8 months old

My sweet baby is 8 months old today.

Lily is so good at sitting up! She has a solid base and she can sit for a long time!

She also has 2 teeth now!

Lily loves to kick her legs when she is happy or excited. She is very curious about everything around her and likes to learn new things. She makes this adorable face when she’s concentrating on something new:

She loves to “read” her books and play with her toys. This little darling is almost crawling. She pushes up to all fours everyday and rocks back and forth. I think it’s the cutest thing ever.

Lily is her Daddy’s princess and her Mommy’s angel. We love her so much. Every night when we check on her cute sleeping face, we always feel so blessed to have her.

And lastly, here is a side-by-side picture of me, Lily and Brett as babies. We’re all within a month of each other’s ages.

Who do you think she looks like? I think she looks so much like the both of is. I see things that look just like Brett and other things that look just like me. I love her so much. I can’t believe 8 months have gone by already. They have been the hardest, sweetest, most amazing, difficult but absolutely the best 8 months of my life.

Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend as a family. Brett “worked from home” on Friday which meant we all went for a walk to the local feed store to look at the baby chicks. Lily loved to watch them all scurrying around looking fluffy and adorable. On Saturday, we went to an Easter egg hunt that a family at church hosted. We had such a fun time!

Easter Sunday was so much fun! When Lily woke up from her morning nap, we got her dressed in her Easter dress and started the photoshoot! Lily was a happy baby and loved getting an Easter basket.

It was a lovely Easter, but Lily wasn’t very happy after church. She was tired, but wouldn’t sleep.

haha! obviously, not feeling very happy!
