Lemme Introduce Myself
My name is Lillian. I'm 8 months old right now. Though, I'm pretty small so I think I may look young for my age. I was born into a pretty crazy family. Apparently, these are my parents.
Like I said, CRAZY family!
But it's really fun. There is always someone to play with. My sister and brother have TONS of toys that I like to try and eat. I like it when they play with me. They pretend I'm their baby and put me in really funny places sometimes. I've been crawling for a while now. But I just figured out that it takes me places. My favorite thing to do is crawl up the one little stair that is in our den. Then I make my way to the bathroom where I like to pull over the trash can and pull up on the stool. I also like to crawl into the kitchen. There is always this bowl of water sitting on the ground in the corner. I love to splash in it but every time I make my way over there, my mom puts it on the table. Though every once in a while I manage to get a few splashes in.
Lately, I find myself standing all by myself. Then, when I realize I'm not holding on, I panic and sit down. Who knows. Everyone seems to look at me and get real excited when I do that. ?!?!?!
I can also clap and wave. I say 'ma ma' and the other day decided to give in to Dad and say 'da da'. I think it made his day.
Right now I sleep all over the house. It's not too bad. But I think my mom really wants me to sleep with my big sister. Though the last 2 mornings, I've woken up with one of them in my bed. It okay, they sing to me. But I'm not sure how happy mommy is when they do that. Especially since it's before she's had her coffee.
It's kinda funny being the baby of the family. Although I don't really know any different. Sometimes it's hard to get somebody's attention. I think my dad called me "pint size but louder than a tornado siren" the other day. Well, if they'd just listen to me the first time, I wouldn't have to go up that many octaves. I guess the world doesn't revolve around me.
My mommy's milk is still my favorite. But I also really like sweet potatoes and applesauce. Ritz crackers and graham crackers aren't too shabby either. I'm kinda tired of cheerios. But hey, I still have no teeth so I think my options are limited.
I've been enjoying church lately. My favorite is to crawl around, take the other babies' name tags off, and eat them. Then I take a cat nap in the swing. I love swinging. Especially outside.
Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and say hey! Tell all my baby friends hello!! :-)
