Evelyn {9 Months}

Eat: Every day is a bit different at school, but we nurse in the morning and then she takes around 15-20 ounces at school. We also feed her any and all table food (as long as it's not loaded with dairy).  Some of her favorites include toast, Chick Fil A waffle fries (carbs of any kind really) and really just everything!  I know she will get pickier later in life, so I am enjoying this phase.
Sleep: Nothing has changed here- Hmm, again- you never know with this girl.  She's almost always asleep by 630pm and wakes by 630-645. Since Evelyn's naps at school aren't so great, we try to get her to bed early, sometimes as even early as 545. Most days she has one 1-1.5 hour nap or two 30-45 minute naps. On a bad nap day, she might fall asleep on the way home from school. At home she will take ~1hr morning nap, ~1.5 hour afternoon nap and occasionally a 30 min catpnap in the late afternoon.
Shoes: Size 2-3 but we never wear them
Clothes: 9-12 months
Diapers: Size 4 (we sometimes use Nora's size 5 and those work fine too)
Trips: No trips this month!!!
Likes: playing with toes, pulling up on everything, fake coughing, sitting at the table at school in a real, big girl chair, and holding her bottle while on the bottle,
Dislikes: THESE ARE ALL REPEATS FROM LAST MONTH! long sleeps at school, sleeping through the night for more than 2 nights in a row, getting in her carseat (but then she's fine as soon as you hand her a toy), Nora yelling in her face and Emmy constantly right on top of her
Milestones: going from crawling to sitting to standing back down to sitting and crawling again, just this past week she slept through the night for a whole week!!! (but that ended abruptly from an ear infection- diagnosed at her 9 month appointment)
Health: Another ear infection, imagine that. Setting up an appointment with the ENT
Other: Evelyn survived her first tornado!  It hit Sand Springs and traveled north of downtown. We were at dance and she snoozed right through it in the Tula.  Evelyn continues to be our happy, smiley little baby.  I just wish she slept better :(
