I can’t believe Lyla is already 6 months old.
Yesterday we started rice cereal. I guess it went as well as can be expected. She didn’t seem repulsed by it so that’s a good sign.
Let’s see – what else has Lyla been up to…she is sitting up on her own and is also very good at rolling onto her stomach. If she’s on her tummy she can also scoot herself backwards. I have a sneaking suspicion she may be crawling earlier than Miles.
Miles is still being very nice to his sister. The other night he helped me feed her a bottle. He was very proud of himself.
Miles is talked up a storm. Some of his most recent sentences are “I found it!”, “Where are we?”, “Watch a movie?”, and “Play choo-choo tracks, (insert name here)?”. He makes us laugh almost every day. He can almost count to ten but for some reason will not say the number three. His new favorite toy is his Thomas the Train set (many thanks to Craig’s list).
He loves to crash his trains and sit on his table while he pushes them around the track.
He’s gotten a little frustrated with us taking too many pictures of him but we still love our new camera.
Eric and I have also been working with a designer (a step down from an architect) to design our new house for our land in Smithville. We’ve almost settled on a plan and if things go as we hope, we should be able to start building next year. Here we are hanging out at the land last weekend.
I’ll leave you with this photo. Miles is kissing his friend, Kaylee, through the glass. Young love…
