Tessa is growing up so fast! I can't believe all she can do now. At her 9 month appointment she weighed 13.3 lbs and was 26 1/2 inches tall. Making her officially below the charts for weight and 20th percentile for height. We also learned that she has a heart murmur but we'll find out more about it when we go to a cardiologist on the 17th. Hopefully it's ok and not a big deal. She loves to crawl all around, pull herself to a stand, and walk around furniture. She loves to go swimming, on walks, swing, and LOVES animals (especially Nana's dogs and the ducks at the lake). Tessa decided to make a lot of changes in her little life right at nine months. One night she just up and decided not to nurse anymore! She wouldn't take a bottle with breast milk or formula either. We were a little worried what could be wrong but after a week and a half of not drinking any milk she changed her mind and starting taking formula from a bottle, but was done with nursing. I guess she just thought she was too old for nursing. During the week she wasn't drinking milk she taught herself to sleep through the night though!!! Yahoo! From 8 pm to 7 am! It has been so nice to finally get some sleep. Thank you everyone for all your suggestions, many of them helped. Since she's been taking formula she's been putting on a little more weight too. I guess I just made skim milk :). Our little peanut is cute and happy as can be. We just love her so much and she makes everything so much more fun! Here a some pictures of her at 8 and 9 months.
