Well we have been very busy lately. Lets see...last Friday we had a fun taco night at Cassie & Matt's house, YUM margaritas!! I can finally drink them now :-) On Saturday, I was gone all day helping my mom at a wedding. She is a photographer and is busy taking lots of wedding pictures now. On Sunday, Kyle went golfing with my dad and grandpa and I went up to Logansport to hang out with my mom, uncle, aunt Martina, and Nicole, Olivia, & Logan. Lilly loves playing with the kids! Monday was finally our day to relax!

Market Day is ending soon for the summer :-( and will start back up again in September. I am bummed because I had to go and look for a summer job! I did get a job at Kohl's, so I will be working there a few days a week. I love working for Market Day and I really don't want to work anywhere else! Oh well...

Lilly is doing great! She is still rolling everywhere and she can now get up on hands & knees and rocks back and forth. She also can crawl (or scoot I guess) backwards. It is pretty funny watching her! She is a very active baby. She is already in to everything! I love love love my baby Lilly!!!!

Lilly is rolling all around the living room and watching Elmo on Sesame Street. Tucker is laying in the sun. I am watching my favorite person in the whole entire world (Lilly) and eating a yummy Everything bagel and drinking coffee. Have you ever tried putting butter & salt on your bagel? I had never heard of it until Kyle told me he has been doing it since he was a kid. It is so yummy and especially delicious on everything bagels!

So Lilly's main mode of transportation now is rolling. She will seriously roll from room to room. And she looks so very proud of herself!! Her favorite thing to roll to it the wires by the TV (I bad, right?? We have to BABYPROOF the house!!!!) and she loves getting into all of the magazines under the coffeetable. She doesn't so much like to sit still and play anymore, she is much more happy exploring the house!!

Enjoy the pictures! I can't believe how big Lilly is getting. I held a newborn baby (2 weeks old) yesterday and she was teeny teeny tiny that I can't remember Lilly being so little and fragile. Time flies...8 months old in about two weeks! WOW.

7 months old!

So tonight we had free KFC grilled chicken dinners and free fruiteas from Arby's!!! Gotta love free food! I have been going to (thanks Brittany for having this link on your blog) and finding a lot of great deals. I am trying really hard to be a money saving mom! We spend so much money every month eating out and buying things we really don't need. This website is awesome though!

Lil is 7 months old and soooo close to crawling. She usually gives up and just rolls everywhere. If she wants something, she just rolls right to it! Lilly was baptized on Saturday and was such a good girl! We had a reception at our house afterwards, and everyone loved spending time with Lilly. Lilly is truly the best little baby. She never cries unless she is starving. She is always so happy and smiling all the time. We are so blessed to have such an amazing baby. Everyone tells me our second child will be the complete opposite!!

Lilly has also been on formula for about 1 week straight now. I have been alternating between breastmilk and formula for about 3 weeks, and just recently decided it was time for the switch. I loved breastfeeding and everything that went with it, but I was just tired. It actually takes a lot of work especially since I was mainly pumping all day so that she could drink from a bottle (her preference).

Hope everyone has a great week!
