How times have changed....

I never realized how busy you truly are with a baby and how that little time you get to yourself you use to catch up on your cleaning and sleeping (not blogging).

Times sure have changed. Our little one is no longer that little. She is actually 9 months old today. She is about 20lbs and 28" long. She is crawling like a mad women around, attempting to stand (but only being able to do it for 2 seconds at time), and is blabbling like crazy. She also already has 3 teeth (2 bottoms and 1 top). So like I said times sure have changed since I last blogged on here.  Even just look at her, she looks so much older!!

What have I learned in those 9 months so far...?
1. Teething tablets are like black magic. I don't understand what they do or how they do it, but they work (almost instantaneously)
2. Daycare is amazing for babies to develop socially as well as work on their attachment anxiety.
3. You can make baby food out of anything practically, and it is fun!! I have mixed the most random things (for example green peppers, bananas, and squash ....wah lah... a dinner a baby will love).
4. Crying it out, though a controversial issue when brought up among a group of moms, worked for us. She now easily sleeps 10+ hours a night (some nights even 12 hours) and only wakes up when she really needs something.
5. Target Up and Up brand Diapers are the best for multiple reasons: best priced, super absorbent, and fit well.
6. There is such thing as "too many toys", babies can become over stimulated and frustrated we have found. Also the more toys=the bigger mess.

Hopefully, I will get a chance to update again, sooner than 9 months from now. Until then :)
