Kyra's "Brando Face"
Kyra had her 9 month check up yesterday and, amazingly, this little girl just keeps growing and learning (exactly as she's supposed to!).
Weight: 20 lbs., 12 oz.
Height: 29 inches
Head Circumference: 44 cm.
Grandpa Phil managed to snap a couple photos of Kyra's Marlon Brando face recently. He's lucky he got them when he did, because she hasn't been making the face nearly as often as she was a week or two ago. These days, she's too busy pulling herself up to a stand to bother herself with making silly faces. It is amazing to watch her pull herself up - you can really see her thinking and figuring out her next move! She's so strong and squirmy and mobile now. She's so mobile, in fact, that her Mommy is now struggling with some really annoying lower back pain. It's been rather persistent, so that's probably not a good sign. But it's worth it!
Kyra's been practicing her sippy cup skills and, yesterday, she fed herself how own snack of banana puffs during a stroller walk. That was pretty cute! Not to jinx it, but she's been sleeping really well this week! Her Mommy and Daddy must be doing a pretty good job of exhausting her during the day.
We're looking forward to Kyra's first Thanksgiving next week. December will be here before you know it, and I'm really looking forward to taking Kyra on Mrs. Claus' Christmas trolley through Beverly Hills, which drops you off at Santa! We did it a few years ago with our nieces, and it was really fun. Hopefully Kyra won't be scared of Santa but, either way, it'll make for some adorable photos!
