Here are some pictures I took of 5 month old lily girl. At her last appointment she weighed almost 15 lbs. She can't stand being on her stomach and has learned how to roll over on to her back. She can almost sit up by herself. She been blowing bubbles and talking a lot, well more like screaming. She loves watching Grizzly and laughs hysterically when he shakes or wags his tail. Grizzly is great with her and lets her grab his ears and nose and doesn't even flinch. Squirrel is still the diva dog and will just walk away if Lily tries to touch her. We're still working on getting her to sleep through the night. Right now she sleeps from about 8 pm - 2 am then until 6 am - it's definitley better than the days of waking up every 2 hours to feed her. We couldn't be happier with her and love watching her grow and develop. It's truly amazing!
We don't have any pictures of the 3 of us so we signed up for a free photo session at one of the yoga studios here in DC. They didn't turn out so good but what do you expect, they were free.
Here's a picture of the playdate Lily had last weekend. This was our first time meeting with this group and Lily had a fabulous time. She's so social and loves being around people. She's not smiling in the picture but during the entire playdate she was laughing and smiling at everyone. Starting from the left - Lily, 4.5 months, Kaelin-6 months, Charlotte-7 months, Jack-8 months, Zoe-8 months.
For our first night out without the baby, we went to the Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark concert at the 9:30 club. It was a fun time and totally brought me back to the 80’s. I was really impressed that they still had good dance moves – I mean, they are after all, in their 50’s! The crowd was random with old people, some who brought their kids and lots of Asians. Kinda weird but we had a great time with our friends Ray, Mary and Jason. Our friends Kelly and Matt babysat for us and said the baby did pretty well. I guess that means we should start going out more!
