Weight & Length: I’m unsure of both right now but she is going in to the doctor soon so I’ll update.
Milestones: On November 18th Dessa popped her first tooth! She now has one little bottom tooth on the right side of her mouth (your left). I’m so happy I now know she has teeth. I was getting a little worried there for a minute.
Sleep: She still isn’t sleeping through the night but she is sleeping more and more in her pack n play. We figured out that if we put a heating pad in the pack n play and make the mat warm before we put her in that she sleeps better in it. Dessa still wakes up at midnight and then again at 2 A.M. but at least she isn’t kicking me in the face all night.
Clothing: Dessa is still in size 3 diapers but is slowly out growing her 9 month clothing. I’ve been putting her in more and more 12 month size cloth. The sleeves and pant length in her 9 month clothes are getting too short but most of the 12 month size cloth are baggy in the torso area. She seems to be right in the middle of both sizes so nothing is fitting her perfectly. We are now making the slow transition to 12 month size clothes.
Baby Gear We Love: We got Dessa a new travel size pack n play to sleep in since we can’t fit her crib in our room. We decided on the Fischer-Price Ultra-Lite Day and Night Play Yard in Chevron. We liked this one because it isn’t as bulky as other pack n plays and is light weight. Nick and I figured that after the move she’d be using her crib and we could use this for travel and camping for the next few years so it won’t go to waste.
Likes: She recently discovered that we have pet ferrets and she is obsessed. She is constantly crawling over to their cage so she can peek in on them. When they are out and about she loves to pet them and laugh at them as they bounce around. They are probably her most favorite thing ever.
Dislikes: Eating baby food. She has figured out that “normal” food is far more tasty than anything pureed in a jar.
