Lily at 6 months old!

Our little girl is now half a year old.  It’s amazing how fast time flies… not long ago she was just a wee little thing.

Lily at 2, 4, and 6 months!

I'm getting bigger every day!

She now weighs 15 and half pounds (50%) and she’s 26 and a quarter inches long (50%).  That makes her perfectly proportional and right smack dab in the middle of the pack.  Which means there are some really chubby babies out there, and some really skinny babies (I’m looking at you, Gabe) stretching out the curve.  She seems like such a round little baby to me, but I think my perspective has been seriously shifted by memories of Gabe as a baby.  If she keeps this up, she’s going to pass him (and there’s a 7 year gap)!  Hahaha – no that won’t happen.  I expect she’s start stretching and getting thin once she’s upright and running around.  It’s amazing how babies do that.  One day they are your little chubby babies crawling around on the floor, the next day they are active toddlers running full throttle through the kitchen.

Lily has made quite a few changes over the last two months.  She can roll over from her back to her tummy, and sometimes the other way around.  She can sit up with minimal support, but will still fall over if she reaches for something or looks around.  Another month or two and I think she’ll be able to do it herself.  She’s making all kinds of noises (still more shrieking then I’d like) which by far her “mama” and “yum yum yum” noises are my favorites (although the low growling is very funny – it totally catches people off guard).  She’s eating two solid meals a day (lunch and dinner) and now she’s got some stinky diapers (sorry hon, but you do!).  She’s also sleeping through the night – 8pm to 7am roughly, give or take a half hour either way.  She would have been doing this from the get go, but I resisted cutting out that list middle of the night feeding because she had a tendency to want to get up at 5am then.  Now with the added weight and solid food she seems to be good till 7am and we’re all much happier and rested.  Also – she scoots everywhere.  Laying on her back, she arches her neck and back and kicks out with her feet, scooting up a few inches.  As long as she’s doing that – she’s going to have a bit of a bald spot on the back of her head from rubbing all her hair off.

You can see pictures of her scooting, plus many more.  I took way to many photos of her, but she’s just so adorable!  Enjoy:

Lily is just too cute and I tried to capture her doing everything she now can do. Which means I took way too many photos!

Lily’s New Sound

Lily has a pretty small set of sounds she likes to make best at the moment.  She’s got a low growl, a high-pitched shriek, and a motor-boat noise (pbbbtttt).  Well, she just added a fourth sound to her set of favorites.  Watch this movie to find out what:

I’m pretty biased, but I think it’s my favorite so far.  She’s just too cute!

Introducing Mr. Gabe

I’d like you to meet Mr. Gabe:

Mr. Gabe

Mr. Gabe

He can be a bit stern looking, but he’s actually quite nice.  He has a mustache, a deep voice, and often wears a brown wool hat.  He also likes to leave notes for people, inviting them to visit him for a party, or to play a game.  He sent me this message the other day:

“Find a new friend.  A new friend indeed. A robot ish friend for you and me!”

It was an invitation to see a new robot contraption he had made using a chair, a bunch of paper, wires, and his iPod player.  Very cute.

Mr Gabe

Gabe like's to dress up as "Mr. Gabe" sometimes. He dons a mustache and a hat, and runs around talking in a deep voice. Very cute!
