My Dancing Queen!!

Last night we were at my parents house for a BBQ and Lily started busting a move... I had to record it!

I hope you enjoy as much as we did!

Park Time!!!

The last few nights Kellie and I have brougt the girls (Lily & Taliyah) to the park... they LOVE it. They both love the slides and get so excited going down them!

Apparently they like the climb the slides the wrong way!!
Lily loved these little windows... she had to get right up on her tip toes to scream "Hiiiii"

We tried to get a pic of them going down at the same time!

Smiles on the ladybug!
Last night Lily had quite the fall trying to climb the stairs to the slide- she slipped and smacked her chin and bit her tongue... she is a little swollen and bruised to day... poor baby. She keeps saying "boo boo ouch"Here are some videos of the girls on the slide!

My Big Girl...

Lily is getting to be such a big girl (although not physically!)... she is talking so much and understands so much- I love it!

Some of my favourite things she says are:
  • No Pease (when she doesn't want something)
  • Ovv you Mommy
  • up pease!
  • Daaadddy!
  • Mommy
  • Miiiiioooo (mylo)
  • paCO
  • Hoc KEY
  • Dowa (Dora)
  • Elmo (in a very high pitched voice)
  • no no no
  • Ugg (hug)

Her giggles are contagious, you just can't help but laugh with her and break into a giant smile! She makes everyone around her so happy! She loves to blow kisses and give hugs!

Lately she has started to mimic... especially at supper. If I take a bite of my meat, she does, if I drink milk, she does... its so cute!

I know I always say I love the stage she is in... but this is my favourite- she is my little sponge, soaking everything in and learning so much! She is so perfect!!

Baby Stuff...

Since we have found out we are having a baby boy we have moved full swing ahead on ordering what we need! The big stuff and a few other things are done:

  • the stroller
  • the bedding
  • a diaper bag
  • a wrap carrier
  • nursing covers
  • and some clothes

But I still need some things, as almost everything we have is pink. We are slowly buying these items as we are out. We are trying to buy as much as we can across the border as they are SOOO much less there- it is really insane!

  • blankets
  • carseat bag
  • more clothes
  • etc

I am really glad most of the larger items we have are gender neutral- and some things I am not worried about them being pink- like the bumbo- for how often we used it I don't mind a boy being in a pink chair- and we only ever used it at home!

Lily seems to be getting excited about baby and realizing what it is... the other day she was pointing at my aunts baby and then my tummy saying "baby... baby". I think she will adjust fairly well when the baby arrives- we are very lucky- she is a great little girl!

Here are some pics of what we have ordered/bought already:

Dora and Elmo!

For the last few months Lily has been obsessed with Elmo and Dora! She has an Elmo and a Dora doll that she brings everywhere with her- to bed, the babysitters, the car, no matter where... and if we forget them- she asks for them!

She goes nuts watching Dora or Elmo on TV, and sings along, plays along, and sometimes gets so excited she falls off her chair!!!

Yesterday I brought Lily to Chapters for a few minutes because we had some extra time- I really think this is her favourite place on earth... I wish I had a camera with me... but I didn't manage to get a sound clip of her getting exciting (I will try to upload). She got SOO excited when we walked in to chapters and kept saying "book book book BOOOOOOK", and it got even cuter when we got to the kids section... she kept saying "oooohhhh, oooooh, BOOOOOOK" and she was dancing really quick on her feet- and then she saw the Dora and Elmo books which were side by side in the 0-2 section- she went NUTS... she was so excited she didn't know what to do- she was dancing and yelling "ooooh- DORA, ooooooooh ELMO" and her little feet were moving so fast she fell over- it was one of the cutest things I have ever seen. I really wish someone else would have been able to see this with me! I actually had a sales person come over laughing and say she had never seen a child so excited about books! We left the store with some Elmo and some Dora books- Lily's new favourites!Here is an audio clip of it.

Last week Lindsay showed Lily a video of her friend dressed as Elmo- Lily was excited, but slightly disturbed... see the video below for her reaction!!

This and That!

Things have been pretty busy around here lately... but I thought I would update with some cuteness!

Lily has been talking sooo much lately- she constantly comes out with new words, so many I can't list! She know a ton of letters- A-G, M, O, P, R, S, T and I am sure more! She can count to 3, but generally just says "one two".

Here are some pics for your enjoyment!
