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!

Lily at 4 months

Lily turned 4 months old on the Feb 12th (the day of the class Valentine’s Day party).  I took some pictures the next day, but haven’t had a chance to upload them till now.

So how big is she?  She’s 13 pounds, 4 ounces (that’s exactly 50th percentile) and she’s 25 and half inches tall (or long, depending how you want to look at it).  Her height puts her in the 90th percentile!  That’s two check ups in a row she’s been in the 90th for height.  I wonder if she’s slow down, or if we’re going to end up with a tall girl?  You better watch out Gabe, your sister may end up being taller then you!  Always funny when the older sibling is the shortest – I know it – of the 5 kids in my family, I (the oldest) ended up being the shortest!

Without further ado – here’s the pictures of Lily (20 of them!) in an album.  Go check it out!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Gabe and Lily for Valentines

Gabe and Lily love you!

We are having a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend.  On Friday, we (Lily and I) went to Gabe’s school and volunteered for his Valentine’s Day party.  Mike made 48 gluten-free, nut-free, but super yummy heart-shaped sugar cookies.  They were a hit!  The kids played a version of pin-the-tail where it was a heart they had to stick on a life-sized picturethey drew of their helper teacher.  They made heart-shaped decorations, passed out Valentines (Gabe had cute home-made ones with a picture of him and Lily inside), and did a huge dance routine for the parents:

It was super cute, and that’s only a couple minutes – it went on for at least 6 minutes (it took me a while to get my camera out).  What a great way for the teacher to make the kids work off some steam.  Gabe’s in the back on the left side, in a red shirt.

Lily was a huge hit at the party – all the parents, kids, teachers had to look at her and pet her head (let’s hope she doesn’t get sick!) and just in general coo at her.  And she was her most charming self – smiling her biggest smiles and was such a good baby all party long.  Yay!  Here is her Valentine’s Day outfit:

She’s becoming a bit of a squirmer – hard to get a picture of her.  She’s starting to practice rolling over.  She can get close – on her side – but can’t quite get that arm tucked up so she rolls all the way over.  But she’s working hard so it won’t be long!  A close up of my little cutie:

Such a sweetheart!

Another Valentine’s Day outfit she wore this weekend was pajamas – Gabe’s old jammies that he wore in his first Valentine’s Day card.  So if you still have it – you can compare them.  Lily is 4 months old, and Gabe would be at least 8 months, maybe 9 months in his picture.  Here’s Lily:

Bath Time!

Here’s a little video of Lily at bath time:

Bath time for Lily!

Bath time for Lily!

It’s kind of long (one minute) and I gave her a wash cloth for modesty (so she doesn’t get mad at me when she’s older and finds out I shared bath time videos of her – hehehe).  It’s neat to contrast how much bigger she has got since her last bath time photos I shared with you.  Enjoy!

Movie Clips!

I was playing around with our camera and taking short little movie clips.  It works pretty good, but I had to find some video software to edit and create movies that I could share.  After a while, I got it working and I’m glad because it’s pretty cute!  I’m going to have to take more of these “action shots” of Gabe and Lily.

Here is a movie of Gabe on his Ezy Roller.  He got this from Grammy K. for Christmas and has really got the hang of it now.  He zooms around so quick, and doesn’t crash into things that often

This movie is of Lily playing on her play mat.  She really likes to kick the windchimes, and bat at the little parrot.  The super cute kimono sleepsack is from Katie (she always manages to find the most unique and sweetest clothes!) and is one of our favorite bed time outfits for Lily.  Sleep sacks are just so cute!

Tell me what you think of these little movies.  Should I make more?  Any suggestions of what you want to see?

3 Months Old!

Today Lily is 3 Months old!  Happy Birthday Lily!

She’s changed a lot in the last month.  She’s bigger (over 11 pounds now, not sure how tall).  More hair is coming in, and she’s losing some her long, dark newborn hair.  The newer hair is so fuzzy and a lighter shade of brown.  Her eyes are brighter blue, less of that newborn navy blue.

She’s also much more aware of her surroundings.  She’s very good at tracking things – if she hears Gabe or Mike in the room, even if he’s behind her, she’ll look around and smile at him.  She discovered she has hands and feet – and she can make them do things.  She bats at toys, kicks in the tubby.  And not just randomly – she’ll look right at something and hit it with her hands or feet.  She was very funny in the bath yesterday – she kept kicking her bottle of shampoo over.  I’d right it, and she’d knock it over again with a smile.  “Look what my feet can do!”

You can also put something in her hand and she will hold it and turn it this way and that; all while staring at it with a look of concentration on her face.  She’ll taste it, and then look at again … and then shake it like mad.  So silly.

And now that she’s 3 months, I’m putting away all her 0-3 month clothes and getting out the 3-6 ones.  As I was doing this, I noticed I had not yet taken a picture of her in her Thanksgiving outfit, so I snapped one of those today too, before I boxed it up:

Such a sweetie!  The outfit is from her Aunt Katie.  Lily was so darling at Thanksgiving, all though then we had to roll up the cuffs more!

She’s getting so big!  And we have confirmation of it – today at the doctor’s office we found out Lily is 9lbs. 2oz!  WOW!  It took Gabe forever to get that big, and Lily has done it in a month.  Lily is going to be a baby nothing like her brother, it seems.  He was a difficult baby at night his first few months – up for hours of rocking and walking and crying.  She sleeps like a dream – only waking up once at night after a 5 hour stretch, and then back to sleep for another 3 or 4 hours.  He was easy going and mellow during the day (probably catching up on lost sleep from the night before!) and she’s awake, and often fussy if not being fed or walked around (she’s not content to just sit still).  It’s amazing how different babies can be!
