Miss Piggy

Can you believe it?  She looks like such a big girl to me with one little piggy tail!  Sadly enough, I haven't been able to manage to get one in since this day, Lily is quite the wiggle worm!  I'll keep working on it though, it can only get longer!

We Want YOU!!!!

The past week and a half, and for the next few weeks, we've been going through recruitment.  What is that exactly?  It is essentially being the worst parents in the world.  Buz is applying for jobs right now, and there is an endless slew of open houses, game nights, dinners... most of which are not for children, just applicants and their spouses.  Thanks to our moms for watching Lily so much and giving her the attention she needs when we can't!
 Hopefully it will all pay off soon.  We'll be done with all the events by the end of September, an should know where Buz will be working by November!  It will be a relief to know he has a job to look forward to after graduation.
Speaking of recruitment, Lily has officially joined the Army!!! Not really, but she's started army crawling!  She's even daring to get up on her knees for a few seconds.  Don't have any pics yet, and I don't have a cord to connect our video camera to the computer.  I'll work on that!

It's a miracle!!!  It's 11:30 am and Lily is actually taking a nap.  I risked just about everything to take this picture, but I had to document.  For those of you who don't know, this little one has decided sleeping is a thing for lazy people.  Day or night, she's up for playing.  This may be part of the reason she's not growing!!!  Not really, but today I decided to just see what would happen.  So I tried again.  She fussed for maybe five minutes, then nothing.  I went to check on her since she is known to quiet down and just play, but I beheld this blessed sight!!

A Half

That's right!!! My baby is now "a half!"  I can't believe how fast the last 6 months have come and gone.  Lily is such a happy and smiley baby and we are so blessed to be her parents.  The latest stats are:
Weight:  12 lbs 9 oz  -  2nd percentile
Length:  25.98 inches - 57th percentile (and as a side note, where do they get the .98?  It's not like the scale is so exact they can see .98 inches!!)
Head:  I don't remember the exact measurement, but it was in the 11th percentile
So, as we have always known, we have a little munchkin!
These days, she does a lot of sitting up, and we do a lot of trying to get her to eat.  If it's veggies it's no biggie, but the fruit is where she struggles.  I thought they told you to start with veggies because the fruit is easy.  HA!  
This pic is for daddy.  He feels he needs to push the whole U of U issue on Lily and then she'll bleed Crimson.  I, on the other hand, know that's not how it works.  I'm relying in reverse psychology and the undeniable fact that BYU is just plain better than the U!!
At this point in our lives, Buz has officially started his Master's program, which means he's not working anymore.  And if you're wondering, I'm not working either!!! So, if anyone is interested in playing board games (not BORED games), seriously give us a holler.  (We're open to other cheap forms of entertainment too!)
