The Lilly report!

Well we're back home and today Lilly went for her 12 month check-up! I must admit that I was a little nervous to find out if Lilly was caught up developmentally and all and I am very happy to report that she is! She is 29 1/2 inches tall and weighs in at 20 lbs 14 oz. She's average for weight and a little above normal for height. I am also very happy that she finally gets to go off the formula and straight to milk which will certainly make it nice that I don't have to go to BJ's every month to get that!! And to top things off.....she's ready to face forward in her car seat!!! I have to figure out if the one we have now is able to do that since it was rated to go up to 30lbs and if not we planned on getting her a new seat next month. I'm kinda torn at this point at which one to get (thinking about a Britax) so if any of you mommy's out there have a suggestion let me know! I'm just so relieved to know that she is doing well......and to know that I'm doing a half way decent job at this mom gig!

Other than that my dad taught me some of the basics with the camera and I'm starting to understand it more. We're going to try and venture out this week and do some more exploring in the VT countryside and take some pics with the stuff I learned. I guess we'll see what the result is and if I even have a chance at taking pics professionally. Anyways, hope that everyone has a wonderful week!

YEAH LILLIAN!! That is awesome, I know those checkups are a bit intimidating when you have a 'early' baby :) SO WOO HOO FOR LILLIAN!

Congrats on moving up to a big girl seat! My son has this one: http://www.gracobaby.com/catalog/product.aspx?modelNumber=8487WBR and it's GREAT! You'll never have to buy another seat. It goes up to like 100lbs and once they are like over 40lb you take out the 5point harness and it has spots to put the shoulder strap through. So they can use it until they are like 6 or 7! It's a great buy!
