We've gone on lots of adventures these past few months, we've had visits from both grandparents, and we went to Utah for a week to see everyone else! I left her alone for the first time with my mom while my dad, brothers and I went on our annual camping/hunting trip, it was a little hard on me, but I knew she was in good hands, and of course did fantastic, so now I feel better about leaving her, especially as she's done nursing and just has a bottle. With all our visitors, we went to the zoo, on some hikes, and to the park! Now that the weather has finally cooled down, we've been able to spend lots of time outside, and Brielle loves it! She loves going everywhere, and has the cutest "grass" crawl because she doesn't like the feeling of grass on her knees. She tries to eat the occasional rock or leaf still, but we're slowly learning that's not okay.
At her 9 month check up we learned that she's tall and skinny, measuring at 29 inches long and 17.8 pounds. That puts her in 90th percentile for height and 30th for weight. The doc suggested supplementing some formula because she was too busy to nurse long enough to get the right amount, and that has made a huge difference. She would much rather eat on the go, being able to take her milk wherever she fancies, so she's gained a little bit, which is good. She also loves big people food, if she see's us eating something and we don't have something for her to eat, it's bad news. She's successfully tried most things and liked them, although she is becoming a little picky with her veggies, so we have to play games at dinner, or mask the taste with something a little sweeter.
I cannot believe how fast time is flying and that she will be a year in just under two months, but it is so much fun. She is so happy all the time and loves to play games and just explore and learn, I am so blessed to be her mom and can't wait to see what the next few months bring! And now, a photo dump with lots of wonderful smiles. :)
