1 year check-up!

Height: 2'6" (95th percentile)
Weight: 25lb. 5.8oz. (95th percentile)
Head: 48cm (95th percentile)

Lily wears 18 month pants, and 18 to 18-24 tops depending on the brand and in size 4 diapers. Sleeps from 7:30pm-7am. She's still taking two naps a day about an 1-1.5 hours long. On track developmentally, says a bunch of words and can put 2-3 words together (I'll post a list of her words later). We've started on self feeding with spoons. Lily enjoys feeding herself, but gets frustrated easily. She prefers to just pick it up off the tray and feed herself that way. She been off the bottle for a couple of weeks and just gets a sippy cup, some with straws. We now have 8 teeth. As far as toys, she still loves her books, big bird, wagon and is starting to like her big block.
She's still cruising around furniture and pushing her wagon, but has no real desire to walk. She now had mini meltdowns when we try to hold her hands and walk with her. She loves to climb the stairs.

We had 3 shots at this appointment. Lily did great with 1, but the other 2 were pretty hard on her. I felt bad for Michael because he was holding her. We were able to calm her down after a minute. The doctor said she's doing great and her verbal communication is wonderful.

What party dress?

I realized much later in the evening that we never got a picture of Lily in her party dress. My sister did capture this sequence of Lily biting the donkey and was still in her dress. (the donkey ended up going home with Phil, Heather and Lydia). :)

Happy 1st Birthday Lily!

I'm 1 today!

Getting ready for cake!


Are you sure about this?

Here we go!

YUM! Let's do that some more!
Where did the cake go? Robb found dressing with Lily's name on it.
Cake - before Lily got to it.

Cookie Favors
We had Lily's 1st birthday party, I can't believe she's 1 already! She had a Sesame street theme, since Big Bird is her favorite right now. We had immediate family over for dinner and cake. I forgot to serve the ice cream...sorry! Thank you everyone for attending her party and to Robb for your wonderful job in the kitchen (as always). Lily loved her cake and didn't mind that it was Elmo and not Big Bird. Michael and I couldn't find a place to make a Big Bird cake due to copyrights. I didn't take pictures of all the finished details. We had a photo banner of the year of Lily. It was all her monthly pictures with her teddy bear. Chocolate chip cookies for favors (like Cookie Monster), coloring books made for the kids that spelt out their names with Sesame Street characters, and gift bags with a bath time theme (rubber ducky, bubbles, etc. like Ernie). We had a wonderful time. Lily even took her new baby to bed with her.

Getting ready for Lily's 1st party!

I've attempted to be a little crafty since I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. We decided to do a Sesame Street theme since Lily loves Big Bird right now.

Lily loves her big bird. She shares her toys, gives him hugs and even tickles his feet.

Love those thighs!




She'll hate me for these photos later, but I didn't want to miss getting a picture of these thighs! She's already losing her cheeks, it'll be sad when the thighs go as well.

Crawling

Lily crawls everywhere. We try to hold her hands to get her to walk, but she doesn't like it. She now has a thing that when she crawls, she likes to have something in her hand. Today, she crawled over to Winnie's dish and decided she was going to put her baby in there. At least the dish was empty and it wasn't the water dish. :) She also likes to try and feed Winnie, 1 piece at a time.

11 Months!

Stats:
We still haven't weighed Lily since her last check up. I'd guess she's around 26lbs. We're close to moving up to size 4 diapers. The 6-12mo clothes are put away, and some of the 12mo clothes are a little snug already. Most of her clothes are 12-18 months and 18 months.

Eating/Sleeping:
No big change here this month. She eats 3 meals a day, and gets four 6oz. sippies. Her favorite foods are meatballs, bagels, avocado, cheese, pasta with red sauce, pears, apples, actually there isn't much she doesn't like. She's still sleeping from about 7:30pm - 7:30a, with a nap around 10-11 and again at around 2-3.

Development:
She's just crawling & pulling up on everything. She really hasn't tried to walk and when we walk her around and hold her hands she gets upset after a minute. She'll do it when she's ready, like she did with crawling. Lily has discovered the stairs and LOVES them. She would climb them all day if we let her. Lily understands quite a few words, has improved on her signing. She babbles all the time. It's amazing how much she can say. We're starting to wean her from the bottle and it's going very well. She has started to go thru a biting phase, I'm hoping this is short lived. She does this when she gets frustrated. She has 6 teeth, 2 on the bottom and 4 on top.
