Nayeli is 9 months!

Nayeli is 9 months today and we are thankful to God for our little miracle.

Shane weighed her over the weekend and she is 18lbs. She started wearing size 2-3 diapers this past week. She has more poo diapers now that she is eating 3 times a day. Nayeli is breastfeeding alot more and doesn't care for her bottle anymore. I love making her baby food. Nayeli's nurse said I can start giving her toast, cheerios, pasta, cheese and cottage cheese. I am a little scared but will do it slowly.

Nayeli woke up at 9am today and surprised me and Shane on how long she is sleeping. We felt the need to check on her to make sure she was ok. She was sound asleep. Nayeli has her clock set at 8pm to go to sleep. The minute it strikes 8 she is fast asleep. Shane and I still hold her upright for 20 to 30 minutes so she doesn't puke. Her fourth dosage of Reglan is skipped because she is sleeping. If she starts puking like she did two weeks ago we will have to wake her up and give it to her.

We are amazed on how big she is getting and how much she has changed. She loves clapping her hands and is very vocal. She is trying really hard to rock back and forth when she is on her hands and knees. She also pushes her head against her crib and pak n play to try to get up. She has a 9 month check up coming up and her hearing test next month. These past 9 months have gone by so fast and watching her go through milestones makes us want her to stay this way for alot longer. Happy 9 months Nayeli we love you so much.

Mark 10:16
And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

God took Nayeli in his arms and blessed her.
Nayeli loves her bow. It's hard for her to keep it on. Nayeli meets Sonya for the first time.

Happy 9 months Nayeli. You've come such a long way and you are such a lovely little girl!
We are so pleased to see how much progress she is making. You are right Liz, where does the time fly!
Good luck with the feeding, we're hoping that Nayeli will soon not need the anti reflux medicines anymore.
Big hugs from the UK.
PS: I have already given Alina pasta and cottage cheese. She cannot chew yet( no teeth:), so she gags on the bigger pieces. I still mash everything up for her. But she won't eat anything new before she sees it first and sticks her fingers in it. It's all messy but it works.

Happy 9 month birthday Nayeli. Liz she is so beautiful that is so great that she is going to be able to take more by mouth and is getting so active. Praying that she continues not to reflux as much.
