I don't know why I continue to slack on my blog! Being a mom is pretty time consuming and Lily is so much more active that by the end of the day all I want to do it put my feet up and veg! So by now (2.5 months since my last post) so much has changed. Month 8 was a big month for Lily, from one day to the next baby girl was crawling, laughing, waving bye-bye, and she got her 2 bottom teeth! She's such a big girl now. She's also just started clapping, using one baby finger to point at things, and trying to stand on her own! She has been scaling on EVERYTHING and ANYTHING she can pull her self up on. We sing a lot more and she loves "the itsy-bitsy spider", sometimes if she's eating and doesn't want to open her mouth all I have to do is start singing it and she opens wide like a baby bird! Hilarious! She also does the cutest thing where she scrunches her noes and breaths in and out...doesn't sound that cute, but we call it "viejitos". HAHAHA...it's a mexican thing!
We also recently started attending classes at The Little Gym with Jill and Braden! I used to work at one in Austin so I was nervous to take her to the one here. I was scared I would pull a "typical monica" and try to take over, but the staff and instructors are awesome! I had no problem sitting back and enjoying the class with Lily. She's becoming so independent and brave! She crawled through this tunnel all by herself!
When Lily turned 9 months I took her to take some portraits, but professional pictures are no longer as easy as when she was newborn - 6 months. All she wanted to do was crawl away and explore the studio. She would fuss and refused to smile if I sat her down. It was actually quite a work out chasing her around! (The picture below is "viejitos")
Easter just passed and Lily was NOT amused by the eggs, baskets, confetti, bunnies...nothing was entertaining! Hopefully next year she'll be more in the SPRING SPIRIT and enjoy herself more. She was absolutely adorable though!
Lately I've been giving Lily her bath in the big girl tub (but still in the baby tub). We had to move from the kitchen sink because she was grabbing things and splashing EVERYWHERE. She was a little apprehensive at first, but she's got the hang of it now and she's free to splish splash while taking her bath!
Lastly Lily had her first spaghetti. The pictures say it all! Enjoy :o)
Lily does something new everyday and I really do want to keep up with things on the blog. Sorry if I don't write as often as I should! Keep checking in though, I'll get back in to it, I PROMISE ;) Take care!!!
