We have a crawler in the house!

9 months! (5.29.11)

Another month past - this has been a big milestone kind of month :)  Hadleigh is getting more and more fun as she starts to move and show even more of her personality.  I love her soo much!!

Sleeping is the same - we only really have problems when she's teething (like she is right now - those top 2 teeth should be in ANY day now!).  And when I say problems, I don't really mean it because all she is, is a little fussy so it takes me longer than the usual 5 minutes to get her to sleep when I rock her.  She's pulling up so much on things and crawling (yes I said crawling...finally!) that Daniel and I dropped her crib the other night.  We definitely dropped it at the right time, cause she pulls up any chance she gets.




As I mentioned above, Hadleigh still only has the 2 bottom teeth, but those top 2 should be in any day.  They are bothering her so much - poor thing.  She has slept a lot today because of them hurting her and she is chomping on everything.  I can't wait to see her with 4 little teeth!

Hadleigh is on the move!  She was already pulling herself up onto everything, but now she just seems so much more independent and active.  She can crawl now - and now that she can crawl she's rolling around a lot more.  She knows that she has to be on her stomach to get to the crawling position pretty much.  So much for PT!!  We saw Dr. Christian the other day (5.26) and she's not sure if Hadleigh will be walking by a year, but she said her language is advanced :)  Hadleigh will saw Mama, Dada, and I believe sometimes Nana.Hadleigh really likes playing with this activity table she has.  When she pulls herself up onto the table, her hand always hits the red square, or the red piano key and the woman on the toy will say "red".  One day last week we heard her try to say "red" - she didn't quite get the "d" sound out, but it was so cute!!

While we were at the doctor, we were told to start feeding her some table food when we can.  I'm excited to get her to try different foods we eat :)  She got a perfect report from the doctor and this time she only got one shot, but they pricked her finger :(
Here are her stats:
Weight: 20 pounds 8 ounces (80%tile)
Height: 29 inches (85%tile)
Head: 18cm (90%tile)


Hadleigh's Daily Routine

Strolling and Walking...





So we finally broke down and bought a walker.  I was the one who was more hesitant, but Daniel was right on this one. She really enjoys it, but she still needs to learn how to back up ;)

Lena's Baby Shower

Saturday was Lena's baby shower at The Henry Clay Inn.  Lena graduated from Patrick Henry, but she was a little older so I didn't know her really until I started going to her to cut my hair.  She's awesome and I'm so excited to meet her babyboy in June - Walker James :)

Maymont (5.21.11)

It was such a nice day on Saturday, we decided to take Hadleigh to Maymont.  Kristy & Lily joined us and we all had so much fun!  We all just walked and talked for a couple of hours.  Lily & Hadleigh enjoyed looking at the goats, pigs, chickens, peacock, hawks, owl, and bear.  We also walked through the Japanese Gardens.  It was pretty warm and a lot of walking, but worth every second!  I hope to go back in a couple of weeks and walk through the house and the other building (which I just found out has an aquarium in there).Enjoy the pictures!!
