Lily

So little yet taking over already

We received Lily’s new interlocking foam floor mat today that we got from Soft Tiles.

It’s wonderful! We have been wanting it for a while so Lily can get more tummy time and have something soft to play on later however, it takes up the whole living room.

Again, living in a small 1 bedroom, we have limited space. Will and I have become experts on creating space where there isn’t any. lol

So until we move (hopefully sooner than later) and until Lily gets her room, we will just all have fun on this mat in the middle of the living room and make do! 🙂

Here is Lily enjoying herself on her Soft Tiles in a bodysuit by Old Navy, pants and socks by babyGap. And all of us having some fun before Lily’s bed time. Lily wears pink pajamas by babyGap.

Not so relaxing bath time

Will, Lily and I live in a 1 bedroom apartment that is only 850sq feet.

It only has 1 small bathroom in which there is a shower, NO bathtub!

Bath time is becoming quite challenging as Lily grows.

Yes, we do have a baby tub for her but it is quite hard to get it out of the shower after it’s been filled with water without getting water all over the floor.

Once she is in it (something she seems to be outgrowing also), she splashes water EVERYWHERE! When I’m done giving her a bath, I look like I jumped in the bath with her with my clothes on.

While I was pregnant with Lily, I would read about how important bath time is because it’s so relaxing. Not so in this place. Did I forget that we didn’t have a bathtub or did I think that one was going to magically appear?

Note to self: When we move, the new place MUST have a bathtub!

Here is Lily in her little tub, a baby shower gift from our friend Elycia.

Things we LOVE!

Red! As in the painting I did.

Lily LOVES Red.

Every time we are in the bedroom changing her diaper or playing, Lily can’t take her eyes off of Red. She smiles real big at her and, in her own Lily way, even talks to her.

Here is Lily only 3 days old with Red in the background.

Little toe sock fuzz

Let’s admit it, there is nothing cute about sock fuzz. On big toes that is. However, little toes with sock fuzz are about the cutest things ever!

The first time I saw sock fuzz in Lily’s toes, I just about cried with happiness. I couldn’t believe little toes could get sock fuzz and how cute they were.

Just wanted to share some little toe sock fuzz with you…. 😉

Baby blood :(

UGH! Yesterday while I was clipping Lily’s nails, she was awake and moving so, I accidentally clipped the corner of her little thumb. 🙁

Clipping her nails has been something that I have dreaded doing from the beginning. Those tiny fingers and those tiny nails….one has to be SO careful!

Once I clipped her thumb, it started to bleed and baby blood started coming out. 🙁

Lily didn’t even feel or notice anything, I of course have yet to recover and felt like the worst mom.

Here is a picture of Lily’s first boo-boo done by none other than ME!
