Make up, Love You's, and Walking

While I am putting on my makeup, Lilly is usually right there inspecting the goods. I usually don't have any problems with her opening anything and trying it out, but apparently she has learned a thing or two. All of a sudden she can open almost everything! Well on Sunday morning as I was getting ready for church, I wasn't watching her so when I turned around I was a little surprised to see that she had found my eye liner. She was so proud that she could put that on. Look, the lines are pretty straight too!
The other night Lilly woke up at around 3:00 am. I decided to just get her up and calm her down in our bed (don't worry she has never spent one night in our bed!) Anyway, She came into our room and promptly said "Mom, I watch TV show?" I was like "What!" she has never said that before! So now I am thinking "Is she watching too much TV?" Anyway, I said no there was no TV on this late, then I told her to go to sleep. She said, "OK, Mommy love you, night night." Boy, what a way to get to a person. She has never said anything like that I was just so taken aback. I can't believe how grown up she is all of a sudden, and now she is starting to say sentences! Yikes! I do have to also say that she is finally walking! Yeah!! I am so excited. For about 3 weeks now she has been pretty mobile. Her personality has changed a lot and we are all a lot happier now! I just love to see how her personality has grown is such a short time.

Our Fun Filled Saturday

I have decided that when Saturday comes around, even though we have a busy week, we can't spend all day cleaning the house and doing miscellaneous things. I have decided that we have to go out and do something fun with the family. So, we decided to visit a local animal supply store that also has a petting zoo in the back. It was so much fun to watch Lilly. They had some puppies there and she was on the ground just going crazy and waving at all these little dogs. The we went on to see tortoises, bunnies, chicks, baby ducks, birds, ostriches, horses, emu, goats, and many more! She had a great time seeing the animals. After the petting zoo we went to Craigo's! That's right, Pocatello got a Craigo's (can you believe it) it definitely is a totally reminder of Rexburg. This Craigo's is new and pretty fun to visit. While there Aaron made the perfect ice cream cone! Three cheers for Aaron!

Shh! She's Sleeping

Lately Lilly has started this thing where she gets on our bed, lays on the pillows and says "night night" then she promptly pretends to fall asleep. It is just so funny to watch. I can sure say that I wish she would go to sleep so quickly!

Anything Chocolate!

I know it has been far too long since an update. So get ready for some serious blogging!

Lately, Lilly has had a serious sweet tooth! If it has any chocolate in it she is all over it. My dad brought her some Hershey Kisses so now she asks me for a "kiss from papa." Then one night Aaron made a pie that had chocolate in it! as you can tell, she loved it.

Then just the other morning I decided to make chocolate chip pancakes (thanks Britni!) and I have never seen Lilly eat pancakes more than she did that morning! Oh well, she is definitely all girl!

The time has finally come for us to announce that we are expecting baby number 2! I am due somewhere between December and January. I say somewhere because my uterus is measuring bigger than the baby, so we will have to wait and see what happens. Things are great and I feel fantastic! I almost couldn't feel better! I am a high risk pregnancy this time due to being pre-eclamptic with Lilly, so my doctor is watching me like a hawk! All we are hoping for is a healthy baby, but Lilly keeps saying that she is going to have a sister! (we'll see how much she really likes her "sister" when the baby actually comes home!)

What do you think of our names? We are thinking that if it is a boy it will be Landon Karl Haws, and if it is a girl Molly Lynn Haws. Let me know what you think!
