Crazy Sleeper

It is weird not posting weekly updates anymore but I plan on doing them monthly if I can remember everything that happened that month. Until then I had to make a post about how Lillian sleeps. We have a video monitor through an app on our phones,tablets, or computer. The camera itself is a Foscam IP camera (not sure of a model number but Google it and you get something that looks like this
and we use a free app called IP Cam Viewer lite. It's simple and was way cheaper than the actual baby video monitors. It has lots of features but since we just use the free app we just have video monitoring which is enough for me. If I wake up in the middle of the night worried about Lillian I just pull up the app and I can clearly see her and her chest moving up and down. Here are a couple pictures I have been taking since Lillian was about 6 months old. She is a crazy all over the place sleeper. Please ignore the adds from the screenshots. Like I said it was a free app.
One paci for the mouth and one for the hand

Daddy sleeps like this too. Must be dreaming of laying in a hammock.

She was actually still asleep here. Scared me to death when I first pulled it up

Push-ups in her sleep. Makes her Daddy proud.

I find her like this a lot.

When she wakes up from naps she always stares right at the camera like "hey Mom come get me"


Surely that can't be comfortable



She sticks her legs through the slats a lot too but has never gotten stuck





These two are from just a few weeks ago and the first time she ever tried to stand up in her crib



Conducting the Baby Einstein Orchestra in her sleep


Playing with her hair


Sleeping sitting up

We have a hair twirler

This was one of the first ones. Crazy sleeper = crazy hair

Too long to sleep sideways anymore

Booty in the air is her typical position

Mama Mia Pizza Pie

We had our friends Erin and Jordan come down for the weekend. We decided to make homemade pizza's for dinner on Saturday. Kevin and I are very boring when it comes to pizza. We only care for traditional pepperoni pizza! Erin is a little more adventurous and had ham, pinneapple, pepperoni, and barbeque sauce. I only took a few pictures and forgot to get one of the finished products because I was starving by the time they were done.
We apparently don't have a roller so we improvised and used a glass to roll out the dough. 

Kevin tried his hand at tossing the dough. He surprisingly did very well.

The pre-oven finished product!

It was good but honestly I'd rather just order from Pizza Hut. Although it was fun to make. And for dessert we made Samoas from scratch!

52 Weeks of Lillian & 1 Yr. Photos

This idea is fairly popular right now. Generally I have seen friends take monthly pictures but I wanted to see if I could see changes on a weekly basis. I was making weekly blog updates anyways so why not add a pictures. Here is how our sweet girl changed over her first year of life. (I did forget a week around Christmas which was week 40. oops!) p.s. You have already seen these pictures but now they are all together.

I enjoyed taking these and seeing her change. I hope to do this again with any other future children and I haven't decided if I will continue taking pictures of Lillian on a monthly basis from here on out or not.

Kevin decided to take Lillian's 1 year pictures. We never had a nice/warm day outside around her birthday to take them so we only got a few good shots.
