My Big Girl

Lilly has been working on sitting up for a few weeks now, but hasn't been able to master doing so for more than a few seconds at a time...until this week.  I guess it was actually at the end of last week, when all of a sudden she just got better at it, and she has continued to improve every day.  I now feel comfortable enough to walk away for short periods of time and leave her sitting up, playing with her toys.  Although, I will say that she has also somehow mastered turning onto her stomach mid-fall when she tips over, so that she doesn't hit her head.  When did my little baby turn into a big girl?




I think that once Lilly truly gets the hang of sitting, she'll want to play like that all of the time.  Currently, she is OK sitting up but is just as happy laying down (she loves to roll all over the place, my little roly poly, and prefers her stomach to her back for the most part).  I guess I should cherish that while it's still happening, yes?  Sitting up like a big girl means we're one step closer to being into everything (she has enough of Daddy's personality already that I know we are in for it!).  I was telling Steph earlier, on one hand I am so excited and happy that she is growing up, learning and changing (by the minute it seems!) before my eyes.  On the other hand, part of me is sad that she's not my little baby anymore.  I guess that's what being a parent is all about, though, yes?





Happy Friday, and thanks to Great Uncle Eddie for Lilly's Kings Point onesie!
