These pictures so capture Livvie's personality, I wanted to post them so I can look back and remember.
A huge grin and my slipper. She loves to play with my slippers. She steals them off my feet and heads off. Stinker!
Clapping for herself. She gets so excited sometimes when Ben and Dee are playing, and starts clapping and shouting. So adorable. She just loves to be part of the action, even if she is just watching.
And look at that belly! Speaking of, I forgot to post about it, but she was actually 75% for height and 46% for weight at her 9 month appointment. At her 6 month check-up, she was only 50% for height and 35% for weight, so she is catching up!
Clapping again. We yell "Yay Livvie" and she just lights up and claps.
LOVES: blueberries, raspberries, and ground beef; playing with any toy that is Ben's; being held and carried around.
HATES: diaper changes and getting dressed. She still fights us like the devil on this. Sometimes, I just want to cry it is so frustrating. You think I'm joking--you come try it!
She still goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes up at around 6:30. She takes a couple hourish naps at daycare, but she naps great at home. She is currently in the habit of wanting a nap about an hour and a half after she wakes up (which is maybe an hour long), and then she always takes a good afternoon nap (2 to 3 hours). And you can still take her up to her crib wide awake and just lay her down, and she goes to sleep without a peep. What an angel!
She's drinking about 5 to 6 bottles a day of about 6 oz. each. She is doing very well with table food but atrociously with the sippy cup. ;-)
Love you, baby girl!
