Lydia - 9 Months

Lydia was 9 months old last week. She is 28 1/4 inches tall (75th percentile) and only weighs 16lbs 13 oz (20th percentile). I actually asked the nurse to re-weigh her because I was certain she weighed more than that!

Lydia is still such a super-sweet baby. She tends to be a mama's girl but loves to snuggle with her daddy and giggle at her brother. She is definitely more laid back than Evan and therefore figuring things out a lot later than he did. Here are some random notes from the past month...

*She became a great roller. She can roll to get whatever she has her eye on. According to Evan..."Me & Lydia are good rollers. We should have a rolling class. People who don't know how to roll could come and we would teach 'em."

*She's finally sitting up by herself. She still tends to tip backwards when she's wearing cloth diapers.

*Lydia got her bottom two teeth....3 months earlier than Evan got teeth! She's now working on popping the top two through.

*She loves the pool! Kicking is her favorite thing to do in the water. When she's not kicking, I can hold her in the snuggli and she'll fall asleep while we're still in the pool.

*She is easily entertained. She sat on my lap for a VBS meeting, playing with one toy for over an hour. Just today she sat in the stroller at the museum for over two hours.

*Lydia has finally decided that food is not so bad after all. After 2 months of force-feeding her, I think there are a few things she's decided she likes: bananas, oatmeal, and green beans. I continue to try new things with her and she continues to close her mouth and look away...or just slap the spoon out of my hand.

*She is learning to take milk from her sippy cup and is doing much better than she was a month ago. She never took a bottle so we went straight to the sippy cup.

*Peek-a-boo is one of her favorite games, especially if its with Evan

*She started clapping.

*If you take something away from her, she now gets mad and you have to re-direct her. She's also started taking toys away from Evan which he doesn't appreciate.

*Evan really loves her and wants to give her hugs and kisses quite often. He also likes to help feed her and is fascinated by her poop. He usually asks what color it is.

(I'll try to add some pictures later;)
