Miss Lily had her 9 month well-check today, and hit the 9 month mark last week. For some reason, she seems older to me in the last week or so. I know, I know… she is older!
She’s definitely not losing her chub! Look at those arms! She gets her cheeks, arms and thighs squeezed a lot… both by me and by random strangers. Newscasters seem especially drawn to the chub. First there was one of the newscasters at the station when Lily was on the morning news a couple of weeks ago and then there was a woman from another news station who was doing a piece at the zoo this week and couldn’t resist squeezing Lily’s leg.
Weight: 25 lbs 14oz – off the percentile charts. Ha!
Height: 29 1/2 inches – 95th percentile
Baby Girl, please don’t eat the leaves!
She’s adding some actual crawling into the mix now, instead of sticking to the straight-up army crawl. And you know what I’ve seen several times in the last few days? Pulling up. Yikes! She’s not pulling all the way up to her feet, but she can get to her knees pretty easily and I think the rest of it will follow pretty quickly.
Two! Both popped through a little over a week ago. Can you seem ’em in this picture? They’re on the bottom gum.
She loves pretty much all foods right now (big shocker considering her size!) and especially loves anything she can feed herself. She gets a huge kick out of drinking water from her sippy cup and then opening her mouth to let the water pour out. Yep, she’s pretty much soaking wet after each meal.
She also loves when her brothers act silly to try to make her laugh! The feeling seems to be mutual too, because the boys are constantly trying to make her laugh.
