Lilypie Third Birthday tickers Lilypie Maternity tickers

I am way behind on Lyla's 9 month update! At her 9 month check up, she weighed 16.9 lbs and is still in the 10th percentile for her weight but has boosted into the 25th percentile for her height. She is still in size 2 diapers and 6-9 month clothes. She has 4 bottles a day and 3 meals a day!

Lyla has been up to so much this month including being a flower girl in her Aunt Goo's wedding, enjoying her first Easter, and of course starting to crawl! Yes, she is EVERYWHERE! She can get up on all fours, but figures she can get around faster by army crawling. 

This month, Lyla has gotten in her first 2 teeth (both at the bottom) which means she is chomping on anything and everything! 

Since she finally has teeth, we have started feeding her more from the table. I am still making her food and she still loves her fruits and veggies. We have started giving her eggs (which she LOVES!), mac and cheese, beans, and rice. She has gotten much better about feeding herself!

Another new change this month has been SHOES! Lyla has never kept socks and shoes on very well, but we keep trying non the less. We have started putting shoes on her more now that she is getting around.

Lyla has mastered clapping, saying mama, and tries to say Diggs. However, her favorite word is DADA. Everything and everyone is Dada. Strangers are Dada, I am Dada, her toys are Dada... And she doesn't just say it, she SCREAMS it. (Jeff thinks it's hysterical unless we are out in public) She is definitely learning her voice. 

She is such a joy to us and has the sweetest personality. She is definitely keeping us on our toes, but we are loving every minute of it. 

Happy 9 months (a little late) sweet baby Lyla. We love you!!!
