Nine months!

Somehow Kinsley is nine months old.  I'm not sure how time is going so fast. It needs to stop. 

Her stats: 
Weight: 23 pounds 2 ounces (97th percentile) 
Head circumference: 17 inches (32nd percentile) 
Height: 28 inches (65th percentile) 

Kinsley has slimmed down!  To the 97th percentile!  Although she hardly grew at all so she is still comfortably fitting in 18 month clothing. 

Moving: Kinsley is a girl on the go. She quickly crawls anywhere she wants.  She taught herself how to crawl up stairs so we had to put all of our gates up.  She has been pulling up to standing for over a month and is starting to let go and balance.  Walking will be in our future soon.  

Eating: Kinsley still nurses every four hours.  Shortly after she turned 8 months she figured out that she actually likes real food and has been feeding herself since. She likes puffs, bananas, avocado, peas, carrots, and sweet potatoes. She is really good at her pincher grasp so she has also tried pine needles, pine cones, random dirt, and string. 

Other likes: Kinsley loves her siblings. Se always smiles when Selah sings to her and Ephraim can make her laugh like no one else. 
Dislikes: She still hates the dark. She does not like to be in the car by herself. Selah and Ephraim can make her happy when they are in the back seat, but going anywhere with just me and her is torture. She is still very attached to me, although it is getting better at home. I can usually take a shower and have her be with Forrest.  Nurseries at church are a whole other issue.  She hates them.  The minute we walk into the nursery at church or Tuesday mornings she starts to cry.  So she comes with me.  It won't last forever and her siblings were pretty similar at this age so I know it gets better. 

Sleep: we are still cosleeping.  Although I am trying really hard to get her to sleep in her own bed.  She has been going down relatively easy, but is only lasting one sleep cycle (about 45 minutes).  She actually slept on her tummy once and u thought that might be the magic trick, but she still woke up. I will keep trying. 
Overall Kinsley is a very sweet happy baby.  She is pretty easy to keep entertained and loves her family.  We like her a lot.
