Happy Birthday to My Baby

One year ago right now I was probably sitting on that stupid birthing ball glaring at Mike and threatening to throw my pitocin machine at him. Yep, that's right, my little bug turned 1 today!

It hardly seems possible that she was once so tiny as her pictures prove she was. She's such a big girl now. For about the last 3 weeks Lily has consistently been sleeping through the night. She'll wake up and give a short cry sometimes in the middle of the night, but she always goes right back to sleep. I think having a routine with her has definitely helped. Dinner, play times, jammies, play time, rocking and pass out.

When Lily isn't sleeping she is one energetic little girl! Holy cow! I don't think I've ever met a baby that has as much get up and go as she does. She's cruising around on anything she can pull up on now. She'll stand on her own on occasion, but usually something catches her eye and she'll either cruise over to get it or she'll plop on her rear (she loves to do this) and will speed racer crawl over to whatever she wants. Speak of crawling, my baby girl crawls on her hands and knees! She's been doing it for a while - ever since she learned that she can go much faster on her hands and knees than on her belly like a zombie.

I'm in a bit of a hurry so I can't spend too much time updating right now. I'm also getting a cold (congestion and sore throat) so I don't feel much like updating. In a short summary, life is decent, my graduate classes are kicking my tail feathers, my baby isn't a baby anymore and her Birthday Part will be on September 13th if anyone is interested.

Also, on a less than happy note, please keep our friends K and J and their family in your thoughts. They lost one of their 5 month old twins Monday morning. We will be heading over tonight for the funeral tomorrow.
