Lily | 4th Month (Feb-Mar)

Lily Bug, we cannot believe how quickly the time is flying with you. You’re already a third into your first year! Stop growing!!

Everyone keeps saying how much you look like Daddy.  What do you think?? 😉

Over the last month, you’ve hit some pretty great milestones.

2/25: Your first laugh!
2/27: First roll-over (tummy to back!)
Late February/Early March: You started “talking” with us by blowing raspberries back-and-forth. The sweetest thing!
3/16: You had your 4-month check-up… you’re growing so fast!


You had a visit from Aunt Boo on 2/20:


Here’s you and Hannah on 2/25:


Nana, Avery, and Kennedy came to visit you on 2/27:


On 2/27, we all went out to a restaurant for the first time ever.  We went to Islands to celebrate 10 years since Dad’s and my first date!  You did great!


More bath time fun 🙂  (3/3/15)


You’ve really started getting into your exersaucer!  (3/6/15)


Here’s you with Nana, Avery, and Kennedy, celebrating Papa’s birthday! (3/10/15)


We went up to Aunt Sara and Uncle Noah’s on 3/12/15 for a visit!  The video below shows you blowing raspberries to Hannah.  This is one of the first times the two of you have actually interacted.  So sweet!


Here’s all three of us at Karl Strauss… your second restaurant experience.  🙂  You did great!  (3/13/15)


Lily, Duke, and Mommy, hanging out!  (3/16/15)


And here’s you at your four-month doctor visit on 3/16/15.  You were such a sweetheart.  I felt terrible when you had to get your shots!  🙁  But you were a trooper.  You cried for a few minutes and then fell asleep.  We snuggled a lot that day!

You’ll also see your stats in the third picture.  You’re growing like a weed!  The doctor said you look great!  🙂


Hanging out with Duke on the couch!  (3/17/15)

Lily | 3rd Month (Jan-Feb)

Lily, Lily, Lily…

I’ve decided that your name stands for Lily, I Love You.  😉  You are just the sweetest thing!

This month, you’ve been into:

  • The ceiling fan in the office: You could look up at it for hours! When you’re upset, we take you to the office and have you look up at it… it usually calms you down!
  • Your pack-and-play: You love looking up at the toys hanging from above!
  • The downstairs bathroom: You just cannot seem to get enough of yourself in here!  This is another place we take you when you’re upset.  It’s almost like the minute we walk in the bathroom, you turn on the charm!
  • The chandelier in your room: Just like with the ceiling fan, you LOVE looking up at this light (especially when it’s lit).  When you’re sad, we walk “laps” around the rug underneath the light until you calm down.

Here are some of the things we’ve been up to this past month:

Doing tummy time in your pack-and-play:

Visiting Nana, Avery, and Kennedy:

Getting some pretty awesome baths!  You’re liking it much more than you did a couple months ago!  Daddy and I sure love spending that time with you, too.  You are such a sweet girl.

Visiting Grandma, Aunt Sara, Aunt Kelly, and Hannah:

Giving lots of the sweetest smiles ever!  They are our favorite!  You smile when we talk to you, when we sing to you, and when we make funny noises.

Your hair continues to grow!  Everyone who meets you always comments on how much hair you have.  It’s coming in much lighter, and sometimes even looks reddish.  It sure is fun to style… 🙂

Grandma Dawn came over and watched you while Daddy and I went on a date!
