done" (slaps her hand on the tray)
  • Turns the pages of her books as we read
  • Still no teeth!!
  • Has crazy hair that looks like a baby bird - in a mohawk pattern on the top of her head!
  • Eating all veggies and fruit with cereal (rice and oatmeal) and just started Yogurt.  Still very sensitive to texture (can't stand any chunks yet!)
  • Very interested in moving around all the time, but other than rolling a lot, she can't get anywhere just yet.  This usually results in a lot of squirming (when in my arms), or screaming (when on the floor)!
  • Still getting up at least one time during the night
