Gretchen is growing! We went to the doctor this week for her 9-month visit. She is healthy and staying on the charts. 20 lbs. 6 oz. (75%) and 29.5 inches (97%). It was a no-shot visit and Charlotte got a sticker. Our restless nights have still been restless but the last two Gretchen finally did awesome again. Wednesday she woke up at 1 a.m. but didn't need to eat and Thursday she woke up at 3 a.m. for a quick bottle and went back to sleep. I tell ya....the last few weeks have been rough with her waking up multiple times. Perhaps the Tylenol that I gave her helped her sleep. I think we might stick to that routine for a little while. (Just pretend I didn't just say drug the baby.)

Today Gretchen also hit another milestone. She successfully (twice!) went from laying on her back to a sitting position. Wowzers!! What a big girl. She's eating a ton and really wants to feed herself. She's been eating things like noodles, PBJ, bread, banana, soup, peas, yogurt, fruit chunks, etc. Gretchen looks at us eating and I can just see her little mind thinking, "I want that too!" It's sad to think that in three short months we'll be celebrating her 1st birthday. How sad.
