Hello? Is anybody out there?

I hope this post will pop up on a few "follow" lists and catch the attention of an old reader or two:) It's been a lonnnnnng time! With Christmas, Lilly's birthday, the new year and a few rounds of illness, my blogging took a toll and I had very little motivation to keep it going. At one point I told Matt I might just give it up since Lilly had "successfully" made it to 1 and he reminded me that this is her baby book and baby books don't end at 1.

So, here I am!

Lilly had a wonderful birthday party with a Winter Onederland theme. She had friends and family pack the living room with love and hubbub. Despite still being a picky eater at the time, she dug into her giant chocolate birthday cupcake and made a great big mess! It was great and I was so happy she wasn't afraid to get her fingers messy.

She is now walking, eating everything in sight, taking just a bedtime bottle, and saying "Mama", "Dada", "BuBa" (that's the dog", and "Dog". She puts her socks on her foot (and by on, I mean on top, not actually ON her foot), points to things, mimics her daddy sticking out her tongue, signs when she's all done and says "Aaa daah" (all done), and today for the very first time ordered a school lunch! She also pooped in the potty a few nights ago! It was a total fluke and my way of preventing a floaty in the bathtub, but hey, the girl did not freak out and continued right along with her business when her tushy hit the porcelain!

Here are a couple pictures from a few weeks ago when Lilly entertained herself with toilet paper while I got ready for work. It was better than anything made by Fisher Price and when she was finished, we just rolled in back up and it was good to go for the next user! (Actually, we left it for Matt to see when he got home for work!)

Welcome back to blogging! =)

Lilly's getting so big! Those pics are too funny. My 3 year old still plays with TP! Can't get her to stop. I think I'll just buy her some for her birthday.
