First (but definitely not most important), I have written 500 posts here on MandyMom.com in the last 3+ years. Pretty amazing, since I definitely don't feel like I post here a lot.
But, the biggest deal is that Molly Jo Jubilee is nine months old. She hit the big 9 [months] on the 17th, but she her nose was bubbling with snot, her eyes were red and watery, and she didn't look like the cheery baby we know and love, so I figured I'd wait a bit to snap a photo.
Isn't she adorable?
She's growing fast. She weighs about 14 pounds, is super skinny (but long), and loves to chow down. Don't let her small size deceive you!
She's excited about being able to get around speedily, pull up on things, and take a couple steps (as long as she has a grip on something).
And no, she's not sleeping through the night. She still wakes every 2-3 hours to nurse, but that's pretty typical for our babies until they are well over a year old.
She has three teeth on the bottom, a fourth bottom tooth on the verge of poking through, and I believe that her two top teeth should be popping out any time now (because her gums are swollen, and the teeth appear to be moving down).
That grin brightens our days!
