A Week Full of Growing Up

At the beginning of this week I posted Lily's 7 month update, but in the past week Lily has really changed and made some developmental leaps that I didn't want to leave out.

She can easily get up on her hands and knees and rock back and forth, she could start crawling any day!

She has started to refuse being swaddled. Any time we swaddle her to go to sleep, she breaks free before falling asleep. So bye bye Swaddler! She can also easily put herself back to sleep, I have heard her cough then talk to herself a little before just going back to sleep with no help from her parents.

She has officially gotten rid of her swing! She just won't sit in it, but tries to throw herself out of it head first, and if that doesn't work she just yells! We have taken it out of the living room and reorganized the furniture so she has more free room to get around on the floor. What a big girl!

I didn't want to leave Johnny out, but he has been sick for a few days now and has spent his days like this, watching movies and drinking juice. Here is hoping no more vomiting, fevers or running noises and a nice quite week end.
