Happy birthday to Annika, who is 9 months old today!
According to her day care report sheet, Annika spent part of the morning being in a band with one of the other babies - she was shaking a rattle and herself all around. :) She had loads of food today - oatmeal and sweet potatoes in the morning, then yogurt and peaches at lunch, and oatmeal and applesauce at dinnertime, along with 4 big bottles! (I think she's catching up from last week). When we came home from day care, we saw that UPS had delivered her new car seat and stroller! So, sadly, her days in her bucket car seat are numbered. I'm sad about this - the bucket is cozy, and it's a really easy way to transport her around. Plus, we don't have to bundle her all up to go outside - we just wrap her in the "Cuddle Babe" that's already in the car seat. But oh well, she'll be safer in the bigger seat and we'll just have to come up with a new system for that.
We have her 9-month visit to the doctor tomorrow. I guess she doesn't get any shots this time. Usually Jim and I go out to ice cream after her doctors visits, but I don't think there are many ice cream places open this time of year! Hopefully we'll have better luck at the 12-month visit, and maybe Annika can share a little with us.
