I know, I know "It's about time!" Anyway, I was watching Lily today and I am amazed at that little girl. She NEVER stops moving. As such a busy baby, she gets into a lot of stuff. Her favorite drawer is in the kitchen and it is filled with plastic kids cups, plates and silverware (mostly from Ikea). She is usually at my feet yelling into cups like they are megaphones while I make our family meals. She also stands all the time now. If she isn't crawling, she is standing. She can reach on top of chairs, filing cabinet and computer desk for interesting looking "toys" which usually turn out to be something she shouldn't be playing with. I am constantly pulling tiny things out of her mouth. It is a wonder she hasn't chocked on anything yet. I vacuum often, but these brothers of hers leave trails of tiny things wherever they go. luckily she has good brothers that pull items out of her mouth if they see she has something hazardous. that being said. When I say "No!" Lily does not hesitate to talk back to me. My scalding is followed most often by an angry "Ahhhh" or "Ugghhh" letting me know that she does not like being told what to do. Speaking of talking, one of the things she does is hand me something and then reach for it back. When she gives me something, I say "Thank you!" and lately, when I give it back to her, she says "Tan" which I assume means thanks or Thank you. She has done this repeatedly, so I don't think it is a fluke. She also jibber-jabbers constantly. She says "Yyyyyaaaaayy" and claps her hands now. She is a talker that one. Such is the life of having a girl I suppose. I also love that she gives kisses. If I am holding her and not paying attention to her, she leans forward, tilts her head, smiles and plants a kiss on my lips. Then she laughs. What a little sweetheart. I love this girl so much.
