Lillian Grace: 13 Months Old

  Thirteen Months

On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you, and the night wind whispered, “Life will never be the same.”  Because there had never been anyone like you…ever in the world.
~ On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman



Weight:   16.5oz

Height:   27”

Wearing: Size Nine Months

Motor Milestones: Lilly has been starting to run and her “old” crawling game of tag is a thing of the past.  Watch out, when she starts going she will catch you every time.  Mrs. Whiskers has learned this the hard way.

Language Milestones: Bird is her new “it” word, she loves to see and hear birds.  Our yard is a perfect place for our budding ornithologist; she must say bird at least 50 times a day since we have so many cardinals, blue jays, oriels, finches, sparrows and woodpeckers in the yard.

Highlights:
  • Attended her first Tigers vs. Twins game outside the womb and spent the long Memorial Day weekend in Minnesota.
  • Crossed the border to Canada for a fun family wedding.
  • Ate goldfish crackers in her car seat on the way through Chicago.

Favorites:  Animal crackers, cheese, salami, kitty, jumping on the bed, running in her crib and swimming.
