Lilypie First Birthday tickers

Friday, December 17, 2010

I have been really bad about posting. Lily is doing great! She had a great birthday and has been walking everywhere for about a month now. She loves the freedom! She also has become a tease. She loves to tease us! She gets so excited when Mark comes home from work and distraught when he leaves for work if she is awake! She spends her days pretending to talk to Dad on the phone, caring for her babies, or emptying the kitchen drawers!
"I want more chocolate cake" Can't imagine where she got that attitude from.
Lily wasn't sure about Santa but did great! She has two more chances to see him
we will see how she does!

Growning up too fast

Loves to feed herself and eat almost anything!
Loves to wave and talk with her hands

Checking herself out in her Halloween Costume

Getting way too big!

If you look close you can see her teeth!

A wild nap

I can't believe it's been 8 months already!

It is hard to believe that Lily is 8 months old. These eight months sure have gone a lot faster than the 8 months I was pregnant. She is growing up so fast and is so much fun! We just love her! Some of her favorite things to do are: put everything in her mouth, play with her toys, squeal, talk- especially saying "Dada, " take bathes, clap, eat dry cereal in her high chair, go swimming, look at pictures on the computer, be tickled, play with her family(she is loving having Sam here), and smile at total strangers. She isn't crawling yet, which is fine with me -- I don't know if I am ready for that yet. She can scoot around some to get what she is after. We took Mommy/baby swim lessons in June and she loved them. She wasn't scared of the water, even when I took her under. She got pretty good at kicking on her stomach and back and even blew some bubbles. It was a lot of fun to do with her and I plan to do it again in the fall.
Sam arrived on Saturday and we took him, Becca, Lily, cousin Syd, and Becca's roommate to 7 peaks. They all had a great time. Lily hung out in the Lazy River and Wave pool in her floatie and had a great time.
Here are some recent pictures! Chillin in the bath tub!
This picture captures her personality! She is the happiest little girl and has a very high pitched squeal when she is excited!

She loves to play with Sam and watches everything he does. Sam is such a great big brother! I don't know what I will do when he leaves at the end of the summer.

Just having fun!

It's been a crazy month

We have had a crazy month. We moved last weekend and are still trying to finish cleaning out the old house and get everything unpacked at the new house. Lily seems to like her room and is sleeping in her crib out of our room! The other day she was really fussy in the car and when I got her out this how she looked!
7 months old and loves to sit and put everything in her mouth!
What a cutie!

She loves to play with the baby in the mirror!

We had Dakota spend the weekend with us! I don't know how people have twins! It was very busy but fun! The girls had fun together but the dog was not happy to have two babies in the house!

Sam will be here in a few weeks for the summer and the other boys come later. Our goal is to get all unpacked before he gets here.

A fun Saturday

Today we went to Thanksgiving Point with Mark's Dad to see the farm animials. Lily seemed to enjoy it except when a cow came too close to her and she broke into tears. It was funny!

Jack made a new friend at the car show we came upon!

Mother's Day was really special this year! I feel so blessed to have Lily in my life and to be her Mom. We are so lucky to have such a sweet, happy girl! She is just so much fun! It is so fun watching her learn new things and experience things for the first time! And her smile just melts my heart!
