My Baby girl is 9 months old. 9 MONTHS OLD!!!! How time flies... we went into this month wide eyed and ready for adventure.
Speaking of hollering, this little girl is becoming quite... loud and used to getting her way. I foresee this being a problem and want to address the behavior but am a little unsure how to discipline a 9 month old. I get the most frustrated with this while feeding her. I will give her a spoonful of food, and go into the kitchen while she is "chewing" to grab something. The second Mallie sees me walk away, she yells out to get me to come back. I go back to her with more food... only to find her mouth is still full of food. She also has started swatting the spoon while a feed her, making a big mess of things.In terms of eating, Mallie is doing great. She eats meat, veggies, fruit, and her gerber cereal mixes and has started on dairy. Plain yogurt is not her favorite but she loves vanilla flavored yogurt.
We have been out blackberry picking on our daily walks and she is a Texas girl for sure, if by nothing else, her love for wild, fresh blackberries. Yummy. We have had lots of mid afternoon snacks along our walking route the past week or two.
Sadly Mallie's Aunt Jamie's grandmother passed away in April. On their trip to Texas, she (Jamie) and my brother Kyle stopped by the house to say hi to Mallie. They also helped out in a huge way and babysat her for a few hours (THANK YOU!!!).
She LOVES Mackie, our dog. Thankfully, Mackie is a very sweet and gentle dog because Mallie pulls, pokes and prods that dog all day long.
And fun playing with family.
