Whoa...I'm Behind!!





Life has been crazy busy, but so full of love and blessed moments. (Well, okay, other than two out of three of my kids having swine flu last week anyway.)

We had Tessa baptized on October 10th. We've been getting out and enjoying fall festivities when we can, but unfortunately it has been SO rainy here the past week. And, now our entire school district is closed for a whole week due to the swine flu (ick) so hopefully it will quit raining!

All the kids are doing really well. I pinch myself constantly because I feel so blessed and lucky. I still can't believe Tessa is home and that she's mine (well, temporarily on loan anyway, lol). She's so, so, so amazing. She's crawling better and better everyday and she is trying her hardest to pull up now. She is sleeping good lately too. Yay!

Well, I'm off to enjoy a pumpkin donut and glass of wine. :) Happy Fall!

Provin' Me Wrong...

Just when I post that Tessa isn't crawling yet, she goes and proves me wrong. Here's my girl in action. :) Can I just say how much I LOVE my baby girl?? She is such a little cuddle bug...she hangs on to me tight and hugs me. :) Pure bliss. video

Nine Months Old!



Wow, our sweet baby girl is nine months old already. 3/4 of her first year are over. It's hard to take sometimes...when you miss out on their early months...but it is what it is.

Tessa Mei continues to do great. She is sweet as pie and we all continue to love on her and dote on her like mad. Yes, she will be spoiled indeed. She isn't crawling yet, probably because she's really only happy on my hip, in her high chair or in her crib. :) Playing on the carpet isn't on her list of "to do's". :)

She has the greatest smile and makes us crack up. She does raspberries better than anyone, and we can't stop kissing her sweet face.

She has pretty much shunned baby food at this point, and loves anything we can feed her that's NOT baby food. :) Her favorite though, is definitely rice! Right now she's munching on a Gerber Banana cookie while I type. Don't tell her it's baby food though!

She is sleeping great...from about 7 pm to 7 am, with one bottle in the night. She actually went three nights in a row last week with no night bottle and we thought we were golden, but not so much. We think she's in a growth spurt right now...she went from drinking about 16 ounces of formula a day last week to about 28 a day this week!

We're so in love with our baby girl...and feel so blessed to have been chosen to parent this angel. :)
