Doesn't she just look like a little lady?
This is her snarl face. It's hard to capture it completely, but cracks us up. Her nose gets all scrunched up...
I love this picture because you can see her big, blue eyes.
Lauren is 9 months old today!!! Wow, we are enjoying her so much and are beginning to see a bit of her personality coming through. She already seems much more girlie and dramatic than James ever was so I'm anxious to see how she is when she gets a bit older. I keep trying to warn Luke of things to come... :) (he has no sisters) Here are some facts about Lauren at 9 months:
-Food-she loves anything and everything, but has quite a sensitive gag reflex, so baby food with texture is a bit difficult. She loves banana bread though and soggy cinnamon toast crunch which James likes to feed to her :)
-Teeth- 6 total...2 on bottom and 4 on top
-Movement- she still crawls all over, but has officially mastered the "monkey walk." She gets up on all fours and "walks" across the room. She can move pretty quickly and it's hilarious to watch. I'm wondering when she'll walk...
-Talking-well, she's not talking yet but she's babbling a lot. Her favorite sound is, "da da da da..." Don't know how that works.... :)
-She LOVES watching TV...I know I shouldn't blog this, but it's the truth. We don't let her watch much, but anytime it's on...she's glued. If you get in her way she'll move so she can see again. Isn't that awful???
-She pays attention to detail and tends to be attracted to the things are less obvious to the eye. Therefore, making my job as a mother even more difficult. I have to constantly be aware of everything-everywhere!!!
-She's persistent-she knows what she wants and she will do whatever it takes to get it and be very vocal when she doesn't get it. She got the batteries out of a toy last night....I mean seriously!!!
-Nicknames- Lou-Lou, Munchkin, Lou-Magou, Loola-Magoola, Wawen (James can't say "L's"), Sweet Lou, Peanut; there are many more, but I'm too tired to think of them :)
-She loves taking walks...in the wagon, stroller, being held...doesn't matter. She loves just looking around at new things
-She is dramatic (yes already). If you take something away from her she squeals and squawks and cries...such a girl...
-She's a sweetheart...she loves people and she's content being played with or talked to
-She's a very happy baby most of the time. Now when she's fussy we're actually surprised. Did you ever think that would happen?
We are so thoroughly enjoying our precious little girl and cannot wait to see what's in store for her. We just pray we can be the best parents possible to raise her to be all she was created to be. Love you Lou-Lou!!!
