Of all of Lyla's awesome attributes, one of my favorites has to be her legs. We we visited the doctor back in December, they measured her and she was in the 50th percentile for weight and 99th percentile for length. Since then she's probably moved up in weight and definitely is leading the pack in length.

Most of the time you can't tell how tall/long she is because she's folded up nicely and hidden under cute outfits. But every once in a while she sill really stretch out and I'm constantly surprised at how long and strong her legs are. She's always pushing her legs out, whether it be during a diaper change (see picture), standing around (see picture), when digesting her lunch, or while sleeping (see picture), and it's quite amusing to see.

Just in the past week or so, Katherine and I both feel like she's doubled in size again and already looks too big for the swing that she sleeps in (we decided to transition her to her crib this weekend, wish us luck). Anyway, the kicks against my stomach (along with the headbutts and punches to the face) are cute and slightly uncomfortable (just like when Chuck Norris does it, except cuter) and just another attribute of this sweet little girl that I love.
