Minus the shots and Dr. Barron looking in her ears, Mary Selwyn loves to go to the doctor. She loves to be in places with lots of people and she loves all the kids running around in the waiting room. Yesterday she was toddling around the waiting room with baby in hand and walked right up to a little girl, probably 8 years old, and plopped the baby and her arms in her lap. The little girl giggled but was super shy and didn't know what to do. It is so neat to see how much Mary Selwyn enjoys other kids.
We got a good report from the doctor. She weighed 20 pounds 13 ounces. She's actually only gained 13 ounces since her last appointment. I guess all that walking has kept her weight gain to a minimum. She was also 29 1/4 inches. Turns out she gets that Shackelford height and is in the 95% of height.
One last exciting moment of this week, on Wednesday Mary Selwyn said Da Da. She has been saying mama, dada and all kinds of other sounds for several months now but she was just talking to hear herself talk. Wednesday she said it with recognition. We were looking at pictures and she found one of Shay and said "da da." Then when he walked in the door yesterday she looked right at him and said "da da." She knows her daddy and can now call him by name. You should see Shay light up when she says it. It is so sweet and erases any jealousy I might have.
Nine months old....I can hardly wrap my mind around that!
