Ash turned 9 months old on Monday. She weighed 18 lbs at her doctors appt. Still not eating any food...but we are now trying 3 times a day. I have virtually given up on baby food. We give her whatever fruits and veggies we have at the house and let her "feed" herself. She usually puts a couple of pieces in her mouth, and then proceeds to spit them back out. Honestly, it is kind of frustrating. But then I wonder how in the world I can be frustrated when I look at this sweet face. Her likes right now: clapping her hands, waving "bye-bye", books, bubbles, baths, and of course, her bottles. I mean, how else could she pack on 18 lbs? Favorite toys - hands down - my cell phone and the computer cords under my desk. Because they are the most fun and colorful things that she has to play with.
