We are all so happy to have Lilly as part of our family. She is very curious and likes to explore her surroundings. She is super smart and figures out things like how to go up and down stairs and the quickest way to escape outside. She started crawling on her hands and knees at 6 months old, and seems content with that still. She is starting to stand up on her own and take a few steps, but is not walking yet. She is going to be a big sister. She says a few words, some of her favorites are mom and ya. Mostly her very favorite thing to do right now is to go around the house and empty everything, drawers, cupboards, baskets, etc. Luckily our trash is in a pull-out drawer and is safe for now! Lilly loves to eat and eat and eat, and she really works her 4 little teeth. Lilly is almost always happy and usually happy to crawl around and do her own thing. She has been my worst sleeper unfortunately and although she is now sleeping through the night she is usually up by 6:00 a.m. which I do not appreciate! Lilly loves her sisters and from a very young age learned to tolerate (mostly by Ally) being carried around, squeezed, kissed, and played with.
At Lilly's one year appointment, the Doctor was happy to see that she is "back up to the 4th percentile for height and weight!" and was surprised by how easy going she was. She weighed in at 17 lbs. 9 oz. was 27" tall and had a head circumference of 18 1/2" (which by the way was 98th percentile!)
