Good thing there's a 29th this time around...

...because ELLIE RYAN is 9 months old today!
I know, I know...slightly hard to believe. Our little sweetpea is growing up so fast! I haven't taken any pictures yet today, but I will later, and I'll update this with pictures then! I'll also update after her 9 month check up. Here's a look at life at nine months:
  • Ellie is crawling all over the place and quite rapidly.
  • She now has 7 teeth--four up top, and three down below
  • She also has three other teeth sitting just below the gums
  • Ellie is eating just about anything, including some table foods--peas, chopped cooked carrots, corn, small pieces of pasta, chopped green beans
  • She says mama and dada, and uses dada for her Daddy (just today he talked to her on the phone, and as soon as he started talking, Ellie's face lit up and she said "dada" cute!)
  • She still naps 3 times a day: at 10, around 2, and a small cat nap around 6. Ellie is down for the night at 8:30, and I get her up around 8:30 in the morning.
  • Her smile is absolutely wonderful. When she smiles, everybody smiles!

I am amazed by the three naps...Bruce stopped taking naps at 9 months. He slept 13-14 hours each night. Thankfully he has grown back into naps and now naps for 2-3 hours every afternoon.

She has more teeth than my 16 month old who just got his sixth last week.
