HapPy HalF BIrThDAy, LiLA GrACe!!!

Lila Grace marked the half-way point through her first year of life on the 22nd! Can't believe that our baby girl is 6 months old! She is just the most pleasant, easy going baby you'll ever meet! Everyone who spends time with her is amazed by how good Lila is. She has gone through a substantial growth spurt recently & is tackling lots of new milestones. Here are some of the most noteworthy...

~Has found her cute!
~Reaches out her arms when she wants to be picked up
~No longer being swaddled. She transitioned beautifully into a sleep sack
~Wearing size 2 Swaddlers, size 6 mo. clothes, & size 1 shoes
~LOVES her "Sophie" the Giraffe & has started sleeping with a small lovey
~Lila has lots to say...she's quite the babbler. Can make the "ma", "la" & "ba" sounds
~Prefers her thumb longer using a pacifier
~Has yet to acquire a taste for cereal. Will introduce veggies next week.
~Passes toys from one hand to another
~Drags objects toward herself
~Everything goes to her mouth!

To Infinity & Beyond...

Our sweet boy is turning 2!!! So in honor of his special day, we celebrated with a Toy Story themed birthday bash. Thankfully, the weather cooperated beautifully, so all of the miniature party-goers were able to enjoy some fun in the sun. I can't believe that 2 years ago, our precious Cy was born & our lives were changed forever...for the better! Cy Wesley, you are such a sweet-spirited, smart, funny, handsome & loving little man. You have brought more joy to our family than we could have possibly imagined! We are thankful daily that God chose us to be your parents & pray continually that he will help you grow healthy & strong, grant you many days, & most of all, give you a heart that desires a relationship with Him. We love you more than you could know! Happy 2nd Birthday, Cy!!!

Line 'em up...Cy is really into carrying around groups of similar toys right now (ie: animals, trucks, balls, blocks, puzzle pieces, etc), and loves to line them up in a perfectly straight line. Could he have a touch of OCD like Momma & Papa??? Highly likely.

Mother's Day Weekend...

We celebrated Mother's Day by enjoying a fabulous fish fry and belated Easter Egg Hunt, with my family, at Mamaw & Papaw's house. My grandmother's yard is absolutely gorgeous (as you can see) so of course, I took lots of photos of the little ones in the beautiful setting!

This is probably my favorite picture of our baby girl to date. This expression is so Lila...such a sweet, happy little lady!
