I love her hair flying in the breeze, I giggled the whole time. Mouth open, white fingertips from hanging on, a little squeal as she swung. Pure joy.
I have been studying up on advertising stuff for my students at school and a picture looking up at the subject is supposed to represent power and prestige. Does she look powerful?

This is the real thing... no imitations here, no army crawling, no slithering, the REAL, DEAL, CRAWLING! She just figured it out, like overnight! Not only is my big girl crawling, she has a tooth! When we were at the doctor last week, he felt around for a tooth and said, nope not yet... Well, the other day I spotted it! Just a single tooth on the bottom on the left side. No crying and misery from the inevitable tooth, nope, just popped up and she is cool with it. In fact, she bit me a little, I assume it is from trying to pry her mouth open so I can show Vin and take a look at it again, but no big deal, just a little nibble.
This kid is everywhere! We are going to get some locks and those fun socket protectors this afternoon, she is mobile, and we have stairs! Now I am thinking we need to get a gate or two! I sense some shopping today :)

Vin taught her this adorable thing, she clicks her tongue. Vin was very proud of himself for teaching her this, I cannot get Lee to stop doing it now. Its cute, but I am afraid she is going to think this is a new kind of greeting;) No hello, no waving, just clicks. hmmmm.... By the way, at the end, I am pretty sure that is a distinct "dada"

We had to get some ice cream afterwards, Vin and I had gelatto, but aunt jen had to have Kilwin's! The aroma of that store is out of sight! Freah baked waffle cones, chocolate dipped strawberries... um, yum!
Drooling over the monkey, she messed up her shirt a little...
The smiles were un-stopable!
There were more Ferarri's than I had ever seen! I am not totally sure yet, but I am thinking my little Ferrari (Leah) might cost more than these.

27 inches long, she is 3 inches longer than she was last time we were there ;)
And for her weight, drum roll..... that says, 19 pounds, 7 oz.! Yes, you read it, it is right there is black and white ;) She is offically a 1 year old! I giggle because Dr. Needle said, "Just to put her weight into perspective, most 1 year olds weigh 20 pounds..." He was fine with her weight though, he said she is getting into her active stage and expects that she will lean out as she really starts moving (crawling). I love the percentiles, that is my favorite, she is 90th percentile for weight and 75th for height.
She flipped over so fast on that scale, the nurse said, "I have been doing this for 20 years and never seen a baby flip that fast, she is a lively one." After she gave Leah her shots she also added, "ooohh, that one has a temper!"
I assume she said this because Leah slapped her after the second shot :)
And Leah's total favorite is her bath, I took a video of it, I love her in the bath. She stays in there for a good 30 minutes and cries when I take her out. She screams in there, not because she is mad, but she loves the echo, Teddy and Emma stay out, it is too loud for them in there!

He would change insturments Lee would look at him with these interested eyes... It was adorable!
