Whew, sorry poor little neglected Lilli Bug. It's been a while since I posted a little update on you!
You've been walking since the end of December, actually you took your first steps the day we lost Gandee. I guess you knew we needed cheering up and are pretty darn fast. You can climb the heck out of some playground equipment and love going down the slides by yourself. We try to go on walks/bike rides now that it's getting warmer. You're not really that big of a fan of riding in the basket on the back with brother, but you love to go for rides in the stroller.
Good night are you talking now! You can say:
Juice, night-night, bye-bye, conner, dada, daddy, momma, opa(po-pa), oma(mo-ma), leesh(yeesh), shoes, diego,(deeo) spongebob,(buggebob) please(pease), me, stop(top), gracee, egg, candy (nene).
You love, love, love swimming in the tub, and I can't wait to get you in the pool this summer. Right now you have your four center teeth on the top and bottom and one in on the top right in the back. You eat EVERYTHING, and a lot of it. I told daddy last week that you were going to be his beer and steak partner. At night after dinner we've been putting you and Conner and our shoulders and "racing" back and forth across the living room.
Your laugh is awesome. So loud and contagious. Your hair is still red and still curly. Everyone comments when we go out. Most of the family says that you are "a little me" and I hope only in the best ways. Sometimes I think I should have a little card to carry around with us that has your picture on it with a caption that says, "I don't have time for bullshit".
Happy 18 months bug.
