Tessa had her nine-month well check at the end of August. As for her stats, she weighed 17 lbs, 1 oz (30%) and measured 29" long (92%). She nurses five times a day, and in order for her to get a full feeding I have to sequester us in my upstairs bedroom because she gets so distracted by what her sisters are saying and doing. Along with nursing, she eats a jar of baby food and some finger foods after each breakfast and lunch feeding. For dinner she sits at the table with the family and eats whatever we're eating before I nurse her. She still takes two naps during the day and sleeps 10-11 hours each night. Her hair is slowly filling in, but still no teeth. She crawls, occasionally claps, and is learning how to wave. I predict she'll be walking before her first birthday because she loves to pull up to the standing position and let go. I'll share more about her personality and Tess-isms when she's ten months old, so in about a week.
