9 month stats

We had Avery's 9mo well-baby visit at the doctor on friday. She measured at 17lbs 1oz and26 3/4 inches tall (Both in the 25th percentile). She's really consistent and is staying right on her growth curve, so that's fantastic!
At 9 months, Avery is:
-wearing 6-9 or 9month tops, 3-6 or 6-9mo dresses, and 9mo, 12mo, or 6-12mo pants (because of the cloth diapers)
-crawling and cruising really well, and able to stand on her own for up to 30 seconds
-eating "real" food cut into chunks- no more purees here! And her favorite? Mac N Cheese :D
-has mastered drinking from a straw
-able to say "dada", "mama" (not always to me), "no" (haven't heard this one in a while, thank goodness!), and maybe "uhoh"
-still only has 2 teeth, but i think her top 4 are coming in any day now!
-really starting to like books. she will turn the pages and "reads" in this cute little voice! (GOT to get it on video!!)
-loves other babies, pets, and herself in the mirror or photos
-still waking up 2-4 times per night to nurse or just hang out :/
-loves her daddy's "redbirds hat"
-likes playing in her tunnel, or under the blanket
-starting to "share"- her paci, toys, food, etc
-starting to be shy when she's around other people... she turns her face into my shoulder- it's precious!!!

I think that's it for now. I'll add pictures once we get them taken- hopefully this week or next sometime!!
