Growing up so fast!

Lily was 18months last week... growing up so fast! I can't believe my baby girl is no longer a baby- she is a toddler! She runs, climbs, talks, dances, everything! She cracks us up all the time!

This afternoon I brought her to the doctors for her 18m check up and shots... she was fine until we were in the exam room... and then she freaked out until we left! She got 2 needles today, poor baby! When she got the needles she was sitting on my lap with just a diaper on... well she got so upset when she got the needles that she peed so much it leaked out the sides of the diaper and ALL over my pants- made it look like I peed myself! She was much happier once we got out of there and headed home!

So we have also been trying to prepare Lily a bit for the baby... last week we decided to get Lily a baby boy doll and a stroller- she has been very into feeding her babies, hugging and kissing them. She loves pushing her baby doll around!

We have also recently stopped using bottles in our house, and she only gets her beaka(soother) in her crib. She did great with these- and she actually initiated the no bottles- she started asking for cups!

By the end of this month Lily should be in her big girl bed- which is my old bed that my Dad built when I was a little girl... Nelson is going to sand and paint it for her! We have already purchased some big girl bedding, and Lily's Ava is making her curtain valance. We (Nelson) is also going to finish an armoir for Lily. Our plan is to take the crib down once the bed is ready- and we will put it in the basement for a bit... we don't want her to feel like we are just giving it to the baby- so I have heard that is easiest if it is down for a little bit! I am really looking forward to Lily being in a bed- it will be MUCH easier for me to get her in and out of bed, and to lay with her... my belly is really starting to get in the way!!

Lily is growing up so fast- we love her more and more everyday- she is just one amazing little girl!!

I will post pictures soon- we are going to attempt some pictures at Zehrs for her 18m... but the Valentine's and Easter ones didn't go over so well!

Oh I can't believe the time has come already to move her to her big girl bed, how exciting. She is growing up way to fast. Let me know how the transition goes and what works best, we will be following in your footsteps pretty soon. I want to see pictures of you mama and that baby and of course pictures of Miss Lily too!! I hope all is well.
