I have been absent from the blog for a while now!! We have been really busy lately, and on our less busy days, Lily keeps be busy chasing her around as she gets into everything. :)
Alec finished spring term with awesome grades and is not a few weeks into summer term. He works 25 - 30 hours per week on top of that and watches Lily while I'm at work. I only work 6 - 10 hours each week. It's not much, but it's a little bit of extra income. We recently baby-proofed/redecorated the living room which took over our lives and our apartment for a couple of weeks, but it is done now and I love it (more info and pics to come)!
Lily is now 11 months old!! Here's a list of what she's been up to:
She quit the army crawl a while ago and now crawls super fast.
She can walk as long as at least one of her hands is holding onto someone/something.
She can stand on her own but only when she's not aware that she's doing it.
She loves to give kisses (which are more like full on attacks).
She loves playing peek-a-boo.
She loves talking on the phone and gets excited when she sees us talking on one.
She LOVES string cheese and otter pops.
Her hair is so long that it almost looks like she has a bob haircut.
She figured out how to take the baby-proof outlet covers out of the outlets...
She loves to slide on the kitchen floor when she's in her jammies.
She loves to show me things she finds on the floor...
She loves it when Daddy comes home.
She loves to smile and laugh.
She is just so wonderful and she is more and more fun every day! Here's a picture to leave you with from our trip to Sacramento for Katie's wedding (more on that later) !
