Happy 4 months to this beauty. My goodness.. Could she be any cuter? This last month there hasn't been a lot going on.. Chicago had a freezing week and then it snowed.. then it got warm.. then it snowed.. And now it's been nicer again. We have spent most of our time indoors, watching mom work out to Insanity dvds or at the gym (til we got kicked out because Lydia is younger than 18.. poop). I could just stare at her all day.. and sometimes that is exactly what I do.
She loves sitting up and will often get really excited and push herself over with her feet.
She loves bath time these days.. It gets more and more fun to bath her and we get everywhere more and more messy. She loves kicking and splashing the water. (You can tell she splashed her eyes a bit too much in these pics because they are all red ha)
Her rolls on her thighs!!!
This view.. getting this girl from her naps as she just plays. I love the sound of her waking up.
I love these two.. So much. They make my world go round and round! And then one of my favorite pictures of all time.. if I could explain this girl's personality in one picture only.. I would choose below.. Delight, pure delight.When she gets burped.. below is her face almost always ha.One thing that people always seem to comment on is Lydia's eyes. She has huge bright eyes and they seem to make her look more alert. She is our gorgeous blue-eyes babe! This girl has the BEST expressions. She is so animated.
Winter is usually a hard time of year because we get stuck inside because it is too cold to do much outside. But this year I haven't minded it because I have this baby to enjoy it with. Brian and I are always trying to invent new ways to make her laugh and giggle. She loves when we lay on our backs and put her on our legs superman style. She makes the best "oooo" sound like she is doing in the above picture.
A typical day for me is when this girl gets up around 8. We eat and work out and put her down around 10. She sleeps til 12:30 while I clean, paint, sew, or whatever. Then she is up and we will go to the gym or to our neighbor's house Kelsey and her 8 month old Lincoln and chill.. then it is back for shorter naps from 2:30-3:30 and we make dinner in between for dad (Lydia loves making dinner because mom lets her try new flavors) then it's back for a 3rd nap from 5-6 and then bedtime at 7:30. It is a very nice and chill schedule.
