Well, Cheyenne is just over 9 months and is growing like a weed!! I can’t believe that this past 9 months went so much faster than the previous 9 months that I was pregnant!! Somehow that doesn’t seem fair!! Although I have to say she is progressing just as fast as when she was developing in the womb! I can’t believe it’s less than 3 months until her first birthday!!
Cheyenne got to go on her first vacation and trip a couple of weeks ago when we went down to spend a week with Aunt Leigh Ann & Uncle Christian to help out with Claire and Rachel after Leigh Ann came home from the hospital after having Zoe. Cheyenne, Rachel & Claire all played so well together and had a great time!
She is cruising (walking along holding onto the furniture) very well and she will walk with assistance. Much thanks to Aunt Leigh Ann and Uncle Christian for sending the little car/walker back with us from Austin! Cheyenne loves it and is walking behind it all by herself. She crawls up to it and stands up behind it and will walk across the room or if I put her behind it, she will take off walking across the room pushing it. Sometimes, she will even stop and dance, then continue walking across the room! It is so cute!!

Cheyenne also got anew big girl carseat!! She is growing so fast that her little infant carrier was getting too small and she wasn’t comfortable in it anymore…not to mention she was nearing the weight maximum for it. So she has a new carseat and is so cute in it!! She rides much more comfortably now and seems to like it!

Cheyenne also has a new tooth coming in! She is getting one of her top teeth in right now and she is taking it much easier than the first two!! It broke through a few days ago and is barely visible, but it is through and will be all the way in before we know it!
She hasn’t been sleeping as well at night or naptime, but that is to be expected when teething, plus she is going through a major milestone getting ready to walk, so that could be contributing to the sleep issues. A few weeks ago, I started sleep training with her and it was hard at first to put her down and listen to her cry or fuss until she finally put herself to sleep. She is getting much better at bedtime, naptimes are still difficult because if she sees light, she thinks she should be up!! Although at least she doesn’t lay back there and cry anymore, she just sits in her crib and plays for a while until she falls asleep. Hopefully soon, she will get back to regular sleeping habits and not have any more problems.
Cheyenne is just changing every day before my eyes. I can’t believe it’s already been 9 months since she was born. Her hair is getting so long and starting to get thicker. Her hair is so fine and absolutely straight…not a curl on her little head…just like her Momma’s was! She is the most beautiful baby girl and I couldn’t have asked for a happier baby!! She is absolutely the happiest baby I have ever seen…she is always (almost) in a good mood and smiling or laughing.
