Once again momma is running late on your monthly posts! We have had such a busy summer of fun that I let it slip.
You continue to be the happiest baby ever! Even while teething you are so smiley!
You have 8 teeth now! 4 on top and 4 on the bottom, luckily you have learned not to bit so much.
You are still nursing but it is definitely slowing down. I think we will quit right at one year old.
You are pulling yourself up and walking around the living room slowly and holding on to the furniture.
You do not like to be penned in the living room. You have learned that you can slide the toy box and crawl through. You look back and see if anyone noticed and if they did you do a super fast crawl to the other side of the room.
You say momma and dada in the right context and we love to hear it!
You are already 9 months old! Where has the time gone! You are such a happy baby and we cannot imagine our family without you!
You are crawling EVERYWHERE!! Momma forgot how challenging it is once a baby becomes mobile!
You have 8 teeth and I think the 9th one is getting ready to pop through
You are in 12 month clothes, but you will be in 18 month clothes in no time.
You are pulling yourself up on everything. Your favorite thing is sissy’s kitchen. You like to pull open the cabinets and sort of sway while standing.
You smile all of the time! You think it is hilarious when someone says noodles. Your smile is very toothy and it sort of looks like you are growling. Your cousin Jameson asked if you were a mean girl with a mean face, but it is just because you have so many teeth.
You are still a biter
You love to eat! I do not think we have come across one type of food you do not like!
You are starting to play with your sister. You love to flop on her
I have been terrible with monthly updates sweet Elise. The months are just flying by, much to our dismay. You are growing so fast! I just cannot believe that we have had you for 8 whole months already. So, here are the things from the last 3 months that have been happening.
Elise 6 months
Elise 7 months
Elise 8 months
You are getting teeth so quickly. You had 2 teeth by 3 months, 5 total by 7 months and at this point you are working on your 8th!
You are very bitey! Nursing is challenging, but momma just watches for your signs of an upcoming bite. You do like to bite daddy and sissy though.
You are very talkative. We think you are saying momma, you say it when you want me and when you are sad. So maybe that is your first word?
You LOVE Brielle! When you are sad she can just come over to you and you smile so big. She loves to make you laugh and you laugh so easily for her.
You are eating all sorts of fruits, veggies, puffs and yogurt bites. So far we have not found much that you will not eat.
You are almost crawling. You get up on all fours and rock and even scoot a little. You have also started pulling yourself up to standing on your knees when holding onto the toy box.
You are starting to get hair. Really blond on top and dark in the back, just like Brielle.
We adore you Elise and we are so happy that you joined our family!!
Momma is a little late writing this update. You have been keeping me busy!
You roll all over, back to front and back again.
You growl, it is hilarious!!!
You laugh at everything Brielle does, you love her!
We moved you out of you infant carrier into a rear facing seat and you seem to like it.
You are already in 12 month clothes!
You are already 4 months old! I just cannot believe it. You are growing and changing so fast, it feels like we just brought you home.
You laugh all of the time and smile very easily. You are so happy!
Your first tooth has made an appearance. We noticed it on Valentines Day.
You are a good size little lady! I had to take you to the doctor for a cold this month and you are already 18.5 pounds! You just moved into 9 month size clothes.
You really love Brielle, she tells you stories and sings you songs and you are always smiling and laughing at her.
You are a great day sleeper. You spend a lot of time snoozing in your swing (Brielle never did that). Although, you are getting pretty close to the weight limit so we need to get you out of that thing.
Night time is good as long as you are snuggled up next to me. We need to get you into your crib this month.
We love you so much and cannot imagine our family without you!
