Lillian has been growing in leaps and bounds...from sitting to crawling to table foods to just plain silliness!
She is 9.5 months already and speed crawls...pulls up on just about anything from couches, tables, window sills, cabinet doors, and even walls. Most of our cabinets have baby/adult proofing latches. She's a little Houdini at times and can even get those off! I have found her in just about everything and even licking the floor. I have no idea what that is about. There are times I either stand there and chuckle or get totally grossed out! But she is darn cute doing it.
At her 9m well baby check up she was 28.5" tall and weighed 20.3 lbs!
Lily's Activities as of 9 months
- She plays tug of war w/the dog's chew bones....yes, she has even licked and chewed them herself
- Crawls at the speed of light. When she needs to pick up speed she pushes off with her right foot. So it's right foot...left knee...right foot...left knee. It's a scream to watch!
- Pulls up on everything
- Can say a few words/signs: Mama, Dada, bye bye (waves), ceiling fan (signs too), na-na (not sure but she uses it a lot)
