Lila Lunes:
8 MONTHS and sassy.

Wow. Lila's busy. See? She can't even look at the camera. Her plate's just far too full.

Q. What's new this week?
A. I shall bullet the list regarding Lila's highlights this week. 
  • Enjoying dancing more than ever. Prefers Bob Marley.
  • Is starting to cry less with non-parents. 
  • Is pulling herself up to standing position regularly.
  • Climbed the equivalent of one stair-step with zero prompting from us.
  • Mimics us. Specifically the tapping of hands and fingers.
  • Is this close <---------->to clapping.
  • Is babbling all the time. We think her first word is going to be, "Yay!"
  • May possibly have waved goodbye for the first time this week.
  • Adores cheerios and yogurt drops.

And that my friends, was our week.

This little lady does not stop changing. It's actually insane. And, no kidding - just when we have a pattern down, just when we think we know her, she goes and changes it up on us. Seriously. Our wee one likes to keep us on our toes.

Ok, 'tis a short update this week. (I'm typing this on Sunday night and I'm starving.) Onward to the pics.

Here's the stair-climbing incident.
We have this weird 4 ft wide by 4 ft. deep cubby-thing in our house. We put Ferg's food and water bowls in there as soon as Lila became "mobile." It's not safe any more.

Love this face.

Thoroughly pleased with our farmers' market purchases.

Squash makes her smile.

Pulling herself up. On glass. (Cringe.)

 Lila and her Daddy.

Someone looking a little blonde.
(C. was blonde when he was a little one.)

Licking/eating one of Ferg's toys.
(Nope. It's not a battle worth fighting anymore.)

 Happy standing lady.

Sitting still. CRAZY hair. Straight on the right-side, curly on the left.

And here's the belly picture ya'll have been waiting for...

And, my second favorite picture of the week.

And my *favorite* picture of the week.

Have a good one!

Lila Loves Bob - head bobbin' to Bob


And my favorite video of the week...

    My daughter is going to be thrilled about the videos (currently obsessed with babies). Ms. Lila is a celebrity in our house ;)

  2. LOVE the 'tutu pics'!

    I can't believe how light her hair got! It seems like it happened REALLY fast!

  4. Aw, thanks everyone!

    Sassytimes - I'm so glad Sophia loves watching Lila videos! That's perfect that she's currently obsessed with them given that you have ELEVEN (!!!) days to go!!! OMG. OMG.

    Traci - thank you!!!

    AthenaBee - I know, right? Her hair got really light, really fast. Weird.

  5. That picture of her with her mouth wide open, where she looks like she's yelling in pure glee? Looks just like you, I think. :) I definitely see more of you in her the older she gets.

  6. oh my goodness, the tutu! AHH! she is just like a little bright and shining star.
