The Great Escape




Lilly is 9 months old. I can't believe it. She weighs 18lbs and is 29in long. She is jabbering up a storm and cruising along the furniture. She officially said "Bye Bye" this weekend to her Granny and is saying Momma and Dada. Her favorite food to eat is grapes! She has a fit if you only give her a few and will not eat any other food after you have presented the grapes to her. I guess she has a sweet tooth like her Mom! So, we try to limit the grapes. She loves to have you walk her around the room or house. She also is very much a Momma's girl. She doesn't let me out of her sight very often when it is just the two of us in the house. This month has also been our first month of sickness. She has had several colds and the doctors at Mercy know us by name. I didn't realize I would be at the doctor so much, but I kept worrying about ear infections. She was on the verge of one and she did have to go on her first medicine.

These pictures are of her trying to escape her crib. When she wakes up in the morning she is siting up in bed and is either crying for someone to save her from her prison or she is laughing and playing with her blanket. One morning she got stuck sitting in the corner and when I went in I could tell she just needed help laying back down. I layed her down and she went right back to sleep. This is a fun stage and she is learning so much.

Well, we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for our Lord Jesus Christ and His love for his children by dieing for us so that we could live with him for eternity! We are also thankful for such wonderful family and friends.

Hi Chandra! I stumbled on to your site from Ilena's. Lillian is beautiful. I think the last time I saw you you were barely pregnant. Congratulations!

She'll be out of that bed in no time! I'm too scared to give Cole grapes!!! I'm such a worry wart! I'm afraid he'll choke! Do you quarter them or real small pieces or what? Do you peel them?
