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.
11 Months (+ 6 days) - Unofficial Stats: 18.2 lbs Weight, somewhere between 27.5-28 inches tall. Very happy with the weight since she got down to 16 lbs 15 ounces when she was so sick this month!
11 Months!! It's hard to believe that in just a few weeks time you will be ONE years old! Where has the time gone?? This past month has definitely been one of the toughest so far, and we have certainly earned our insurance payments this month. Between a $1,200 visit to the emergency room to get your head glued on Thanksgiving night, 3 visits to your pediatrician for a severe cold/cough that ultimately turned into a bad ear infection, plus a flu shot visit - we've spent some time in doctor's offices. Thankfully you're back to sweet, funny, silly Lilli - just in time for FOUR, count 'em FOUR, teeth to be exploding in your mouth right now. You poor thing, I'm pretty sure we may never all sleep through the night again! In other news, you are a full fledged, big girl walking crazy child right now. I don't even remember the last time I saw you crawl - and you are EVERYWHERE - in the fridge, under furniture, hands in toilets, dog bowls, opening cabinets, drawers, and basically rearranging our house as you transport random objects everywhere. You are still quite the social butterfly and make yourself quite at home everywhere we take you, and are often the "life" of any dinner out or dinner party with friends. Your core vocabulary remains at Momma, Dadda, Dog, and HoHoHo, but you can also say cookie, duck, moo, thank you, Yeah, and mimic a ton of other noises and words at will. This month we celebrated your first Thanksgiving, visited a host of relatives, took your first trip to the ER, got your first Christmas tree, went to holiday parties and dinner parties, met Santa twice, helped make Christmas cookies and mostly just tried to all get well during this awful cold and flu season. You also got promoted to the "big kids" Sunday school class at church, where you fit right in with the older ones and make yourself at home at the buffet of Cheerios - as we can tell by the quantity still in your hair when we pick you up. You're eating more and more table foods - like bananas, green beans, strawberries, apples and oranges and love anything crunchy. Your favorite toys are still your blocks, balls, cars and books - you LOVE your books and spend tons of time throwing them out of your basket and just pouring over them. Any toy with animal noises or pictures is also a huge hit. I can't wait to see what this last month of your first year has in store for us!
