At Malka’s 9 month appointment today, we discovered that she had 6 teeth (I guess one popped last night…), her next appt. is at 12 months, the doctor wants us to reduce her ounces from 24 per day to 18, she’s 27 pounds, 29 inches long, and her head circ. was 46 centimeters!
Woo Hoo! Narda was convinced that Malka Palka Pooka Palka would be 30 pounds, I said 28. Technically, it was 27.8, but we were both wrong, thankfully. She’s a crawling fool, she now sleeps on her tummy in her crib, stands in her crib at daycare, only wants to feed herself, and is growing and delighting us at every turn.
“They” say that it all happens really fast. I couldn’t say that when we first brought her home – the time seemed to go by so slowly, we were barely sleeping, and walking around in a constant daze. Now granted, we are still tired, but she sleeps pretty much from 7:30pm to 5:00 or 6:00 am. We can’t complain.
And the time? It’s FLYING. Can someone slow down the clock please?

Malka Palka Pooka Palka- CUTEST cute name ever!
So glad you had a good 9 month appointment today.
Sooo… The doc wants you to reduce ounces *snap* just like that? How are you going to do it? Isn’t she going to be peeved?
If you figure out how to stop time let me know.
I said to Gaye last week – ‘This really is the perfect age, I know I have liked others, but this is so lovely. I wish I could just freeze him and keep him like this, now, for a long long time’ she said “You know you have said that about 4 times a year every year don’t you?” I didn’t (swear!).
I said to Thomas (who is growing at a great rate) “Darling, I am just going to have to put a brick on your head so you stop growing” he said “Mum not even a whole house would stop me growing!”
Those are great numbers. I was really busy trying to make some kind of math pattern out of them, but then realized that they can’t be twisted into anything but Malka’s numbers of perfection. 9 months is a wonderful age!
awww…my baby is almost 9…9 YEARS old. How does it happen so quickly?
If you find a way to slow it down…you would be instant zillionairs. 🙂
Yay for a good appt!
Way to grow Malka! Yes, someone does need to slow the clock down. Evelyn’s going for her 9 mos appt this week. Where has the time gone??? 🙂
WOW Can Malka give us some tips please. Little ME needs to gain some of that! YAY for her – but yea, I know that feeling of needing to slow down the clock. Time is flying oh so fast.
