Lilly said Mama!
Eli said Dada first, so I'm extra excited to be the first word this time around.
When she's whining, because she's getting hungry or tired, she says "maaa ma ma ma ma maaa". I was so excited that I let her whine a little longer than normal on the first day, just so I could hear Mama. Ben didn't think this was so nice, but hey, Mom's need those little reminders that we're loved. I don't think she's too traumatized!

Eli's zoo favorites don't have anything to do with animals. He loves the tractor , the construction on the ape exhibit and the photo booth. I don't think he even knows what the photo booth does, he just likes to sit in his own little house and push the buttons!

Eli used the camera in the car on the way home. Here's the closest thing I have of a recent picture of myself!

Lilly's sock hatred has reached a whole new level!
Apparently it's not enough to take her own socks off.

Enjoying the Sunshine

Lilly has been making some funny faces lately. She wrinkles up her nose and breathes in and out really fast, apparently this is really funny because she cracks herself up every time. She's growing up so fast, scooting everywhere, rocking on her hands and knees and eating baby food like mad. She no longer my little baby who just lays there, she's super squirmy and yells at me when she isn't getting what she wants fast enough. Oh my, the time just goes by way too fast.

Eli has been loving his bike. We go on a ride almost daily, either at a park or just around the block. On Saturday we went to Blue Lake Regional Park and had a blast. Eli rode his bike around the wetlands, threw some rocks, played on the playground, and dug in the sand. It was a beautiful 65 degree day, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks Tonks for joining us, we all had so much fun. I'm sure we'll be headed back again sometime soon, it was a great find.

New Suit

We have a membership to the pool, but haven't gone since Lilly was born. I think it's high time to get this girl in the water, so we got a swim suit (can you tell I'm just loving having a girl to shop for?). Hillsboro SHARC here we come!
