Lily really liked her cousin Emma's house that we started to look for one for our home. Cousin Kathy was having a garage sale and we got Lily a new playhouse, jungle jim, kitchen, and her first Jeep! (I'll post pictures of her playing with the other stuff later). I'm not sure if she likes opening and closing the doors more or "talking" on the phone.
We try to take Bean, Winnie and Lily for a walk every night after dinner, weather permitting. If we have time we'll walk across the field to the park to play for a bit. Bean and Winnie love to run in the field. Winnie tries to chase the birds and we laugh. Lily is starting to like the swings, but she still prefers the slides.
Aleks was in town and took some family pictures for us at Independence Grove. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor so we didn't get as many shots as we had hoped for. Lily had only been walking for a couple of days, so she did better than I had expected. Aleks was even able to capture Lily getting up on her own for the first time. :)
Lily has discovered a new love for the heating/ac vents. Every time she's by them and it turns on, she has to put her face down to have the wind blow on her face. She has also discovered her belly button. The first couple days after she found it, it was bright red because she has to put her finger in it every.single.time!
We took Lily to Lamb's Farm to see all the animals, ride the train and carousel. We got to see the animals, ride the train and after lunch were going to ride the carousel, but didn't. We'll have to go back again for a ride. Lily had a great time and would get so excited each time she'd see a new animal. She also got to see a turtle in the little discovery barn.
~Lily's favorite word right now is turtle.~
I thought that once Lily started to walk that I'd have more time to blog...boy was I wrong! I don't know what I was thinking! Here are some pictures from the end of April and May to get you caught up on how she's doing! Lily also started walking on her own May 14th and she's been off and running ever since.
