Friday Five...(ish)

Five things that made me smile this week. You will be soooo surprised that they are ALL things that Lily said or did.
1. Picture this: Hubs, Lily, and I sittin' on the couch one evening having some good conversation.
Lily: "You duys awe beauty-ful."
Me: "Who's beautiful?"
Lily: "You and daddy, momma!"
2. In the parking lot at the grocery store:
Lily: (pointing up) "Wook momma, it's da wetter G!"
Me: "Yes, Lily, we are parked in Row G, very good."
Lily: "I'm pwacticing my wetters."
She also screamed out E-X-I-T when we were heading out...her practicing is really paying off!
3. Giving her a bubble bath. You KNOW Lil Bubble Queen WUVS her bubble bath!
4. Every day when we walked outside she declared "It's a BEAUTY-FUL day!" (rain or shine)...she is really keeping me in check in that area. I am very careful not to say things like "It's crappy outside" or "I can't believe it's freakin' raining again"...I keep those thoughts to myself and just agree with her.
5. When she woke up from her nap yesterday, as she was still groggily rubbing her eyes, she rambled "I went to sweep all by myself so now I can get a special bweet (treat) and go to da mall with daddy and get a tattoo...dat will make me happy." So, we trotted off to the mall yesterday to get her a "buttaswy" tattoo. Lord help me when she turns 18. And, yes, we are still bribing her with "special treats" to have her go to sleep all by herself. sue me.
OK, and since I just can't stop myself, here is one more for good measure...
Lily has been painting a lot lately. Usually very basic stuff. A circle here, an oval there. But, Tuesday when I asked her what she had just painted she replied "a birdie". I thought GREAT! That is a little more imaginative. Then she continued, "And dere's da bird poop, momma. See it?" Of course I see it. Dat's my girl!
Oh crap, just one more...all of a sudden she sits crossing her legs. All the time. Even in her booster chair while eating (with her leg all cramped under the table). She has developed a sudden obvious interest in doing things "Just wike you, momma!"
As you can see, I've been smiling a lot this week.

I am head over heels, falling in love with her more and more with the things you share about her. What a bright, beautiful spirit she has.

Wish I could embrace each day like she does- kids teach us what life really IS... and that it's meant to be lived in the moment.

It is a beautiful day. She is such a little miracle. I love that picture with the bubbles on her head.

Oh, Nikki, you are so lucky. I always feel soo happy when I visit your site. The bubble bath photo is too cute, and her letters are just too much. She is going to be reading in no time!

How precious is your girl? Honestly!
I lovwe how you write about her, complete with her little speech fumbles. My nephew (who is 3) pronounces his Ls by saying the Y sound, so he says stuff like:
"Yook, Auntie! A Yitto Boy!"
or
"I Yove You, Auntie"
It is too cute!

a&mg said...
