18 Months Old

Lady Lilly is 18 months old! She is seriously such a joy to have in our family and we can't get enough of her. She absolutely adores her big brother and loves to play with him and follow him around like a little puppy. I'm pretty sure Bryson would say Lilly has mastered the art of being an annoying little sister, but boy does he love her and dotes over her like you wouldn't believe.
This girl is all over the place! Upstairs, downstairs, to the pantry, back upstairs, back downstairs, to the bathroom, back to the pantry and over and over again! Her eagerness to explore is endless and she usually leaves a trail of messes wherever she goes.
Now that the weather has warmed up a bit, she has been enjoying playing outside in our front yard with the neighbor girls and at the park.

Lilly LOVES when daddy comes home. When she hears the garage door open, she runs to the back door and starts babbling "dada" and pointing until he walks in. Then she darts into his arms and gives him the biggest love. Mike looks forward to it every day. It is seriously the most adorable thing so I had to capture it on video.

By golly this girl can eat! She is constantly eating! She will eat anything we give her, but some of her favorite foods are mandarin oranges, pickles, bread, cooked carrots, cheese, blueberry muffins, apples, minestrone soup, popcorn, yogurt and anything she can manage to steal from the pantry. She had her 18 month doctor's appointment the other day and is 31 inches tall (50%tile) and weighs 20 lbs. 3 oz (25%tile). She's still a tiny little thing but is growing and developing like a champ.

She loves when her Granny Goose and Grandpa Hink come to visit. She loves climbing up onto their laps and having them read her a story.
Lilly loves to sing songs, read books, color, and she still especially LOVES to dance!!! She's learned how to turn the radio on all by herself just so she has music to dance to. We have several killer dance sessions a day.
Here's another little clip of Lilly doing patty-cake. Apparently Bryson and I both need to learn the words a little better...ha!

Favorite quote this week:
"Be with someone that makes you happy."

We sure love you Lilly!

Life rules.
