Lilly is 2 1/2

Hi Everyone:

Well I wanted to wait another 11 months before you guys got an update. Its been 13 months actually.

Mike and I moved from New Hampshire to Massachusetts in October. Mike works south of the city so we needed to split our commute.

Our dog Twiggy died Easter. She was 14. I was devastated. Lilly tells me she is in Heaven.

Lilly is now 2.6 years old! She is SO much fun! She is at the JCC and will be moving to Pre-K in December.

Lilly enjoys TV so I have to restrict her time on watching. Otherwise she would be in our bedroom ALL day! She can ride her tricycle. She can jump. She knows her ABC's, 1-10 in english and spanish! She is a very bright little girl.

We have her in gymnastics at the Little Gym. She will be moving to a competitive gym in January. She will also probably take dance and T-Ball.

Lilly loves her friends at school. She paints, sings, pizza on Wednesday, swims. Its a Great daycare!

I am currently with a new company doing exactly the same thing! However I now have the city and Northshore! That's a great thing.

Time Ticks On

Ok when I got on this site this evening I realized the last Blog Lilly was 11 months old. Yes, basically I fell off the face of the earth. Sorry people life has been rough.

So work and having a baby is hard. 11 months let me get you all updated. Lilly strolled then she walked, now she is running. Lilly no longer has a Binky. We got rid of that a while back. Thank goodness. She does have a bottle but only in the middle of the night. I need to break this habit. But currently I am battling my 8th sinus infection, so I am lazy. Lilly is eating ALL foods. I try to not focus on junk but again work then home I become lazy. Lilly has chosen a few words to say: Deddy, Bye, and Hi. I get momma when she is in trouble, tired, or cranky. She has learned to blow kisses and wave. She knows how to open every drawer in the house, shut every door, and currently un-rolling toilet paper has hit an all time high for her.

Lilly is now in Little Munchkins at the Children's Center. She still Loves school. She also brings home every sickness to Mommy. Awesome!

This summer Lilly, Mike, and I will be traveling to Delaware and Destin Florida. We are looking forward to both.

As for Mike and I, we made it out of one of the worst winters in NH history. I would say 76 inches of snow accumulation sounds right. It just snowed Saturday!!! UGH. We are SO ready for summer.

A Nice Weekend

Hi everyone,

It was a busy weekend!

Saturday we woke up to discover Baby Tink had a bottom tooth. That makes 3 on the bottom. We got ready and drove to Boston for Kristen Serratore's daughter's 9th birthday! It was a lot of fun. Lilly enjoyed being around all the girls and ate some cake too. Then we headed to North End and ate at our favorite Restaurant Massimino. Lilly was AMAZING. She ate her usual sweet potato and chicken but then decided a cracker and mozzarella cheese was good too. She was so calm no cries. Just a perfect baby. We are allowed to return. :) We changed her into her pj's and headed home. Arrived at 10pm to a very Happy Shih tzu.

Today we woke up to discover to more front teeth! So that is 4 top teeth now. W`1ee had Daddy's famous Blueberry pancakes and sausage. All enjoyed!!! Then Baby Tink and Mommy cleaned house. Daddy went to the dump. Yes here in Wolfeboro we do not have a garbage man. We have to do our own garbage and we recycling.

Lilly and I worked on her Thanksgiving cards. We got 1/2 done. I have to say they are VERY cute.

Mommy cooked cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and vege mix. blended everything up ready to eat for the week. Twiggy keeps reminding me its time to eat it now!

OK pics will be posted soon.

Lilly in Wolfeboro, NH

OH my gosh.... Are we all shocked that I got the Blog done? I am! After a good 3 hours I am finally caught up. Well we are missing the apple picking pics but once Mike finds those we are good to go.

So everyone wants to know about Lilly. Well let's jump from 7 months to almost 10 months!!! She recently went for her 9 month check up. She is almost 20lbs and is 27 and something inches. She can now stand and at times on her own. She is a speedy crawler. Nothing can stop her. She knows how to wave a little bit and say hey. She has 4 teeth. 2 top 2 bottom. Her hair is my color, a light red brown, and is getting curly in the back. She is now eating new foods like crackers with apple butter, pancakes, brussel sprouts, and cheese. Her and Twig get along very well. That is a shocker from the time we had "When Shi Tzuhs attack" episode.

She has had her 1st plane ride and her 1st road trip. We are spending Thanksgiving in Lewes, DE this year and Christmas in Wolfeboro, NH.

I have to say Mike and I are so lucky to have such an amazing daughter!!! Enjoy the pics. More to come and soon.

Our Big Adventure

Wow so much has happened in 2 weeks.

First Gigi went home after 4 months of living next door to us. We were invited out Thursday for Happy Hour. Mike response was "Um, no we have to deal with reality now..I am a parent. " No more Glorified babysitter. She was absolutely great. Let's see how long she lasts. :)

Lilly's first day at school started Wednesday. She pretty much looks at me and if she could talk she would say:" Mommy get out of here. I got things to do like ride on my train and swing and take Max's toys away. Beat it already." She adapted the very first day. She is amazing when it comes to pre-school. She LOVES it! Don't get me wrong we miss our Vivi (nanny). She will be here this Friday night watching Lilly for us.

Lilly also got in the pool for the first time. She loves that too. We go to the pool at least once every weekend and once during the weekday. She is a water baby.

The other big thing Mike and I have been doing almost everyday is walking 5 miles. The entire family goes. Yep Twiggy rides in the Bob as well. Today we even added the run to it. However we started at 12 in 90 degree heat. So it about killed us both. Lilly sleeps pretty much the entire way. Twiggy is upfront getting her breeze on and just happy to participate.

I cannot believe Lilly with be 5 months on the 19th. Everybody is very correct when they say time goes by so fast. She is in love with her butterfly toy. Oh and her new thing is the bathroom paper cups. She has to have one in her hand all the time. Who knows.

Lilly is teething a bit. Nothing we cannot handle. A little chewing on baby bottle nipples. Nothing major yet. I have been told frozen bananas. Also Lilly prefers to walk not even attempting to crawl. She wants me to hold her in standing position all the time while she tries to walk everywhere. If I put her down you think the world was coming to an end.

Currently she is in her door swing. She is quite the entertainer with herself. We pretty much can just sit back and relax. That is a wonderful thing.

More later. Go Flyers!!
