This month’s letter is a little late because we have been SO BUSY lately. In between packing and traveling and life in general, things have been insane.
There’s a lot going on for you lately, little girl. In the past month you have been pulled from daycare, an emotional decision for me, and you are now being taken care of by your Gran and your Auntie. I think this situation is for the best though, because you get to spend a lot of time with people who love you a ton before we move. You were thriving in daycare here though, so I hope you will be okay when we put you back in Indianapolis.
By far the biggest accomplishment of yours this past month is CRAWLING! You are officially mobile. Well, kind of. You haven’t quite figured it out totally yet. You do this totally adorable lunge/army crawl thing, but it gets you where you want to go, eventually. You are also pulling up on things and people. All of this means you are into everything and all over everyone, which is causing me to pull my hair out. You are also self feeding and will eat just about anything I put in front of you, which is pretty awesome. We’re starting to wean the bottle some, and you have adjusted magnificently to it, thank god.
You are also growing like a weed. Here’s some fast stats for you:
Weight: 17 lbs (~20th percentile, we’re bulking up a little!)
Height: 28 in (~53rd percentile)
Teeth: One (but number two is about to cut through)
Hair: Blonde and crazy
You are the cutest little cuddle bug ever. It’s the truth; it has been independently verified. You are also inquisitive and social. You have yet to meet a stranger. You will “talk” to anyone and everyone, and you are very generous with your huge smiles. Even the grumpiest people light up when they see you because you are so happy to see them. I hope you never lose this quality.
Baby A, you make me laugh and smile every single day. To quote the cheesy song, “you light up my life” in ways you will never be able to imagine. I love you more and more every single day.
