Our Sweet Little Lydia

I know it has been awhile since I posted but I wanted to dedicate a post to Lydia for my own rememberance so this might be really boring for most of you. Sorry in advance.

Anyway, Lydia is almost 10 months old and is still our little sweetheart but her personality is definitely becoming more apparent. She went to the doctor last week and she is no longer in the 98th percentile for weight! Here are her stats:

Weight: 21.3 lbs (85th %)
Height: 28.5 in (75th %)

More facts about Lydia:

-She is a little tease and will hold toys out for her sister and when Abigale tries to take it she will put it behind her back and smile.
-She just started to crawl (finally!) and can pull herself onto her knees and every once in awhile all the way to her feet
-When she is tired she gets delirious and will laugh so hard at anything and everything.
-Obviously she loves food. She is not picky and will eat anything you put in front of her and lots of it. I can never tell when she is full because she just keeps eating so I have to just cut her off.
- She is a great sleeper. She takes two naps a day like clockwork and usually both are for 2 hours or longer. She sleeps 10-12 hours straight almost every night but every once in awhile wakes up in the night. It is usually when her belly is hurting and as soon as i feed her she goes right back to sleep.
- When she wants to be put in her crib to sleep she will push away from me and arch her back.
- She only has her two bottom teeth.
- For some reason when she first sees someone she knows (grandparents, especially) she gets really nervous and starts to cry but after about 5 minutes she is fine. Just needs a little warming up.
- Whenever music comes on she starts swinging her hands and bouncing up and down.
- She always has a runny nose and her hair is almost always in her face because she likes to pull her hair things out.
- If she wants attention she will make grunting noises until you look at her and then she will just smile at you.
These are just a few things that came to mind about our Lydia that I dont want to forget. She is such a doll and we love having her in our family.
