So much has happened!

In the past week Bella has hit some wonderful milestones! She is now 9months old!

She has 3 teeth now. She enjoys toast, pancakes, and most breads (all plain). She also has tried rotisserie chicken, italian meatballs, raviolis, and pumpkin. She is getting better at feeding herself fingerfoods, and mashing/chewing her food too. We recently bought some Gerber wheels and some puffed corn sticks - they resemble cheetos, but at veggie dip flavored, and the wagon wheels are carrot flavored. She loves them both and gobbles them up FAST!

She is crawling on all fours now, pulling up and cruising. She doesn't have her balance to stand on her own yet, but we are practicing, and she is doing wonderfully! She can wave "Hi" and can even say it too. She can also wave bye bye, but she doesn't say that yet. She pets the kitties and the dogs and says 'niiiice' which comes out sounding like "eeyyyyyyeeee". If you ask her where your nose is, she will grab it, and if you ask her how big she is, she will raise her hands in the air for "So BIG!!" She is making "gug gug" sounds and babbling up a storm!

Her 9 month checkup was on the 6th, and she weighed 17.5lbs, and was 28inches long. They said her growth is great and she is looking wonderful!

Other new developments: She no longer wants to lay still while getting dressed, or getting her diaper changed! It's pretty frustrating! Also she is throwing little tantrums when she doesn't get what she wants. She leans forward and goes face down on the floor and just lets out this big long cry like her world is being shattered! She isn't throwing her self around... yet.. but I won't be surprised when it happens!

Kevin started his new day shift today, had to get up at 3:30am! It's weird with him not here, but at the same time kinda nice that I don't have to worry about being too loud or waking him up. We are having pork chops and sauerkraut for dinner, gonna trow it in the crock pot around 1. He is going to be sooo exhausted for the next couple weeks, until his body adjusts to the new schedule, but in the end I think it is a god change for us!

That being said, My little Princess is stirring from her nap.. she's been asleep for almost 2 hours! WOOHOO!
