First Toothbrush and Coxsackievirus

I brushed Tate's teeth for the first time today with her brand spanking new "My Little Pony" toothbrush. She loved it! So glad she feels a little better today. She has had a rough couple of days with high fever and just feeling yucky! Her daddy took her to the doctor yesterday and she was diagnosed with Coxsackievirus. No fun! I'll be glad when she can tell me what's wrong and what hurts! I hate for my baby too be sick and hurt. Here is a picture of Tate not feeling so well and some of her brushing her teeth.

10 mos. old

Tate is 10 mos. old and into everything! She is doing so many things. She still doesn't like to eat too much unless it's junk, but she loves her milk! She is standing on her own, saying, "What's That" to everything, da-da, ma-ma, Bal (for Bella), bye-bye, etc. Now she helps me put things in the dryer, loves getting into mommy's q-tips and cabinets, and loves sleeping with her buddy (glow-sea horse).

Today, Zach and I bought Tate her first outside swing to put on our back porch. It was so pretty outside, and we couldn't just sit inside and and not enjoy the pretty weather. She loved it, and wanted to swing forever!

Tate and Bella love cheese puffs. I found some Gerber cheese puffs at the store, and they were almost $5.00 for a small can. So, I went to the chip aisle and found a huge Great Value pack for $2.00! Awesome! Just enough for Tate, Bella and I! Tate is really becoming very independent. She wants to feed herself a bottle and solid foods. She loves Cheerios and any finger foods. Finally, today she started eating solids again. She has been sick and not wanting to eat, but today she is all about it again!

Have you met Baby Tate? Her cousins Camryn and Jacey call her Baby Tate. I think she will always be known as Baby Tate even when she is 16! Tate is 8 months old now and growing too fast! I've def. been really bad about blogging lately b/c Tate is all about being in my lap and not letting her mommy blog. Some new things about Tate since I've blogged last. Tate is crawling around every where. She started at the end of 7 mos, but really got good at it when she turned 8 mos. She says, da da, ma ma, bye-bye while waving, points at objects, has two bottom teeth and another coming in at the top. She claps on command, and loves her favorite video/show, "Choo Choo Soul"! She eats 8 oz. of BM/formula 3-4 times a day, and solids three times a day. I'm making her food which is so much easier than I thought not to mention less expensive. She loves drinking juice out of a straw. Tate is 16 lbs and 10 ozs, pulls up on objects, and loves when I read her books. Nursery at church is finally something she enjoys. Already, she wants to do things on her own. She has to put her bottle in her mouth by herself, and picks up her own food all by herself. Tate is my best friend, smiles all the time, and is the sweetest babygirl I've ever met!

Have you seen my new earrings? My mommy and my Mee Mee took me to Claires in the Galleria when I turned 6 mos. to get my ears pierced!! We had so much fun at the mall. Tate did really well after the first 20 minutes of holding her breath and not being a happy camper. Poor baby!! She held onto her Mee Mee for a while. Now I can buy her all kinds of cute little earrings!
On her first New Years, we stayed home and brought the New Years in together. Tate partied in her walker. Daddy and Tate went to sleep around 930p, and I stayed up and watched the ball drop!! I wouldn't have had it any other way!!

Yes, I'm just a little behind on my posting. I will be updated here in a couple of days. Here are some pictures of Tate's baby dedication and her first Gatlinburg trip with my family. Her Uncle Jarrett prayed over her at church for her dedication. He said the sweetest things, and the sweetest prayer. Thank you Uncle Jarrett.
Our Gatlinburg trip was so much fun. Mom and Dad treated our whole family to an awesome condo, and we made some really fun memories. It's so neat to see Jacey, Cami, and Tate all together in Gatlinburg. It seems like yesterday Jarrett, and I were children walking in the village with our cousins. I can't wait until next yr.

12 lbs. and 13 ozs.
75th percentile- height
25th-50th percentile- weight

Tate is 4 mos. old! Her 4 mo. doctor's appt. was today. She did great! The nurse gave her 2 shots, and one PO immunization. Bless her heart, her little legs hurt. I gave her some Tylenol afterwards, and she was as happy as can be. Tate is laughing out loud, smiling all the time, making all kinds of noises with her mouth what they call, "raspberries", turning over both ways, doing mini-push ups, trying to crawl, and growing like a weed. She fits in her little exercauser and loves it. She is still sleeping through the night. Tate eats 5 oz. of BM every 3 hours, and can now eat rice cereal and green beans!! I can't wait to see her eat green beans! She has such a sweet little personality. She is always smiling and she loves her mommy so much!

Popsee took Mom, Jacey, Camryn, Tate, and me to Waffle House this past Sat. We had so much fun. Zach was out of town, so Tate and I took advantage of it and spent the weekend with Mee Mee and Popsee! The food was so good. The girls had so much fun! It sure was "interesting with a 3 mo. old, 4 yr. old, and 2 yr. old all in the same booth. I love these memories! Thanks Popsee... Your girls love you!
