Sweet Elliotte! The months are just flying by! She is a little thing still. Her 9 month check up was this week and she weighed in at 16 pounds 15 ounces and measured 26 inches. She literally hasn't grown up like at all since 6 months! She's a cute little shorty!
Elliotte is wearing 6-9 month clothing and size 3 diapers still. She now has 5 teeth and the 6th is just nearly through. It's been a killer month with teething!
Elliotte is crawling all over the place now! She gets quicker by the day! She is also pulling up on everything and cruises along the furniture. She lets go and stands on her own frequently. Such a big girl! She loves being mobile and able to catch up to sister now!
Elliotte babbles mama and dada now. She doesn't associate meaning to them yet. She is a grunter and a raspberry blowing pro! She is absolutely in love with her sister and her days stay busy chasing her around and playing with Addy. She loves her little table to play with and her push toy.
Elliotte is nursing much less frequently as of this month. She still nurses between 4-5 times a day, but they are quick and efficient. She loves meal times and many nights out eats her big sis. She loves fruits especially but hasn't turned down much. She wasn't a fan of asparagus the first night we had it but the next time she found it acceptable! She loves chicken and cheese as well.
We are finally sleeping through the night!!! Elliotte has still been waking as least one time each night and crying. She is definitely not a sleep lover. She still fights naps like a crazy woman! It takes a lot of convincing that she is in need of a nap.
This is the 'classic Elli' look. It cracks me up everytime!!
Elliotte is so much fun these days! She is finally making it through church!! She still doesn't enjoy it and cries but we are getting there! She is Mommy's girl still. I not-so-secretly love it! She won't let just anyone hold her and is very stingy with her smiles, but if she recognizes you she so sweet! I love wrestling with her, one of her favorite things. Elliotte is also what we call a 'patter.' She loves to pat us when we are holding her. If we are not paying attention to her she crawls over and starts patting us. Its adorable and aggressive all the same! I so love this precious little girl!
