Baby Fern's Cutest Photos From Month 9

Baby Fern's Cutest Photos From Month 9 // via Lauren Hartmann at BabbleFern Winter turned nine months old this weekend and we had our monthly photo shoot. A lot happened this month! Fern got her first tooth (we’re still waiting for it to poke all the way through though), she started crawling and she learned how to wave. (See Month 1 , Month 2Month 3 , Month 4Month 5Month 6Month 7 and Month 8 photo shoots to compare!) She’s also seeming to grasp more cause and effect,which is fun to watch.

This month Fern went apple tasting, flew on a plane for the first time, and tried a ton of new foods!

I am documenting Fern’s first year of life by doing a round up of my favorite photos from that month and taking her photo in front of our chalkboard and making a list of her likes and dislikes.

See Fern’s likes and dislikes and best photos from this past month after the jump!

Fern likes:

*the ABC song, *toothbrushes and power cords, *crawling, *waving, *leaving the house at least once a day, *spitting food at mom

Fern dislikes:

*airplane rides, *the skill saw and other loud noises, *staying home all day

    Happy 9 month birthday baby!
    Fern is obsessed with gourds and pumpkins this month ever since discovering them at the grocery store - so funny!

    My little dress up doll
    This month with the fall weather finally settling in after the Indian summer we had in Portland, I've been having fun dressing Fern up in cute outfits - she's a pretty good sport about it.

    Stroller lover
    Fern loves going on stroller rides now, although she much prefers standing in the stroller to sitting in it.
  • The nighttime crazies 4 of 20
    The nighttime crazies
    This month we experienced what happens when bedtime gets pushed back a half hour - "the nighttime crazies" - lots of giggling and goofy noises and arm flapping and general craziness. Basically hilarious-ness.
  • Playtime with Dolly 5 of 20
    Playtime with Dolly
    Fern has taken a liking to this little dolly in the past few weeks, which makes me happy since it's the first stuffed toy I ever got during my pregnancy.
  • Doing work 6 of 20
    Doing work
    I love seeing Fern exploring her world and learning about new things and each week she seems to be doing more and more of it.
  • A morning stroll 7 of 20
    A morning stroll
    This photo is from her morning stroll while my friend Jamie was babysitting her. She's had a lot of babysitters this month with a busy freelance schedule and she seems to enjoy the change of pace which is nice for me to be able to get things done.
  • Crawling! 8 of 20
    Life has gotten more interesting this month since Fern started crawling...especially for our dog Marley. She's getting a lot more ear pulls and eye pokes this month.
  • She finds the weirdest places! 9 of 20
    She finds the weirdest places!
    Now that she's more mobile Fern finds the weirdest places to scoot herself into! This is what I came in and saw one morning recently.
  • Stopping to smell the roses 10 of 20
    Stopping to smell the roses
    Fern reminds me on a daily basis to stop and enjoy life as I see her taking it all in and soaking up every moment.
  • Animal lover 11 of 20
    Animal lover
    Fern is showing us more and more every month just how much she adores any and all animals. It's so cute! Every time she sees a dog now she starts shrieking excitedly.
  • Daddy/Daughter nights 12 of 20
    Daddy/Daughter nights
    Now that I'm working to lose this baby weight in earnest, Fern gets to spend two nights a week post dinner hanging out with her daddy while I take a class at the gym. They hand out for an hour and then he puts her to bed. This photo was from an evening where they brewed beer together in our backyard. Fern hung out in her play yard and watched. It's fun seeing them become buddies.
  • Morning snuggles 13 of 20
    Morning snuggles
    Our morning snuggles are my favorite time. I treasure these sweet moments when all she wants is to curl up next to me, because I know it won't last forever.
  • Future Alumni 14 of 20
    Future Alumni
    I never would've bought this little cheerleading outfit for Fern, even if it is our alma mater, but after I saw its cuteness on her I was so glad my mother-in-law got it. Why is everything so much cuter when it's miniature?
  • Sneaking peeks 15 of 20
    Sneaking peeks
    Fern is constantly trying to sneak peeks of the TV - and here is one such example - I love her mischievous little expression!
  • Apple tasting 16 of 20
    Apple tasting
    Fern went to her first apple tasting this month. She got to try a little nibble of around 50 different varieties. She was pretty excited about it.
  • Pumpkin picking 17 of 20
    Pumpkin picking
    We haven't gone to the pumpkin patch yet (we'll be going this Friday), but Fern got to pick out a little baby pumpkin at the apple tasting and she loved it!
  • My little flower 18 of 20
    My little flower
    She even looks good as a flower.
  • Pianist 19 of 20
    While visiting her daddy and grandpa at work, Fern got to play the ivories and was definitely a fan. Piano ownership may be in our future one day.
  • Parisian Chic 20 of 20
    Parisian Chic
    I had to include this photo, because I simply love this little outfit - Fern finally fits in this dress my friend Caroline brought her from France and also finally fits into these little antique shoes her Grammy got her. My girl is getting so big!
