My Beautiful Lilah
Lilah is getting SO big. She has just started babbling. It sounds so wonderful. She wakes up and I hear her chattering away. It's so nice to have a baby that wakes up happy. It's very rare for Aaron to wake up and play in his crib, he usually wakes up crying or at least yelling for me. Lilah also crawls through the house moving her mouth like she's talking, but nothing comes out...she very closely resembles a little fishy. She has also started saying, "Mama" !! Yay baby girl!! I'm still not sure if it's purposeful, but it sure sounds cute. None of my children have said "Mama" before they say "Dada", so it's pretty wonderful to hear "Mama" come out of her mouth! Lilah is also pulling up to standing now...she does it a lot more often when she can pull up on something short...like a toy bin or something...but she has done it on the sofa a couple of times. She's been sleeping great. A lot of times she'll go to bed, but will wake up screaming a short time later. She usually has a big burp and then I hold her and she'll fall asleep on my shoulder without much ado...and then she usually sleeps thru the night until 7-ish. Just perfect, if you ask me. Aaron, meanwhile, is still waking at least once a night. I think it's more just a habit for him, but I don't care...I mean, I'd rather he sleep, but I can just give him a bottle and he goes back to sleep, so it's really not so bad. Both babies nap at the same time in the afternoon, so I often have to cut Lilah's morning nap short so she'll take her nap at the same time as Aaron in the afternoon. That is VERY important to my sanity.
