They are just adorable!! Also, Lilly turned 13 months old today!! I can't believe it has been a month since she turned one year old!!!! Time is definitely not slowing down with two kids! Haha. So, Lilly, has much changed since you turned one??
It may sound crazy, but yes! You show us more and more of your personality every day. You are so funny (you get that from your Mommy). You are so interactive and you love to play games. For example, you think it is HILARIOUS for me to pretend like I am smelling something and make a face and say "Shooeey, that is stink-ee!" You will keep handing me whatever it is over and over and over. You like "this little piggy", peek-a-boo, "I'm gonna get you!!!", sneaking up on Tank, stealing Reid's paci (this, I believe, is one of your favorites). You really like to test your boundaries...if we say "no" or "ahh-ahh-ahh", you turn around and grin really big to see whether or not it a serious no. Also, you are so smart--you have figured out that if I am nursing Reid, if it is not really serious--I am not going to get up and you take FULL advantage of this.
You talk and get more expressive each day. I was talking to someone and using my hands and I looked over and you were moving your hands right along with me--you are a little sponge. You love your puzzles, alphabet pal, the activity table, your "lap top", your books, and hangers. You love to be read to...however, you rarely sit still long enough to hear the entire book.
Today, however, you sat on my lap all day long. This is you just laying on the couch. I can not stress enough to you how you NEVER do this. You have taken a three-hour nap two days in a row. I think you are fighting something off. You still knee walk and walk with your peg-leg walk. You walk as fast as you can everywhere you go--this leads to some bruises! You have discovered the trash can and keep throwing things away when we aren't looking...this is not one of my favorite things that you do. You are driving us crazy when it comes to feeding you. You will LOVE something one night and then refuse to touch it the next night. You have started eating meat this week. You like it!! (This week at least.) You love your brother more and more every day. Today, he was laying down and you laid next to him and put your hand on his head and laid your head on his back...it was the sweetest thing I have seen. I kind of teared up a little. Your daddy and I love you so much and we just enjoy getting to know you more and more every day. I can't say enough how blessed we are to be your parents!
