Our budding pianist

Lillian seems to be very rhythmic and musical. She likes to bang things like a drum,, she dances (sways) when music comes on and she really enjoys playing the piano. I can tell we are going to need to put the cover down when we aren't playing since she can reach them now.

Updated Walking

Lillian got her first pair of shoes about a week ago.  I took her to stride rite, got her sized and got 2 pairs of shoes (they were having a buy one get one half off sale). I got one pair of "early walkers" that have a flexible sole and one pair of "off and running" that are more for one she really gets going; they have a bit firmer sole.  I can now get her to walk holding onto just my finger, she is a bit wobbly and of course she does much better if Greg and I each hold a hand.  I'd say we have made a big improvement in just a week!

Going for a walk

Lillian's walking has improved greatly the last week or so. This is her second time outside. I think I may get her some of those soft sole shoes for outside, she seemed ok on the pavement but I don't want her stubbing her toe or something since when we are inside I know she sometimes stands on her toes. We have been working on holding onto on object, turning and taking a few steps to me too. I have gotten her to do it holding one hand but she isn't too confident yet.

Beginning to Walk Part 2

Shortly after I posted the previous video I was in the kitchen, peaked out to check on Lillian and she was pushing it herself! She's been going on her own ever since. I can not believe she is already learning to walk and learning quick I might add! She only used the walker with my help twice before she took off on her own. I'm so proud of her!

Beginning to Walk!

Yesterday Lillian walked across the entire living room using her walker. I helped by pushing it out a little and by making sure it didn't get away from her, can't believe she will be walking soon! I managed to capture a little video of her using it today. Sorry for the shakiness, enjoy!

We are cruising!

Today Lillian cruised the couch a little and the hope chest. It's hard to capture it since she needs a lot of encouragement and coaxing to do it but I managed to capture part of it.


We really enjoy feeding ourselves now :)  Here she is enjoying some bell pepper.  It amazes me how well she eats considering she still doesn't have any teeth! She does chew though...

10 month photos

Lillian is wearing a dress her Auntie Jan made, although it had to be altered a little to fit better.  She is just so petite and tiny. I took her to the doctors as a follow up to being sick in early August.  She only gained 6 oz over 2 months so now we are going to go back in a couple weeks and recheck her weight.  If it has not improved we will do blood work to rule out any metabolic disorders for her slow weight gain.  Until now she has been following the curve but never on it.  At the last appointment she kind of plateaued.   So, that also means she can still fit in her 3 mo onesies and can also fit into 6-9 mo clothes. She sure is a petite little thing.
