As of yesterday, Eden is officially 9 months old and that sounds so old! Most of the time, I don't have those "stop aging" feelings that a lot of moms have. I love all of her new developments and I know it will just get better. I do have fleeting moments when I feel sad that certain things won't last, and I try to really soak up her baby time in those moments. (Like when she falls asleep in my arms and she still fits so perfectly in there when I rock her.)
Anyway, during the last month she has made quite a few developments! She's been rolling over with ease, scoot-crawling and has 2 new teeth up top! She gets closer and closer to crawling everyday. She also loves to pull herself up - especially using people. She likes to stand at the ottoman and play with her toys (and try to eat the TV remotes).
She is such a good eater and likes to try little pieces of things we eat. She even likes Salmon and feta cheese, it's hilarious.
She can do two "tricks" and she's getting really close to getting a third, which is "wave bye-bye". She has done it a few times but still working on consistency. She can clap and shake her head which is adorable.
She is mostly formula fed now as I am officially drying up. I used to get 4-5 ounces every few hours when I pumped at work and now I get 1! Part of me is sad that I'm not able to continue to provide much nourishment for her, but I know I'm lucky to have been able to do it for as long as I did. She still nurses a few times per day and night, but I don't think she gets very much. I started taking the birth control pill again a few weeks ago, and I'm sure that is the culprit. I know it took us 2.5 years to conceive Eden, but I figure it would be God's sense of humor that I would get pregnant again within a few months, way before we're ready to entertain the idea of another child!
