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. :)

She drinks formula 16 hours a day?! Ha ha... I know what you meant, just had to razz ya. She is so cute.. hard to believe that she's at the 9month mark already. I'm so glad things are going well! :D

Wow Michelle,
She is soo darn cute. Be happy she is not crawling for now. My little miss does not stop.... our girls seem to be on the same sleeping schedule. Please send me your email again in my fog last month I must have not saved it. I want to send the moon cake recipe to you.
