Livi is flourishing. She is coming out with more and more words and sentences everyday. It is so exciting to listen to her! I was feeding her the other day and she says to me “by myself mommy.” I laughed and let her do it by herself… even though she made a huge mess. She has begun singing too! The Clean Up song. Not quite in key but real singing!
She had her 18 month vaccinations and she did great of course. She is officially 27lbs, and 85.5cm tall. I think that puts her in the 97th percentile for height and around the 83rd percentile for weight. Not entirely sure it that percentile thing is correct though. She is healthy and growing steadily, so I’m happy 🙂
I realized today that we are in trouble and may have a little preformer on our hands. I took her to an interactive story time at the library today. I think the performers were called the Trollson’s. Livi sat herself down up front with all the big kids. I’m sure she was among the younger viewers, if not the youngest. They gave a warning at the beginning of the show that it might scare some younger kids, since it was geared towards five year olds more. I figured I’d see how she did and we’d leave if we had too.
So, since it was an interactive story time, I ended up getting picked to be one of the actors. I was a little nervous and out of my comfort zone at first, especially when they made me sing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” in front of the 70 people there, but I got in to it by the end. The kids thought I was a good actor 🙂 Livi was very fascinated that I was up front, on the stage. Auntie Sessa came with us so she was with her, but Livi did end up joining me on stage. What a little performer! She loved it! Too much! She was getting in to the actions and wasn’t at all scared of the troll, who had at least four of the kids crying. She even wanted him to pick her up! It was SO FREAKING ADORABLE! I am proud that different looks don’t phase her. She is accepting of whatever malformations people may have… even big scary trolls… But, I’m also a little nervous because she will go and trust anyone!
I should update my lifestyle change too… I haven’t done an official weigh in and measurement because I had to miss my last two group meetings where we do that, due to me having a terrible cold one week and Jon having to work late the next. Unofficially though I’ve lost another 4 pounds! That puts me at 14lbs gone in 9weeks! It seems like it is going slowly but I am right on target 🙂
