All about Lilly

Lilly is already 2 1/2 years old. She is getting bigger every day. She absolutely loves to watch Spongebob Squarepants and most any Disney movie. She is really getting into coloring and crafts and asks to do something along those lines each day. She is always asking if we can go and play with the "kids", which means that she wants to go and play at the mall play area with the other children that play there. She is getting braver everyday and learning to do more things, like climb onto her bed. She is finally going to nursery each week, even though it is still a fight up until they serve snack, and then she is just fine. One Sunday I made her go over to the snack side while I stayed on the other side of the partition. She was crying and crying, and then I heard the food hit the table, and it was complete and total silence! I swear she is becoming just like her Daddy! She is also big on the attitude and we are trying to combat it each day. Lately whenever I ask her to do something she gives me this big ol' sigh and then goes and does whatever I asked. I swear she is turning into a teenager right before my eyes. She is also a really great big sister. She just loves Molly and helps out with her all the time. I catch her saying phrases to her that I sometimes say like "Hi Pretty Girl", and "Hey Sweet Girl". I just can't get enough of our vivacious little girl, and look forward to a summer full of fun and friends.

Anytime the camera comes out she has to have a picture taken of her!

I have the hardest time getting a real smile from her. Most of the time it is just a cheesy grin

2 Months Old

I can hardly believe how fast time has flown. Molly is already 2 months old! She is doing so many new things now. She weighs in at 11 lbs 4 oz and 22 inches long. That puts her in the 50th percentile all around. She is taking a bath in the bath tub (which she loves), she is smiling more and more each day, her temperament is much better, she is sleeping better every day, she loves to lay on the ground and just kick around. In general she is right on track and doing great. Aaron and I marvel each day at how big she is getting. Time is flying past a little too fast for us. Even though she just got here, it feels like she has been a part of our family for much longer.

I almost got a smile out of her. One of these days I'll get a good picture of it!

As you can see she has had enough of us taking pictures and trying to get her to smile!

Snow Fun

This weekend we were at the cabin in Preston. We had a great time and played in the snow. Aaron's parents got some new snowmobiles and so we took those out for a test drive. We had a great time playing and even got Lilly to go for a ride. She didn't like going with her Daddy, but I got her to go out with me and she had a lot of fun. Aaron went snowmobiling again on Monday and Lilly was inside the whole time watching. She just kept saying, "Daddy's crazy Mom!" I just thought that she was so funny about it.

Happy Valentine's Day!

We had a great Valentine's Day this year. We spent the day relaxing and hanging out with Aaron's parents. Then we made our traditional sugar cookies. We had a great time and Lilly of course loved piling on as many sprinkles as she possibly could. She is sure fun to do these activities with!
Here are a few of our cookies

This is what Aaron's Mom and Molly did the whole time

Here is Aaron decorating his cookie

Here is Lilly piling on the sprinkles. Can you see her cookie under there?

The Best Night Ever!

This is something worth talking about! Last night Molly went to bed at 10:30 pm. I was more than a little skeptical about it, because history has shown that if she goes to bed that early, then she will be up in less than an hour and more than likely it will be right as I get comfortable (isn't that always the case?!?). Anyway, she went to bed at 10:30 pm and didn't get up again until 3:30 am! I was so happy about it! Then I thought "OK, she slept a long time so she will probably be up a long time." I was once again proven wrong. She was back in bed by 5:00 am and got up at 7:00 am. I can't tell you how happy that made me. Now all I can hope for is a repeat performance! Wish us luck!

Molly smiled for the first time today! I was just talking to her and all of a sudden she let the most beautiful smile go. I could hardly believe it and was so happy to see that first smile. It is definitely a confirmation that she likes me!! (you moms out there know what I mean) I can hardly believe how fast they begin to change and grow. She is already so big and is getting happier everyday. I can't believe that she is almost 6 weeks old!

How's My Hair?

I just thought that this was kind of a funny thing. I can't believe that her hair can stand straight up on end - with a little help that is!
