Baby Business – 9 Months Bonus Edition

Ok… I’ve been slacking off.  Sam noticed that I never published the latest Baby Business after Laney’s 9-month check up.  I know people have been wagering on Laney’s head circumference, so I apologize if this kept you from collecting on the over/under.Laney's Penguin Towel

Laney went to the doctor on January 5th.   She was 21 lbs. 2 oz. which puts her in the 75-90th percentile.  She was 29 1/2 inches tall (95th percentile) and her head was 18 1/2 inches around which stll places her in the 97th percentile!  Yeah!!!  Eat that small-headed babies!!!!

She’s been growing up right in front of our eyes.  Since her doctor’s visit, she’s learned to crawl, mastered crawling, learned to pull up, learned to fall down, mastered falling down, started cruising, started grabbing everything, mastered shoving everything in her mouth and much more.  We are in emergency mode here trying to get the house baby proofed.  She’s already pulled up onto the first stair, so we have run out of time.

It’s hard to believe that she’s 10 1/2 months old already and her birthday is right around the corner.  For those who are interested, we are having a get together at the house the weekend after her birthday to celebrate (Saturday, March 21).  Nana, Grumpa and Grandpa will be there as well as some special guests.  (I’m talking to Don Mattingly tomorrow.)   If you are interested in coming, you are more than welcome.  But bring clothes that are easily cleaned because Laney will have her very own cake to tear into.  Think Gallager or Shamu’s Spash Zone and you’ll get the picture.

One last point of business… I know I still haven’t posted photos from our XMas trip to South Florida.  I’ll get those up ASAP.  Until then, enjoy this picture of Laney at Grampa Al’s house.  Sam put pigtails in her hair and thinks she looks like a Laney Who from a Dr. Suess book…

Laney Goes Bananas

Laney has been enjoying all kinds of new foods now that she’s old enough.  She’s been eating pasta, fruits and veggies while exploring new and interesting ways of smearing them all over the place.

Although she’s enjoyed pieces of cut up bananas before, this morning she decided to cut out the middle monkey and grabbed Mom’s lunchtime fruit.  To our surprise she started peeling it.  After a little help she took a huge bite out of it and didn’t stop until half of it was gone!
