Lily | 8th Month (Jun-Jul)

Lily, you’re growing too fast!

One of the highlights from this month is that you cut four teeth within 6 days!

  • 7/5/15: Your first tooth came in!  It was your Lower-Right B in the chart below (on the left side of the chart).
  • 7/8/15: Your second tooth! Lower-Left A 🙂
  • 7/10/15: Tooth #3! Upper-Right A
  • 7/11/15: Upper-Left A





There have been a lot of other things going on, too…

6/21: You love bouncing up and down!

6/26: You pulled yourself up for the first time:

In other news… you fed yourself for the first time on 7/3 (you grabbed some egg and got it into your mouth!).


6/25: Such a good eater!

7/2: You love your Nana!

7/3: You’re starting to get into things. It’s the beginning of the end! 😉

7/4: You like to climb all over us… 🙂

And sometimes it doesn’t end so well…

You’ve gotten really good at catching yourself when sitting up. You also do this thing when trying to stand (when we hold you up): you curl your toes underneath you (you also curl them on your swing).

Like this:

And this:

And, when you’re jostled, you always bring your hand to your mouth (which makes me nervous you’re going to bite your hand!). You also tend to sit with your tongue out over your gums. Be careful!

One of my favorite things is the shape your profile takes when you’re looking down. Your cheeks puff out and your lips stick out…
I also love how, when you’re done nursing, your lower lip rests ever so slightly out in front of your upper. That’s how I know you’re finished. Like this!

7/6: We went to a Baby Sign Language class at the library. It was nice to get out of the house and learn a few signs. Now the question is… can Mommy be consistent enough to use them? 😉

7/11: We celebrated your great-grandpa’s 90th birthday! He keeps saying what a “pretty little thing” you are.

7/13: Your hair continues to grow. And so… the obligatory bath-time mohawk:

7/18: Here you are, exploring the house… and discovering the vents! 😉

We love you, sweet girl! <3
