In the Crib!

Last night was the first time Lillian slept in her own room during the night.  It was a bit sad for both of us but also nice to be able to get ready for bed without tiptoeing around the room!  She slept  like she normally does so it seems as though it was an easy adjustment for her (she has been taking naps in her room for several weeks now).

Cider Mill and Mom’s Visit

This past week my mom came in for a visit to spend time with Lilly and me.  During her stay we took Lilly on her first trip to the Franklin Cider Mill with Aunt Terry.  It was one of our last beautiful Autumn days.  I carried Lilly in her Baby Bjorn – she LOVES the Baby Bjorn and takes everything in while sucking on the fabric of the carrier, of course.

Rolling Around with Grandma

Yesterday grandma and I took Lillian for her first Gymboree class.  She LOVED watching the other babies and playing with us.  There were three other babies who were all a bit older.  It is tough to get her to a scheduled class right now because her nap times are changing, but I hope to take her to open gym once a week and am trying Kindermusik with her next week.  She always seems to do really well in scenarios where there is a lot of stimulation, but of course she starts crying and throws a fit once she is back in her car seat and alone with mom again.

Looking forward to getting out with her more!


Lilly’s first time going down a slide!

Detroit Free Press Marathon

Bill at Mile 25

Run Daddy Run!

We are so proud of Bill, who completed his first marathon yesterday!  Bill finished in 3 hours and 54 minutes.  Impressive for a guy who never ran more than a mile before his training started just 10 weeks ago!  Grandpa Bill and I went down to cheer him on while Grandma Judy watched Lilly.  We were able to see him at mile 16, 18, and 25.  He looked great the entire time, and even walked a mile back to our car after the race.  CONGRATULATIONS BILL!!!
