Mummy and Me

On Monday Mummy started her new job at the university, she'd been busy preparing for a while. This meant that Monday was Lily's first day at nursery. Luckily Lily is a very social baby and enjoyed playing with all the other children. (Although Lily was the prettiest and the cleverest one)

Last weekend we went to a beautiful wedding in Norfolk. The bride looked stunning, and we were lucky to get a glorious, sunny day.

Auntie Amie has come to stay for a few weeks, so Lily has been getting lots of snuggles. We are all looking forward to Lilys cousin making an appearance soon.

Two exciting firsts.....

On Monday Lily did a very exciting thing, she held her own beaker, and drank out of it. I was so proud of her, she's growing up so fast.

Yesterday, Lily pulled herself up into a sitting position, she fell straight over afterwards though. She's been doing it again this morning, she's really strong.

The weigh in.

Lily now weighs a whopping 12lbs 9ozs. She's getting enormous!!!!

Competition Winners......

Lily and I were very excited when we went to the post office to collect a parcel today, we have won a Babyworld competition. We have won three fantastic books. "Millicent and Meer", "How to Grow a Dinosaur" and "Rhinos Don't Eat Pancakes". They are such fantastic books, really big pages covered in colourful pictures, Lily has loved reaching out to touch them.

We had a lovely BBQ for Auntie Tors birthday yesterday and really enjoyed playing with Auntie Tor, Auntie Amie, and Uncle Mike. Us girls went to play on the park, we went on the swings and the slide, Mummy and Auntie Bear played on the climbing frame too.

Lily The Princess.

Lily and I have been very bad bloggers recently, unfortionately we've been very busy exploring lots of new and exciting things, places and people together.

Lily now weighs a whopping 12lbs 3.5ozs, and she looks less like a newborn and more like a baby now. She's started to outgrow some of her 0-3 months clothes and go into some of her 3-6 months so she really is a big girl.

Since I last blogged, we've had Mothers day together, Lily brought me a lovely Tiffanys knecklace that says "Mummy" on it, we've also celebrated Mummys birthday, Grannies birthday, Grandads birthday and Auntie Tors birthday (although we celebrated the latter two in advance). We've been to visit Granny and Grandad in Skegness, and been up to Hartlepool to see Nana and Grandad, and we've spent lots of time with all Lilys Aunties.

Lily has attended her first formal occaison, Marc and Kellys wedding which was a beautiful day, I was so happy that Lily was so well behaved and she even had a boogie with Mummy and Daddy at the disco afterwards.

Lily has progressed alot in the last couple of months. She can now sit up if supported in her donut, and can hold her head for long periods of time, she has recently discovered her hooves and is really enjoying pulling her socks off so she can try to eat them. She is rolling on her own, and is trying really hard to crawl and sit up on her own without success thus far.

Daddy ran the London marathon in 4hours 8mins, Mummy and Lily were very proud, especially of his medal. Mummy and Lily spent the day with Auntie Amie in the park and had lots of fun.

Today was a very big day for Lily, she had her first proper food, she had some porridge, she liked it very much and didn't make as much mess as Mummy and Daddy were expecting.

Overall it's been an exciting time together and there's still lots to see and learn.

Monday 7th March 2011 - Wednesday 9th March 2011

Mummy and Lily had to spend Tuesday in the house waiting for our new cooker to be delivered, it's not good when they say it'll be here between 8am and 6pm.Although actually it gave Mummy an excuse to get some crafting done. Mummy has been crafting lots of scrapbook pages of Lily, we've taken so many pictures of her and she looks beautiful in them all! You will be able to see some of my crafting on my blog Munyip Makes later in the week once I've uploaded the pictures.

Mummy had her 6 week check this week, she got the all clear, Lily goes for hers next week because there were no appointments left for her this week and she has to see a different doctor to Mummy.

Lily has been out for a few walks so that she gets the sun on her, but unfortunately it has been cold most of the time so they've been quick walks. Although we had a warmer afternoon on Wednesday, so Mummy took Lily into the garden for half an hour. Lily loved looking at all the birds we got when Mummy put some bread out.

Wednesday 2nd March 2011 - Sunday 6th March 2011

For the rest of the week Mummy and Lily had lots and lots of play time. Lily recieved another book from Ladybird which she really enjoyed reading, she loves it when Mummy and Daddy read her stories in funny voices and make the animal sounds too.

We also went to the park to feed the ducks with Lilys friend Noah, their Mummies had a nice chat and sandwiches in the sun.

Lily got weighed on Thursday, she weighs a whopping 8lbs 13.5ozs. She is growing really fast, but is still quite small as her 0-3 month clothes are still too big for her!!!!

This week Lily has been lifting her head up more and more and is spending more time looking at the world around her.

Mummy and Daddy had a lovely afternoon with Lily on Sunday, we had a walk into town for a look around the shops, a mini picnic and then lots and lots of lovely cuddles with Lily.
