Our little cupcake is 7 months old & is adding to her bag of tricks daily. The most notable of which, is that Lila Grace said her first word, "Mama", a couple days ago when she spotted me! She has become quite talkative...babbling away, and altering her tone & volume to make her wishes crystal clear. Lila is an observer, a listener...just taking it all in. Can't imagine our little family with out you, pretty girl. We love you so much! Here are a few more milestones Lila is checking off her list at present.
~Loves to play peek-a-boo. Puts her shirt, lovey, or burp cloth over her face, then pulls it back with a big grin.
~She's stuck in reverse! Lila hasn't quite mastered movement in a forward direction. She lunges toward objects from the sitting position, rocks on her hands and knees, then flattens out, raises her feet & scoots backwards. Very frustrating for her, but she'll figure it out soon enough. Mom's enjoying the last few weeks of limited mobility!
~Has sampled all the veggies & is a particular fan of peas & squash. Fruits are on the menu for next week.
~Can drink from a sippy cup. I think most the time she just chews on the spout, but she's getting the hang of it.
~She loves to be sung to....grins the entire time :)
~Is very interested in what people around her are eating.
~Lila Grace loves to be bounced, thrown in the air, & swung.
~Takes 2-3 naps a day, depending on the length of the first two naps. 30-45 minute cat naps in the late afternoon are becoming less frequent. Wakes between 7:30 & 8:00 am, takes a morning nap around 9:30-10 lasting 1 1/2-2 hrs., a PM nap starting at 1:30 or 2 for 1 hr., & occasionally a 30-45 minute late afternoon cat nap around 4:30. If she snags at late afternoon snooze, bedtime is at 8, otherwise, she's out by 7.
...and just for fun, Cy Wesley at 7 months :)

Joey Madison celebrated her 2nd birthday with a Minnie Mouse themed swim party. Unfortunately, Joey had to party with a cast on her arm, but that certainly didn't slow her down or put a damper on the festivities! Happy Birthday, Joey!!!
Pretty girl in her sunhat...

We've been hard at work with the move as of late, leaving me little time to blog about my precious lovebugs! So I've got some catching up to do & many fun pictures to post. Here are some shots of my two favorite little people from the past few weeks.
Both mesmerized by Baby Einstein's "Baby Noah" DVD...my kiddos are big fans of animals.
Our little loves...
Rubba-dub-dub...Cy loves "swimmin'" (aka: bathing) in Momma's big tub!
Lila Grace loves her jumperoo...
RAIN!!! Playing in the puddles after a recent & much needed Spring shower...
