Working on Walking

It’s already that time were our baby girl is learning to walk. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that she was learning to crawl! So far Lily has no issues standing up, can walk along the couch or other object and has taken a few steps on her own. And she’s loving it. It’s […]

First time in a hotel and in a swimming pool.

Lily is six months old today. Where’s the cake?

Wow, six months have gone by in a flash. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital and not sure what we were doing. Lily has learned so much in six months.
