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."
~The Very Lonely Firefly By Eric Carle


Weight:   28 lbs

Height:   37”

Wearing: 2T-3T,  Size 6.5 Shoe

Motor Milestones: It has taken most of this past month, but Lilly has finally learned how to pump on the swing and pedal her trike.  Last year she was able to use her feet to motor around on her trike, but her legs didn't reach the pedals, this summer, her legs finally reach.  Once she was able to get the motion down she has become unstoppable.  She especially when we let her ride it on the driveway. Now we have to work on her off-roading skills and turning radius.

Language Milestones: It is not a stretch to claim that Lillian is 3 going on 83.  Some of her favorite things are reserved for those of another generation, for example she loves Cracker Barrel AND Books on Tapes... the fact that there are books on tape at Cracker Barrel is the cherry on top.  Anyway, she has found a love of books on tape, especially at bedtime and in the car.  Currently she is enjoying working her way through the Eric Carle box set in the car and various Disney Princess stories as she falls asleep at night.  I hope someday Lilly has a best friend that likes to listen to books on tape on long road trips, as much as Katie and I did.

Highlights:
·        Spent the weekend at Kalahari water park  
·        Visited the Eye Dr. & Dentist with good check-ups 
·         Had a lovely visit at Rose's with Aunt Pat and Uncle Ron
·         Went to the Children's Museum & Library Story Time with Shandi

Favorites: Library story time, checking out books with her own library card, putting together her name with cuttings from magazine, pointing out what words start with what letters, acting out songs and rhymes.
