It seems like it was just last September when we anxiously awaiting her arrival! The time is flying by way too fast. . .
Since I am so awful about recording anything in that cute baby book I ordered for her . . . (It was actually my 2nd choice… The one I really wanted – When You Were Very Small A Catholic Baby’s Record – and ordered months before she was born, ended up being backordered and then my order was finally canceled a few months ago since the book had been discontinued. Boohoo! I knew I should have bought multiple copies the last time I ordered it as a gift.), Here is another little update so that I will be able look back and fill in all those blank pages someday:
Today’s Weight : 15 pounds
She is such a tiny little thing! I had to take her in today for a weight check and, as usual, the doctors are a little concerned. However, I am sure that she is just taking after her older siblings, in addition to constantly burning way too many calories since she refuses to sit still for very long.
- She is now standing up by herself without holding on to anything or having any help, though she hasn’t attempted to take any steps without holding on to something. I have a feeling it won’t be long!
- Her very first tooth broke through on August 25th (bottom right), her 2nd tooth (bottom right) broke through on September 4th, and her top tooth (on the left) broke through last Wednesday, September 8th. This past week she has been grinding those teeth together ALL THE TIME and I don’t know what to do to get her to stop! Any suggestions? (Oohh!! Speaking of teeth, Twinkle Toes just lost her 7th tooth this evening – 2nd on the top left. Hummmm… I wonder what the tooth fairy is going bring?!?)
- Yesterday she started saying both Dada (when she is happy!) and Mama (when hungry, of course!). It is SO cute!
