New milestone....

Lily is still practicing "walking." I have been noticing that her balance isn't real good...and her legs seem a bit stiff. :/ I am going to continue to watch her.. Early Intervention should be coming out again soon to evaluate and if she sees her Dr. before then I'm going to mention it. It could be nothing... Like I said before, I do not want to miss anything! She will be 14 months old on Monday! Wow... she is a "big girl."

Onto her newest milestones and the funny things she is doing... She is real good at taking objects out of containers and today for the very first time, she put her "cookie" in the milk jug! Yeah!!! She did it over and over... it was very sweet. When she wakes in the morning or from a nap she will have her binkie in her mouth. I pick her up and ask her, "Do you need that binkie?" She then pulls the binkie out of her mouth and throws it in the crib! This morning I could have sworn she said "big girl" after she did this.

So.... now onto the funny and kind of bizarre. LOL

She has done this several times now. She will lift my shirt and start to poke my belly button.. then she puts the same finger into her mouth.. she will do it over and over again... (I'm grateful that I keep it so yesterday, she shared my belly button with me... she kept putting her finger in my belly button then put her finger in my mouth. ???? I wonder what she thinks a belly button is???? LOL She had me laughing so hard! She is such a joy!

Here is a photo of sisterly love..

Well, last week was indeed eventful. I am thankful for the snow that we had b/c it put daddy behind in work and in turn I was unable to go to work at night. (That is not what I am thankful for) Ms. Lily has had a terrible cold! Fever, runny nose, sneezing, and a bad.. bad.. cough! Poor Lil-Lil! You see, the snow enabled me to be able to be home with her in the evenings. Daddy and I agreed that it may have been to much for only one of us to handle. Ever since, she has started waking about 10 pm to 10:30 pm... each night.. screaming crying... when I go into her, she is standing. I pick her up and rock her for just a few minutes and she is back asleep... ???? I am hopeful that this doesn't turn into a new "normal." I'm wondering if she is experiencing some separation anxiety? I suppose time will tell.

On top of her cold, I think that I see her 5th tooth coming... and she is going through another developmental change. She is playing with her toys differently again and.... has just started to be REALLY interested in walking. (She had not walked with her baby walker since I posted that She has been pushing it all over the house, going through the kitchen cabinets and etc... Oh boy.... I LOVE her.. she is SO curious! Praise God... however, I do look forward to nap time some days. :)

One of my best friends daughters (I don't feel old enough to have a best friend that has a daughter that is 22! hehe..) came out with her family yesterday and took some AMAZING photos of Lillian. She was able to grab one photo of both girls. Victoria was on her way out the door and paused long enough to take ONE photo with her sister. I was pleased to see that it turned out nicely! :D

Here is a link to the set that she has posted on her blog:
