So Lilly has started eating food! She prefers people food from the table but she's doing ok with baby food, though its touch and go...One meal she'll almost finish a jar of squash (her favorite) and the next she reacts like I'm trying to feed her cotton balls.
We're definitely making progress though which is awesome. I can see the future and it no longer includes an image of Lilly going off to college drinking a bottle.
Another development this week is Lilly's discovery of her tongue. I actually googled "my 8th month old sticks out her tongue a lot" because I was kind of concerned...but apparently its a common stage. When her pacifier isn't in then she has her tongue hanging out. Michael Jordan always played with his tongue out... so the way I see it is she is destined for greatness.
Its so exciting to see her developing and learning and she's such a great kid. This week John and I were basically outside all week working on the yard. I also cleaned, re-decorated, and stained the porch (pictures to come later) and she would just sit in her pack-n-play for about an hour each day playing quietly. We sure are blessed!
