We've got ourselves a MOVER!

Yes, Tessa is doing very well and it seems like they injected something into her during surgery that has caused her to GO, GO, GO! It's so much fun to play around with this little mover and shaker...you can literally watch this girl's brain work, "What else can I do? What else is there to explore? How else can I impress my parents?" At the rate she's going, she'll be walking by February! Hopefully crawling will be so much fun that she'll stick with it for a while. :)
Here are some recent pictures of our little champ:
First bottle at home...good view of her lip, doesn't she look great!?

The doctor said that she should sleep in a car seat with her no-nos on. Our wonderful neighbors, the Slagers, are letting us use this one...thanks Shannon! Tessa's been sleeping VERY well in it. :)

(Hey Sarah, does this bring back any memories? ;)) Michelle and Josiah Becksvoort came over today and played, it's so much fun to watch Tessa's personality come out in all different ways. (I think we're going to have to work on sharing!) Here she is: Bound & Determined, can't you just see it in her facial expression? Our little Mover & Shaker!

Tessa looks great! Hopefully it won't be difficult for you guys to break her from the 'carseat habit.' She's lookin' pretty comfy in that thing! I loved your comment about sharing--we're working on that over here too--Daniel's true colors are starting to show as well! :)

Tessa is looking so great! What a trooper! And I can't believe how big Josiah is! They are super cute playing together.

She totally looks so cozy in that seat! She looks so cute in the pic with the tongue - SO determined like you said.
Did she get stitches out today? Are they disolvable (spelling?) or do they have to be removed?
