Busy Baby

It's been a long time since I've posted. It's been a little crazy. Lily and I nanny two days a week for two adorable little girls: Kirkland who is 2 and Kjirste who is 1. We also tutor once a week at St. Roch, the school I taught at last year. We also try to help Grandpa Mark once a week in his office. So needless to say, there haven't been too many down moments.
Above are 2 pictures of Lily in her Exersaucer from her cousin Deardra. She LOVES it!!!! Her new achievement is rolling over. I honestly can't believe how big she is getting. So the questions everyone has been asking lately is, "Does she sleep well?" With a big smile, I tell them, "No." Lily does not like to sleep. She doesn't like going to bed or taking naps. She is a party girl for sure. If I'm lucky if she takes 3-4 twenty minute naps a day. I hoping this is just a stage and she will soon grow to love naps and sleep a night.

Happy 4 month birthday!

So this picture was from the first round of photos. Lily Grace was NOT cooperating, so I put her down for a nap and the second round was much better.

Sup Mr. Bear?!

This one just made me laugh.

Here's my personal favorite. It looks like she's holding hands with Mr. Bear. I can't believe she's been alive for 4 months. She's already doubled her weight. Isn't that kinda crazy? Think about it....what if someone told you that you had to double your weight in 4 months and that the only thing you could do was drink milk? Babies are pretty amazing.

This blog has really been so much fun. I really had no idea so many people check it. I love when random people come up to me and say things like,"Oh, so your in-laws were in last weekend?" I must look at them confused and they continue, "I read it on your blog." Ha! I'm so happy to have all you wonderful people checking up on Lily.

Some of Lily's Favorites

Lately, Lily ALWAYS has her tongue out. She's loves to smack her lips, too!!! Definitely her #1 favorite thing to do.

Here's Lily's second favorite thing to do....chill in her bumbo seat. She thinks she a big kid when she sits in it.

Her third favorite is her Baby Einstein. She will talk to the bird and ladybug for seriously 30 minutes. She also loves to make faces into the mirror and kick the animals.

Yesterday Lily laughed for the very first time. It was adorable and I obviously went crazy. I'll give you one guess who made her laugh......of course, Tyler!!!! She also laughed at Grandma Mark. But will she laugh at mom...oh no!! I'm just the one that takes care of her all day, changing diapers, cleaning up spit up, trying to avoid getting puked on, and feeding her in the middle of the night. Surely, she'll give me a laugh soon.

Grandma, Grandpa, and Auntie Emily

This weekend we had visitors!! They couldn't believe how big she has gotten since Christmas. She can sit up with a little support. We're still waiting for her to roll over. She LOVES talking to inanimate objects and anything she's holding goes straight to her mouth. Lily loved being held by Grandma, Grandpa, and Auntie Emily!!! We can tell she misses them tons!
