Motor Milestones: Lillian truly believes that Summer is the time for somersaults.  She loves to front roll in the house, in the grass, in the neighbors yard.  She just can't get enough.  Our lovely neighbor gals have been spending lots of time with Lilly outside playing and they indulge her in her favorite things ... running, tag, water sports, etc..  It has been such a joy to have them around this Summer.

LanguageMilestones: We have a 15 year old in a 2 year old body, that is the only way to explain it.  Lillian doesn't stop talking, even in her sleep, she has things to say.  Some times they are so silly, like when she told us that she was mad a the lion for eating her diaper ... some times they are so profound like when she asks us what we are thinking about.  She really surprised us the other day when we were conversing with Aunnie and Jake and Lilly was just listening and then with out missing a beat, she interjected into the conversation with an appropriate phrase.  Not the usual, pay attention to me words, but she was listening to the conversation and had something to say.  The four of us had a good laugh!
