Lainey went in for her 9 month appointment recently. She was 25 1/2 pounds and 29 3/4 inches long. She's working on her top 4 teeth (she has the bottom two in the middle). I think that one may have popped through last night, but she won't let me look or feel for it.I believe she's going to be a snaggletooth like Hayden (he didn't get the top middle two first. It was the ones on each side of that... Anne named him "Snaggletooth" and I think the same will go for Lainey. She's crawling constantly, pulling up on everything and cruising like crazy. You can't keep this girl still. I'm guessing that her poor sleep habits may have something to do with her constant movement and incoming teeth. I'm hoping things will get better again as the teeth come in. You couldn't tell she's not sleeping well from this picture!
We were also lucky to have our friend, Armando, stay with us while he was presenting at the Annual Exotics Symposium at the Vet. School. I worked there for 15 years and Armando was a student while I was there. It was great to see him! The kids loved him (Hayden stated that he "liked having Armando here.") Luckily, the big ice storm did not cause too many problems for him.
Hayden went out in the icy weather for quite a while and played. He had fun trying to break the ice and write in the small amount of powder on top of the icy layer. I think his favorite part of the adventure was the hot chocolate he got when he came inside.
