Every month I take a picture of Jacqueline in this white chair. It's nice to see how she changes from month to month. It's getting harder to take her picture since she is so mobile now. I have to quickly take her picture before she craws out the chair!
She is such a joy and gets compliments from everyone on how good of a baby she is. Her personality started to show more now. She is so happy and loves to laugh and is always smiling. At the nursery at the Gym, she craws over the other babies and the lady that works there says she is fearless! I think she gets that from her Daddy. I've heard many stories from Roger(my Father-in-law) of his childhood adventures. She manages to find the smallest pieces of debris, dirt, little itty bitty pieces of decomposed food on the floor and every "treasure" she finds, she puts immediately in her mouth. When I take it away from her, she moves her hands up and down and gets mad. She loves when I hold her tiny hands and she "walks" with my help.
I took her for her 9 months appt last Friday and the doctor says she's worry about her weight. She gained 3 lbs while we were in Brazil in July, but hasn't gained ANYTHING ever since! She actually lost an ounce. Dr. Olmestead told me to put her in a high fat diet. I've being feading her mac and cheese, mash potatoes and anything else that I can add extra butter. I'm taking her back to the Pediatrician in a month for a weight check and my BHAG is that she gains 4 lbs.
