9 months

no check-up this month for elleanor.
we are a little off schedule due to the sick visits we had before christmas.
so we do not go back til mid april for a well check.

big changes on the schedule just happened recently.
we took out a bottle feeding.  went from 4 bottles a day to 3.
she was taking a bottle about every 4 hours but her 1100 bottle had become just hit and miss.
sometimes she wanted it, sometimes half of it, and other times she'd have nothing to do with it.
so we just decided in the past week that we were going to get rid of it.
we now do 3- 8oz bottles instead of the 4 -6oz.
this is what her day now looks like:
700: bottle
830: morning nap
1000:  playtime/errands
1130: lunch
1230/1:  bottle
100: afternoon nap
300:  playtime
500:  dinner
600:  bath
630/7:  bottle
730:  bedtime

ellie loves to wave. her new social skill she has learned this past month.  love it.
she is now in size 3 diapers.  she could prob still fit in a 2 but we got C out of diapers and had almost a full pack of 3's left for her so we just went with it.  and they fit ellie girl just fine.
still full on army crawling.  she puts her knees into every once in a while but is not full out crawling yet. she still certainly gets where she wants to go. 
starting to pull up on things.  her bed, toys, people.
loves loves loves to pull other's hair.  it's the first thing she goes for when she gets close enough.  C isn't to crazy about this bc e will get handfuls of her hair out. 
we are already in full use of the word 'no' with this girl.  basically it started when the moving started.
she hasn't met a food that she didn't like yet.  and we still continue to make all of her food for her.
we have started practicing with some finger foods.  she has tried out smashed up cheerios, itty bitty pieces of whole wheat toast and whole wheat pancakes. 
becoming a pro with a sippy cup.
girlie loves to play patty cake and has started to play peek-a-boo a bit.
she now has 5 teeth fully through and the 6th is making an entrance.
she has been full on attached to mommy this past month, like i can't get out of her sight, pretty sure it has to do with her teething and just wanting to be consoled by mommy.

elleanor, you have grown so much.  i can't wait to see what the next few months will bring.  and can't believe in just 3 short months you will be our 1 year old.  mommy and daddy love you with all our hearts baby girl:)
