Lulu is 6 months

Lily turned 6 months last week and I can hardly believe it! She has been such a joyful addition to our family. The kids and I sang "Happy Half Birthday" to her and then she got her first taste of rice cereal. It is always fun to watch their facial expressions!
I call her Lulu, not sure why but I do. She is rolling all over the place, not sitting on her own yet mostly because I sit her up she sees something she wants and flops down on her tummy to roll and get it. She has been sleeping great until the past 3 nights, of course.
Wish I could stop time :)

Look at my cute bib :)

Christmas 2009

Better late than not at all right?
Of course we made our annual trek downtown on the train to see Santa, a tradition we look forward to every year!Letters to Santa :)Cute Hailey on Christmas EveJack loves to hold LilyLily with her 1st ever Christmas Eve present (new pj's)Looks like Santa came :)The kids posing for a picture, they were so good and waited until we asked them to (8am) to come downstairs. Lily was still asleep so she will have to wait until next year to come down the stairs first.Christmas morning sticky buns, Yummy!

After opening all the gifts the real craziness began as I needed to finish packing in time to leave for the airport at 1:30pm. It does not seem to matter how much I prepare ahead of time it always takes me until the very last minute. Off to Utah we went to visit family and friends. We we lucky and got to be there for Alex's mission farewell, and Adam's wedding. It was so fun to get to visit with so much family!!!
