Blog Hiatus

I know, I know...time has gotten away from me yet again.  We have had a busy few weeks.  Unfortunately, I don't think things will slow down until after July 4, sigh.  BUT I am going to make a conscious effort to stay on top of blogging...after all, I started this for sweet baby Lilly!


This past weekend was my little sister's bachelorette party.  We had a fabulous girls weekend at the beach.  More updates to come in a later post, but this was Lilly's excited face about all of the festivities:
I'll do a full post on the weekend later, but Lilly and I had so much fun...and I realized how old I am.  :-)  L was SUCH a good girl - ate well, slept well, and was happy the whole time.  We got to test out the GoCrib for the first time.  I am planning to do a product review with full details, but for now I will say that we LOVED it and Lilly slept like a champ in it.


In other miscellaneous news, I have been thinking for about two weeks now that Lilly may start to get mobile on us.  They say babies typically roll from front to back first.  I  knew this wouldn't be the case with Lilly, because she's nosey and only likes tummy time if she's propped up on her Boppy pillow so she can see everything (takes after her Great Grandma Lil on that one for sure!).  For the past two weeks, she's flipped herself all the way around and rolled up on her side almost every time she's been on her play mat, like so:  
Most of the time, her side was as far as she would get - a lot of times, in fact, she'd be annoyed and want us to help her get back to her back and under the mirror on her playmat (Or at least where she can see the TV - my child LOVES the tv.  Parenting fail?  Maybe.).  Over the weekend, there were quite a few instances where she got almost all the way over except she just couldn't get the hang of getting that bottom arm out from underneath herself.  Yesterday, when we got home, she finally rolled over all on her own.  She was surprised and looked around for a few minutes before remembering that she only likes tummy time when she's propped up - it was hilarious.  I managed to get it on video, which I'll post as soon as I can get it off of Dan's phone.  Since then, she hasn't done it again but has come close quite a few times.  My Mom keeps telling me I should be thankful, because once she's mobile we'll be in trouble!  I fear she may be right.


I guess the trip wore my girls out, because they were both tired and (sort of) snuggly when we got home:


Just wanted to write a quick update to let all of our friends and family know that we're still alive!  Lots to come this week, including L's 4-month (!!!) update, aforementioned GoCrib review, sleep stuff, and a belated anniversary post among other things, so stay tuned!  And vote while you're at it.  :-)


Hope your week got off to a great start!  If not, this should brighten it:
Cutest kitchen helper ever?  I think so.
