We’re still here! Summer is FLYING by, I can’t believe how quickly. We’ve been so busy, and having so much fun, I just haven’t had time to update this little blog much.

Lila is doing awesome, she is getting more and more fun every day. She is sitting up now, and can sit unassisted for a little bit at a time. She’s still pretty wobbly, but she LOVES doing this. Shocking, right? Miss Independent!

She is also rolling over all the time. She can stand to be on her belly for much longer now, before getting upset, and needing to be flipped back over–she knows HOW to roll all the way, but she doesn’t do this often yet. She LOVES playing in her exersaucer (“the office”), and her jumper (“the gym”), and loves to fling toys off these onto the floor.

We’ve started giving her rice cereal too–this was hilarious at first. The faces she makes are TOO funny. She was so not a fan at first, but now she loves it, and grabs for the spoon to try to feed herself…before sticking her thumb in her mouth, smearing cereal all over her face, and then all over the chair she’s sitting in.

The latest development (for those of you who don’t follow on FB or Twitter)…is that Lila has her first tooth! I think there are two, actually, but she won’t let me see them, she keeps sticking her tongue over her gums when I try to look. I can definitely feel one, the front bottom right. The bottom left is the other one that I think is coming through. Lila doesn’t really know what to make of it, she is constantly chewing on her bottom lip, and was extra fussy on Monday, when tooth #1 was breaking through. I can’t believe she ALREADY has teeth!

We are also gearing up for a road trip next week. We are driving to VA to see Lila’s grandma, grandpa, and great-grandma! We’re hoping Lila sleeps most of the way, so wish us luck! We’ll also be seeing some friends while we’re down there. It will be a fun trip!
