You are NINE months old, now! UNBELIEVABLE. Here's what you've been up to this month...
you started doing this while we were at the beach, and have continued it ever since. Now you love when Chaucer joins in on the fun!
I have started telling you, "no" this month. For the most part you've done well, but sometimes you think we are playing a game. Here's the usual response I get when I tell you, "no"! Really, Lilly? How am I supposed to keep a straight face?
Those eyes just melt my heart :)
You are crawling everywhere, now. You can also bring yourself from a belly-lying position to a sitting position. It's a lot of work, and you grunt (and toot) a lot, but when you finally sit up, you are ecstatic :)
Having breakfast with Sir...
You started table food this month, and so far, you haven't been much of a fan. I have noticed in the last few days that you are eating a little more though, so I'm as worried as I was! I DO NOT want you to be a picky eater like Daddy :) You still eat baby food, milk, diluted juice, puffs, and yogurt melts like crazy!!
You also celebrated your first Thanksgiving! You were so sweet, and you really enjoyed going to everybody's house! I have been really impressed with how you will let anyone hold you and love on you. You really are laid back like your Daddy!
I can't wait until you are old enough to take part in the annual Day After Thanksgiving Shopping Spree Where You Just May Wet Your Pants Because You're Laughing So Hard with Aunt Cindy, Aunt Pam, Kelli, Mommy, Meme, and Granny
I have LOVED every bit of this month, Lilly. This may be my favorite stage with you so far. I miss the days when you wore those soft, sweet gowns and we spent all hours of the night eating, snuggling, and talking, but watching your little personality bloom recently has been the greatest joy to my life. You will never know how many times you've made Daddy and me laugh. You smile constantly, laugh out loud, say "mama", "dada", and "bye bye" constantly, and we wouldn't have it any other way!
