If you guessed "Bottom Right Tooth", you were right!

The pesky thing seems to have finally broken through (barely).  Addy's first tooth is the lower right one!  Derek was disappointed that I didn't make "egg tooth" one of the options on the poll.  My theory was that it's a little late for Addy to finally be getting an egg tooth.

She is also officially a big fan of bananas and actively tries to help find the spoon with her mouth when we feed them to her.

Roll Over Fiend

Addy is now officially a roll over master (front to back to the right only).  While entertaining and exciting, it does make it more difficult to get her to practice crawling because as soon as you put her on her tummy, she starts to flip over.

We had a very good father's day with family over the weekend.  Addy was baptized at church on Sunday and we celebrated anniversaries and birthdays while we were all together (Aunt Katie dubbed it "Happy Fill-In-The-Blank Day".

Twice in one day!

Addy rolled herself over (front to back) twice today--hooray! When she's done it in the past, it's been on accident while chasing a toy or trying to stuff her fingers in her mouth. Today it was quite purposeful.

We're also experiencing a battle of wits at our house for the past week. Just when I start to work on getting the red-headed wonder weaned to all formula, she declares that formula is gross and refuses to eat it. Spits the bottle out, just lets the formula drool all over her chin, occasionally gags--all kinds of fun and totally out of the blue. I took her to the doctor to check to make sure it's not an ear infection or anything. Nope, she's just opinionated. (Not that I can really blame her. The stuff is disgusting. You couldn't pay me enough to drink formula.). Maybe when she's done cutting this tooth she'll be more agreeable.

Redefining Hand-Eye Coordination

Addy had another visit with the pediatrician yesterday.  She's an all-around 90th percentile kid at 17lb10oz and 26.5 inches.  The nurse said her head circumference is at 44.5 cm, but I get closer to 44.0 when I measure it at home (either is just fine and an improvement over where she was at before the shunt revision).

She's working on getting better at her hands-and-knees pose and putting one hand in front of the other.  My guess is she'll "army crawl" before she does a four-point crawl, but it's exciting anyway.  Addy's latest favorite thing to do is to grab and poke at your face.  Apparently she thinks that hand-eye-coordination means coordinating her hand to find your eyes.
