The pediatrician said Lila is staying right on track at 25th percentile weight and 50th percentile height. Long and skinny. Just (NOT) like her mama. She also suggested that we should try a new type of sippy cup for Lila. She loves drinking water but has a hard time holding her cup upside down. So off we went to Target looking for a sippy cup with a straw. Did you know there is a whole aisle at Target dedicated to baby cups? Is that really necessary?
I am hoping this straw will be both fun, helpful and developmentally stimulating for my child. I realized at this doctors appointment that I have finally stopped freaking out about everything Lila does. I used to bring lists to the appointments. And ask questions I already knew the answer to just to get some assurance. But this time, I just wanted to brag about my girl. Does that mean I am getting more comfortable and confidant as a mom? Or am I just too busy to type lists for the doctor? Either way, there is something about watching your daughter waive and laugh at her doctor that makes me feel proud as a mom. I guess I might be doing something right.
Children keep us in check. Their laughter prevents our hearts from hardening.
Their dreams ensure we never lose our drive to make ours a better world.
They are the greatest disciplinarians known to mankind.
