We've Got an 8-Monther!



Yesterday Tessie turned 8 months old! I can't believe we have such a big baby girl. She has changed so much and she's getting to be so grown up!



We measured her yesterday and she's now 17 lbs. 6 oz. and a full 29 inches long! She's getting so tall! Since 29 inches is the limit for her infant carseat, she's graduated to a big girl carseat.

This is going to take some adjustment on my part, since Tess can't sit up very well yet and I've grown dependent on using her baby carseat as a carrier to take her places. She can sit up in the grocery cart basket seat, but only with a considerable lean to one side! So, that's going to take some practice!




Tess' peach fuzz hair is also starting to come in more. She now has enough fuzz to hold a clip on top of her head--at least for a little while. The clip is no match for the back arch, however.



She has a sparkly personality and a funny sense of humor. There are all sorts of things she thinks are just hilarious: Dad, Elmo, fake coughing, playing "puppy" and "kitty" with Mom, back arching, running in the air, screeching, doing anything upside down, and blowing raspberries.
What a little nut!

Forward-facing carseat already? She IS growing up fast!

Kenzie would like to play the puppy game, please.

It's hard to tell from the pic, but she's still rear-facing in her carseat. Just a bigger seat.

Attack of the puppy! Sit Rebel, sit! Brooke was VERY entertained by the video.

FOUR days since I've had a Tessie fix... can we have some more pics, please? I'd like to see her in a hat, preferably...
