Big Milestone Month ~ 9 Months

I'm a little late in posting this...Ella turned 9 months on July 6th. This month, by far, has been the biggest month for Ella. She experienced many "firsts."

~ Sat up by yourself a week after turning 8 months.
~ Less than a week later you started crawling.
~ Less than a week after that you started pulling up on anything you could reach up and pull on.
~ You cut your first tooth.
~ You had your first big sickness, which landed you in the emergency room at the Children's Hospital. You were diagnosed with coxsackie, which is "hand, foot, mouth syndrome." Your temperature went up to 103, you had little red spots on your body, and you had ulcers in your throat and mouth. You were miserable and the sickness lasted a week. We had to alternate Tylenol and Motrin every 3 hours. While at the hospital we were able to get your new weight of 18.7 sure did grow!
~ You are saying "mama" and "dada" all the time and are now saying it in reference to the correct people :)
~ You dislike having your diaper changed or putting clothes on or off. You used to LOVE the changing table.
~ You are starting to have a little separation anxiety with mommy. It mainly happens at home when I am in a different room than you. You have no problem being dropped off at the church nursery, so that's good.
~ You have somewhat of a temper...this may be a sign of things to come!
~ You love magazines, especially when you rip them up! Haha!
~ You like to play with your shadow on the carpet when the sunlight come in.
~ You now have realized that their's a bow in your hair! Sometimes you will yank it out and throw it on the floor.
~ You love playing with door stoppers.
~ Your favorite toys are: Tickle Me Elmo, stacking rings, glow worm, toothbrush, empty water bottles, toys that make music or noise, and toys that are interactive.
~ People always remark about your blue eyes and facial expressions. The two "ella faces" are: the bottom pout lip and when you pucker up both lips.
~ You are wearing 9-12 month size clothes.
~ You take just two naps per day and they are normally short...anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour and a half.
