The bed I love

Lily is 25 weeks old - the calendar proclaims 6 months this next Monday.  Either way, Lily is fast outgrowing her little bassinet bed.  She has spent a majority of the past six months at the foot of our bed.  Robb and I found it funny that she is so big that she can sit up in her bassinet...heehee.  She is ready for the crib and will be transitioning into it this week.  Bye-bye little bassinet!  You have been a great place to rest my little head. (says Lily)

Sugar and spice and everything nice

First things first - I have to fess up.  I have fallen behind in updates from the bear and bee.  It's that time of year; where the calendar has very few open days and the hustle and bustle causes the days to fly by.  Hold on folks.  I have a lot of updating to do.  I will do my best to space them out over the  next few days.  Enjoy.

If ever there was a doubt as to whether Lily is a girly baby, well let the following photos help you make up your mind.  Actually ... maybe it's more that mom loves dressing Lily in girly girl get-up (wink).
 All smiles


 All played out

 Lily's ready to party!

Pretty in PINK ... and black.  Outfit courtesy of DJ and Heidi.  Lily is all ready for Heidi's 40th birthday bash!!  She proceeded to eat/suck on her bows the entire night.

Park time

Anyone who knows me well, knows how much I LOVE Wash Park ... and love it even more in the fall!  Although it's a trek to drive in just for a walk, it's worth the happiness that comes from seeing the big, beautiful trees with their autumn colors, the pond with it's water fowl and the happy outdoor folk that fill the paths!!

Me and the babes pose by a beautiful golden tree.

Woo-hoo!  Lily loves the brisk fall air!

"Dad, what are those birds doing?  Are they taking a bath?  Those funny little guys."

Our good friends, Larry and Erin, recently welcomed little Lawrence Jacob.  Another buddy for Lily!  He is a little pumpkin and we couldn't wait to go see him!!  Lily is only 22 weeks and already I have forgotten how small she was.  I thought Jake was micro and he weighed in over 2 lbs heavier than Lily...time does amazing things!

 Is it possible that I already forgot how to hold a new baby?? ;-)

...Jake is a handsome little guy!

Our house; in the middle of the fall

Before the final leaves hit the ground, we took time on the back deck to bid the sunny skies and warm air farewell. 

 Daddy and his little Lily bee.  What are you digging for Lily??

Lily cracks a smile - tough to get all parties smiling at the same time.

Lily finds a new friend in a sock

Lily, meet sock monkey.  Sock monkey has been a favorite toy of children for generations.  This conventional toy will grace the memories that are built in this house and well...let the journey begin!

"Now listen here, monkey boy - I am the baby in this house and you have to do what I say and play with me."

"Ok, Ok.  I can learn to let you be the boss sometimes too...."

"I can tell - we're going to be the best of buds.  Bunny will be coming along on our adventures too...just so you know."
