Lila, oh sweet Lila. Her cheeks melt me into a little mommy puddle and her big brown eyes turn me to mush. I can't imagine life without her. She's amazing!
Things to remember forever in her time capsule this month:
-Lila had her first Thanksgiving this month and also had a ton of fun getting in the Christmas spirit with her big sis. I'll just show you a bunch of pics in the place of words here :)
-Lila is cruising along with motor skill development. She has almost mastered the ability to push herself up to a sitting position so we had to lower her crib a bit more. We will often turn on the monitor to find her on her hands and knees rocking back and forth like she is about to take off! She loves to stand up while holding on to someone or something and is making a great effort to crawl. We think she will be mobile in the next month or two.
-We talked about Ducky last month...he did not come back to the bath tub. That's ok though. She's been having tons of fun playing with Charlotte and didn't need that scary old ducky after all.
-Lila is starting to babble now after a long, quiet hiatus. She says 'bababababababa' in the cutest sweetest little voice. She loves to laugh at her sister or when we play peek-a-boo.
-She got a new tooth for Christmas and woke Mommy & Daddy up to let us know about it on Christmas Eve. Other than that though, she is *pretty much* back to her old self, being a great sleeper.
-Lila still has a healthy dose of stranger danger. She's a laid back little chica for us, but she really doesn't love being held by anyone else. More cuddles for us ;-)
-Her hair is getting much fuller and longer...it won't be long before she needs a trim! It doesn't stick up anymore in the front, which makes me sad, but it is still soft, and fine, and downy which makes me feel like the baby chick hasn't quite left her system just yet.
-This face. She does this face all the time where she chews on her top lip and sticks out her bottom one. Resting Lila face.
We just love this little lady to pieces! Hope you all had an amazing Christmas and a Happy New Year!
