tooth

Are you ok, Lily?

Last week while I was making lunch for Lily, I peaked into the living room where she was playing and I couldn’t believe my eyes.

She wasn’t standing.

She wasn’t sitting.

She was lying down on her play mat playing with her toys.

Lying down!

I had not seen her like that since she was probably 4-5 months old.

I almost grabbed the thermometer and took her temperature.

She was fine.

She was just chilling!

10 month babble!

I can’t believe Lily is 10 months old today.

10 months!!!!!

She is only 2 months away from being 1!

At 10 months she now has 4 teeth on top and is getting 2 more on the bottom making it a total of 8 teeth.

She is not quite walking yet but is so close and so eager to do so.

She stands up and back down with the help of objects but not quite on her own just yet.

She eats all sorts of food. (including mine and Will’s) 😉

She sleeps all through the night. From 8pm until 7am. (YAY!!!!)

Lately she has been only taking 1 nap instead of the 2 she used to.

She is smiling more and more, but don’t think she lost her serious side all the way…..

And at home she is a little babbling fool. 🙂

HAPPY 10 MONTHS LILY!!!!!!!!!!!! We love you soooooooooooo much!

Rocks and water are so much fun!!

Before Lily was born, Will and I would joke about not buying any toys for her (because we hate most of the toys out there) and how she would just play with sticks and stones.

Well, she has turned out to be just that kid! (for now anyway)

No matter what toy we bring for her to play outside with, she much prefers to explore nature and play with rocks, sticks, grass, dirt, bugs.

She must have been listening after all…. 😉

and a SHOUT OUT to…

LILY!

Lily turned 9 months young on saturday. (this post is long overdue, I’ve been having problems posting)

At 9 months old, Lily is all over the place! She crawls everywhere and has us walk with her as much as she can. She can’t wait until she can do it all by herself.

Her top left tooth is finally showing through. (took long enough!)

She has grown so much since she has been here in WV.

This place has done wonders for her. 🙂

my little rock n roller…

Library fun

We continue to go to the library on mondays and it is the best thing. EVER!

It is so great seeing all the wonderful progress the little ones are making.

When we first started going, they were all babies. None of them could really do anything.

Now, they are big infants! Most of them are crawling, sitting on their own, lifting themselves up, a lot of them have teeth, they are now aware of each other.

Moms are already talking about and planning the very first birthday party. It is all happening way too fast!

so happy to be surrounded by books

with Samantha. intense infant converstation

and a SHOUT OUT to…

LILY!!

She is 8 months old today.

Where has time gone?

Does anyone else feel like time goes by so much faster when you are watching someone grow?

At 8 months Lily is doing all sorts of things. Crawling, teething, eating all sorts of food, trying to stand up on her own, clapping, pointing.

She is the center of our universe.

Look who’s growing into the most beautiful Lily. (tears…)

Lily vs. teething

When will the next little teeth show up?

Lily is still going through the teething battle. ( I know, it lasts a while)

Yesterday she could not get enough of this green teether.

She was rubbing her gums so hard, I could hear her in the next room!

the cold green one wins!

Things we LOVE!

Mini bagels!!!

The other day we were getting some bagels for the house and I spotted some mini bagels in the bin.

They didn’t have plain but they had potato.

I got 4.

The moment we were out of the bagel shop I handed one to Lily.

She LOVED it!

She held on SO tight and chipped away at it with her 2 little bottom teeth.

She practically ate half of it in one sitting.

you see how tight she is holding on? Lily wears a onesie that was a gift

Things we LOVE!

Watching Lily grow and develop.

Lily is becoming quite the little character and we LOVE it!! 🙂

She is smiling more and more showing her two bottom teeth and she makes this hissing sound while she does it. It’s hilarious!

Here she is as I captured her smiling, hissing and playing with her feet after waking from her morning nap yesterday.
