Lately Lily has been practicing doing push ups. She can do several in a row when attempting to crawl and can also hold the plank position for nearly a minute when she is motivated. She is trying hard to learn how to crawl and even managed to make it a whole foot in the forward direction today.
Lily is eating a lot these days. She LOVES food just as much as her sister does. She'll eat baby food in any form but especially likes it when she gets to munch on graham crackers or bread. Now whenever we walk in the room holding food or shaking up her bottle, she starts to grunt and pant really fast and pump her arms up and down! What can I say, these girls are just like their mom!
Another development over the last month is that Lily has learned to love her big sister. She thinks Brooklyn is hilarious even when Brooklyn rides her like a pony (which is one of her favorite things to do when Lily is trying to crawl). The two of them spend a lot of time together playing on the living room floor with stuffed animals and pretty necklaces. When we go to work during the week, Brooklyn is VERY protective over her little sister and Lily really appreciates it since all the other kids are constantly trying to smother her. Its funny because she gets upset when the other kids lay on her or get in her face, but when Brooklyn does it she just smiles and occasionally gives Brooklyn a loving smack to the head.
Another fun thing Lily is doing is experimenting with sounds. Her newest discovery... babo babo babo. Here is a little video of her testing out these new noises.
Lily has also begun to drool uncontrollably, which kind of bites for us because she already spits up uncontrollably, and lets just say our carpets could REALLY use a good shampoo! Here she is attempting to crawl and foaming at the mouth simultaneously.
And just for fun...Everyone keeps telling me how Lily looks exactly like Brooklyn, and while they do indeed look similar, I find them to be quite unique in appearance. Here they both are at the same ages. Enjoy!
Lily is going to her 6 month checkup tomorrow so I will post her stats and some more pictures later this week.
