Believe it or not, Will did have a 2nd birthday party. Will's birthday is March 1st and the weather is always unpredictable. This year, I decided to be smart and wait to have the party until the end of April. Well, that did me absolutely NO good. It was actually warmer on Will's birthday than it was the day of the party. In fact, I had to move the party to Friday at the last minute because it was supposed to be so cold the day I originally had the party planned. It all worked out in the end and all of Will's friends were able to attend. We had a great time celebrating Will's 2nd birthday with a Backyard Birthday Bash complete with balloons, presents, swing sets, hamburgers, hot dogs, cupcakes, and DEAR, SWEET FRIENDS!

Let me see if I can remember back that far......
We spent Easter Sunday worshiping at our home church with my entire family. After church, we headed to the lake to celebrate Easter with aunts and uncles and cousins. There was even a few new puppies this year! Will and the puppies had a love/hate relationship. He loved them, but hated when they tried to get into his Easter basket. Will had a blast playing and hunting eggs! I love Easter for everything that it means and everything that is promises. Hope all of you had a wonderful Easter as well!
Lily is growing like a weed! In fact, next week she'll be 7 months old. I can not believe it. At her 6 month appointment Lily
- weighed 17 lbs 1 oz
- was 25 3/4 in tall (75%)
- had a head circumference of 42cm
- Lily can sit up and has been since right after 5 months
- She's eating more and more food and feeding herself finger foods
- Lily holds her own bottle! Yay!
- She's scooting across the floor and is able to pull herself up to a crawling position. (She's way ahead of where Will was when it comes to crawling)
- Sleeps a solid 12 hours a night.
- Is ALWAYS happy!
The other day we had Lily's 6 month photo shoot with our neighbor and super talented photographer, Erin Cobb. Here are some of the pictures she captured.
The dress Lily is wearing in the first and third pictures were made for her by her Great Aunt Kay. Doesn't she look like an angel!?!?!?
Lily Bug, we love you with all of our hearts! May God continue to bless your life and watch over you.
