Lillian Grace: 48 Months



 


Forty-Eight Months
"All these cats, they like one thing.  All these cats, they like to sing."
~Too Many Cats By Lori Haskins Houran


Weight:   32 lbs

Height:   39”

Wearing: 4/5,  Size 7.5 Shoe

Motor Milestones: We have made it through the Spring and we have yet to have a major accident, which is surprising, since Lilly continues to be daring, crazy and full of energy.  Her favorite thing to do on a beautiful afternoon, is put on her bike helmet, jump on her trike and ride on over to Ava's house to see if she can come out to play.  It is such a blessing to have a quite neighborhood and a wonderful neighbor that will play with Lilly between the houses.  She seems so grown-up now that she takes the initiative to ride on over to Ava house with me "just watching."
Language Milestones: We found a book series at the library that works with sound families and Lilly has taken to them, we had to renew them online, since we have had them so long.  She is a very interesting girl to interact with as she reads, the first time through the book, she is happy to listen, the second time she gets frustrated very easily if she doesn't catch on right away, the third time and on she is very good at rolling with the book and reading the words.  It will be interesting to see how this progresses with the rest of her learning skills as she starts Pre-K this fall.

Highlights:
·        Went to see the butterflies a very special yearly event for us.
·        Helped host Easter, making sure the table was set and decorated, just perfectly.
·        Played, Played, Played outside on everyday possible.
·        Helped Mama pack for her conference, a week at GiGi & Papa's and Disney. Whew!

Favorites: Riding Her Trike with Ava in the driveway and cul-du-sac, going for nature walks, collecting things and putting them in little boxes or bags, playing with baby Lucy in her secret room and celebrating the many birthday's we have this month.
