Lorelei Growth Stats Revised! Lorelei had another doctor appointment today and either she has shrunk in length almost two inches or there was some serious mis-measuring going on at her checkup a week ago! The last measurement was 28" for her length, but the doc measured twice today (to be sure) and she is most definitely only 26.25" long! are her revised stats (along with her new weight from today's appointment).

9.5 months old:
length: 26.25", percentile: 9th
weight: 16.5 lbs, percentile: 5th

So, now she is no longer our string-bean, but our little itty bitty "beanut"!

June fun for Lorelei

Well, Lorelei is now 9 and a half months old and is as busy as ever. It seems as if every day she shows us a new "trick" that almost always involves us keeping an even CLOSER eye on our little mover and shaker! She LOVES to help us hang laundry (it is too hot here to run our dryer during the day).

Actually she "helps" us to unload the basket of wet clothes onto the grass as we are trying to get the clothing on the line. But she thinks it is a kick! Pretty much every activity that she chooses involves standing and she is starting to really enjoy pushing her walker. Lorelei can now point out my nose when asked "where is mommy's nose?" but I believe that she thinks that only Mommy has a nose- no generalization yet. She loves pointing to everything now! She's been making a silly fish face lately and seems to always be experimenting with new ways to contort her face and make us laugh. Her smile has changed quite a bit now that her two top teeth are coming in! She is looking less and less like a baby! Lola has also started to imitate the "woof" sounds a dog makes and as always, LOVES Bailey and Baxter. She spent a nice Father's day with her Daddy (since I was in bed with the flu!) and made Matt really work for the title of "Dad"! What a fun time this is!

So, Lorelei had her 9 month well-baby checkup today and here are her stats:

Weight: 16lbs 4oz
Height: 28 inches
Head circ: 44.5 cm

Height for age percentile: 61%
Weight for height percentile: 5%
Weight for age percentile: 5%
Head for age percentile: 55% sum it up, our little "Lola-Bean" is our little "String-Bean"! Healthy, but lean! Probably due to the fact that she is so darn busy all of the time that she burns off all of the calories that she takes in!

Lorelei is 9 months old!

How is it that our little girl is 9 months old already? This past month has been a BUSY one...she has sprouted three more teeth (with another about to pop through), she has learned how to crawl (and FAST!), she has gone for her first swim in a pool and liked it, and she has had a lot of fun outdoors too! The dogs are still her favorite form of entertainment and she loves them to pieces and they can't seem to stop licking her so I assume the feelings are mutual (or she just has left over carrots stuck to her face). She has also started baby foods with meat and LOVES cheerios, pieces of banana and rice cakes. She is a busy, busy little girl and loves her new found independence with crawling but is not quite sure that she wants Mommy and Daddy to get too far away. What a fun time this is!

P.S. Babyproofing an 80 year old home is no piece of cake.
