Christmas Morning!

We had a wonderful Christmas morning here just the 3 of us- we were all spoiled, especially Miss Lily!! She loved all of her presents and had fun opening them!!





Christmas Eve!

Christmas Eve we went to church with my parents and then headed up to meet Nelsons family (his moms side) for our Christmas Eve dinner celebration.

We had a very nice time and Lily was walking all around!!

I don't have many pictures from it yet, but will add more soon!



Christmas #1

Wow it has been awhile since I last posted... things have been crazy with me starting back at work and Christmas!!

I am going to break Christmas up into a few posts with some pics from each!

Our First Christmas dinner was with Nelsons parents, sisters and grandparents- we celebrated the Sunday before Christmas. It was really nice, quiet, and a lot of fun was had by all. We were all very spoiled!!

This and That

Things have been pretty busy for us lately, I feel like we have been going non-stop! I am sure that will let up after Christmas!!

Lily is wonderful- doing really well at the sitters. She has her good and bad times there, a bit sucky when she is tired, etc- but what baby isn't! She is still peeing when we put her on the potty... but i am not sure she likes the music it plays- she jumps off as soon as the music plays, lol.

She is talking, walking and dancing all the time- it is soo cute!! She changes so much and learns so much everyday- she is so much fun!!

We got a few more pictures from Lily's photo session last month- these pics are adorable!!

Potty update!

I just want to preface this by saying we are not trying to potty train Lily yet... She got the toilet as a birthday gift and we are just getting her familiar with it. We just put her on when we change her bum or before a bath, and when she wants off, we help her off.

Anyways... This morning when we all got up I was changing her diaper, and put her on the potty- not even 2 seconds later she peed!!!

This is my baby genius, hehe!!

Lily went pee pee on the potty!!

Tonight when we were getting lily ready for bed we put her on her new princess potty and I was reading her a potty book.... The next thing we knew the toilet was singing and playing music... Lily had peed!! We were so excited we scared her a bit, haha! After we showed her what she had done she also got a little excited.

We are so proud of our little baby genius, hehe!

Lily's Birthday Party!!

On Saturday we had Lily's big 1st Birthday party! It was a great success and I think Lily had a good time! She was such a good girl, no tears all day!! I thought she might get a little overwhelmed with all of the people, but she didn't at all!! She was thoroughly spoiled by everyone! We would like to send out a great big thanks to all!

Lily walking :) She is pretty quick!

Her ladybug cake from Divalicious cakes


She really focused on the black dots on the cake... unfortunately they stained her hands, lol.

Our little family :)

Thanks again to everyone!!

Birthday post #1

Here is the first of our Birthday posts... these pictures are from Lily's actual birthday.

We had a very busy day with pictures, Lily's first happy meal, a play date with Clara, and then a quiet dinner at home just Mommy, Daddy and Lily!

Lily loved her gifts from us, especially her new Wisper Ride Buggy!!

SHE WALKS!!!

Tonight Lily took her first steps tonight, the night before her 1st birthday!! She is such a big girl now, no longer my itty bitty baby girl. A bunch of us were at my mom's tonight having coffee and Lily was playing with her Tia Erica, they were practicing walking and then all of the sudden Lily took 5 steps!! She repeated this a few times throughout the night. Unfortunately Nelson wasn't there, but hopefully Lily will do it again soon for him.

I really can't believe Lily will be one tomorrow!! We plan to spend the day having lots of fun. She is getting her 1 year pictures tomorrow, doing some visiting, and a playdate! At night the 3 of us are going to have a nice dinner and some birthday cake!!

This weekend we have Lily's Birthday Party on Saturday, it should be a great time for all. I will be sure to take a ton of pictures over the next several days and will post them!!

Learning so much, so fast!!

Lily is learning so many things everyday that I can't possibly remember them all to put on here!

Here are a few:
New words: duck, mooo, pa pa pa (grandpa), Juuu (julie), jep (jeff), cell (michele), ia (tia erica, tia elsa), zee zee (lindsay)

When we ask what a monkey says she dances like a monkey and says "eee eee".

She tries to open and shut doors, and loves it!

She dances to "sweet caroline" and says bop bop bop- she absolutely loves this song and stops and claps and dances as soon as she hears it.

There are so many things I missed!! I am going to try to get some on video and put them up soon!

Santa Pics!

Lily sat on Santa's knee on Saturday... she was in awe of him and didn't want off, she was all smiles and loved feeling his beard.


Brushing teeth!!

Now that Lily is getting more teeth we decided its time to stop using just the finger brush and to start using a real tooth brush... Lily thinks it is great!!

I let her brush her teeth while I brush mine, and then we brush hers again.

Learning so much!

Over the last week it seems like Lily has learned so much!

- She mooo's when we ask what a cow says, but she also points to her rocking horse and mooo's, it is soo cute.
- she said "Duck" and she said "Quack"- she is also LOVING her rubber ducks!
- she said "Lindsay", but now she says "Zee" and sticks her finger in her mouth- we are assuming this is because Lindsay was trying to show her how to make a popping sound with her finger/cheek.
- she loves to dance and giggle- we were playing the Glee soundtrack tonight and Sweet Caroline comes on and she says "Bap Bap Bap" and gets soo excited!
- she said Grandpa
- she is soooo close to walking on her own. When she pushes around her mail cart she runs all over the room, literally runs! and when she gets into a corner she moves it back and forth until she can run again!
