Two Bags

Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody!! I hope that you are enjoying the long weekend and are able to spend some time with those whom you love. Daddy and I are having a great weekend and I LOVE that he gets an extra day off. Awesome!

You probably read the title to this blog post and ask yourself "Two Bags? What in the world does that mean?" Well, people, I had a doctor's visit on Wednesday this week and I weighed a whopping 9 pounds 10 ounces!! Daddy calls me his little bruiser and said that by the time we got around to posting the latest update (Sunday), I probably weigh 10+lbs. Isn't that crazy?! That's the same as two five pound bags of sugar; two bags. I have quadrupled in size since I was born!! I am in the 35th percentile for weight and head curcumference but Daddy says I have to blame Mommy's side of the family for my "vertical challenges". It seems that I am only in the 5th percentile for length. But that's OK because I am short and mighty, just like my momma. Dr. Fix was super excited that I am doing so well and one of the benefits to being a rockstar, I now get to up the amount of food that I eat from 4 ounces to 5. Boy, I tell ya, after I am done with 5 ounces I am ready for a long nap.

Daddy was really excited when Dr. Fix said I was doing this great. But neither of us were excited about the last part of our appointment, shots. Ouch, they smart! This poor lady, it's her job to come in and stab us innocent kids with these needles. How would you like to be the most disliked lady at the doc's office? She gave me two shots, one in each leg, and I let out a scream that Daddy is fairly convinced my Mimi Cameron could hear in Arkansas (miss you Mimi ). Daddy picked me up right after the lady gave me the shots and was able to calm me down a bit. I was a little irritable for the rest of the day and just decided to nap it away. Daddy was thankful that I am such a tough chick and didn't cry that much after my shots

There has been a lot of things going on as far as my development is concerned. The coolest of my new skills is the fact that I have found my hands. These things are incredible! Like when I don't have a Wubbanub nearby, I can just suck on my thumb. Well, I actually suck on my fist (see video below) but I am told that there is a thumb there somewhere and that once I find it I may not need my wubbanub. I don't think I will be giving up my awesome wubbanubs anytime soon but I do look forward to finding out all the things I can do with these new hands of mine. Daddy says that his favorite thing to do with his hands is to hold mine. I am betting that will be my favorite thing to do with mine too.

Other than that there is not too much to report. Daddy and I are just enjoying the long weekend with family and friends. Daddy took me to a cookout yesterday where I got to meet some of his coworkers and their families. Daddy works with some really cool people and they were all so impressed with how big I am getting. It was fun to be the center of attention and I was sure to entertain them by making funny facial expressions. It was awesome.
Tonight, Daddy and I are just gonna kick it here at home. We like layin low sometimes.
Well, have a great Memorial Day. We hope yours is great!!
Love All of You, Lily


  1. What a sweet yawn! Congrats on hitting the double digits!

  2. Lily , I did hear you cring when you got your shots and I am so proud of your great lung power! Now I will hear your sweet gurgle in my ears all day. Thanks, Daddy for sharing two have a blessed day together and remember Mimi loves you both!!

  3. Loved the video! You are too cute Lily!

  4. Lily, you are soooo cute! I think you'll find that thumb any day now:)

  5. I love it, Lily! You and your Daddy seem to be having so much fun together :) You are growing so quickly - I'm sure I'll be amazed at how big you've become tomorrow when I see you. I can't wait to see you again. You are wonderful!

  6. OH my Lily! I have not checked your blog for a couple of weeks and look what you are getting up to!! I am certain by now you are beyond 10 lbs! Hey nothing wrong with being short... I like to refer to it as petite!!

    You are doing so amazingly well and I am so proud of you and of course your daddy! It looks like Tucker is doing so well helping to watch over you too..

    Tell your daddy that next time he runs errands with you, to stop in Ft. Thomas to see your cousins (that would be Chuck and me!) We can't wait to meet you not-so-little one..

    Love and {{{{HUGS}}}}
