Another Check-Up...Our Girl is growing!

Lily and I have both been sick for the past week, so I haven't been up to blogging much lately. We both got colds at the same time so it hasn't been much fun around here! Thankfully I have a pretty amazing husband who also happens to be a pretty good dad. He took very good care of us this weekend by taking full charge of Lily and letting me get some much needed rest. We are both feeling much better now!

Last Tuesday, 9/25, Lily had her Dr. appointment. She did much better with the nurse. She was able to weigh and measure her without Lily screaming her head off. She now weighs 18 lbs 4 ozs. She's put on about 2 1/2 ponds since her last visit 2 months ago. She is also 29 1/4 inches now so she is getting taller too! How is it possible to be so exccited by this and yet sad at the same time? Anyway, she is still not fond of her doctor...at all. She screamed the whole time he examined her, and as he was leaving the office, she kept repeating, "Bye-bye!" over and over again like he wouldn't leave fast enough!

Here are some more recent pictures of our growing girl...


Another great shot by daddy.


Lily being her silly self!

So exhausted she fell asleep drinking her bottle.


Lily with her beloved Kissy Bear.


Lily with another of her favorites...Panda. She has just started wanting to take him everywhere. We are kind of excited she has finally started showing an attachment to one of her toys. She has slept with him in her crib every night since we got home from China and just started this a week or so ago. Here she is trying to feed him one of her precious cheerios. Sooooo cute! This picture was taken after we got home from her Dr. visit. She had 4 shots and 2 of her fingers pricked (note the bandaids) and was not feeling too well.



I'm not sure if you can tell in this picture, but her other top tooth started coming in!

Oh Julianne, all of her pictures are wonderful, but you know I have my very favorites. That one of her being a silly little girl and when she fell asleep while drinking her bottle.
Those are my faves.
Thanks for keeping us posted, this way we don't feel left out. ;)

She is really piling on the cute, day by day. How adorable that she loves her panda enough to share her Cheerios! Glad you are both feeling better. Keep the cuteness coming, please.

Love,
Sharon
