Lil tidbits







We've had a good week here. I'm tellin' ya, I should just carry a tape recorder with me everywhere we go, cuz Lily is just a non-stop source of entertainment. I record as much as I can, but there is so much that I forget! Here are some of the tidbits from the week that I actually remember:



The other afternoon my sister and I took Lily and Payton to the play area at the mall. It is funny to watch how different the two of them are in those situations. Within minutes, Payton had joined a couple older boys in a game of tag. While Lily preferred to play by herself on the big pink hippo. She would climb up to the top, carefully and slowly stand up, raise her hands in the air and look over to me for my approval. I, of course, would clap and carry on. Beaming with pride, she would then scan the bench for any other adults who would give her praise...if they did, she would yell over to me "Dat's a nice guy/girl, momma!" Her smile would only disappear for a moment when another child DARED to come over to her spot on the hippo. What can I say? She's a good girl, but she IS a princess. (and she needs a sibling!)






Wednesday night we went to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant with my parents. Lily was dressed for the occasion (meaning: she wore her tutu). I had no idea she would actually be putting it to good use, but to my surprise, there was a Mariachi Band playing and Lily decided they needed a dancer. So, she was out on the floor shaking her tutu while they played "La Cukaracha" and "La Bamba". They didn't take Lily's request of "Old MacDonald"...on the way home she could not stop talking about it. "Momma, those Amigos played good Spanish music!"






Then today, while Lily was playing on the computer, I got to work on cleaning my house. After awhile, she came running into the bathroom for a potty break and said "Good job cleaning the house, mommy!" I was so touched and was about to thank her for the compliment, when she continued by saying "but you got more work to do. The office floor is still dirty."






That's it for now. Hope everyone is doing well...you may have noticed that I haven't been around as much lately. I have shifted my priorities and the computer has moved down on the list a bit. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!






Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

Oh, Lily! She is an INCREDIBLE communicator! I have missed you guys -- but not due to your absence, instead due to mine :) She really is something special, and I look forward to the day when we can read about a sibling too.
