Lily is Nine Months Old!
Even as I write that, it's hard to believe.
I know I've blogged about this before, but Lily is my baby, and it's hard seeing your baby grow up so fast.
A couple of weeks ago, I told you that Lily had started crawling. Now, Lily is pulling up. One of the pictures above shows how she can stand if she's holding on to something. I snapped the other picture of her in her high chair tonight during dinner.
That smile you see on Lily's face - that's exactly who Lily is.
Lily is so happy to be here. She requires so little and loves so much. I just feel so lucky to know her.
And the fact that she's my daughter - well, that's just the icing on the cake.
Nine months have truly just flown by. And Lily is changing so quickly. I think that's what Chris and I notice the most, because at nine months Ann Catherine wasn't doing all of these things. She was playing "catch-up" from being premature (although she's not anymore!)
But Lily is just growing up so fast. I've often heard that the second child usually walks sooner because they're watching their older siblings do it and they learn to also.
I don't doubt it. I'm glad Lily has Ann Catherine to learn from.
I just wish she wouldn't learn so quickly :)
