We have a tooth!

Little E turned 10 months old on Monday and today her first tooth is just pushing out from her gums. She was extra cranky this past weekend waking up multiple times in the night and not able to get herself back to sleep. I was beginning to think that she was going to be the toothless wonder forever.

Little E also learned two new tricks last week. She finally figured out how to get from the crawl position to sitting. I must say it is very strange to find her in her crib sitting up and waiting for me to pick her up. Little E also pulled herself up to standing by herself for the first time. She is really making progress with her gross motor skills these past few weeks. She is a crawling freak of late. She still mostly army crawls but throws in a few real "steps" crawling off her belly.

Little E has a new favorite food. She loves pasta. Little E has been doing better and better with table foods. She now eats puffs and yogurt drops like a pro. She also did quite well with cooked carrots. We also introduced a sippy cup with a straw this week and she loves it. She happily sips away on her water. It is the cutest thing.

Well not much else going on here. I will try to get a shot of the tooth when it really makes its appearance in the next few days.

Hello I have a 9 month old and he is totally the opposite of your bundle of joy. Takory(my son's name) is still breastfed and he will not drink from a bottle at all. I have introduced him to a sippy cup and he will sip out of it for a while but then he stops. I guess we have to keep trying everyday. He has 2 teeth and one is coming in at the top.
