Lily | 7th Month (May-Jun)

Lily, stop growing so fast!  🙂

So much has happened in the last month.  Daddy and I are having so much fun with you!

You’ve been sleeping pretty great, but teething unfortunately. You tend to go to bed around 7:30 (give or take 30 minutes), and sleep until 4 or 5.  At that point, you spend some quality time with Daddy while Mommy gets some work done.  Then, we have a nanny come to play with you for a few hours while Mommy finishes her work.  Her name is Lisa and you seem to really like her!

The great thing is, by around 1pm, I’m done for the day, so you and I have the whole afternoon together.  We like to go shopping, run errands, play outside, take Duke for walks, and play on the carpet.

You’ve been in Sunday School a few times.  Your first time was 5/24 or 5/31 and you did great.  But your second time, on 6/7, wasn’t so good.  We’re hoping that after a few more times, you’ll get used to it!

You’ve been eating great.  You’ve tried so many foods, but your favorites seem to be: avocado, banana, apple puree, and sweet potato.  The ones you’re unsure of at the moment are: yogurt, cheese, tuna, and kiwi.  You enjoy playing with slices of lemon and lime, which is pretty funny to Daddy and me.


  • 6/7/15 – First haircut – It was getting a little unkempt in the back, so we decided to clean it up a little. Not too many 7-month-olds get haircuts!
  • 6/8/15 – First crawl – You crawled with one knee at a time (rather than army crawling).
  • 6/8/15 – Learning names – You’ve been doing this for maybe a month, but we’re seeing it so clearly now. When we ask “where’s Duke?” or “where’s Daddy?”, you turn to look at them.  You are learning so quickly!
  • 6/25/15 – Crawling! – Not just one “step” but multiple.  Amazing!


5/20/15 – You really enjoy eating cucumber!  It’s nice because you can hold it easily by yourself.  But, you tend to drop it often. 😉 Duke doesn’t seem to mind that part, though!

5/21/15 – Here’s you at your 6-month doctor appointment.  You were very squirmy while we waited (like 45 minutes!) for the doctor.  You had to get three shots, but you were pretty tough.  We’re so proud of you!

Your stats:

  • Head circumference – 57%
  • Weight – 78%
  • Height – 89%

6/6/15 – Our new Saturday morning ritual… family bed time! Duke even gets to join in sometimes! 🙂

6/6/15 – We had a busy month, going up to Grandma and Grandpa’s almost every weekend! You were a trooper in the car.

6/6/15 – Your first time in the pool (at Grandma and Grandpa’s).  You liked it!

6/6/15 – Playing in the grass with Hannah, at Grandma and Grandpa’s.

6/8/15 – You spent some time in our kiddie pool with some frozen apple puree. That was such a sweet afternoon.  I loved enjoying the beautiful weather with my beautiful daughter!

6/7/15 – Your first haircut!

6/16/15 – I just loved watching you sleep like this.  You are loved, Lily!

6/16/15 – At Costco… your first time sitting in the cart like a big girl! You normally hang out in the Ergo, but you did great!
