Eleanor Fay :: 9 months

Hey love bug,

You're almost 10 months as I sit down to write this. Life feels so full right now! I'm so thankful and also a little overwhelmed. Looking back through my pictures of this past month I realized I didn't take nearly as many as I usually do--I think that happened for a few different reasons, but one reason for sure is because I wanted to be really, really present with you girls. I typically feel like I am very present with y'all, but this past month I just didn't really want my phone around and it shows by my lack of pictures :) (I still captured some cute ones of you so don't worry!).

One major event that happened this month is you started saying Mama! Your first word! Hazel's first word was Dada...so I was thrilled that you said Mama first (ha!). I also spent my first night away from you! You did great--I missed you and our family, but it was also reeeally nice to be away for the night.

Gigi has come up from Virginia this month and you and Hazel have enjoyed every second of your time with her!

You bring SO much joy to our family. We love you so much, Nor Nor!

Eating
-You eat a TON :)
-You're not picky and will eat whatever we give you
-Right now you're really into eggs, avocado, peanut butter + jelly, and potatoes
-You're doing a combo of nursing and formula

Sleeping
-Something happened after we stopped traveling because since we've been home your naps have been wayyyyy better than they were this summer! You typically nap from 9:30am-11am and 1pm-2:30/3ish. You're still sleeping through the night from 6pm-6:30/7am. I have no idea if it's teething or not, but this past week you've been waking up anywhere from 10:30pm-1am crying. I give you some quick cuddles and you typically go right back down. You still have no teeth so I'm thinking it might be teething? I have no idea though :)

Temperament 
-You are such a sweetheart
-You love to smile so big and give me so much joy little one!

Physical
-Blue eyes (I can't believe they stuck around!)
-Your hair is starting to come in! Still more in the back then on the top, but it's awfully cute :) You have a few long strands that go over your ears and they always crack me up--such a cutie!
-size 3 diapers
-18 lbs
-You are in everrrrrything. We put up a baby gate to the kitchen just because you kept getting into the recycling and it was driving me crazy ;)
-6 month pj's
-I've started putting you in 9 month clothes just because it's getting cooler outside and that's the size clothes we have from your sister...they're too big, but you're rocking 'em!

Memorable
-saying Mama! Your dad says when I'm not home you crawl around the apartment saying, "mama" and looking for me :)
-I spent my first night away from you
-Lots of sweet time with Gigi

This post feels a little short and not as full of pictures, but know you are so loved and our family enjoys you SO much!

Love you so much, Eleanor Fay.

Always,

Mama
