A Big Girl

Lily is getting so big, so quickly! She has started solid food at dinner time and so far she LOVES yams. I bought a variety of organic veggies and baked, pureed, and then froze them in ice cube portions. At dinner time we mix an ice cube, breast milk, and a little bit of rice cereal and she had enjoyed her "dinner" meals quite a bit. At her well baby check at the beginning of the month, she was 24 inches long, 13.9 lbs, and her head was 16 1/2 inches in circumference. She is such a happy little girl too, and she continues to delight our hearts!!

Pure Sweetness.......

.....need I say more? Lily is such a little love. She is 4 months old now and loves to "talk," is teething, is sleeping well through most nights and only wakes 1-2 times to nurse, is learning to roll, and loves her Molly Dolly. She also enjoys being sung and read to........her favorite books are How Do I Love You ?and You Are My I Love You.

This is Lily giving Molly Dolly "loves."

Standing Tall

Lately Lily has come to really love standing up, with help of course. She stands for quite a while and then when she gets tired, her chubby legs slowly collapse. It is a fun game we have been playing with her. She is able to balance herself better too. A few weeks ago when we did this, she looked like a shaky hoola-huper, as she tried to gain her own balance!

She got so excited with herself that she looked up at daddy.

A Satruday in Medford

Last April my grandparents (my dad's parents) moved from Gresham to Medford to be closer to my dad and his brother. We took advantage of the 3 day weekend we had and went for a day trip visit. This was the first time Mama and Papa had seen Lily and they were taken with her sweet temperament, her chattiness, and curious personality. It was really special watching them interact with Lily too.
After we had lunch, Nana enjoyed playing with Lily too.

This next picture had nothing to do with our visit, but I just love it. Marla took it last week with her cell phone and sent it to mine, and it is now my screen saver. She captured Lily as her natural perfect self and every time I see this picture, I can't help but smile!

This is the face that I love to wake up to in the early morning....
This is the face of the one I love to kiss......

....and, this is the face of the one I love to come home to.

So Blessed

There are days when I am tired, have lots to accomplish, and am generally very busy. It is on those days that I pause and my heart becomes overwhelmed with how blessed I truly am. Being with Lily is the highlight of my day. Whether that be when she comes to school to nurse, or when I get home. She is our precious treasure. She loves bath times. She didn't used to until we figured out that she likes in much better with a constantly warm wash cloth on her tummy.

When she was in the womb she constantly had her legs crossed, which we were able to see during the ultra sounds. Even when nursing she still loves to have those chubby legs crossed...and how "lady like" I might add!

We often tease that after nursing she is "milk drunk." Even burping her doesn't bring her out of her drunken state.

Lily is also very happy, which makes for the most heartwarming pictures. Here she was playing with Daddy in the kitchen one evening after dinner.

Lily Pictures

I haven't been the best at blogging since Lily has been born, but I have resolved to change that for good, starting with this post. Here are some pictures we had taken when Lily was 13 days old.....I couldn't figure out how to rotate them, but they are still so sweet!

Jason snapped these before church yesterday after Lily was done nursing.....she is the delight of our hearts and we can't imagine a sweeter little girl!
