Yes my little munchkin was 2 weeks overdue so I am now at the stage where Mabel is 9 1/2 months old, the same time she was in my belly.
The past few weeks have flown by with Mabel learning so much in that short space of time. She has learnt to sit up on her own, crawl and pull herself up on furniture. Every day from morning til night she is constantly on the go, always wanting to learn everything she can that day.
In the past week she even managed to climb the stairs, with us behind her of course, and it just amazed me how quickly she picked it up. We have stair gates on the top and bottom until we can teach her to get up and down the stairs safely on her own.
I am still yet to find a food that Mabel does not like. She definitely takes after her daddy. At the moment she eats anything which is made easier with her having 2 bottom teeth and 2 top ones coming through.

Mabel sleeps through the night, only waking if she is in need of her dummy that she has thrown out of her cot. We did have a couple of weeks disturbed sleep because she had a cold, but we made sure her calpol vapour plug in was on every night and it soon cleared up.
Watching Mabel over these past 9 1/2 months has been such an emotional journey. Seeing her learn new things is such a scary experience, but it also feels me with so much joy in watching her grow up. I still can't believe that she is under 3 months away from her 1st Birthday and in those 3 months I am sure she will continue to learn so much more.
My little Mabel is my heart! My world! My everything!
