FINALLY....She laughed!!!!!

Well, I just had to share. Lily has finally decided to share with the world what she thinks is funny. This past weekend Lily laughed for the first time. She has been smiling a lot since she was about 2 months old, but she finally decided to add noise to her smile. I LOVED every second of it. I will mention that she will only laugh when she wants to no matter how hard I try to entice her to laugh. Lily is also working really hard on sitting up unassisted. She is still a little wobbly, but she definitely has the "tripod" form that she will need to be steady. She has been a great stander since she was about 2 months old. She loves to stand on her legs and look around. She really only needs support for balance. The pictures below of her standing are good examples of how she loves to stand. But I promise she is not allowed to walk until she is ummmm 13 years old.

I am adding some more pictures since everyone seems to enjoy them so much.
4th month old pics! 1/5/08
Look mom I am sitting
Grammy got me this exersaucer and I am loving it....

Look at me standing unassisted (Daddy is behind me though just in case)
This is my fun toy box. It is actually an ottoman that Nana got us to hide the THOUSANDS of toys I got for Christmas.
Octotunes is one of my favorite toys (well it's actually mommy's favorite toy, she plays with it more than I do).

Happy New Year!! 2008

Well, it's 2008 already! Lily will be 4 months old in a couple of days. Christmas and New Years around our house was great. We had a really good time with friends and family. We definitely enjoyed the break with Josh home. We of course did lots of shopping and just hanging out with Lily. Josh had to start back to teaching today.....I don't think he was too excited to go back, especially with all the bonding time he got with Lily over the break. Lily is working on hard on rolling over from back to tummy. She is really close but not quite there. Her tummy to back roll though is superb! Lily now is the proud owner of LOTS of toys. Which is a good thing because she is a baby that needs TONS of stimulation. I hope you have had a wonderful New Year and Christmas. I will continue you to update you with more about Lily. Have a great January!! Check out these pictures taken during December.

Lily's first wedding. Friends of ours (Steven and Swati) got married on Dec 30th. Lily made her appearance at the reception.
