Your Birthday - January 24, 2009
7 lbs, 6.5 ounces 19 inches
One Month - February (first smiles!)
9 lbs, 1 ounce (45th %) 21.5 inches (55%), head: 70%
Two Months - March
10 lbs, 12 ounces (50%) 22 5/8 inches (55%), head: 65%
Three Months - April
(No official weight/measure)
Four Months - May
13 lbs 1 ounce (35%), 23 7/8 inches long (30%), head: 85%
Five Months - June!! And starting to sit on your own with a little help from Boppy!
Unofficial - Measurement of 25 inches and weight measurements - 14.2 pounds
6 Months - July Official Stats (which is actually 6months, 1 wk) - 25 3/4 inches long (50th percentile!), Weight: 15 lbs, 8 ounces (40th percentile), Head: 75th percentile
7 Months - Unofficial Statistics: 16.2 lbs, 25 3/4 inches long (probably not right, because measuring her is "like trying to catch a butterfly") 8 Months - Unofficial stats: Weight - 16.5 lbs, Length 26.25-26.5 inches, you are a rapidly moving target.
9 Months - Official stats (9 months + 3 days) : Weight- 17 lbs 4 ounces (25th percentile), Height - 28.25 inches (75th percentile), Head: 65th percentile
10 Months - Unofficial Stats: Weight: 18 pounds, Height 27 inches. Obviously the nurse did measure you wrong at your 9 month appt as I don't think you've shrunk 1.25 inches over the last month, and this seems much more accurate.
Happy 10 month birthday! Once again it's been a full month of new and exciting things for you. The biggest news in Lilli land this month has been a biggie - WALKING!!! You started walking at 9 months, 3 weeks - or day 296 as we like to call it. You still don't do it a ton, since crawling is a much faster route to danger, but you're starting to use it more and more often (much to your daycare teachers excitement!) Your favorite toys are still anything that is off limits - the lamp, my necklaces, your baby monitor (what an exciting discovery THAT was!), doors, blinds, tools, paper, cabinets and drawers, the toilet, remotes, cell phones, and really I think you get the point?!!? Your understanding of things has really progressed so much this month - you know the word "bye" means to wave, and clearly understand what Momma and Dadda mean (as well as Pippin). Your words are still Momma, Dadda, Ah Dah (dog), and now Ho!Ho!Ho! - very valuable this time of year. You LOVE your snacks and everywhere we go we leave a trail of Puffs behind us. You get small amounts of table food at all of our meals and are doing well with it. You and Pippin are still the best of buds - following each other around endlessly, and it's pretty hilarious watching you try to race him down the hall. This month you celebrated Halloween & went trick or treating for the first time, completed your first set of swim lessons, went to storytime at the Library for the first time, visited your grandparents, and visited where we went to college. You had lots of playdates and dinner dates with our friends, and were even an assistant on one of your Dad's photoshoots and helped get some other kiddos to smile! I can't wait to see what the next month holds for you - lots of holiday activities, including your very first Christmas program!
