9 Months

How is my BABY closer to a year old than she is to being born?  It's all going way too quickly for this mom.  Ridley is such a happy camper she makes you want to have like 20 babies..whoa wait, maybe more like 5.  We say that she is the perfect note to end on because we couldn't get this lucky again.  It also helps that we have twin almost 3 years olds that keep us on our toes.

Ridley weighs around 17 lbs 9oz.  She is pretty petite and will probably be built like Maddox!

Here are some Milestones Ridley has accomplished:

  • Crawling EVERYWHERE
  • Pulling up & Cruising around the furniture
  • Using the pincher grip to eat food
  • Stands alone, unassisted for short amounts of time
  • Has 2 bottom teeth (still)
  • Clapping "Patty Cake"

Here are some of the things Ridley's loves:

  • Getting into things like paper or leaves that she finds on the floor
  • Pulling Lukas's hair and playing with him
  • Watching brother and sister play
  • Standing up in the bath tub and falling on her hiney & clapping at her big splashes
  • Banging toys together
  • Eating finger foods
    • Her favorites are
      • Pumpkin Pie
      • Graham Crackers
      • Corn
      • Chicken

Here are a few things Ridley dislikes:

  • Getting her face washed
  • Getting things taken away that she has put in her mouth
  • Putting on Clothes after a bath
She is really just coming along and growing up super quickly.  I can't believe all the things she can do.  Lukas has really become attached to her and he lets her pull and roll all over him AND give him slobber kisses!  He is a great older brother.  Maddox is really good with her too, but she gets REALLY upset if Ridley pulls her hair!

Everyday is great around here and we totally enjoy having our 3 kids running around!
