cute kid pictures!

so i don't put a bunch of my baby's pictures up on this blog for many reasons, but i thought i'd share a few. kennedy's growing like a weed! she is wearing 9-12 mo clothes but can get into some 6 month pants because she has a super-skinny waist. the only drawback, they are kind of like high-waters on her :) she has plenty of clothes; i just need to rotate all the 6 month stuff out!

wednesday, dec. 8  marked the last day i breastfed her. i'm a little sad about it but kennedy is happy as a lamb to take a bottle. we went just over 8 months and my goal was 6 so that was pretty good. i was having supply issues and she was ready to wean so there you have it. she takes 4 bottles a day. she has been eating solids for 2 months now, 3 times a day.  her favorite foods are squash, sweet potatoes, pears and advocado. she saw the doctor at 7 months to follow up on her new reflux medicine and she was 16 lbs (still 50%). i'm guessing she's over 17 now. her height was in the 90%.

she goes down at night around 6:30pm and sleeps until 7:30-8am. yes, it's glorious! her naps however, are very, very short (sometimes only 3 naps for 20 minutes each). we're working on them and lately i've had the willpower to let her cry. for example, today she slept 35 minutes, cried for 15 and back to sleep for another 30.

enough "reading" about's the real thing! (the first 5 are part of my portrait project i had to do for my photography class. i got a 95 because i had a cute subject ;-)

i seriously can't believe only 8 months ago she was this tiny...
