The Love Bug says, "HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!"
Today was Lily's 9 month well checkup and she's doing great! She weighs 21 lbs, 4 oz. (85th %) and is 30.5 in. long (99th %). She is eating up a storm and we haven't come across a single thing that she doesn't like to eat. She loves feeding herself and always wants to try whatever we are eating. The doctor told us to ditch the baby food and just give her cut up pieces of veggies, grilled cheese sandwiches, meat, bread, etc...the sky's the limit! She's going to be SO excited!
Lily's personality is continuing to develop and she is so much fun to be around. She giggles all the time and is into everything. She is SO close to crawling and every day we think is going to be the day that it happens. She gets around by rolling or scooting backwards but now she can go from sitting up to crawling position or lying down really easily, so she's pretty mobile.
She's outgrown her infant carrier so last weekend we bought a Britax convertible car seat and now she seems much more comfortable. It was a lot easier to get her in and out in the snugride, but at least now my back is not breaking from carrying that thing around.
Another thing that Lily loves is the water. Mr. C gives her a bath every night and she goes "swimming" (lying back in the water with her ears under). She splashes and plays and has a great time. She just moved into the big bathtub from her little plastic tub.
I can't believe that the outside world has known my baby as long as I knew her on the inside. Time is flying and I'm trying to savor each wonderful moment.
