Lily passed the five-month mark yesterday, and is doing great! Our big recent milestone is starting her on rice cereal, and it’s going about as well as one would expect. She’s getting better at it each day, though, and doesn’t hate it completely. She also continues to sleep relatively well at night and is taking decent naps throughout the day – something mommy is very happy about.
Lily was also lucky enough to hang out with Uncle Noel and Aunt Christine (and her cousins) last week so Steph and I could catch a matinee of the new Harry Potter movie. I don’t think we had been apart from her for quite that long before, and of course we spent the entire movie glancing at our cell phones and worrying if Lily was spending every moment wailing. Praise the Lord she did great, though, and gave us hope for future baby-sitting occasions!
