Princes, and Playdates, and parks...oh my!

Lily and her prince, Wyatt. Looks like she's getting ready to put him in a strangle-hold, doesn't it!? Just try to get away from me, my prince! hehe



On the front porch, Lily and I decided to do a photo shoot. This is her favorite "pose". She learned it when I was doin' my hip-hop thang.


Seriously kid, could ya BE any cuter?














We had a wonderful playdate last week with several friends. We went to lunch and then to the park to play. Lily's favorite thing is still the swings but she is also getting a lot more adventurous and independent on the other structures.


















She is so proud of herself climbing like a big girl.

















Hangin' with her friends. She is the youngest of the crew, but she fits right in. She has become so much more social in the last year! The only problem: when the playdate comes to an end, she gets pretty upset. "I want my fwends to come home and wive wif me!"
Somebody needs a sibling! Speaking of which, our homestudy went really well. We have our 2nd and final visit a week from Thursday - then we begin our official wait for baby number 2.
Have a great week!

Looks like Lily & Wyatt are "head over heels" for each other (ha)...
And seriously..NO..she could not be any cuter!!!

Anne Marie said...

No, Lily could absolutely not be any cuter. Well, really, beautiful is more like it! Those have to be two of the most stunning, if not the most stunning pictures of Lily you have :) I know what she means about wanting her friends to live with her. Sometimes I feel the same way -- well, maybe I don't want them to live with me, but some could definitely live a lot closer!
