Video Recap

In looking back through friend's blogs, I realized how much I enjoyed watching the videos of their little ones. Here's a video recap of the first (almost) 6 months with Lillie.

10 days old. We are still getting used to each other. I was still very tired and recovering from the delivery. Seeing her little accidental smiles made it all (well, most of it!) worth it!

One month old. Our morning routine at this point consisted of taking Harvey for a walk and having Lillie fall asleep in her sling. The sling or Moby wrap worked about 99% of the time for getting her to nap! Notice her snoring. She is such a loud sleeper!

Here she is at 3 1/2 months singing along to one of her favorite songs!

And at 4 1/2 months old, here she is in the mornings. She is definitely a morning baby. Some of our most fun times happen first thing in the morning!

Here she is at 5 months shaking her rattle. I can definitely start to see a new alertness and awareness in her eyes.

And finally, taken this morning. She's about 10 days shy of 6 months and we've been practicing sitting up unsupported. Here she is strutting her stuff!

Five Months!

Happy 5 Months Lillie!

Relaxing with her dad! Notice the rattle - it's a lovely gift from Olive, one of Lillie's pals. Lillie LOVES the rattle. It is just about every picture!

Lillie enjoying her some boppy time!



Let's talk about something for a second - Lillie has yet to roll over! For all those non-baby milestone experts out there, this should be happening by now! Her pediatrician isn't nearly as concerned as I am about this - noting that Lillie is in the 89th percentile for weight and that it's harder for big babies to lift and roll their own body weight. So here we are doing tummy time, hoping that Lillie will feel like rolling over some day!

And while she doesn't roll over, look what I found her daddy teaching her! She'll be the first non-rolling over walking baby!
