J had his last day of preschool this past week. He has grown physically and mentally so much this year! He his my little buddy. Seriously, I wish everyone could meet Jackson. He loves people, making you laugh by telling jokes from his joke book, and has the biggest heart. Sometimes I forget he’s only 4 because he’s so willing to help all the time and takes on a lot of responsibility. Love my bubba!
helping feed lily while I workout
I know I say this every month, but THIS is my favorite stage!
Lily interacts with all of us and knows who we are. She says a lot of little things and mostly mimics. The other night while we were driving we were all saying her name and she copied us haha
Her top 2 teeth are coming in and taking their sweet and painful time. Poor girl!
playing in the toy room with J(she’s no longer happy in the family room with mom, ha)
Itsy Bitys Spider(she does her version of the spider with her hands), Patty Cake, and if you say, “How big is Lily?” “Sooo big!” she reaches her hands way over her head.
She full on crawls, can get from laying down to sitting up, and tries to stand up using furniture.
Jackson likes to carry her around even though I tell him not to. I have to admit it’s pretty adorable. His(and hers) fav thing to do is put her in the laundry basket and push her all over the house. He tells her stories, entertains her, and LOVES to put bows in her hair!
She still continues to eat anything we give her. She eats whatever we’re eating but has a few dislikes; strawberry flavored things(she likes strawberries though) and still doesn’t love sweet potatoes. She really isn’t picky. She loves to slime her hair after she eats(in this pic she is mad I’m not getting her out right away, but you can see her slimed hair).
One thing I don’t want to forget about this stage is when she’s playing on the floor she will take little breaks, come find me, and lay her head on my lap. It’s my favorite!
I’ve started losing my milk(more on this later), so my pediatrician said I can slowly start giving her soy milk (I’m lactose intolerant so it’s a precaution) mixed with whatever milk I get. My little sis Bree just had a baby and has been generously sharing her milk with lily too haha
I pump(she started biting me) in the morning and at night for those feedings, then I mix a little of Bree’s milk with soy milk for her afternoon feeding. So far she’s liked it!
I can’t not add a sweet pic of Bree’s new little babe. She is a doll!
