The tide has turned...

...And Tessa is now heavier than our cat...I think he knew that before I did. He has started acting a bit more deferential to her: hanging out in the same room, sleeping on the bed when she's on it, he even sat close enough for her to pet him. Poor Quincy, we tried to warn you buddy.

Even if he's not king of the castle any more, he is still a handsome boy.

So thirteen and a half pounds it is and two feet tall. She is a strong stander and is actually very near sitting up by herself. We are finding that we are not the parenting type that races our child to the next milestone. I am of course thrilled when she discovers her toes, or passes a toy from one hand to the other, or any number of other minor milestones...but each one makes her less and less of a baby.

Yea - I can finally see the pictures! I think Tessa is WAAAYYY cuter than the cat - just my vote. (Maybe 'cause I've never actually met the cat??!)

Sooo...just had to mention that I checked all my "usual" blogs tonight and yours was the only one without something new...
Let's see some more pics, friend! I'd especially love to see some from your antics while Mindy was there!
Love ya!
P.S.There's no contest. Tessa's a beauty queen! And you're not so bad, either!
