Lil slept at my parents' last night and Quinn is napping so I actually have time and two hands to say hello to you all!!
Queenie! I can't believe Ellie is such a big girl already! Love the one of her brushing her teeth with Killy!
Liz ~ Where are you in the moving process??
How's Bella's apt go Rynna?
|Killy's been such a chatterbox! DH didn't understand it fully until he drove him somewhere yesterday... when he got home he said, "Good grief he talks all the time!" No kidding! We have to say hi and bye to every train, tractor, and truck we see. We have to talk bout all the playgrounds, pools, dogs, bicycles, and motorcycles.
Oh yeah. I have to remind my DH to slow down when he's driving. The other day he blew right past a farm with horses up close to the road. I made him turn around and go back so Lily could see the horses and talk to them. It only takes a second and it makes her SO happy!
Lily's also VERY obsessed with names. Every time we pass someone walking a dog she says "What's the doggie's name, mama?" Sometimes I make up names because she seems so dissatisfied with me saying "I don't know" all the time.
I also have to ask random people in stores, the person who pumps our gas, cashiers, baggers etc. what their names are. And the crazy thing is that she remembers them and will talk about "Billy, the very nice man who pumps our gas" for days. Oh and any time the phone rings...after I hang up she'll say. "That was..." and wait for me to tell her. So cute!
Her language continues to explode. Yesterday I was upstairs getting dressed and she was outside on our front deck (gated). She yelled..."Mama I need help. I'm a little bit caught in the chair on the porch." I was like wow!
That is SO cool. Her language is so precise that I knew exactly what she needed from upstairs where I couldn't even see her. Neat.
I gave up on potty learning for a bit. We're still doing some outside nakey time in the morning and we've caught a few pees...and even one poo...but neither of us is ready to really do full on potty training right now.
Quinn is doing great! 8 weeks on Monday - already 13 pounds!! And he's a sleeper!!
Does 4 hour stretches at night. Oh and we did buy a king size mattress. DH haggled us a great deal and picked up in our truck so it didn't break the bank too badly. Amazing. We are all sleeping SO much better now that we're not on top of each other.
That's about it here.
Are you guys doing fireworks? We're going to try. We were invited to our friends beach house for a potluck picnic and we can stay for fireworks but they won't start until probably like 9:30 so I just don't know if Lily can last that long.
