Happy 9 Months Lyla Faith!!
I can't believe I am already saying 9 months...how time goes by so quickly when you're having fun.
What have you been up to....
Weight about 19 lbs
Wearing size 3 diapers
Wearing size 9-12 month clothes
We go next Monday for all of your stats so I will put them in once we get it all back.
You have had a pretty rough month with eye procedure and sickness. This last weekend we had two doctors visits and an ER visit before you started feeling better. Your fever got up to 104.5 and I was one worried momma. Thankfully we got it down quickly and your chest x-ray and other tests came back normal so they say it was just a virus, but whatever it was I am so glad that you are better.
You still LOVE to sit in your bouncy..that is probably your favorite place, besides your high chair when you are eating well.
You usually eat yogurt for breakfast, fruit and veggie for lunch, fruit and veggie for dinner (we have tried fish and cheese during this time also and you seem to do well with it) Sometimes you will eat an applesauce pouch for late snack at daycare and before bed other nights too.
You nurse in the mornings when you get up and before bed and during the weekends or when I am home with you. You take a bottle still really well at daycare and you love to drink water and juice out of your sippy cup, although you would rather us hold it for you :)
Elmo is your absolute favorite right now. We have two DVD's and you love them so much.
I love to see your little eyes light up when I walk in the door to pick you up from daycare, nap or anytime you haven't seen me for at least a few seconds :)
When you were sick you really took a liking to your daddy, it is hard with his work schedule for you to spend time with him so I hated that you were sick but you did get some good bonding time in with the both of us.
You are still not even attempting to crawl, which is starting to worry us, but I just pray that you will in your own time. You have a very strong sitting position. You will roll all over the place and when we put you on the tile you scoot yourself backwards so I am hoping these steps you will put together and get it soon. They also just changed the rooms around at daycare which should have them able to put you on the floor more there as well, so I hope you learn by example from the one that does walk and crawl in there now.
When you see me go in the bathroom and start the water you get SO excited. You kick your feet, laugh and I have to be careful because you will almost jump out of my arms to get in there. I have been letting you stay in there a little longer here lately to splash in the water. You have started to turn yourself sideways in your little duck and take all of your letters and throw them over the side and try to get them all back on. You also love to take the wash cloth and dip it in the water then hold it up and hear the water drip from the rag to your tub of water.
You think you are the funniest little thing on the block. You love watching videos of yourself (vain?? ha) I think it is really that you just love watching babies because when one comes on your video or TV you stop and just start laughing. I can hold you up to the mirror and you entertain yourself for ever.
Zeus still loves to entertain you. We haven't been able to go outside because the mosquitos are so bad, but we usually go out there and let him run around so you can see how silly he can be.
You still aren't the best sleeper but I just hope that with time you will get it down. You do flips in your bed at night I don't think you ever really settle down so that is the reason you wake up so often. It usually is only one time now a days.
You love puffs or any finger food that you can feed yourself. I think that you are going to be very independent because you always want to grab the spoon and feed yourself.
You truly make my heart melt every time I look at you. You are such an amazing, happy, full of entertainment little girl.
I want to keep you small forever but I can't wait until you grow up and see what things you accomplish because I know that you will do so much.
You are loved.....
To the moon and back!!!!
