Mr. Red Bird

Lily has this red bird that hangs from her play mat that has always caught her eye. She loves it! Now that she has just started to grab at things, Mr. Red Bird is really interesting to her. I just had to take a few pictures of her playing with him!

This picture was just too cute not to include :-) This is Lily's mat where her red bird hangs from!

Kickback and Family Camp

Lily is officially a camper! In June we had our week-long camping trip with our high school group and then the weekend after we got home, we went back up to the lake for another weekend of camping with some other families at our church's "Family Camp." Lily was such a trooper and she really did great. Thankfully it wasn't too hot, in the 90's most of the time, and we had a friend's nice, cool trailor to retreat to when we got a little warm!
These two weeks of camping proved to be very monumental in Lily's life! She had a few milestones: In the week in between Kickback and family camp Lily rolled over for the first time! She rolled from her stomack to her back, then, when we were back at the lake the 2nd time, she rolled from her back to her stomach! Also, the first night we were at Family Camp, she slept through the night for the first time (and she hasn't done it since, but that night was great!!!). That's right, she slept from 8:30pm to 7am (and I think it was mostly me waking her up at 7 to make me feel better!), it was incredible!
So, needless to say, we had a great time camping with our little super star. I think a few people thought we were crazy taking a 3 month old camping, but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Lily is so much fun and she really helps us to appreciate every moment.

Steve's 30th

On June 7th, Steve turned 30! So, we had a little bbq (thanks Papa T!) at our house with a few friends. We had a lot of fun and Lily's Uncle Mike, Auntie Bev, and cousins Corryn, Jadon and Kiana even surprised us with a visit! And, as you can see, we had a ton of kids there, which always adds to the excitment!

Ages 16 to 2 weeks!

Lily and her best buddy, Rylee :-)
