Growing by leaps and bounds

It's been too long since I've posted about the cute little things that Lily is up to.

She is at the age where she is copying everything we do. When she's in the bathroom, she wants to go straight to the drawer and pull out the deodorant. For some reason, she always wants to put it on her leg, though. That must be how Corey does it ;) She grabs my face powder, carefully takes out the puff and powders her nose. Today, she found the toenail clipper and proceeded to show me exactly how to use it. It is just so amazing to me that she picks up on all of these things. She still loves the phone, and any kind of ball (still by far her #1 favorite toy). In fact, I went to the local mom's group recently to meet other moms and Lily proceeded to find the only dad at the playground to hang out with. He and his daughter had a pink soccer ball and all Lily wanted to do was throw the ball to this dad. So much for me getting to meet the other moms!

Just in the last few days, her vocabulary has started growing. Up until now, she has been slow to talk. She babbles constantly, but with very few recognizable words (at least to us). Just in the last day or so, she has started saying "Chlo" (what I call Chloe, the dog), fishy, and a few other things.

We keep telling her that her Nanny from California is coming to visit and today, she surprised us with this one:

I know one day we will have to fight with her to take a bath, but for now, she still loves them.

Life with her just gets more fun by the day. Love her to pieces.

hehehehe cute! I can't believe what comes out of Henry's mouth either... I feel sad that we've seen you even less since you've "not been working". What's our problem? I miss you guys!

So, I'm waiting for Nanny's response.....did she blubber upon hearing her name from that sweet tiny little angel baby?! She's just the cutest!

I just got back from the mountains and decided to check the blog before I hit the sack.
This was the best present ever!!!!
My eyes are just welled up with tears right now. I can't wait till I see my baby girl! I'm counting the days.
Thanks for getting that on video. I will cherish that one always.
Love you guys!!
