So my baby girl turned ONE yesterday, yes ONE!!! Oh my goodness time sure flies...I know I have been MIA from blogging lately, but we have been one super busy family! We celebrated Lilly Grace turning one vintage shabby chic style! I am in love with all things shabby chic, and so shabby chic first birthday party for my girl it was! My mother has a collection of shabby vintage decor, so the decorations were beyond precious, and perfect for a girly birthday! From the old tablecloths, to the roses, to the doilies, to the fabric banners, to the ruffled cake...this little girl sure had one precious party! I have to give a shout out to my mother for all of her amazing help, I couldn't have done it without her! Here are the pictures from her big day!

We had such an amazing afternoon celebrating our little Lilly Grace turning one! The party was a huge success and everything was just so perfect and shabby! ;)
Lilly Grace is now 6 months old! Time is a flying! She is such a little love bug, she has really been the perfect final piece to our family! She is blossoming so much as of late, and really starting to show us her little personality (or should I say big personality!)...she is a firecracker! Chris and I are in for it :)
Here's where she's at now:
*She's a skinny minnie! She weighed in at 14 pounds 1 oz at her 6 check up (%25)
(she went from the 10th percentile at 4 months to the 25th so that was great!)
*She is 25 1/2 inches long (%25)
*She is sleeping from 9 at night to until about 7 in the morning and takes 2 or 3 one hour naps every day!
*She still has bright blue eyes, and her hair is blonde with a hint of some red lately!
*She just started solids this past week, we started on the oatmeal and formula and skipped the rice cereal...and are now starting sweet potatoes!
*She is the smiliest little girl all the time!
*She can sit up on her own for a little bit, but not fully by herself quite yet...she just tries to stand right up!
*She is already up on all fours and rocking and scooting, crawling is coming any day...Oh my!
*She adores her brother more than anything in the world, and all she wants to do is be with him!
*She is in size 2 diapers and just moved into 6 month clothes!
*She loves watching baby Einstein DVD's, they are her favorite!
*She had her first tooth come in last month and now it is all the way through!
Lilly Grace is now 4 months old! She is doing new things this month and her personality is really blossoming! She had her 4 month check up last week and she is healthy as a horse but a serious skinny minnie! I'm not used to this stuff, haha I'm used to chunker baby in the 100th percentile like Joshua was...Doc says her weight prob has mostly to do with the reflux, so we switched her from Zantac to Prevacid and have already noticed a huge difference! She is eating normally now and 6 oz instead of 4! So hoping it continues to work until she grows out of this stinky reflux! Here's where she's at now!
Weight: 12 lb 8 oz (15-20%)
Height: 23 3/4 (25%)
Head: 16 in (50%)
*She still has bright blue eyes and longg eyelashes (I'm so jealous!)
*She is belly laughing as of this month!
*She is in size 2 diapers and size 3 month and 3-6 month clothing!
*She is napping 2 times a day for 2 hours and then sleeps from about 10-7! Such an awesome lil sleeper just like her brother!
*She loves her door jumper, and has figured out how to jump in it as of this month!
*She eats 5-6 oz every 3-4 hours now!
*She hasn't yet started oatmeal even though Doc gave us the go ahead to start any time now, we're gonna wait til 5 months like we did with Joshua!
*She still adores being in the baby Bjorn, not so good for mommy's neck so daddy tends to wear it some at night if she gets a lil fussy, she immediately gets happy in it!
*She started Prevacid this month, and takes half a tablet twice a day (she doesn't mind the taste at all!)
*She is rolling front to back and now back to front all the time!
*We are working on her sitting up now every day!
*She is grabbing things like crazy, and everything is going to the mouth!
*She smiles all the time!
*She loves her Little Lamb swing and still naps in it!
*She can now touch both her feet in her Jumperoo and she loves jumping in that while brother plays!
*She has enough hair now for bows and I am loving it!
This post is 2 weeks late, but sweet little Lil is 3 months old now! She is just an angel baby, and we are enjoying our new little addition so much!! It's awesome now that she's starting to communicate and do activities etc! Life has gotten leaps and bounds easier in just one short month, it's amazing! Lilly is the happiest little baby now, I'm so glad we figured out she has a milk protein allergy sooner than later, it changed her life with the new formula! Here's where Lilly Grace is at now!
*She weighs almost 12 lbs!
*She is in 3 month and some 3 to 6 month clothes (she's long and skinny!)
*She is just now moving into size 2 diapers!
*She eats about 5-6 ounces every 3-4 hours!
*She is able to roll front to back and almost back to front now all by herself (we had to say goodbye to the beloved swaddle as soon as her rolling started she flipped over for the first time at night yikes that was super scary!)
*She is a smiling little thing all the time!
*She talks back to us all the time now it's so sweet!
*She is on a routine at this point with sleep and naps which is awesome! She goes down at night at 11 and sleeps straight through until 7 am!
*She really adores her
playmat these days and grabs at the animals like crazy!
*She has bright blue eyes still, they're definitely not changing!
*She just started in her jumperoo this week (with a pillow behind her head) and she loves it, she's had full neck control for while now!
*Her hair is really growing fast! (and darkening up a TINY bit but still blonde)
*She adores her big brother, truly just beams when he's talking to her it melts my heart every time!
*We have finally been getting out of the house again a lot as of this month finally, fresh air feels so good!!
*She has begun teething we think, she is chopping at her little hands and drooling like crazy, ugh!
*She loves watching Princess Sophia!
*She still loves her Bjorn at night when she gets a lil fussy!
Baby girl turned 2 months old yesterday! And oh man she is a totally different baby now than her first month...we JUST discovered last week that all her fussiness and pain when eating was due to the fact that she has a milk protein intolerance, which means her body can't digest milk...so we switched to Similac Alimentum (for milk allergies) and oh boy she has been a different child! Don't get me wrong i know crying comes with every baby the first few months, but episodes of colic will just about kill you! We just hated we knew she was in pain and didn't know how to help her when she had her crying fits! And now she is truly the smiliest happiest girl, no more pain!! So all is good in the hood now!
All for LG, she is such a doll baby! She is JUST like her brother, not only are they twins they act exactly alike! She is really focusing now and smiles all the time and coos and is pulling at things now! She just had her 2 month check up yesterday and got the dreaded first round of shots ughh hate them every time, way hard to watch for me!...she was pretty miserable yesterday poor thing! She looks great, she's a long skinny minnie at this point, unlike her chunk brother haha! Funny thing is they eat the same amount now, looking back on where J was! But yet he was a pound & half bigger, but she has grown an inch half longer...curious to see where she is at 4 months...She had a rough go at it this last month with the ER trip and being sick and having the milk allergy poor thing, i can already tell she's chunking up faster now!
Here were her stats:
*Weight- 10 lbs 4 oz's (7 lbs 4 oz at birth)
*Length- 22 1/2 in. (18 3/4 in. at birth)
*Head Circ- 15 in.
Here's where she's at now!
*She has bright blue eyes and her hair is still getting blonder!
*She is a smiley little munchkin, so happy all time now!
*She wears 0-3 month and 3 month clothing, and size 1 diapers!
*She eats 4-5 ounces every 3 hours!
*She sleeps 7 or 8 hrs at time normally from 11-6 or 7!
*She loves her floor mat, and is now pulling at the hanging animals as of last week!
*She is a daddy's girl!
*She loves watching Mickey Mouse in the morning with her brother!
*She still adores bath time!
*She has a dimple on her left cheek!
*She loves looking in the mirror and being carried in her Bjorn!
*She lovess her big brother, when she hears his voice she smiles!
*She had he first ER trip last month for a fever, and boy was that traumatic for all of us! Praying we're not back there any time soon!
*She can lift her neck so high already on her belly, and has been rolling front to back!
*She's now cooing!
She's a little love bug, and we are so in love with this sweet girl!
