Wow... where was the time gone?? I can't believe Malia is 9 months old. I took her to the doctor and he said she was a VERY healthy little girl. She weighs 22 lbs 10 ounces and is 29.75 inches tall. So... 90th percentile in weight and 97th percentile in height. I am used to having tall babies, but Malia is my chubbiest. And I LOVE IT!!
Malia is still such a great baby. She is still sleeping through the night and loves her naps (some even last 4 - 5 hours long). She got her first tooth (bottom middle) about a month ago, and is getting 3 more (the other bottom middle and her vampire ones). She has taken a few steps here and there, but knows she can get around a lot faster if she crawls, so she just crawls. Malia loves to climb up the stairs. If I see her start to climb I will call her name and she just climbs faster. Then when she reaches the top she turns around and smiles her BIG smile and claps her hands. I know... her smile just melts my heart - it's too hard to get mad at her.
Taliana and Ammon are still a HUGE help with Malia. I don't know what I am going to do when they are in school all day. I know Malia is going to miss them.
