Alice: Month Nine

It's been a while since an Alice update, 3 months to exact. Funny thing is I had a post drafted for month 7, month 8 and yet here we are at month 9. I think that speaks volumes to how these last three months have been: busy. A lot changes in 3 months - crawling, standing, dancing, eating... I think she might be considering dating next.

This photo cracks me up. Dad was waving a remote in her face to try and get her to sit still and it was a very, very brief moment of utter confusion.

Month nine and currently loving...

- dancing. Apparently, this isn't something you're taught because she just started dancing out of nowhere and I will not be held responsible for these moves. Haha, little girl has a style of her own.

- After a few days of some serious gagging and occasional crying, Alice has finally mastered finger food.

- "baprons" (bib aprons). I think I have the messiest eater ever. Seriously. Apparently, it's mandatory to taste with your hands, your eyes, your hair, your elbows.... A bib just doesn't suffice and those bibs with sleeves just don't stay on. Thanks to pinterest, my mom-in-law made me some of these. Love them.

- when Alice pats my back when I pick her up. I think she started mimicking me since I always do it to her... it's adorable, melts my soft mommy heart.

- clean clothes. Ya, these don't exist much anymore. Crusty, mushed up banana is my newest accessory.

- Sleep. I think as a mom I will forever need more sleep.

- gummy smiles, yep 9 months and still no teeth.

- Coffee. I'm sorry that I hated you when I was pregnant, let's never fight again.

I have no idea what happened to month five, it's all a blur...

  6. Where did you get your onesies from? I think I can still do this with Charlotte...

    1. You can definitely still do this with Charlotte, Carolyn! I don't recommend lying down though, it gets too hard once they hit 5/6 months!!

      The onesies are photoshopped! She's just wearing a plain white onesie :) I have seen some on etsy though if you want to buy some.

  12. As you know, one day it will be all worth it. Just think, you guys will go shopping together to replace all of those mushed banana stained shirts. So much to look forward to.

  14. oh how i heart this wee girlie. from month three on she looks like alice. month one especially is a whole different baby. it's crazy how fast it all goes. love you little lady! also, cole's not allowed to date for a while yet so unless alice is playing the field, it's best she waits a bit too.
