At nine months, Sapphira weighs 18 pounds, 1.5 ounces (35th percentile), is 27.5 inches tall (46th) percentile and has a head circumference of 46.5 centimeters (96th percentile--ha!). She is still in size 3 diapers, in 3-6 month clothing (0-3 are pretty snug, but still doable!) and is quite the sweet little girl. We are soooo close to crawling--she'll get on her hands and knees and rock. She is also quite the babbler and will carry on quite the conversation. Malachi can always make her laugh (when he isn't hitting her or taking toys from her! oy). She continues to be quite the momma's girl...Daddy has a hard time getting her to sleep unless I leave the room completely. Still a champion nurser! She usually goes down for an hour nap around 10:30 am and then another around 3 pm. She's a night girl like momma and usually goes down for bed between 10 and 11 pm and wakes up once to eat and is up for the day around 9 am. She is starting to wave, but her version is a bit reminiscent of Hilter...hehehehe! Here's our official 9 month Molly picture (I didn't get around to these until like the 15th or so and it was, as you can tell, a rushed crummy light, do-it-before-we-forget "photoshoot"!)
Have I ever mentioned how much I just love this little girl?! :)
Welcome to our little cyber-spot! Our sweet family has been split in two...four of us walk together here on earth, while 3 of our sweet babies are snuggling with our Savior. Natalie was born on March 14 and met Jesus on March 16, 2006. Her little brother, Malachi, joined us in May 2007. Our second daughter, Sapphira arrived in April 2009. Our precious 4th child, whom we named Asher, met Jesus in Febuary 2011. Our 5th sweet baby, Azra, joined her siblings in Heaven in August 2011. Baby Amira is due to arrive in March 2013. A very patient dog and a cat round out our crew. Thanks for spending time with us!
