Sara is 9 months!

So, Sara is 9 months old. I can't believe how fast time flies! We took her yesterday for her check-up and she is doing great. Well, besides the fact that she has a cold right now. She has been crawling for for several months now and pulling up on any and every thing that she can. She also now "cruises" around the furniture or whatever she can hang onto. Sara can stand unassisted for a few seconds before she either falls or grabs onto something. We have bought her a stroll-along walker and she has taken a couple of steps with that, but she doesn't get much of a chance to practice with it because her big brother likes to play it. She has also learned how to crawl onto Cooper's toddler bed and climb the stairs at church. Of course, the down part is, she doesn't know how to get down. As of right now, Sara has 4 teeth. She has 2 bottom teeth and 2 on top that have come through and she has 2 more on top that are breaking through. I was going to post some recent pics of her, but with her being sick the past several days I don't have any that are very flattering. So, as soon as I get some recent pics I will post them. Her 9 month stats are: 18.3 lbs. and 27 1/4 inches long and her head circumference is 18 inches. So, she is in the 25-50% percentile for her height and weight and in the 90% percentile for her head circumference. I blame the big head on the Cox gene. I am sure I will find out if my kids are the only ones in the family with a big head and if they are, well then I guess we will know where they got their genes from.

Happy 9 months to Sara!! Sounds like she's growing fast. My kids have the big heads as well. I blame it on DH's side. ;o)

Congrats on the big milestone. I hope she gets feeling better soon. Bed heads are cute for babies in my opinion, I'm sure she'll grow into it! :)

I can't even remember Savannah being 9 months and that was a year ago! Time seems to be going at a rapid pace! You're such a good mommy!
