So everyone tells me that the two’s aren’t terrible, it’s the three’s that are.
The two’s in this house, with my little independent lady, are tough.
Lila’s been fiercely independent since birth. “Don’t hold me. Don’t touch me. Get off of me. Let me be.”
She’s the same today. Throw in some frustrating bi-lingual communication and we all need time-outs.
I love that she’s so independent and so strong willed. I am convinced these traits will serve her well in the future. It’s just that today, well… it’s not easy.
Lila’s favorite things right now: Blue’s Clues, painting, play-doh, her cousins Bella and Brody, swimming, her Daddy, her kitchen, Night, Night Little Pookie (the book), puzzles, gluesticks, necklaces, hand-me-down pajamas from her cousin which she reminds us everyday that they are, “Aubrey’s” and macaroni and cheese.
Lila’s least favorite things right now: Going to bed and napping, doing anything she doesn’t want to do.
My favorite thing?
When something happens that pleases Lila, she announces “Lila happy. Me happy.” And she pronounces, “happy” like “Hop-pee.” It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever.
She makes me hop-pee, too.
P.S. School is going well. She seems to like it. And for those of you who asked — yes, it is bi-lingual.
Here are some recent pics…
Someone loves play-doh.
Every kid needs a robe. (It was $7 at Mega, our local grocery store. Um, worth every penny.)
Oh, I love this kid.
Attitude. 🙂 (When did her hair get so long?)
It rained a week or so ago. It was a BIG deal around here.
Someone is also super good at babywearing and wrinkling her nose when I ask her to smile.
Yes, she’s computing while walking. BUSY girl.
Someone likes puzzles.
Lila had cheetos for the first time ever on Labor Day. Um. They were a hit.
Hugging Daddy after a bath. 🙂
Reading with my sweet baby.
Lila, smile?! Please!
Lila, please smile.
[and that’s the face you get.]
I love these shoes.
Care to see C.’s newest project for Lila?
It’s a pink lapdesk. She loves it. It is soooo cute. It’s also strong enough for Lila to stand on. Trust me. She already tried it.
And, we painted recently.
Someone had a great time.
Mid-way through we added shaving cream to the paint. It was a hit.
Please notice the shaving cream/paint on her legs.
Ah, my sweet baby.
Happy week, everyone.
