8 Months

Today Lilly is 250 days old! (8 months and 5 days)
She is getting to be a very talkative little girl! no real words yet. She loves to babble dada, baba, but not mama! That's okay I know it will come soon! Not much has changed from the last blog, but I have had to put away some of her old clothes she just grew out of! She is now fitting great into the 6-9 months, and some 6-12 month outfits! She hasn't been weighted lately but I'm sure she is just over 17 lbs! She has to triple her birth weight (6 lbs, 6oz) by one year. I think she can do it! She has to be one year and 20 lbs to be able to be front facing in the car. She will be a happier rider when that happens because she will be able to see what is going on.

I have been back to school for over a week now so Lillyann gets to spend 3 days a week with her Great Grandma Kupka. Lillyann loves to go over there, I think Great Grandma loves to have Lilly there too. Lilly loves to get up close to Buster,(Grandpa's new pug) but she does not like it when he barks!

Lillyann usually gets to see Madison on Wed. When Grandma picks her up from daycare. Lillyann likes to play with Madison, now that Lilly is on the move, she can follow her around!

Happy New Year

We had a Merry Christmas, How about you? This is how ours went...
We started off the holiday at Grandma Debs house where she opened a few presents with Great Aunt DeDe. The boys helped her get her toys out of the boxes and showed her how to play with them. Then we had to leave to get to Great Grandma and Grandpas where many people were waiting to see her. Great Aunt Angie couldn't wait to hold her. Great Aunt Denise had drawn her name for the gift exchange and got her a leap pad book reader which she loves to listen too. We then went back to Grandma Debs and opened more presents. Lillyann got lots of books and a soft blanket that Grandma Deb made. While we were opening presents Santa and Mrs. Clause came in and surprised us with gifts and candy canes! Taylor was so surprise and excited to see Santa.
The next morning we were off to Grandpa and Grandmas house where we opened presents with Matthew, Rachel, Madison, and Grandpa and Grandma. Lilly and Maddie both got a tickle me Elmo which Lilly loves, she laughs at him when he is rolling around and laughing. Then we went over to Great Grandma Baulers for lunch and to open presents. Lillyann got bath toys and lots of books!
Our house is now full of toys! Thank you everyone for all the great gifts!
