I thought I would just put up a bunch of pics of Melia from over the last few days. She turned 9 months on Sat and decided on that very day that she was now old enough to not nurse anymore. That was that. No heads up or anything. She had been nursing along fine even though she got distracted easily and then realized she had better things to do! I thought at first something was for sure wrong with her but no. She is just growing up. I am pretty sad I have to say! I loved nursing her and I will totally miss it.
She had her 9 month check up today and she gained over a pound! She is now 15lbs13oz!! 2 more and she will be in a size 3 diaper!! As you can see from the pics she gets into everything and is curious about everything. She loves to stand on her own and took a few steps on Thanksgiving and today! We went to the mall over the week end she sat on Santa's lap and didn't cry! She got a pretty serious look on her face though. We will be going to San Diego to visit everyone and can't wait for her to meet my fav Santa who lives there in Poway!
