We've had some BIG milestones this past month!
She started Mother's Day Out just one day a week. She is in a very clingy-mommy phase and gets hysterical when I drop her off. I guess it is a good thing we're doing it. Definitely good for her to socialize with other babies. The teachers assure me she is fine soon after I leave.
She's very vocal at home (she's definitely found her voice) but is really quiet around other people. Although, she's getting a little better with strangers and will sometimes smile unless she thinks I am about to leave her.
She pulled up in the laundry basket for the 1st time on September 9th, had her first scary fever (103) and illness September 10th and we flew to my brother's wedding the next morning. That was a day I'd rather not re-live.
She fell off the charts for her 9 month appointment.
14lbs, 12 oz
27" height (25th percentile)
17.25cm head circumference (44th percentile)
She is such a peanut!!!
I lowered her crib, although she hasn't pulled up in the bed yet.
She has become a belly sleeper, and it is the cutest.
She loves, loves, loves her lovies!
She'll even cuddle her socks and suck her thumb because they are the same material.
Just before her 10 month birthday, she started to really crawl.
It was amazing. One day she figured it off and now she is fast!
She also got her first tooth on Oct. 2nd
Knock on wood, teething has been relatively easy for us (minus a little fussiness).
She's still eating at 6:30, 10:30, 1, 3:30 and 6:30.
We're trying to fatten her up a little. She loves eating almost anything, particularly veggies and anything she can pick up and feed herself.
We've been going to the library for story time and she LOVES it. She also loves the wooden balls that go with one of her toys, anything yellow, her yellow smiley face rattle/ball, and BOOKS!
She's almost saying "dada", sort of waves (but never on command) and loves to clap.
She has a lot of nick names: love bug, stinky, stinky pants (sorry, future Livy), peanut, and little girl.
She lights up when she sees her Daddy and it melts my heart.
We love you lots!
