Pictures of Lili

Hi All,

Sorry it has been so long since I blogged about the munchkin. Things have been very busy around here preparing for Zoo Walk on Saturday. Plus the exciting Holiday Book Drive for the St. Peter's Indian Mission School that is coming into play here REALLY soon. I will post more on that later.

I've got a bunch of pictures of the Lil-meister for you to enjoy.

She loves to feed herself now (and notice the beautiful new color on the wall that Matt painted as a surprise).
This is what Lili does in the mornings. She gets her milk and her cheerios, cuddles on the couch and watches the Sprout Channels Sunny Side Up Show with Daddy before starting her day of running around, climbing, running around, screeching at the top of her lungs, running around, eating, running around, sleeping, running around, making a mess, running around, helping Matt unload the dishwasher or sort laundry, running around, and greeting me at the door. Busy busy day!
See above description :-D
This is her REALLLLYYYY missing her mouth. She thought this was hilarious. Then Matt made Mohawk out of it (after he stopped laughing) and I had to wash her hair 3 times before it all came out.
And this was tonight. She used the spoon for awhile, but then, as you can see, she switched to using her whole hand. Quite messy but hilarious. I just love the fact that she wants to do things for herself. She is independent and I think it is great.

I really love this little girl, and I'm so glad I have her in my life. I'm blessed and do my best to treasure her and cherish every moment of her little girl-hood.

Lili's 18-month Checkup

She is still perfect, folks. But we all knew that.

She is in the 97% for head size (genius), 90% for height (tall, 34"), and 70% for weight (skinny, 24.11 pounds). Again, she is a tall, skinny genius. I've said it before, I'll say it again.

I asked about the talking thing. She says about 6 words but doesn't seem to move past that. And she gets frustrated trying to say what she wants to say. The Dr. said there is nothing to worry about. She is fine, no need to panic, and yes I was panicing, but I am calm now. Whew!

I am still going to use the flash cards and sound out words with her. She is having a bit of trouble with sounds and gets frustrated. We'll work on it.

One day she will babble and then the next she'll be talking in full, coherent sentences, just you wait.
