Wiggle Worm

Lily likes to move, she likes to wiggle, she's always in motion. The only time I can really see that she's still is when she's sleeping, and that's because she's wrapped up like a burrito. Well, yesterday morning that all changed in my mind. I know that she kicks her legs when she's waking up because her blanket is often kicked off when I go in to get her in the mornings. However, I'm pretty sure she's getting to the stage where I won't be able to just lay her anywhere and know she'll stay put. Exhibit A:

Now, this may just look like a normal picture to you, but look closely...notice that the blanket is at the top of her head. That's because when I put her in bed, she was facing the opposite way! She did a complete 180 degree turn in her sleep!!! I couldn't believe it when I went in to check on her...everyday she does something to surprise me! :)

Daddy's Girl

At three months old, Lily's personality is starting to really show! She's a pretty mellow baby but can be super stubborn if she wants to be. She loves people and prefers them to toys. She'll watch them for much longer than she'll focus on objects. A few weeks ago, I was watching Kayson, my cousin Katie's son, while she and her hubby went to the U of U game. Lily just wanted to watch Kayson play with his toys (when she wasn't sleeping). She was very content to watch him :) She likes to sit up, and she kicks her legs like crazy! We can get her to laugh a little, but mostly she just graces us with huge, beautiful smiles. I'll never get tired of those beautiful smiles!! She has spent some time in her Johnny Jump Up and tolerates it, but I'm sure she'll like it more when she actually bounces it :) But most of all, Lily LOVES her daddy...she loves to hear him talk...she coos at him more than at me...he can make her laugh much easier than I can. Every time she realizes he's around, she stops whatever she's doing (even if she's in the middle of eating) to look at Daddy. It is so wonderful to see how much she loves him. Faiver is a great father, and I can see a beautiful relationship between them!

Lily is such a happy baby!! We are so lucky to have such a wonderful little princess in our house. This is how she looks in the morning when I come in to get her....

Well, usually she's still all the way inside her SwaddleMe, but you get the picture. I love her smiles and can't wait to hear her laugh!! I hope it comes soon :)
