Green Icey Pop

A few days ago, Blake gave Lilli her first taste of an icey pop. She absolutely loved it. She even got mad and threw a fit when he took it away. I think that she liked it so much because it felt good on her gums. She is finally getting big enough that we can let her taste what we are eating.

Movie Night...

A few weeks ago we went to "movies in the park" and had a blast. The Smiths (some friends of ours) went with us!!! I was so glad to have another couple there. They played "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and it was awesome. To me, it is so much more fun if they show old movies at these sort of things. I really thought that it was going to be a rough night, seeing as how we were going to be outside and the movie didn't start until about an hour and a half past Lilli's bedtime, but it really wasn't bad!!! There was a nice breeze so it wasn't too hot, and Lilli did AWESOME. She watched the movie a while, then fell asleep, then woke back up and watched the movie again, and finally went back to sleep for the night. After the movie, we all grabbed some food and came back to our house to hang out. Even though it was a late night, it was a very fun experience, and I can't wait to go in a couple of weeks to see "The Wizard of Oz"!!!

Our Family...

Our friends Tabitha and Heath Smith...

Pearly Whites

Well everyone...the teeth finally have started coming in!!! Lilli has been teething since she was 3 months old and a few weeks ago, I noticed one of her front teeth on the bottom was starting to come in!!! I told Blake this and he said he didn't believe me. He kept saying "I don't see it" or "I don't feel it." And then a few days later, he was sitting in the living room, playing with Lilli and she bit him!!! lol It was so funny. Now Lilli has both of her front teeth on the bottom and about 4 more coming in on the top. Oh the joys of a teething 6 month old...

The first 4th of July...

Yesterday was Lilli's first 4th of July. We really didn't do too much b/c Lilli has been trying to get over a stomach virus (which she was nice enough to give to me, so I have been sick for the last 4 days ugh..) All we did was sit around in our pj's and have family time. When fireworks came on t.v., we watched for a little while. Then we went outside just to sit and wait for it to get dark. We saw a few fireworks but the trees blocked most of our view. We were going to go to the big fireworks display on post but I still didn't feel all that great and Lilli was really fussy because it was about 2 hours past her bedtime. I'm really glad we ended up just staying at home. I think it was a great 4th of July, even though we didn't do a lot. It was great just spending time as a family.

In the big bath tub...

On Father's Day weekend, Blake, Lilli, and I went to a friends house in Dallas to just "get away" from Killeen. While we were there, Blake and I decided to take Lilli in the pool for the first time. She absolutely loved it!!! She thought it was a huge bath tub or something. The only thing she didn't like, besides getting out, was the sun shining in her face. Luckily there was some shade, so that is where we hung out most of the time. She was so cute. Lilli just loved it when one of us would spin her around and let her feet hang back away from her, like she was flying. When we would stop, she would start kicking, trying to make us do it again, but she kinda looked like she was swimming. I definitely think she is a water baby. I'm so glad she likes to swim.

Last weekend we were all invited to a bar-b-que. I had to run to Walmart to get a few things that I had to take. While I was there, I found the cutest little sunglasses for Lilli. As you can see, they didn't fit her very well, but they were still adorable! She kept them one the whole time we were in the car, and by the time we got to the cook out, she had fallen asleep and the glasses were down around her mouth. I think, for the most part, she really liked them!!!

All tuckered out

A few days ago Lilli did the cutest thing. She was playing on her play may (which is her favorite thing to do) and it was getting pretty close to her nap time. I was trying to clean the house, do laundry, etc. to get the house together. When I was on my way to the bedroom to get another load of clothes, I just happened to glance over the couch and Lilli was dead asleep on her mat. She didn't even fuss before she went to sleep. She must have really wore herself out to just roll over and go to sleep like she did. She was so cute though!!! I didn't even move her to her bed, I just let her sleep right where she was. She slept for about an hour too which was kinda long for her. It was so cute!!!!
