Welcome Baby Emma Elizabeth


It was an extra special Friday the 13th, nothing bad about that day for us.  In fact it was just the opposite a very exciting and joyful day, as Lillian go to meet her cousin Emma Elizabeth for the very first time.  She was instantly smitten with her and being the Ms. Independent that she is, she was ready for full on Babysitting Duty, including holding her, calming her and dressing her up.  We of course had to start with baby-steps, but I can already see these two are going to have lots of fun growing up together.

Lillian Grace: 37 Months




Thirty-Seven Months
"When all was quiet, the firefly flew through the night flashing its light, looking and searching again.  Then the very lonely firefly saw what it had been looking for.  A group of fireflies, flashing their lights.  Now the firefly wasn't lonely anymore."

Toddler Tuesday At The Children's Museum


It has been such a precious experience to see Shandi and Lilly grow up together.  They were born 6 weeks apart and were instant friends.  However, as with all relationships, they have had their bumps along the way.  Spats about sharing toys, disappointment over taking turns, upset about non-matching toys, etc..  But recently they have turned a new developmental corner and they are now in a "mini-adult" phase.  We recently went to the Children's Museum and I noticed , they have their own conversations that don't involve Teresa and I.  They automatically take turns and sharing she much easier now.  I am so excited to see how their friendship continues to develop over the years.
