Reese has officially graduated into a front facing car seat. At her 9 month well child check yesterday, the pediatrician told me to turn her around. She is 30" long, and 22 lbs. Her legs don't quite fit comfortably the other way anymore. Her doctor also told me that she is as big as your average one year old! Where did she come from? Dev was so small, it is still surprising to me to have such a big baby. I haven't turned her around yet--to me that is just another mile stone that is part of her growing up, and I am not ready for her to grow up. These last nine months have flown by.
Reese is also trying to crawl. She can successfully crawl maybe 2 steps, then she hits the belly again. She is getting pretty good at army crawling, but isn't very fast at it (thank goodness). She can go from laying to sitting (this is a brand new feat) but she still can't pull herself to standing. She still doesn't like baby food (smart girl) but she will try mama's food from her plate. She is a prissy little princess and doesn't like to eat food from my fingers, she prefers I stick it on a fork first. She loves to scream at the top of her lungs (for fun, when she is happy) and she gets her brother doing the same thing. They love to take turns screaming in each other's faces and laugh at one another. She loves her daddy and her brother. She lights up when they walk in the room, and her attention stays focused on them. She laughs at everything they do. Her laugh is so cute. It is one of my favorite sounds. She has some stranger anxiety, but that is normal for a baby her age.
We love our Reesie, and she is such a blessing to our family. I feel so lucky to have the two wonderful kids I have. I sure learn a lot from them.
