Loves watching Brother play outside. She (and I) can't wait till she can go out there with him.
Tells "stories"- non stop babbling

Oh, Oh 
Points at things 
Loves to pull fabric/clothing out/off of anything:
boxes, hampers, drawers closets, 
Especially as Mom is folding laundry.
Love getting into exploring everything.
Like the Trash and Recycling cans.
Loves Shoes! 
Everywhere we go she is watching people's shoes as they walk by.
Loves to Eat and mostly enjoys self feeding
Loves all veggies especially Cauliflower
Loves tomatoes just like her big brother.
Eats Cheese and Crackers as an afternoon snack
In fact, she loves to eat so much that she puts everything in her mouth.
Her favorite thing to eat:
my shoes.
(I feel like I'm describing a puppy dog. A very cute puppy dog :)

Knows her shoes and socks go on her feet. It is too cute to watch her try to get them on.
Stills sucks her thumb when she is tired or over stimulated.
Breastfeeding is still going strong. We nurse to sleep for naps and bedtime and sometimes when we just need a cuddle.

She has blond hair and Green Eyes.

They're so adorable!!! I wish you lived next door!!

I like that Ethan tells stories to the squirrels! And it's exciting that Lily can say all those words already! It's so much fun to hear little ones talk; you find out all the things that are going through their minds and it's usually really interesting.

Did I tell you that when Fairlight was about Lily's age, she used to have to try on every piece of clothes after I folded laundry? I had to learn to fold when she was sleeping if I wanted to get anything done.

What two beautiful children you and Eli have created!!! They are so very precious to me! Yes, I wish you lived next door to me, too!! It is so very nice you will have so many things and pictures to help you remember them when they were little. As you get older you tend to forgot lots of things your little ones did.
Thank you for all your wonderful posts!! They make me laugh and cry and have much joy!
Love Mom
