Yesterday Lily turned two months old, goodness my daughter is growing up so quickly, it feels like just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital. My daughter has made some great moments for mommy to be proud of this past month.
Since Lily was born she had been able to hold her head up all by herself for quite a bit for her age, whenever she was being burped or if we just sat her up on her laps she would hold her head up herself for a long few moments, but these past couple of weeks shes able to hold her head higher while doing tummy time, and shes actually been moving her head around back and forth while having her head up in tummy time. It’s become harder to burp her over the shoulder because whenever one puts her on there shoulder she just holds her head up, but of course this mother is proud that her little one’s neck is quite strong!
Lily this past month has been an amazing walking partner also, she’s finally warmed up to using the baby carrier and I have been able to go grocery shopping twice in the past week with her, she loves looking around for a few minutes, breathing the fresh air and then she quietly drifts off to sleep.
This morning actually Lily sort of held up her bottle by herself for 5 seconds or so! She’s been holding onto the bottle for quite awhile but today Michael moved his hand for a second and let her hold onto it like she normally does and there she was holding it up for a seconds.
Lily received her first piece of mail this past month, one of her identification cards, I loved seeing her full name on a document, makes me love the name Michael and I chose for her even more just knowing that it looks so beautiful together.
Lily has been making noises in an attempt to talk, she’s mimicking the movements me and Michael’s mouths make when were talking to her and she’s making noises all the time, she’s going to be quite the non stop talker one’s shes older.
This past month has been a really great one, and I can’t wait to watch this next month and see the new things she accomplishes.
