We are so excited to be going "home" for Christmas. Lanie will get to spend her first Christmas with my family, after spending her first Thanksgiving with Aunt Suzie, Uncle Rusty, and the kids.
We put Lanie on formula this month and now she is growing like a weed! At her last Dr. appointment, she had only gained 7 ounces in over 2 months. We go in tomorrow and I think she's gained twice that just in the last month!
She is also now chattering away. She says mama, but she doesn't quite know its me. It seems to be what she cries when she wants something, whether it be me, food, or just some attention...
She isn't crawling yet, but that doesn't seem to stop her from getting to where she wants to be. Last night we hit another big moment. She was able to pick up her cornbread and get it successfully to her mouth several times in a row. Normally this was a "hit and miss" sort of event, but she finally has it down.
I know this is a brief update, but I wanted to let everyone know how Lanie is doing, and wish all of you a very happy holiday season.
