A lot happened this last week. Now that the OTHER baby has gone home, Lily has stopped wanting to be awake for 2-3 hours in the middle of the night (yippee). Ryan and I had a successful first weekend away from the peanut. She did really well for her Nani and Papa during the day, but did want to be awake to hang out in the middle of the night...sorry Mom and Dad! She seems to have developed a bit of separation anxiety with me this past week. Probably springing another child on her for two weeks then immediately leaving town without her for the weekend wasn't the best idea. I do enjoy the extra snuggles, but not the massive tears that stream down her sweet cheeks any time I try to leave the room. It is nice to be loved.
She is so close to walking. She stands without touching things for a long time and takes a couple of steps here and there, but nothing that we would count as her "first steps"...yet.
Her words are coming slowly but surely. As of right now I'm pretty sure she says all of the following: Mama, Dada, baby, hi, please, cheese (please and cheese may be the same word), up, possibly sock. Anyway, it's cute.
Also...SO MANY KISSES. Anytime someone shows up or leaves, she blows them a kiss. Or if she just feels like it randomly...kisses. Sometimes she is just trotting by and decides you deserve to be blown a couple of kisses, with the noise and everything. Heart.
