Ella continues to grow up (obviously)and seems to be progressing rapidly with her physical movement. Although she isn't crawling, she is pulling herself up to a standing position and *almost* walking. She's always been very strong with her legs, since day one wanting to stand up.
We had her 9 month check up this week. She is 27.25 inches and 17.4 pounds. 50th percentile for height and 25th for weight. She isn't quite where she needs to be for weight, so the pediatrician suggested feeding her table food. While we won't feed her everything, it's been funny watching her try new things. On that list of new foods is Kiwi, watermelon, cantaloupe, pasta, hummus, egg whites which were hard boiled (not yolks of course), cheerios, baby puffs, and we even gave her a taste of a pickle that she for sure didn't want to let go of. The only things she didn't seem to take to very well are the egg whites and pasta. We will keep working on pasta because it's quick and easy.
Ella also needs to take a visit to the eye doctor because one of her eyes appears to be a bit lazy. The ped said that it's probably going to just correct itself, but just in case, we should go to the eye doctor for an appointment. Better safe than sorry.
Only two pictures this week because my camera upload thingy isn't working and I had to upload a different, slower way. These pictures are of her standing by herself and her first taste of hummus and wheat wrap!
