You are officially 9 months old. It's December, one of our most favorite months, and we have decked you out in all sorts of fun holiday outfits to commemorate the season! Playing dress up with you is too much fun my dear...so glad you don't mind bows in your hair ;).
A Growing Girl Indeed. I can't believe I'm saying this, but you've already got 6 teeth little one. Four on top and two on bottom...and when people say teething is hard work, that is most certainly NO LIE. You're doing pretty well in learning how to eat "bigger" foods and chomp at the bit when I have something you want to taste. You are in size 3 diapers and still wearing 6-12 month clothing, and I estimate you weigh about 20 pounds. You're still leaning out, but those fluffy fat cheeks and little pot belly are still there and it's so cute I can hardly stand it. I may kiss you 1,000 times a day.
Eating Like a Big Girl. You're still downing 5 bottles a day and having snacks/food 2-3 times. You still love anything mixed with oatmeal, animal cracker cookies (the Gerber variety), puffs, and baby cheese treats. You like to feed yourself and you get really upset if I try to "baby you" too much when it's mealtime...you're quite the mess maker Caroline, and I am constantly hosing off your highchair and sweeping food off the floor (such a glamorous life, right?)
Nighty Night, Sleep Tight. We have FINALLY gotten you back to sleeping through the night-THANK THE HEAVENS! It was a rough few nights of letting you cry it out, but it had to be done and it came highly recommended from other mommies who I trust so I knew it was best for all of us.
You are one active child, and are now only taking 2 naps a day, about 1.5 hours each. Not too shabby, though...hard to complain since you are just so dang cute.
Showing off your bottom teeth ;)
Snarl Face...you do this ALL.THE.TIME
All dressed up for your first visit to Opryland Hotel
The only picture I managed to get with the number 9...you're hard to keep still!
Hugs and Kisses Sweet Baby!!
