9 Month Stats, Llamas, and Cupcakes

Rowen had her 9 month appointment today. She is 18 lbs 2 oz, 27 3/4in long, and has a 17 3/4in head!
We were also given the go ahead to start feeding her real people food! Pasta, mac and cheese, all kinds of yummy stuff!

We took Rowen to her first fair today! As many know, she has a stuffed llama named Douglas who she looooooves. As soon as I found out about the fair, I pretty much decided that we were going for the sole purpose of Rowen getting to see a real llama.

We walked around forever. She saw goats and sheep, cows and horses. We took her to the rabbit barn and the poultry barn. But we had yet to see a llama.

Finally as we were about to give up and go home, we walked past the feeding/petting zoo. There were llamas! Yay!!

She was unimpressed with the pony.. maybe this means she wont ask us for one later ;P

There were also pot bellied pigs and pygmy goats! She loved them all! We had such a great time!
She loved the pygmy goats! She kept laughing at them.

O! And there was a camel!

Lastly, Daddy got his birthday present today! A few of our friends all pitched in to get him a cupcake tattoo. For those of you that don't know, we called Rowen "Cupcake" in utero. We decided that we were going to get cupcake tattoos for her :)
Colin finally got his. I love it <3

9 months

I can not believe that my little baby is 9 months old already! What the heck happened?!

In the last month Rowen has been getting into everything! The second we put her down, she is off messing with something. She loves to pull the kitchen towels off of the oven handle. Playing with the remotes, Daddy's Xbox controller, laptops, and just about anything on the coffee table keeps her pretty busy.

She is now a pro crawler, and my goodness she is FAST.  You look away for half of a second and she is gone! And much to the dogs dismay, she loves to go after them. She is also a pro at pulling herself up to the couch, so they cant even seek refuge there anymore. No where is safe!

As of yesterday, she has decided that its cool to stand on her own. This terrifies me. Between that, and her dragging/pushing around a walker toy her Auntie Erin gave her, Im beginning to think that walking is in the near future...and I am not ready for that!

We have been trying to transition completely away from pureed food. She now gets pear slices, sweet potato slices,  broccoli, among other things.

Also this week, she is  now the proud owner of not one, but TWO teeth!

I am just in shock. I can not believe how fast she is growing up. Its so awesome to watch her explore and learn new things.

She has her 9 month wellness appointment tomorrow morning. I will update with stats after :)
