9 Months!!

Today Lily is 9 months!! She is perfect!

  • She weighs 17lbs 4oz, and is 27inches long
  • She walks everywhere holding our hands or the furniture
  • She crawls backwards (and forwards for the first time today)
  • She pulls herself around on her belly or rolls around
  • She eats most table foods- and LOVES to feed herself
  • She loves to eat puffs
  • She has mastered the sippy cup!
  • She has graduated to mostly 6-9 or 6-12 month clothes (although her jeans are still 3-6)
  • She fits in a size 2 shoe!
  • Her favorite toys are her piano, learning table, stacking cups and lately her doll.
  • She loves to watch "4 Square" and "In the Night Garden"(creepy show, lol)
  • She makes the cutest faces and noises when she is mad
  • She plays with Mylo- grabs for him, chases him, squeals when he interacts with her
  • She is back to sleeping through the night
  • She has 1 and a 1/2 teeth

This month Lily had a lot of firsts:

  • First trip to the splash pad
  • First trip to the beach
  • First time at a cottage
  • First trip to the zoo
  • First Beke Reunion (where she had her first hay ride)
  • First time having Ice Cream

We have Lily's babysitter all set up for when I go back to work, its so hard to think about, but its only 4 months away!! I feel much better about it having a wonderful lady lined up to take care of Lily.

I am really looking forward to my next 4 months home with Lily- she is growing so fast and learning new things everyday- it is so much fun to watch her change and really develop an adorable personality!!

We have a few big things happening this September:

  • Lily and I are going to Ohio for a few days to visit Brad, Laura and the kids.
  • Lily will be in the Baby Show at the Paris Fair on Monday the 7th
  • Lily is going to start swimming lessons

I will upload some more pictures in a seperate post :)
