Lillian Grace: 43 Months







Forty-Three Months
"Big, Small.  Short, Tall.  Left, Right.  Front, Back.  Short, Small!  Big, Tall! Pals All!
~Big, small!  Pals, all! By Disney Enterprises


Weight:   29.5 lbs

Height:   38”

Wearing: 3T,  Size 7 Shoe

Motor Milestones: Lilly is all about boots, she likes to stomp around in her boots, I know the feeling.  She also likes the challenge of doing tricks while wearing her boots.  Jump spins are the new thing and marching is a given while in boots.  And while on the topic of stomping, she has been testing her boundaries again lately and we have seen her stomp her feet quite a few times in resistance to something.  It is interesting to see how tantrums and disagreements at this age are very different from a 2-year old and how reasoning and logic go a long way... taking away privileges is also very effective with Lilly.  Especially, since she is a girl of habit and loves things in an orderly fashion.

Language Milestones: Lillian has picked up some form of toddler-from-the-hood talk.  I might be the one to blame, but I think I sound way more Valley Girl, so we will blame her classmates.  She is very fond of "What, What." accompanied with a pointing hand toward the next person who is supposed to say something...  It is funny and annoying all at the same time.  She is also very big on singing the days of the week lately and asking about what day it is, we have started doing more calender activities at home to go along with her school days.  Even when she knows the actual day, I still like when she calls them "Momma and Lilly Days," or "Family Days."

Highlights:
·        Helped shovel the first big snow fall of the season.
·        Had a great time sledding with Ava down the front hill.
·        Had several play days with Emma and knows just how to make her laugh.
·        Spent Thanksgiving in Concord and Matt's birthday in GR ... A Busy weekend.

Favorites: Continues with Swimming lessons and gymnastics lessons and loves both, got to have a special visit from GiGi and Papa and go out to dinner and breakfast at her favorite place "Cracker Barrel," loves stickers and art time, can't wait for the holiday fun to begin.
